Happy Easter!! I hope all my Southern Utah friends still managed to have a good Easter celebration aside from that cold wind! We had a great weekend packed with family, friends & food!
Saturday we had lunch at my moms house with all the extended family and because of the unfortunate but not surprising weather, we were all crammed in the house most of the day. Of course the kids didn't let the cold wind stop them from having an Easter egg hunt!
Sadly, Ethan had to be up in Draper at a training at Camp Williams for the weekend. I always tell him the Army needs a woman in charge of scheduling, it seems they always choose the worst weekends! Luckily he was able to get back early Saturday night and do a little Easter outing with some friends. I even surprised him with an Easter basket filled with goodies on his pillow since he missed the hunt.
Easter Sunday turned out to be beautiful weather! We actually got the whole family back together again for Charlee's baby blessing and lots more yummy food. Sunday was just such a nice calm day to enjoy family and reflect on our savior. I know my savior lives & I know he loves me. I know because of the atonement that he performed we have the opportunity to repent and be forgive so we can be together with our families in his presence forever. I'm grateful for that source of peace, today and always. #becauseofHim we get to spend this beautiful life & eternity!
Ethan really enjoyed this last training because they were able to fly in a Blackhawk helicopter. I'm glad they manage to have some fun among all that hard work and training.
While he was away, I stayed with my family in Hurricane. All the girls got together for a bike ride Friday morning. It was originally intended to get some good exercise, but turned into a nice casual ride with all the kids strapped to the back of each bike! Still a lot of fun to get out in the fresh air & visit with the girls!
Baby Charlee & I on her blessing day :) I'm blessed with the best & cutest nieces/nephews!
