This first part is a recap of two weekend-ago...and I have to brag about my hubby for a minute-- because Ryan had the amazing opportunity to represent Utah Valley University in the AMA International Marketing competition in New Orleans! He was among a handful of students chosen to go... and took part in two different competitions. He placed FIRST in the marketing strategy competition! WOOT! and a girl from UVU placed first in the Sales competition. GO UVU!
On Friday, we planted some flowers for the first time. Ellie loved planting the seeds and watering them. She is a little impatient and thought the flower should have been full bloom in a matter of 2 minutes... but she is becoming more patient :)
Friday night, we went camping with some friends! It was really fun. We woke up to it being REALLY windy though.. so we got the heck outta there early in the morning.
Isn't Utah beautiful?!
crazy mountain man!
Saturday, we went to the indoor pool! It takes Ellie forever to get used to the water and realize that swimming is actually a fun thing, and not a life-threatening activity ;)
We found a little friend at our neighbor's house.... Ryan just about died holding this baby duck.
Easter was fun this year-- Ellie kept saying that the Easter Bunny & Jesus are her best friends ;)
Just look at this excitement when she woke up to hidden eggs all over the house!
Ellie actually let me do her hair for once! Doesn't she look like such a cutie in her Easter getup?!? She is growing too fast....
Ellie & I went on a walk and spotted a real nest in a tree! She wanted to put her eggs in it.. I love how this picture turned out-
I put together a little Easter egg hunt at my dad's house for Ellie, my nephew, and my niece.
Here is the loot!
and the hunt begins!
My niece is the cutest
My brother & Sister-in-law put on this great passover program/dinner....complete with Lamb, mint jelly, pita bread, deviled eggs, and mashed potatoes. YUM!
After about 5 attempts and 3 candy bribes, we got ourselves a family pic! Hallelujiah!
Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
