Easter was our first holiday in Utah. We had lots of fun but it just wasn't the same not being with my family. But we made the best of it and I was grateful that my kids behaved long enough to snap a few pictures.
The kids didn't have new Easter outfits but I thought they were pretty darn cute anyway and the flowers blooming along with beautiful weather made it all pretty great.
The day before we had our big Egg hunt with the Brown side of the family but my mom had brought up eggs and baskets for my kids so we could still have our own egg hunt like they were having in Henderson. My mom always does the same color or pattern per kid and it makes it super easy for them to find just theirs.
She also likes to surprise the kids with money inside a couple eggs. I kind of love his face in this shot.
We also decided to hide them like grandpa Day would have hid them. Every year someone has had an egg in the grill so I did that too. Stryder knew exactly where to look when I told him to think about where grandpa would have hid it.
And to end the night we facetimed with the family, mostly my mom and dad. It was my favorite part of the day. Celebrating Easter my have felt a little different but the meaning behind it was still as important as ever. We watched a few videos the next night for FHE about the Savior and I loved hearing my kids express how much Jesus means to them and how grateful we all are for His sacrifice and Resurrection.
