Easter Fun and Spring Sunburns!

Spring has arrived! This is Lady Hiva's favorite season and we both enjoy the warm weather and the flowers. Downtown Salt Lake City is breathtaking this time of year.

We have tried to get out and enjoy it as much as possible. In fact, for Easter weekend Lady Hiva found an Easter Egg event at Thanksgiving Point and we went to see how it was. Needless to say, it was worth it! The weather was beautiful! The sky was deep blue and the flowers were displayed in shocking color (I know, I know it sounds too perfect, but it really was).

The first egg hunt was at 1030h and then every half hour after that. The fields were divided up by age group and there were hundreds of eggs in each field. Lucky Dragon was SO fast at picking them up, it was as if he was a vacuum. We left with a large rubbish bag full of plastic eggs. In between the egg hunts we rode the tractor trains, ate at the food trucks and Lucky Dragon played on the bounce houses. It was really well done and we would go back again. It was organized, there was enough for everyone and the best part is we didn't have to do the work--no making the foo, no renting the bounce houses, no stuffing the eggs...we just showed up and enjoyed!

Sunday morning we woke up to our house looking like the Easter Bunny exploded eggs everywhere. Lucky Dragon was so excited. It was a chore to get him ready for Church.  As always, Church on Easter is amazing. The true focus on all that our Savior did for us so that we can become better people--what an amazing part of life to be thankful for and celebrate. To learn about the true meaning of Easter we talked about Christ and did traditional Spring activities--planting flowers, painting eggs and Lady came up with other projects to do with an activity toddler.
