We had a busy and fun weekend. It started off Friday night. Nate wanted me to come watch his regional championship basketball game so at the last minute I found a sitter and we made a night of it by going to dinner beforehand then meeting up with 2 other couples whose husbands play on the team and heading up to Lynnwood for the game. They won in overtime!!! We went for dessert after the game to celebrate and by the time we got home it was a few minutes before midnight...yikes!!
The next morning was our annual Easter egg hunt. We also decided to start doing small Easter baskets on Saturday so that Sunday can be dedicated to focusing on the Savior and the miracle of the Atonement and Resurrection.
The egg hunt was so fun and the weather finally cooperated this year and turned out sunny and 65 (which is practically perfect for us North-westerners!) The kids had a great time playing and when it came time to distract them so we could hide the eggs the Easter bunny (aka Nate) happened to show up and was in the mood to play duck duck goose! The kids loved it!!!
Saturday night was the adult session of Stake Conference and we were lucky enough to have our same favorite sitter again :) The talks were are all very inspiring and I was so glad we'd made the time to go. After the meeting we joined up with some friends for a late dinner and got home around 11.
Today was Stake Conference, which means a LONG 2 hour session trying to keep our boys quiet so the rest of the congregation could enjoy the speakers ;) Actually, the boys did quite well and I didn't have to take Jack to the kid's room until the last 15 minutes.
This evening we had a really yummy dinner with two other families and had a really fun time visiting and letting the kids go crazy in the bounce house! I attempted decorating a carrot cake for the first time and it turned out to be a lot easier than I initially thought! I tried a new recipe from thegirlwhoateeverything. It had pineapple in it which made it really moist and flavorful. Ethan helped me tie name tags around the peeps to use as place cards :)
I hope you all enjoyed your weekends and had some time to reflect on the Savior, who has done so much for us.
