Happy Easter!!!

We had a pretty good Easter this year. Nothing too fancy and exciting, just a nice beautiful day with family.



I made these little gift bags for our Sunbeam class. They were pretty excited about them.
Afton made Jax's day by playing tug-a-war with him.
Mya, she's such a funny girl.
Clint and Brit
Along with celebrating Easter, we celebrated Caleb, Libby, and my cousin Carly's birthday.

Caleb got new baseball gloves
Libby got a new swimming suit and swimming coat thingy. My mom never use to pick out cute clothes for me when I was young, now she has great taste and is always getting the grand kids the cutest things! Something is not fair here.


And the Hunt Begins!!!


Mya

McKay
Hayden, and even Jax wanted in on the fun.
Now that Caleb is 13, he's way to old to participate in this kind of thing, but he did get to hide the eggs. I'm sure he thought that was pretty cool.
Lexi showing off her goods.
Bradley, it was way too bright to look at Clint.


So I am always amazed how much Jax grows from month to month. Here he is this year...

...And here he is last year. He was so little! Not like he's really big now, but wow, he was tiny!
Afton, Libby, and Lexi jumping on the tramp.
Mya and McKinsey playing house. Just kidding Kinse.
The boys playing B-Ball

WOW they can jump!!!

Ok, so maybe they can't jump that high.

McKay could care less about playing with the cousins, he just wants to play on Grandpa's toys.
Doug, Lexi, Mya, and Libby taking turns on the swings
Now this was funny. Jax found Brit so interesting. Cricket has a picture of Jax actually on top of Brit licking him.
He just couldn't figure out why he would make that kind of noise.
Jax: "Hey big guy, put that little thing back down on the ground so he can play with me."
He was pretty worn out after taking care of Brit.
The newest addition to the family, Collin Jay. He's Lori and Kyle's. Born on April Fools Day.
Collin and Brit meeting for the first time. The funniest thing about this whole thing was Lori's little girl Lexi. She kept asking her mom, "Mom, do you know which one is ours? Mom don't get them mixed up. Mom are you sure that one is ours?"
They are only a month or so apart from each other, but Brit is so much bigger! No worries though, if Collin is anything like his other brother's and sister, he'll catch up in no time.
As soon as Lori saw Jax coming, she was very quick to get Collin off the ground.
I was attacked this day. You may be thinking attacked by a cat, Jax, or even one of the nieces or nephews? You would be wrong, it was a lamp shade! Don't ask me how, I just know that it hurt really bad!

We ended our day with a trip to the U to see Clint's dad. Clint said that he as made a turn for the worst since he last saw him Wednesday. I sure hope that he will be able to get better soon, all this up and down can be very draining on everyone. We love you Jim and Patti and are praying for you all the time! Hang in there.

On our way to pick up Jax from my parents, our Jeep started making some really funny noises. Great! Just what we need is an other expense. Luckily my dad was able to fix the problem the next day for $45. Thanks dad! You saved us!


And that was the end of our Easter. It went by way to fast, but is sure was nice to visit with family and enjoy the much needed sunshine.
