Easter Tradition bRoKeN

Every Easter weekend for ... years ... we have ventured down to Elsinore to spend time with Joe's family, then headed over to the Christiansen party in Kanosh. With a 2 week old baby and everything we had gone through with regards to her eating and gaining weight, we just couldn't make the trip. Instead though, we decided to hit up a local FREE egg hunt!

Well that morning didn't start off to a smooth start ... to say the least. I mean, we are still trying to figure out how to be a parent of two with very very little sleep! When it became more than clear that we would not be making the 10 o'clock egg hunt in South Jordan, Joe found a hunt in West Valley at 11:00. PERFECT! We'll go there.

Right before we were headed out the door I asked if Joe knew where we were going. He ran downstairs and came back with a bit of a smirk as he replied "At a Baptist Church".
A slightly different experience than I was expecting -- We did have a chance to win a chocolate covered cross! There was a great turn out, and everyone was very kind ... and Jace had a blast, so I guess that's all that matters! I did, however, feel an urge to go home and find Baptists at the Barbecue! Do I feel a sequel coming? Mormons at the Egg Hunt?
Pretty Elsie at her first Baptist function. hehe.
There were a few flaws in how the event was organized -- but again, Jace had a great time "finding" the eggs (that a man was dropping out of that big garbage sack in the picture above). It actually was quite fun to watch all of the toddlers follow the man with the sack around like little chicks!
(I'm still in shock that I have two kids, and that I can love them BOTH so much!! I am one proud mama!!)

Fun ... MEMORABLE ... afternoon! hehe
