Easter Sunday was another fun day. The boys woke up really early to see if the Easter Bunny had come. In fact, Zach snuck downstairs before we even woke up and checked out his loot. He was upstairs telling Brady what the Easter Bunny had brought them when we woke up. I guess I needed to be a little more clear about the rules!
We did baskets and had breakfast and headed off to church. We had such a nice Sacrament meeting with great music. Then after church we all took naps which is always my favorite part of having early church again this year.
We headed over to our friends' house that evening for dinner. It was fun because we decided to forgo tradition and we had a bbq'd tri tip with twice baked potatoes, salad and rolls. I'm not the biggest ham fan so it was nice. Plus the kids all played really nice so we actually got to sit and talk.
We did a fun new thing after dinner which was Easter egg bowling. You take the hard boiled eggs and roll them towards each other on the floor. The one that doesn't crack is the winner. Of the kids Brady won and of the adults Dad won. It was a fun new Easter tradition. We are blessed to have friends since we don't have any family around. I feel lucky that we don't have to be alone on the holidays and that there always seems to be someone to share the day with.

|wasting no time finding candy-- the Easter bunny was smart and gave each kid only ONE egg with candy|
