Easter 2015

Between neighborhood and city egg hunts, dyeing eggs, a ward Passover dinner, general conference, and of course lots of candy, it was a great Easter for our family this year. 

This year we bought an Avengers egg dye kit. The boys loved it! 

We went to a few egg hunts this year. The first was a neighborhood one-- complete with a bounce house, cotton candy and popcorn, and tons of candy. I wasn't going to have Davis participate, but when we saw there was a section for 0-2 year olds, we let him join in and use Sean's hat for his basket :)

It is also a tradition for our family to go to the Pleasant Grove egg hunt every year. The boys always really enjoy it and there are plenty of eggs to go around. This was Davis's first year and he was SO cute.

He caught on rather quickly and started filling up his bucket.

He clapped for himself after adding each egg.

Sorting through their spoils with some friends after the hunt. 

Sean and I were able to participate in our first ever Passover dinner this year, which was put on by our ward. It was a really cool experience, and we both enjoyed it a lot. At the end of the meal, Sean (who was the leader of our table) had to barter for the Afikomen (the concealed matzah from the dinner). His price to redeem it was to eat a spoonful of the bitter herbs-- which in this case happened to be the hottest horseradish I have EVER tasted. He was a champ.

Easter morning, the boys were excited about their baskets and searching the house for eggs. A few of the eggs had $1 bills in them this year, which they loved. Each boy got a new Hot Wheel, which is also always a favorite. 

We were lucky enough to have Sean's parents join us that afternoon and stay for a couple of days. We had a big Easter dinner together, and it was nice to have family to enjoy the rest of the day with.

I made a gluten free carrot cake for dessert that I am pretty proud of! It was so good!

All of the fun and food aside, I'm grateful for my testimony of a living, resurrected Savior, who sacrificed Himself for all. I love this time of year!
