|Reed is eligible, through work, to win trips twice a year. He qualified to win a trip about 6 months ago, that we would be leaving on right about now, but we weren't able to take it because of having a new baby. But he qualified again and so in September we are off to beautiful Hawaii! Ella will be weaned by then and Reed's wonderful sister has offered to take the kids for us while we go. They live up in Ohio and have 3 kids pretty much the exact ages of our kids. So, while it will be crazy for Carolyn, the kids will have a great time. Reed and I are very excited! Thanks for all of you hard work honey! I reap the benefits in so many ways. Love You!|

Grammy hid some Easter eggs for the boys and after church on Sunday Kason had fun finding them all over the house. He really loved all the egg hunting! He also participated in a great easter egg hunt the primary did for the kids on Saturday.
As I was telling Harley what we were going to do he kept asking if we were going to eat the eggs. I would say, "We are going to color some eggs." Harley would say, "and eat them?" I would say, "You can put stickers on them and dip them in the colors," and Harley would say, "and eat them?" (and so on..) Apparently Harley didn't see the point in decorating your eggs, eggs are for eating. In the end he did enjoy watching the eggs turn color and eventually he did get to them.
Then the big morning came! Ella enjoyed he Easter basket filled with empty plastic eggs and two little stuffed bunnies that her daddy picked out for her (he had a lot of fun this year picking out treats and toys for the kids baskets).
Kason was very please with the magic jelly bean harvest!
One of our neighbors made this cute bunny cake and brought it over for the boys. They were very pleased with it and thought they were so funny when it cam time to eat the bunny, laughing as they ate the bunny's face, ears, tail, ets. What fun!
