April was a fun month. We have really been trying to soak up all the amazing weather and play outside a lot.
This picture was the day I taught them to slow dance together. They both liked it a lot! Baiden didn't last long but he now knows how to do it and they do every once in a while, its too cute!
For Easter I wanted to take Kinzi to the Easter Pageant put on by members of the LDS church. It happens every year at the Mesa Temple grounds. My mom used to take us a lot growing up. And my sister and her 4 kids all participated this year too. Kinzi was old enough to understand it so I planned the whole night for the two of us. She picked grilled cheese for dinner with fries. Then I picked up doughnuts for dessert. We arrived early so we could lay blankets out and have good seats on the ground. We ate our dinner and dessert then played board games and colored while we waited for it to start. Such a fun opportunity to have with her. She was able to see the life of Christ acted out in front of her eyes. She recognized that he was resurrected and came back to life after he died. She was able to comprehend what Easter is really about and why we celebrate it.
We actually got to go to the Pageant again a couple nights later with most of my family. Right after it was over we drove straight on through to Pima to spend the Easter Holiday with Grandma and Grandpa Weech. We are averaging once a month in Pima it seems but we love it there. We get to visit family and our BFFS Don and Lauren.
Friday night we had a little cookout in the backyard. With yummy steak, garlic bread and even made smores in the fire pit. The kids loved that.
We spent Saturday lunch with the Thompson Crew. We were going to have a Easter Egg hunt after lunch but it had rained and was super dirty and muddy. Not to mention our kids were very tired and ready for naps. So we did a little hunt with them after their naps before the sun went down that Saturday.
The next morning was Easter. I quickly made little arrow signs pointing to where the Easter Bunny had left their presents. Kinzi though that was fun.
We then got dressed in our Easter clothes that took me all month to find. And I was determined to get a good family picture. Baiden just wasn't having it.
What a blessed Easter we had. We had a hunt, a yummy ham and potato dinner and learned more about the Savior. Not only did He die for our sake and provided the atonement, but we know that He lives. I loved getting to teach that to Kinzi who understood it and can see her testimony and how its starting to grow.
