Easter Part 1

I still have lots of rewinding to do but decided to go current for Matt.  He wasn't able to be with us this Easter weekend.  It was his weekend to work.  He was also called out a lot in the days leading up to Easter, so we haven't seen him much. I realized this weekend how much we ALL miss him!  The kids and I had a great time and thanks to both sets of Grandparents, Matt had an Easter meal tonight (probably the only meal he's eaten all weekend!)

We started off by visiting Great Grandma King. The kids loved the backyard.

 She cut daffodils for the girls.

 The pictures are all happy, but the kids were all in shambles and not getting along at all!  I left before Grandma at her wonderful age of 88 had to witness WW III. I will be brutally honest and say that we aren't all great all the time.  I left in complete tears and had to cry in the nearby Church parking lot.  I guess I hadn't seen Grandma for quite a while and was thinking of the old days of visiting on her back was that way for about 20 seconds. I regained control and headed over to Papa Gary's and Grandma Kaye's.  WOW! A fantastic meal and egg hunt followed.  So much fun.

 The boys had to wait a full 30 seconds after the girls and were ready!

 Aunt Michelle was able to come on her lunch hour too!

After the egg hunt I was able to go to Aunt Michelle's store and spend a long time trying on clothes.  It's like having a personal helper bring you clothes!  I ended up buying the exact outfit she was wearing.  SOOOOO proud of her in that she is now a district manager, a huge promotion for her! :)
