Pre-Easter Fun


So, Friday...here in Salt Lake, I woke up to an inch and a half of snow on the ground, yuck!  I was so irritated as I looked out the window and saw my freshly spouting flower seeds covered in snow.  BUT....the very next day, all was sunny and well, and we took the kids to an Easter egg hunt in the park.  It was *packed*!  Regardless, Marin was able to snatch up some eggs, and Owen, well, he shared his eggs with big sister.
 Can you see the crazy masses of people?!
 Hey, little sleepy boy!  He was missing his morning nap.  I keep thinking he's getting too big for morning naps, but every time he misses one, the poor fella looks like he's been hit by a bus!
 Here's my basket!
 Let's get that pesky egg out of there....
 I love her little hat.
 And, here's the eggs I swiped from my little brother's basket.
 She had one run through the bouncy house before the line reached Disney-Land length.
 And later that afternoon, Grandad and Sallie came with a big red present!  A wagon!!!  This wagon is just amazing, it comes with a tiny trunk to store stuff, cup-holders, AND a sun cover...thank you Duane and Sallie!
 We all went (with the little red wagon) to This Is The Place Monument and park, where they have a bunch of animals to interact with...and since it's springtime, there were plenty of baby animals to boot, so cute!
 Marin was obsessed with the baby ducks.  She tells me almost everyday that she is going to get a baby duck and name it Daisy (haha, yeah), and that she will feed it and take it outside to go potty in the grass and take it for walks and in the bathtub with her.  I don't know where she got this notion, but it's pretty cute.

 Oh my goodness, these baby bunnies were about the *cutest* things I have seen, and they were ridiculously SOFT!  They were so snuggly and sweet, and it was adorable to see these four baby bunnies in their pen with their mama bunny, it reminded me of the book, The Runaway Bunny.
 Snuggling the baby bunny.
 And, back to the ducks.
 Owen was not as impressed with the animals.
 Cute boy, he likes the wagon, too.
 This picture is squished for some reason, but here's Marin having a pony ride!
 Awwww, Grandad and Owen.
 Marin and mama being crazy.
 Sweet girl
 Little boy.
 Marin got a little chilly on the train ride, so daddy wrapped her in his sweatshirt.
 Ok, this cabin...so random, I know.  This cabin is 8 feet by 8 feet, and our train tour-guide informed us that a man and his wife raised 7 of their 13 children in this (replica) cabin.  Really?!  How is that even possible?!  Where does everyone sleep and what do you do in the wintertime when there is 3 feet of snow outside?  Twiddle your thumbs until spring?  I just thought it was crazy and funny.
We had a super fun Saturday and are so grateful to have family near.  Easter Day to follow!
