There was a lot going on this year for Easter. Gramma and Grampa Brown and Uncle Brandon and Aunt Jessie were in town. We celebrated Olive's birthday. Kathy was in the Easter Pageant at the Mesa Temple. And we went to the annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Betty Fairfax School.

Here is Joss with one of the guards from the pageant.

Jackson thought they were pretty cool too.

We were glad we got there to get a picture with Kathy in her costume. She did an amazing job and worked so hard. The kids got so excited trying to find her in the multitude. It was also so fun having Gramma and Grampa Brown.

I went in early to sign the kids up for the hunt. Shawn brought all the kids in himself.

Here is what Jackson got at the Easter Egg Hunt at the school. Can you tell what his favorite color is? He didn't even consider any egg unless it was orange.

Here's their loot:

They got their faces painted at the hunt too.

I think this guy was a little scared of Olive. This was a friendly as she looked the whole time he was painting her face - no wonder he painted the heart so small!

We did dye some eggs. Jackson thought it was pretty fun!

Catch up!

We've had some fun, but you wouldn't know, because we haven't been very good bloggers lately. Here is a hodge-podge of fun and friends and family over the last few months:

This was the first time we went to the splash pad this year. It was nice and warm and the kids had a lot of fun!

Church goes from 11-2, right in the middle of Olive's nap time. When we get home we usually eat. Olive, trying to be efficient, decided to combine her meal with her nap.

We got to have Auntie Kelli visit for a few days. We went to the zoo and played in the pool and hit the town and loved every minute! We can't wait for her to come back!

We got to have some good days with Sweet Esme! We can't wait to have her stay with us this summer!!

We went to the zoo with our good friends the Gardners. I didn't get a picture with everyone, but this was close!
