Easter in Utah

We had so much fun in Utah. I was worried I wouldn't want to go home (or move to my new home that is.) My mom helped me with everything and it was so nice to have company. My mom pointed out we had been together everyday for almost a month. (AND I didn't even get sick of her company)
It was so easy to die eggs at my mom's house because there were 3 adults to my 3 kids.
Jansen, Reesa and cousin Gage
Saige was the BEST helper in playing with my kids, they loved her!
Little Mitchell was always getting much needed attention!
My mom and dad.
Jordan spent time with me showing me how to work my camera in modes besides automatic...
Here I'm learning to capture movement in a picture, it made for lots of blurry shots, but so cool.

Reesa was a little punk would of course would never smile
Look at all these cousins!!!
(Beckham, Gage, Jansen, Caprice, Mitchell, Saige, Zoey, Remy, Reesa, Jude, Zaylee, Cianna)
Saige was so good to play with Jansen, she thought the trouble he got in was hilarious and was always laughing and telling us a good story about what he was doing next!
Reesa would not leave Remy alone and had to be by her ALL THE TIME!and yes we did have snow for the Easter Egg hunt!Jake was invited to eat at the kid's table, and did well with supervision...After looking through almost 200 photos, I realized I didn't get family photos of my siblings. But they did all come to see us... Here's the closest one with Nathan, Kassie and baby Jude
It was so nice to have Jake FINALLY get to Utah! It had been almost 2 years since his last visit!
P.S. We did some really fun other things too that I didn't get photos of!!! (It's just too hard to have kids AND bring a camera!) like dinner in Provo with Alex, Shauna, and Lucy. They even let us give Jansen a much needed hair cut, thank you! and a fun visit to see prego Annie and family. Wish I could have seen all my Utah friends, but it was just SO HARD without a husband, and 2 hours of sleep each night. I knew I was lucky just to make it...


  1. It looks like SUCH fun Easter for the kidlets! You got some great photos. LOVE the one of all the little cousins! :) So cute.
