Easter Weekend

Our Easter weekend started out with an early morning hike in Boulder City. The boys were so excited to go walking through all the rocks and going through six tunnels. It was a hike on flat ground, however, so there wasn't much variation for the kids to get excited about. As a result, our first 15 minutes of the hike were enjoyable and without complaint. The last 2 hours, on the other hand were not so fun. I had to resort to bribery of stars on their chart to get the complaining to stop. Thankfully, it did. Jason & I appreciated the great views of Lake Mead more than the boys did.

That afternoon we drove to Apple Valley to spend the weekend with my family. Laura was already at mom's with her triplets. Whenever Laura does something, she does it big, so she had over 100 Easter eggs that I helped her fill that night, some were plastic filled with money & candy, and the others were real. Then Jason & Steve had the task of hiding them all over the inside and outside of the house. The kids had a blast finding all their eggs.

Apparently, they didn't find them all, because this week Lucy found real eggs under the couch. Thank goodness they hadn't started rotting yet or Julie would've come home to a sweet smelling house.



The rest of the weekend the cousins had fun playing with each other.



Here is Luke with his sweet grandma. And Luke again snuggling with his cousins BJ & Cassidy.

The highlight of our trip was on our way to Apple Valley, I heard Luke saying "Hair, Hair, Mommy. Hair." So I turned around and saw a sucker I had given to him earlier had gotten stuck in his curly locks. He refused to let me touch his head when we were in the car, so I had to wait until we got to grandma's house and then cut it out. He has since this sticky event, received a haircut, but is still adorable.

Glad to see your back. What a fun hike. You guys are brave to go for so long. I don't think our girls would have made it. The weather looks so nice. That is funny about the sucker in Luke's hair. I would die if I had to cut something how of Anna's curly hair. Glad you guys are doing well and I look forward to more updates :)
