 Brad was very excited to decorate eggs for Easter.  Before we put the kids to bed last night, we decided to give it a whirl. 

They both wanted to start eating the eggs right away.

 We went to the temple yesterday.  After I completed a session, we went to eat at A&W.  Stella and Brad were happy to be eating.  After we ate, Phillip went through the temple with his cousin, Thomas, who was receiving his endowments.  
 Brad wore his "glasses" the whole time we were down there.  We got some strange looks. 
 We stayed the night at a hotel.  Phillip was adamant about swimming.  I think the kids had a fun time.  The water was really warm. 

 Brad is proud of his herbs.  They are really doing well. 
Here Brad is showing off the roots that have started to sprout on our pineapple.

 We went skeet shooting this afternoon.  We all shot pretty decently, so that was good. 

 Here the kiddos are munching on some trail mix.  Gotta love it. 

 Here is Mattie with her boyfriend.  He's a pretty good shot himself, so we might want to keep him around. 
 We threw my mom a surprise 50th birthday party.  It was pretty darn stressful to get everything together without her knowing about it, but she was surprised, so I think it was a success. 
 Here Brad is waiting for Grandma to show up.  He looks so tired because he has been playing hard this week. 
Some of the cousins waiting for Mom. 

 We all put together 50 favorite memories of my mom.  Ten each per girl. 

 Just us. 
 The kids had a blast with the balloons.  Sadly, most of them had escaped within minutes. 

Stella is a little snuggle bug.

 We went on a walk the other day.  Stella didn't want to have anything to do with the sun. 

 We also went to see Uncle Bill's baby goats.  Brad let them suck on his fingers with a little encouragement from Aunt Mattie. 

 Stella wasn't sure what she thought about the goats. 

 Brad was very excited to see Aunt Mattie.  Before she came down to St. George, he told me that he was going to go on a date with Mattie then marry her in the St. George temple. 

 Today we went on a hike/picnic with all the cousins.  Aunt Margie arranged it all, and it was a lot of fun. 

 Grandma Bundy with all the grand kids. 

 We took the double stroller over some rough terrain.  Sil helped me push the stroller over some bad rocks. 

Ready to eat some lunch.  

 I know Stella is feeling better because she ate her lunch and was more then willing to assist others to finish theirs. 
 Laynee and Bradford had a fun time tickling Uncle Barry.
