Lots of Easter Festivities

Shaun's work put on an Easter Carnival this year! The kids had a ton of fun visiting Daddy at work and Maisey liked meeting all of Daddy's friends.

On Saturday, we braved the rain and headed to the Easter Egg Hunt at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival. Lucky for us there were only like 20 other kids there. Maisey had all the time in the world to fill her basket up with eggs. She was even putting some in her pockets and when we walked away, there were still tons of eggs left on the grass. It was so nice to not have to rush to get eggs, especially at her age.

There was only one other kid in the 0-2 yr. old group. She even went into the older kids sections because there was no one there!

Look at that full basket! She walked away with 91 eggs!!! Woot Woot! Daddy was proud!

That night the kids (actually just Maisey--Gage had no idea what was going on!) were so excited to put out their Easter baskets.

Gage checkin out his loot!
Maisey is doing her Easter egg hunt! Check out her bed head!

She organized all of her goodies from inside her eggs! She was so excited to get money!

Grandma and Papa Grimmett got her a Dora watercolor painting set! She painted all morning while we watched conference.

Gage ate a nutritious breakfast of Peeps and fruit leathers! YUM!!!

We had a delicious Easter dinner at Grammy's house then headed to visit Papa, and continue the tradition of taking him a pin wheel each April.
We are so thankful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ and that we have the knowledge that we will see Papa and all our other loved ones again someday! Looking forward to that peaceful day where everything physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually will be whole!
Hope you all had a nice Easter!
