It's Been a Fun Week

last weekend we enjoyed a quiet, family filled, general conference weekend. we started a tradition of "cinnamon rolls and smoothie saturday" to kick off saturday conference. sofia really loved this decision:

in preparation for easter, my eager husband had a few "practice rounds" for sofia. he would hide empty easter eggs, and make sofia find them. i'm surprised he didn't time her, and make her do jumping jacks if she didn't find them all. we were prepping for the big community easter egg hunt that you'll see later in the post....

also in preparation for easter, my sweet mother sent us an easter package. we were so excited! grandma queen is the best at being sofia's personal fashion expert. i took a few pics for you to see what was inside:

an easter dress for sunday:

a fun dress for summer:

of course, a bathing suit for the upcoming season (with matching sandals and hair clips):

there was also easter candy, another 3 outfits and shoes for sofia, and a maternity shirt and dress for me. nevertheless, sofia enjoyed the box the most:

the day before easter was brutal. we woke up early to go to the provo riverwoods mall "all you can eat" pancake breakfast. we were the first ones there (that's how early we were).

(notice the bruise on her forehead? yeah, she ran in to the bathroom door yesterday):

after the riverwoods egg hunt, we went to first annual lavell edwards stadium hunt. we registered, but so did 4,000 other people. to say the least, it was packed.

the field was filled with eggs, candy, foam fingers, byu towels, football cards, and special prizes (like football tickets, tours of the locker room, etc).

it seriously was like the hunger games. there were even little "cornucopias" with eggs and prizes around them. jeff and sofia were in serious mode during this hunt.

it was a successful day, lots of eggs and candy won (no special prizes). all and all, the experience was worth it.


  1. okay, i am in LOVE with the pigtails! such a cutie! looks like you have had a terrific easter season. we have been very bah humbug here in texas. i'm jealous of all your adventures and that perfect white easter dress! miss you three.

  2. I'm so jealous of the BYU Easter egg hunt at the stadium. How cool is that?1?! Sofia is darling!
