Easter weekend....2012

So blessed to have everyone here for Easter this year...
Mark and Austyn came on Friday 
and
John and Sarah on Saturday

Bocce Ball is always a favorite...

Pretty sure that Mark and I 
beat everyone...
even John and Sarah
{and they had been practicing!}

Even Fox was happy to be home!



They always play basketball until
it gets too dark to see...

Grilled out hamburgers for dinner...

And then LOTS of egg dying!




My family came for lunch on Easter

Easter morning egg hunt...
Sarah holds the longest winning streak...
Anna won last year...
and
this year...
Mark jr was the new champ!
{and thankfully all 42 eggs were found!}



 After church, kids were given orders NOT to change
clothes until Mom can get a group picture...

Everyone was ready...and then
we noticed that Anna wasn't here yet...
boys had to call and "encourage"
her to hurry up!

Love the group shot! 
Thanks y'all!

The girls...

Egg hunting with the younger kids
{can you tell that Emily was NOT very happy?}

Big kids getting their 
Egg Hunt
Rules!

Late afternoon snack....yummy desserts!

ALL of the kids...
what a blessing to have them all together!
