3 Kids and 5 Easter Egg Hunts

We had a busy Easter weekend this year and now we have way too much candy at our house. From the first Easter Egg Hunt at Grandma Mitchell's, #2 at Aunt Jan's, #3 at Grandpa Bret and Grandma Julia's, #4 from the actual Easter Bunny and #5 at Pappa Bill and Grammy Shar's, we made the rounds and the kids looked high and low to find all the hidden treasures.
Grant loved to get the eggs hidden up high. He would spot them and ask to go up, then laugh right out loud when he had snatched them from their hiding spots.

We're so lucky to have 2/3 of the Grandparents close by that we can visit during the holidays. Sometimes it's a little overwhelming making sure everyone gets to see the kids, but really family is what it is all about. I'm so grateful that we are able to celebrate Easter with our kids, that they can learn about the Savior's resurrection and how important it is in their own lives. I'm grateful that if we live the way we've been taught that we can be a family forever. I love my kids and husband so much and am striving daily to reach my goal.
