I love Easter...but I hated going to the store to see all of the huge Easter baskets with all of the toys and presents inside them. So like mankind to make Easter about ourselvs. Not to say I don't give my kids Easter baskets...but simple is better to me and I want to teach them more about the meaning and not just the candy. That's the way my mom did it and I hope I can do the same.
We had a great Easter and I hope my kids are starting to learn more as they get a little bit older. We talked a lot about the resurrection and Jesus' sacrifice for us. We watched a movie about Jesus' life and I think it helped make sense to them...a little bit :) Emily and I came up with a silly scavenger hunt for them to do Sunday morning to find their baskets. Things like "the women were going to put spices on Jesus' body, go to where mom keeps her spices" hahaha we are such dorks but I hope they are learning something.
We had a fun weekend and went on a picnic with my family, colored eggs & had a fun Easter egg hunt with the Dukes. Wyatt wore his spiderman costume to the egg hunt...gotta love that.

Bike Rodeo

I let Connor ride his bike to school for the bike rodeo and you would have thought he was going to Disneyland. Sometimes it's the simple things in life that makes kids super happy. I followed him in the car really slow to school. I knew I was super dorky and I didn't even care. He was soooo cute.

I snuck away from work for a few min to watch the bike rodeo and even got to ride a little bit myself. Poor Connor :)

P.S. That was such a windy day!!!!!!!!!!!

For FHE the other night we played a matching card game that had church terms...

One of the questions I asked Connor, "Early church members who came across the plains in covered wagons..."

Connor, "Leprechauns!!"
