Easter Egg Hunt

Every year I have put together an easter egg hunt for the kids. This year we decided to go the egg hunt in Rexburg. I thought that it would be so much fun for the kids. I think that it turned out more tramatic than fun. Macy was upset and crying when we were done because she only had 2 eggs. The kids were mean and pushed and she didn't like any of it. Austin did better. He went with the flow and ended up with 7 eggs (which he shared some of with his sister). And then there is Carter who could care less about gathering eggs. He got one egg because his mom made him get it.
After our tragedy I thought that it might be a good idea to do something fun to erase the easter egg hunt from their minds. We packed a lunch and headed to Hamer where Jase is planting grain. We had a tailgate picnic. Lots more fun than the egg hunt. The kids had a blast and it was so warm outside. I got a sunburn in the hour we were outside. Pretty unusual for an Easter weekend in Idaho to have sun but we were soaking it all in.

Mary had a little lamb

Grandpa Bird decided that the kids needed some bum lambs to take care of. He kept them for the first few weeks to get them going and then brought them to our house. I had the most excited kids. They spent the entire day outside with their lambs. They absolutely love feeding them. Carter would wait up in his bed until he would hear me come out at 10pm to go feed and would go with me. I will admit they have been kind of fun to have around.
