Act 4; Scene 38: A Picture Tour of Our Easter Weekend

Started off the weekend early with a trip to see Seussical, the Musical--put on by the awesome youth theater program I work for. Tommy LOVED the Cat in the Hat and would ask me where he was whenever he was offstage. Up close he wasn't that sure about him...

Saturday morning neighborhood egg hunt!

...You want me to do what?!

OK, I get it now! Don't touch my eggs!

Saturday celebration of the big 3-0. I'm holding up the last candle which wouldn't fit in my hand.

Visit with Grandma and Grandpa Center!

 On Saturday afternoon we headed up to Heber for the train ride. We seemed to have a series of unfortunate events--it took us longer than we thought to get there, we got lost and couldn't find it, and Tommy couldn't take the zig zags through the canyon and threw up all over everything. This resulted in us missing our train ride. Fortunately, the nice staff got us tickets for the next train in two hours. So we had time to clean up (notice Tommy is wearing his jacket sans a shirt in all these pictures...). We also had A LOT of time to play with the baby animals.

That little calf had the sweetest face!

On the train, excited for the ride!

Recently Tommy has been sporting this duck face...all the time! He just goes around with his lips pursed! Weirdo!

Finally home and out of smelly clothes. He wanted to put his hat back on, and is anxiously awaiting a cup of milk.

Saying "hi!"

I am sad that the only pictures we managed to get on Easter were those of my bunny cakes! But what can I say, I was happy how they turned out! Here is a photo journal of the process: 


And of course, what would Easter be without a picture like this: 

I love this picture of the children from all over the world with Jesus. And what a beautiful offering that little bouquet of flowers is! It reminds me that all my little offerings mean something. And that I should keep offering.

So Happy Easter, and remember to keep Christ in the center of your picture.
