We had a great spring break, and I have to say I'm sad to send my kids back to school. This week has made me excited to have them home for summer break. Over the course of the week, we went to the park, visited a little frozen yogurt place where you get to dish your own yogurt & toppings, went to Carls Jr. with the cousins, decorated Easter eggs, and went swimming at the rec. center.
On Saturday morning the girls discovered that the Easter bunny had filled their baskets during the night, and they enjoyed a breakfast of chocolate bunnies and breakfast quesadillas. For the quesadillas, I cut corn tortillas into egg shapes, and mixed food coloring with egg whites to make "paint" then let the girls decorate two "eggs" before cooking them up. I filled the quesadillas with ham, cheese and scrambled eggs.
Here is a picture of the girls' creations after they were cooked:
Then, we had an Easter egg hunt with over 100 plastic eggs. They were filled with little Easter erasers, jelly-beans, and robin's eggs.
The plastic eggs were filled with spring-time erasers, flying bunnies, and a few jelly beans/robin's eggs. When the girls opened them, they were most excited about the non-edible goodies, and I was glad that there wasn't too much candy this year.
Sunday I gave the girls cereal straws & milk for breakfast which is a real treat for them, but I found them at NPS, so I only had to pay a quarter for them. I then got the girls ready for 9:00 church, which took most of the morning, but they looked pretty cute :)
After church Greg showed the girls the new clip from Elder Holland's talk. If anyone hasn't seen it, here it is:
Then we went to my parents' house for a yummy dinner & to Greg's parents' house to wish his mom a happy birthday. All in all, it was a great week.
