We spent our Easter in Provo/Orem with Kyle's siblings. We started our morning with the girls coming down from their bedrooms to find a new Easter dress and a new book. Hailey was so excited that the Easter Bunny had come and left her and Keira matching dresses.
After a very non-exciting bowl-of-cereal breakfast, we journeyed down to Provo. We parked and walked onto campus at BYU and ate a quick picnic lunch/snack. We met up with Kyle's sister Brittany and went to her YSA ward for church. It sure does make any small child or baby noises stand out when yours are the only ones. :)
After sacrament meeting we went over Kyle's brother Kris' house for another lunch, an Easter egg hunt, and an Easter elk roast dinner with all of Kyle's siblings. Kyle's brother-in-law Cody is big into hunting and scored an elk this past fall. He treated us to our (well, mine and the girls') first taste of elk.
Kris and Emmie put on a good Easter egg hunt. My two girls came home loaded with eggs and candy. Hailey was the oldest child (by a few years) and was pretty quick to rake in her loot. We had to slow her down so the smaller kids could collect their share of the eggs.
Keira on the other hand was an egg hunting novice. It took quite a bit of guidance to help her hunt.
Although once she had the egg in her hand she was quick to pop it open and shove in as many jelly beans as she could before I shut it back up.
We had a lot of fun spending time with family and filling our bellies with jelly beans. Of course we are grateful for Easter not just because of the sugar rush, but mostly because of the sacrifice of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and the saving grace of the atonement. Because I know the people in this house certainly are not perfect- but we are so grateful that Christ paved the way for us to repent and become better people each and every day. :)
