“In all of living, have much fun and laughter.
Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.”
-Gordon B. Hinckley


This last week, after all the sickness was gone (Hip, Hip, Horray!!!!!!!!!),
our little family got pretty busy having fun again.
Of course Easter is always fun. Well, for the kids anyway. They had so much fun on their Easter trail hunt and this year found that the Easter bunny hid their surprises in the dryer! Silly wabbit! It was so nice to go to church again, after missing at least a month with being sick and Josh's yucky work schedule. Our ward choir did such a wonderful job with an Easter program and bringing the spirit into our day. We topped the day off with a wonderful dinner at my sister Eden's house. Boy does my family make some good grub!

Then on Monday, it was off to Mesquite.

So no offense for all you Mesquite lovers out there, but I had never been and was "informed" that it was pretty nice with lots of fun things to do. Well, I'm not going to complain. It was warm...I'll give it that. And besides the constant smell of old, or new cigarette stench....the kids had a wonderful time. We were able to go swimming, play a little put-put, and drive the go-carts. Then on Wednesday we went to Las Vegas for the day. And even though it doesn't smell any better than Mesquite....it was fun for the kiddos. And I guess that is what it's all about, right? Or is the hokey-pokey what it's all about? Same thing if you ask me!!!!

I am so glad you guys are all well finaly!!!! I agree with you a 110%- Mesquite does smell like old cigarette smoke. I think it's all the old people smoking all the old cigarettes- but that's just my opinion. I did cut my hair two weeks ago. This is the shortest it's EVER been. I love it!!!! It is so much easier to do. Sooner or later I will get a good picture of me on my blog- I can never seem to find one. :)

I love Belle's Easter dress. I'm glad your kids had fun Mesquite/Vegas- I would have to agree with you, though, they're pretty nasty cities :)
