Happy Easter

What a beautiful Easter today has been! Barry and I teach the CTR 8 class and lucky for me it was my turn to give the lesson. Of course it was on the resurrection! What a great lesson! I think I learned more about the resurrection than the girls did. I am so graetful for my Savior and his sacrifice for all of us. The knowledge that we will be able to see all of our family members and friends again someday is so wonderful. I am grateful that I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

As a family we had a wonderful weekend full of Easter Egg hunts a great times with family. Here are a few pictures :)

The annual dying of the eggs. Well actually this is the first time we
have done this since we have had kids.

What a cheese ball!!

Blowing Bubbles!! Look at that face, so cute!

Isn't she pretty???

Look who found us at Grandma's!!
Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail!!

I LOVE this particular bunny!! Betcha can't guess who's in the suit???

The young cousins and their loot.

On a side note, I have decided to work on little physical self improvement. Yep that's right! Time to hit the weight loss train hard core. I have done it before so I know I can do it again. You know when you look in the mirror and what you think you look like in your head isn't what you see. Well that's where I am at. I haven't been happy for awhile and am ready to put some action into changing it. I have decided to join Weight Watchers again and really take control of my eating. No more eating out as much. Focusing on nice healthy meals and working out EVERYDAY. So now that this is out in the public, please do not feed the animals (aka me) any junk food! Thanks to all!! I'll keep you updated on my progress. PS for my first week I am still working on avoiding junk food. Easter Candy isn't helping with this.

St. George Round 1

This past weekend we packed up and headed for the warm sunny weather of the south. However, it wasn't at all warm and it snowed from home to Cedar City and then rained all day Saturday. Then Sunday was finally a decent day. Definitely not swimming weather but, nice.

Saturday, the kids hung out with Barry and cousin Tayler at home while I judged a dance competition. So much fun to see all the amazing studios that are out there!

Sunday we of course headed to the outlets where I bought Andrew his Easter outfit. We spent the weekend just relaxing and enjoying a much needed break from out everyday lives. Sometimes its nice to step out of reality.

Here are some picture of our adventure!!

Shopping at the outlets!

A girl after my own heart. She insisted on carrying her bag everywhere!

At the playground in Grandpa's condo!

One of her best pictures. This was after she took a head dive down the stairs!
Poor kid.

We will be heading back down to St. George at the end of the month for our annual softball trip. So, stay tuned for round 2 of our adventure.
