Easter

What a great Easter weekend we had. Every year it gets better, it is so much fun to see how much Jackson loves it more and more. On Easter Sunday my nieces and nephew were giving a lesson about the Savior when they asked why we celebrate Easter and my sweet nephew Cooper who is 5 shouted with such excitement because "Jesus Lives". How sweet to see how children love the Savior.I hope we can all have that much joy and enthusiasm when we talk about the Ressurection. It was a great day. Jackson got his first bike from the Easter Bunny. He is a little behind most kids have been riding bikes for a while some without training wheels. So his dad thought it was time he started. He got off to a rough start, which was frustrating Stephen a bit, but he is steadily improving. At the easter egg hunt at the Cummards he was a little slow in getting the eggs he kind of just waited for the other kids to put the eggs in his basket. He is not used to having to fight to get the eggs being the only child at our egg hunt. He of course wound up crying, what is a holiday without a tantrum or two. Then all the cousins got to take turns hiding eggs and when it was the posse's turn ( all the 3 year old cousins) they did a bang up job. Around one of the trees there was a ring of eggs, it was quite amusing. All in all it was a wonderful day spent with family. Hope you all had a great Easter as well.

Yes. What would a holiday be without a tantrum or two. We had our share yesterday. Glad you guys had fun. I think Hundsons basket is bigger than him!

What a good post! I can not view the slide, but I do love the group picture, where only like 3 kids are looking. At least the cutest kid there is looking! (The one in the pink polka dot dress) She is so cute. Who does she belong to?
Thanks for such a good post. Your nephew's comment was so cute.
