We had a great day with the kids on Easter over at Jessica and Shane’s house. Forrest and Somer went to Brighton snowboarding in the morning as it was the last day the slopes were going to be open. They met us later in the day for a dinner prepared by Jessica and Barb topped off by raspberry dessert!
We had an Easter egg hunt in the backyard where Dylan and Lily found plastic candy filled eggs and a couple of toys. Lily was running around finding eggs but once she discovered there was candy in them she would stop to eat the contents before looking for another. Dylan on the other hand was interested in quantity. I was impressed however when he stopped what he was doing and got Lily back on track by helping her fill her basket.
After dinner we got together for our very first family picture. Trying to get a 4 and 2 year old to stand for pictures is like trying to herd cats. It makes me wonder how my mom handled 7 children! Dylan and Lily should be shifted a little to the left in front of their respective parents but with only a 10 second delay on the camera timer we were not going to mess with fate. After pictures we said our goodbyes, we should be back in 6 months. It was a good visit here in and we will miss seeing everyone but it is time to move on. Speaking of missing people, this is the first Easter in quite some time that we did not have Easter with some of my brothers and sisters, we missed them as well.
Today we start our journey to South Dakota to meet some friends for a bow hunt for the wiley South Dakota turkey. We will likely spend the night in Casper, stop in Custer for a few days before meeting our group in Wood, SD on Saturday.
