We always enjoy coloring easter eggs and it's always more fun with friends!
 Ben with his eggs
 Just so Daniel doesn't wonder where he was during all the fun....he was playing with Penny
 Sierra really got into the egg coloring too! I was surprised! I only boiled her a few thinking she wouldn't really care. Next year I'll remember and boil her a lot too.
 My attempt to take pictures of everyone. We have the boys table....Preston Waite, Timathy Bywater, Ben and Andrew.
 And, the girls... Evelyn Waite, Lacy Bywater, Hanna Bywater, Hopelan Bywater (hiding)

Sunday was pretty bright!

After church we had a little egg hunt...again, just so Daniel doesn't wonder why there are no pics of him. He spent the time here watching the kids run around the yard.

all in all....a great easter, quiet and peaceful...just the way I like it.

its great to be 8!!!

What a fantastic year this is! Andrew turned 8!! We had a small party at home. Just us! Then Andrew and I went to see The Music Man at the stake center. Daddy was helping with the stage crew and Andrew's primary teacher from last year was playing the part of Harold Hill. We had a fantastic time! We were even able to take Hopelan Bywater with us, and sit with our friends Amber and Evelyn Waite. I forgot to take a picture.

This year...
 his favorite color is BLUE
he wants to be a BULLET TRAIN DRIVER when he grows up
favorite song on the piano LITTLE SHOOTING STAR

You're growing up so fast Andrew! I'm so proud of the young man you're becoming! Can't wait to see what the year has in store for you!
