Happy Easter!

Well, our Easter didn't start out as planned. We managed to completely sleep through our alarms and wake up about the time church was starting.  So instead of sitting on that fact we starting boiling eggs and getting things ready for our Easter dinner.  Plans were to get things started, head out in the boat for a while since it was so pretty out, come home hunt eggs and eat.  How it went... momma stayed home and cooked, Peyton napped, Dean, Curt, Mary and the other kids all went out in the boat till it got a bit cold, Aunt Kim came out, then we hunted eggs and got fat on food. HA!  It was no matter what a great day because we all got to spend time together... I wouldn't change that for anything.

Family Easter

We all got together today at the last min for our family Easter dinner and egg hunt.  I say last min because plans had actually not been made for Sunday when we always get together since everyone had made other plans.. well.. except us, haha!  After discovering this Deanna starting talking with her mom and some how we ended up getting everyone together for today!  I can never get enough of having family together. I know what I love most about my childhood was getting together for big dinners with all my dad's side of the family.  I want that for my kids too.  So after eating and hunting eggs the kids {and bigger kids} went fishing... and we're actually catching fish!!!

We had an awesome day at the zoo today with our cousins!!  We live 3 hours apart and don't see each other often but they have been such a great support system in the last year and half with everything.  We did absolutely everything today!  I can't remember the last time the kids and I did that!  Rode the carousel twice, seen the butterflies, seen the dinosaurs and played with sting rays.  It was seriously a great day!
