Easter Eve

We had an amazing day today! It was so fun being together as a family all day long and doing so many fun activities together. We woke up and had breakfast and then headed over to the Springville City "Easter egg hunt". They basically throw candy (with no eggs) all over the high school football field and then let the kids go pick it all up. It's kind of silly but the kids love it and I enjoy seeing all of the fun folks who live in our town.

Next we headed to Home Depot, where the first Saturday of each month they have a free project for kids to do. Cory and Kevin built and painted a bird feeder for our window. It was a lot of fun and did I!

So Proud!

We then headed over to Sams Club to enjoy all of the Saturday samples and buy a recliner. I'm so excited to have a recliner for this baby. With Cory we didn't have anything that rocked or reclined, so I spent endless hours holding him upright in our old faithful green chair. I can't wait to be able to rock this baby and on those endless nights actually be able to recline and sleep. 

Kevin brought it in the house and put it together and I jumped in it to see how I liked it. Well.... 2 hours later Kevin came and woke me up because it was time for our extended family festivities. I guess I approve of the chair. ; ) 

Kevin's siblings and their kiddos met us up at Mom and Dad Bird's for dinner and an Easter egg hunt. The kids had so much fun and Cory ate more candy and junk than he ever has before. It was such a fun and busy day that by 7pm Cory was begging me to let him go to bed.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow and an opportunity to really think about my Savior and the significance of his life and atonement. I know he lives and that because of him I can be saved. I know that through Him I can overcome my weaknesses and that my heart can be comforted when the challenges of life seem too hard to bare.
