Happy Easter

 


Last week Ben's cousins, Jenn and Matt, came up to visit us on their spring break from school. Ben had a BLAST! He loved playing chase with Matt and had the best time getting sugar highs from all the sneaky snacks Jenn slipped him under the table. We went on our first camping trip of the year with them. We had last minute change of plans seeing how the original destination was flooded the night before we left - but we ended up 30 minutes from the house at Wilson Island in Iowa. They had some really great trails we hiked and enjoyed DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge right down the road. We went to the SAC Museum and Jenn and Matt had the best time on the flight simulator. Saturday we spent most of the day at Mahoney State Park and the "hamster tunnels". It was the best.. we played tag and had 4 or 5 kids wanting to join in the fun. The ice skating rink was still open - probably one of the last weekends - and we enjoyed that as well. Ben was a little torqued off b/c we didn't let him on the ice - and he let us know about it.. he was NOT happy! Today we did the Easter thing and took the cousins to the airport so they could fly home. I think we all started to cry when Ben didn't want them to leave and stated to tear up.
We miss them already - but it is SO much quieter at my house.
I learned one thing from their visit - you can be on a phone conversation and text at the same time...

More pictures from the visit, Easter at the Papillion park, and the eggs we "tie dyed" the Martha Stewart way can be seen here...

Holy crap those are complicated looking eggs! How'd you do that???? I saw Martha's instructions for lace eggs in this year's Living Magazine, but I've never seen ones THAT fancy -- I would LOVE to know how you made them! KUDOS! They're BEAUTIFUL!
