The Easter Bunny came today and left surprises along the way!

 The kids had fun coloring eggs and the mess left behind was proof of that!
 They were all excited to see what the Easter Bunny brought
 I think he went a little overboard this year, since the baskets were overflowing!
 The more the better!
Fun toys, candy, surprises!
For our Easter egg hunt, we went to Taylorsville park. There were lots of us this year!  
There was our family, Lori & Aaron's Family, Sandi & Paul's family, Grandma & Grandpa Larsen, Charee, Marianne, Colby & Christina's Family, and Andrea & Scott's family.  Audra and the kids usually come too, but didn't make it this year.
Eggs are hidden all over the park
Any time they found another child's name on the egg, they had to give them their egg instead of letting them find it on their own.  Silly kids!
The Easter Bunny hid some very well!
Grandma and Grandpa Larsen helped the kids find their eggs 
and hid a special one for each of them 
(with $5 in them).  The kids were thrilled!
Lydia searched and searched for all of her eggs.
Her basket was over flowing and eggs kept falling out.  I think the Easter Bunny better remember to hide less next year!

Even the older boys had fun together
This will always be a tradition for our family, no matter how old the kids get!

Lovin' The View!

 Ken took the kids to visit Grandma and Grandpa Williams at Utah Lake.  Grandpa took them on a boat ride.  It was fast and thrilling!!
 Windy and a little chilly, but good times with Grandma!
 Brook and Spencer got to sit on the front of the boat.  Calm waters! Such a gorgeous view!
 Posing for the camera, of course!  Looks like they had a blast!

Six Flags Magic Mountain!

 We decided to fly into John Wayne airport. 
 Meeting the characters at Six Flags was Lydia's favorite thing to do there!
 My favorite thing was taking pictures!!
Such perfect weather in California!
Poor Brighton was too short for Superman by 1/8 of an inch!  He was so excited and got all the way to the front of the line, but they wouldn't let him on.

 X2 is one of the newest rides....and the scariest!!  Ken couldn't wait to ride it!
Goliath is a HUGE roller coaster.  One of the favorites!

The kids got a kick out of pretending to be Elmer Fudd!
 Tweety and Sylvester liked Lydia so much that they autographed her map!
She felt so special!
 Batman and The Flash were stopping everyone to take pictures.  Brooklyn felt a little silly but hey....they're awesome!
 I think Lydia had a little crush on Batman.  She kept wanting to go look for him after this.
Mom and Lydia stuck together in Bugs Bunny Town.  Good times!!
 Lydia rode the train
 and the bus
and even Tweety's bird cages!  No lines so she got right on!
