Easter Pics - Better late than never - Right?

The day before Easter we went to the Bell Family Farm for a big picnic and party. The Bell's are a family in the 2nd ward who have lots of land and lots of fun things to do at their house. There were all sorts of stations revolving around Easter theme, a barrel train ride, and a huge egg hunt. We had a great time and hope we'll be invited back next year. (they also do a pumpkin patch in October for the public - It's awesome!) That night we dyed eggs and watched a movie. On Sunday the Easter bunny had hidden all of the baskets for the kids to find, but for some reason I hadn't taken any pictures of that.

Baptism Pictures

I got a new camera battery today, so here are some pictures of Macey's baptism!

Happy Birthday to Macey and Annie

I'm a little late in this post, but we've been a little busy, plus my computer is very slow! Macey and Annie both had their best friend come over for their birthday's. Macey and Megan made a birthday cake, rented and watched a movie, and did crafts. Annie and Rylee played and ate cupcakes. The evening of Annie's birthday we went to Jason's Deli for dinner and then back home for cake and presents. Grandma and Grandpa came over, plus Bryan and Erica & Family, and Stacy and Don & family. It was a big party!
My parents have been here visiting this past week. They came for Macey's baptism which was on April 4th. I have some pictures, but my camera battery just died, so we will see. Her baptism went really well with her aunts, uncle, and cousins from Dallas, both sets of Grandparents, plus her favorite teacher from last year. When I was helping her get dressed after the baptism she looked at me and said "Well, the hard part is over" I think she was a bit worried about being dunked in the water. It seems crazy to have two kids who have been baptized. It is fun to watch them grow and experience new things, I just wish I didn't have to get older along with them. We had a great visit with my parents with lots of shopping, and card playing. I am very grateful that they made the trip for such a special occasion.
