Easter- Part 2

On Saturday, April 11th, our ward had their Easter party. The party started off with the kids doing the bunny hop dance. Our friend Starla led the way. Hyrum wasn't sure about the dance at first, but when he saw all of his friends up there he decided that doing the bunny hop was okay.

After a great potluck dinner, the kids went outside for their Easter egg hunt. Each child was told to find six eggs of a different color. The primary set up a great activity for the kids. For each egg, the kids would go to a different station that would teach them about the true meaning of the Easter season. Below is a picture of Hyrum with our friend who was a Roman solider. Greg did a great job telling the story of the Easter story from his perspective.The kids did quite well at sitting through all the different stations, even Ben and Emmy. I think that is because at each station each child was given a cup of candy to help keep them quiet.After the ward party, the kids came home and took naps. After their naps we did another little Easter egg hunt in the back yard. We were supposed to go to an Easter egg hunt with some of our friends, but the kids were still sleeping when we were supposed to be at the hunt. As a result, we did our own little hunt again.

Emmy once again was the first to notice that there were eggs in the back yard. The kids had great time finding the eggs in the backyard. It was the perfect way to end the day.
