We had such a fun Easter in LaVerkin with family. We always have such fun holidays! We started Saturday by attending the LaVerkin city Easter egg hunt. **warning: this post will have an overload of pictures so just be prepared to sit back & enjoy!**

Zaylee would reach to pick up one piece of candy,

And then pick up her basket and move on to find one more piece of candy.

Therefore, we didn't end up with a lot of candy but even with that, Daddy still tried to raid!!

After the hunt, we went in search of the Easter bunny and some balloons. At first Zaylee was so excited to go see the Easter bunny but when she actually got up to him and he turned to her she freaked out a bit. This was the only picture we were able to get:

She loved the balloons though!

After the hunt we went and hung out at Levi & Saddie's house. Zaylee loved playing with Tomas and I loved holding baby Hazel! We didn't get any pictures but I should've as Zaylee and Tomas played in the fenced in backyard! (oh how I wish I had one of those!!) (Again, sorry Saddie about Zaylee taking your clean clothes out onto the wet back lawn--twice!!)

Then after a short stint at Grandma Gubler's (where she managed to only break one thing in an hour and a half) we moved on to Grandma and Grandpa Heatons for a FANTASTIC lunch and headed out for Easter Egg Hunt the 2nd.

All the kids heading out to hunt:

Enjoying the spoils!

Afterwards we headed back to Grandma Gubler's for a much needed nap in preparation for Easter Egg Hunt the 3rd & 4th. Of these, unfortunately didn't get any photos. The 3rd was for the kids and the 4th was for us adults. Grandma Gubler, you are amazing! It was a ton of fun! Afterwards it was time for making rice krispy easter eggs.

On Sunday, we headed out to church (where Zaylee wanted us to stay for all three hours so she could go to nursery--what a righteous little girl!) =) and then headed off to St. George to visit Grandma Barlow and Aunt Steph and family. We had fun scrounging empty cupboards to see if we could make a dinner out of what we had and then by playing Settlers of Catan with Steph and Ryan. Thanks for playing guys!

Monday morning before heading home, we went on a scavenger hunt to find Great-Grandma Gubler so we could visit her (no one told us she moved!!). Zaylee at first was very shy but as soon as she found the swing in the front yard it was a battle getting her to leave.

And that about sums it up! What a fun weekend! Thanks everyone! We love you!!

What the heck is Settlers of Catan? You are the third person who has mentioned it in the last two days! Must investigate.

We're very glad you came over to visit! Levi is enjoying the online Catan you guys showed us. Zaylee is welcome to drag clean clothes around the backyard as often as she wishes if that means she's entertaining Tomas. :o) What a cute, adventurous, zany little sweetheart you have. So, I'm thinking we'll need to get her some dress-ups for her birthday - funny girl!

Sounds like you guys had a very busy, fun Easter! Zaylee is so cute. We need to do a play date soon. Our floors are almost done so you guys can come and play! Zeke has a little something for Zaylee for Easter so hopefully we will be able to drop it off within the next couple of days. I will call first before I come.

Overload of pictures is the best! Happy Easter!
