Easter 2017

I love Easter season. I love the spring, and the colors that come with it. I love the meaning behind Easter and the focus on the Savior. I love the traditions, and I just love this holiday! We celebrated several times for a couple weeks an enjoyed thinking about the reason for the Easter season. 
The weekend before Easter we did the traditional Easter Egg dying!! My kids still really enjoy this!
On Good Friday the kids had no school. That means we got to play with the cousins at Grandma and Grandpa's house! We had an Easter egg hunt, played games, went on an adventure to the park, and then decorated cupcakes!
Channing and Charlotte were getting better at learning to pump themselves on the swing. Then they decided going sideways would be more fun! We had a nice time with the cousins!
On Saturday we went to Cavin's football game which he did awesome at. He scored a touchdown and played hard! Then I went to a baptism, haircut, and then in the evening we went with 5 other families to Deer Park and had dinner, an Easter Egg Hunt, and played Kickball!
Our kickball team won and Cavin, Ragnar, Ella, and I all scored. We had a great time, and I was super impressed with Ella and Cavin's effort!
Easter morning the kids came down to search for their Easter baskets and look for more eggs!
This being the third Easter egg hunt, Deacon was getting the hang of it!
Ella was excited about her basket!
Deacon got his beloved ball that hes been eyeing at the store!
Channing only cared about her lip gloss! Haha such a girlie girl!
And Cavin was content as always.
We spent the morning with my brother, Chris, attending his ward. He was called into the Inverness Ward bishopric and received the High Priesthood, so we were there with my parents for his setting apart. 
Channing's dress was adorable! She loved it!
All the cute cousins together again! They looked dashing in all of their Easter apparel! I am grateful we live close to my brother and we got to spend Easter with him. I do love Easter. I know that my Savior lives and that he rose again. I am so grateful for the sacrifice that he made for me. I am grateful for the knowledge that I will be with Him again and that because of Him I can be with my family forever. Such a wonderful blessing!
