We went back to the Valley of the Sun for Easter. It seems like we have gone to Arizona a lot lately. It is hard to stay away from the abundant sunshine, pleading grandparents, and royal treatment we receive when we visit. I am elated any day that I don’t have to cook. AZ is such an easy trip from Utah, and well, we just love it there. It is our long-standing joke that Troy always brings the rain, and he didn’t let us down on this trip. It literally hadn’t rained in over a month, and of course it downpoured all day Saturday. Fortunately, the storm passed by quickly and we enjoyed a beautiful Easter Sunday.
Our baby wore his Easter spiffies.
He cruised along the bunny trail.
It was next to impossible to get a decent family picture with our wiggly toddler.
Troy and I were much more cooperative.
Blake was more interested in opening and shutting the door than going on an Easter egg hunt (that’s my boy), but I love this picture.
He was incredibly delighted each time the door opened and he could peek out from behind it.
The Easter Bunny filled his basket with a book, an Easter etch-o-sketch, playdough, and goldfish (crackers, not a real fish).
We persuaded Blake to pick up one egg from the obviously hidden bunch…
…until he discovered that there were were jelly beans inside. He gave up on the hunt at that point, but (to his mom’s great dismay) thoroughly enjoyed candy for the first time.
