Spring! Finally Spring has sprung, and I really couldn’t be more excited about it! Idaho has this way of making you wait for spring so long that you are about ready to pack up and move, and then it comes and you think “why would I ever leave this place?”.
I was oh so thankful that Spring showed up in time for Easter, it made the whole holiday so much more special for me, and much more exciting because we were able to do so much OUTSIDE.
We started our weekend by doing an Easter Egg hunt for the kiddos with our friends the Richardsons and Nickles. I really didn’t think that Camberlyn was old enough to understand how to hunt for eggs, but boy was I wrong! I showed her an egg and put in her basket and she just took off all over the yard putting eggs in as fast as she could.
After our morning egg hunt, we all headed down to the park for a picnic, the kids hardly ate anything because they were having such a good time running around in the beautiful sunshine.
After a refreshing nap for Cam, we headed for the mountains for a little afternoon hike. The weather was just right and it felt wonderful to fill our lungs with fresh spring air. Kia and Cam thoroughly enjoyed playing in the dirt after we were done 🙂
Compared to Saturday, Sunday was really chill. We enjoyed the morning by showing Camberlyn what the Easter Bunny had brought for her and watching as she found all the eggs he had hidden for her. It was so fun, as Cam grows I am so amazed to see how much she can do and how incredibly funny she is! We laughed so hard was we watched her dragging her little basket around the house, with her bed head hair and pink PJ’s, so sweet.
We had a wonderful Church service and truly felt the joy of Easter, the knowledge that Christ is risen, the atonement is fulfilled and death is concurred. What a Joyful time!
