Easter and More!!

We have had a lot of fun the last few weeks as we have had Easter and Spring Break, where we don't have anyone in the public school, but my parent's were gone with my brother and his family to DisneyLand and we spent it at home with each other. Mat and I were able to go to a Bees game. It was just going to be the two of us with Hayden, but the game was cancelled because of a former player that had been killed in LA. So we decided to go walk around Temple Square and take pictures and enjoy the atmosphere without two other screaming kids. We ended up taking the boys that next Saturday where it rained half way through the game so we left. It was ok because we didn't pay for the tickets, Mat got them through work. Which was sweet of them and the reason we were able to take the boys on Saturday with us is when we exchanged the tickets we got them 2 for 1. Cool huh?!?
Easter was fun and adventuresome. Friday my sister came over and we decorated eggs and then hide them out in the yard along with some other eggs that talked about the Resurrection of the Savior. It was really cool. After the boys found the eggs we went inside and read the account of the Resurrection. Afterwards we hid the other eggs again and then played until it was too cold and it was getting dark. The boys had a lot of fun. Then Saturday morning is when we have the kids do the Easter Egg hunt in the house, so that we can savor the special meaning of Easter on Sunday. They had fun. Daxton was going around the front room quickly getting all the candy that he could get, while Corbin was taking his time and couldn't find much because Daxton took most of them. However, being the parents we were able to divide the candy pretty much in half and they didn't know the difference. That afternoon we took the boys to their first big baseball game and they had a lot of fun, especially when Mat bought them popcorn. They got bored around the 5th inning and then it started to down pour so we left and went to Mat's brother Jared's to see their new house. It was a lot of fun, though.
On Easter Sunday we were able to go to my Uncle Tim's house and have more Easter Egg Hunts and have a yummy barbeque. It was a lot of fun to be with family and spend it together.
My mom just celebrated her birthday this last Wednesday and it was fun. My sister Apryl and I took my mom out to lunch to Brick Oven and had a really good time. It was fun to surprise my mom and spend it that way with her. I hope she knows how much she is appreciated and how much we really enjoy having her apart of family.
