The kids quickly passed out after the novelity of the snow wore off.

On Wed before we left we went to the aquarium, which we hadn't done before. It was pretty neat. You got to feed the seals, Jackson liked that. Abagayle not so much, since the food was cut up fish. Here is one of the seals.
The kids really like the hermit crabs however they had no interest in holding them. They just wanted Dad to hold them, so they could look closer.
Then we started the drive home.
Abagayle started her breakfast with a chocolate bunny, little sneak :)
Then it was off to church to hear Zeke's talk, we left after sacrament meeting to be back to my mom's for an lunch with Mom, brother and his wife. I didn't eat anything, not feeling so good, but the food looked and smelled great!
Off to Brandon's family's house for Easter dinner with everyone! Karen made turkey and ham, it was a lot of food, she had banana splits for dessert. It quit raining for a bit so we did a quick egg hunt for the kids in the yard.Aunt Jessica and Jackson enjoying the gummy rabbit teeth from the hunt.
We left late that night to head back to Portland so we could leave the next morning for Seaside.
I didn't get a picture of the kids with the Easter bunny, Abagayle was too scared and Jackson just ran up and gave him a piece of candy and ran away. :)

Apparently during his prayer at night he said "please let Jesus come to church and I can see him with my bananacopters". Brandon said he started laughing right in the middle of his prayer, Jackson promptly told him "we have to be quiet during prayers dad, till I say Amen"
My son cracks me up.
Sidenote-he always asks if Jesus can come to church with us, so that was nothing new. But seeing him with his bananacopters was.

When I told him to finish up the call, he respnded "Would you be quiet, I am on the phone, jeez" Then I hear him tell his aunt, "That was my crazy mom, she was just bugging me" I couldn't help but laugh.
I hadn't quite noticed how long it had been until the call ended. 50 min. Mind you I was on for a min or so to answer a question. Jessica, I think spent most of the time on with him. He loves them so much.
He gets it from both us, while we were dating we would talk on the phone till 1 or 2 in the morning sometimes. The teenage years should be fun :)
Last week we went to the zoo with some friends. It was a fantastic day for it, sunny and even warm. The kids had a great time. We took Ezra with us, the kids were so excited that he could come. I am so glad it is sping time and we can get outside again.
This is Abagayle's favorite part of the zoo, the sand box with footprints :)
Hoarsy rides for everyone
