Spring Break, Easter, and fun stuff

Spring break at our house has been pretty mundane with a few exceptions, and they are:
The boys had a fantastic time playing in our neighbor's mud! After a Spring rain shower there was plenty of mud for them to splash with and make a lot of dirty clothes and faces. It was fun while it lasted, until mom came along and made them wash off the neighbor's house where they had splattered mud all over.

This is Haley in her Easter crown, each of the kids had one. They did not see much wear but they were fun to paint and they looked so cute in them.

Pa and Betty's ward had a carinval and the boys loved it. They each got their face painted; Caleb and tiger, Peter a spider, and William Spiderman. They had other fun games and contests. All the kids were entered in a rootbeer chugging contest and when they gave Peter the root beer he told them no because "it is bad for my body." Such a cool kid.

Today was the Gray Easter egg hunt and it was such fun! We all gathered at my house (Diedre and Rob's) and ate a yummy breakfast then the kids were so excited to get out there to clean up the eggs. They all did so good at gathering up the eggs. We only hid one Golden Egg this year so there was more of a challenge to find it. Caleb was the lucky kid this year and he really cleaned up! Steve was awesome enough to help William gather eggs during the hunt and then he helped Willy count all the loot. Then Steve humored all the boys by willingly walking into their traps and playing with them outside. We have an awesome family.

My boys also took some time today to work in the garage making another garden box for us/me. Yeah! It will be so fun to have more space to plant. Caleb loves to get a hammer, some nails and wood and just hammer stuff together. Tonight he made himself a version of R2D2. I have an awesome husband, and kids!

Finally, Diedre's most exciting moment of the weekend was when Rob took me tonight and bought us two wonderful fruit trees for our yard. Look at those beauties! I so hope they do good, grow well and produce such yummy fruit. We are so excited for them, especially me. Did I mention that Rob is awesome! After a long day he was out there digging a hole for the peach tree (the other is a Red Delicious Apple), chopping with an ax, and being all tough. He is the best! And I have two new fruit trees, Yeah!
