Egg Hunt

Today, we had playgroup at our house. Since it is almost Easter, we thought it would be fun to have an Easter egg hunt. Each kid brought a dozen filled eggs...we "hid" (we mostly put them on the ground because of the younger kids) 72 eggs outside for the kids to find, had lunch and let the kids play. It was a fun day for the kids...and moms!

Waiting for the fun to start!

I know it's Spring because...

*My flowers are up and beautiful! I'm patiently waiting for my tulips to bloom...they're my favorite!!

*Yardwork has begun

*Christian's phone has been ringing non-stop...the farmers are starting to get excited with this nice weather!


*We can wear short sleeve shirts (and maybe even shorts by tomorrow) outside and not freeze :)


We are so excited for all the fun things that are happening this week! Tomorrow is a playgroup Easter Egg hunt and two of Christian's brothers and their wives are coming Friday to visit for the weekend!

Well, are you tired of pictures yet? I promise this will be the last of them from our trip. Day three of our stay in Hawaii we spent at the beach again. This time, we found a different beach that was SO much nicer than the first one. The sand was so much finer than the first one we went to. Beach Bums!!

The seashell Carson found while walking down the beach. We were surprized to learn that there was still a little creature living in it so he returned it to the ocean so it could live with it's family.

Hupuna Beach

A sneeky little Leprachaun found us on St. Patrick's Day...he left a trail of shoes that led to a pot of gold!

Our actual last day to play, we went to the pool again. We stayed at a resort that was part of the Hilton, so we got to go use the pools at one of their other resorts, which happens to be the one we will be going to next year! It was so fun to get a glimpse at where we will be next year and what fun things we get to look forward to! Our highlight of this day was the dolphins. After Carson found out that we were going to Hawaii, he informed me that he was going to ride a dolphin while we were there. We were so lucky to find that at the other resort, they have a dophin training area where you can go and swim with the dolphins. We didn't swim with the dolphins, but they have a restaraunt that is right next to it. So, we enjoyed lunch while we watched the dolphins. Carson was so excited to see and watch them.

All the grandkids!

Watching the dolphins!

These were the random goats that were at different places on the resort. This was right outside our room. We later saw them on the golf course.

Dinner out on the town!

Chilling in the room!

Our last day, we had to check out by noon, so we loaded all our luggage into the cars and drove into the next town, Kona, and shopped the rest of the day. While driving around, we found the Kona, Hawaii Temple and decided to go see it. It's a tiny temple, but was beautiful!

We flew out a little after 9 that night and arrived in LA around 5:30. We made it Denver around 11 and were scheduled to fly home to McCook around 1:30, but our flight was cancelled due to weather...lovely snow...and didn't end up flying out until 5:45. Needless to say, it was a VERY LONG day, but the boys were awesome! We had so much fun and want to thanks Grandma Foulger for taking us! We had a BLAST and miss seeing you guys!
