Easter Weekend

This Easter weekend, we went on a family hike up to Battle Creek Falls. It was an easy hike that the whole family could enjoy. I love spending time outdoors with all my boys!

 A few years ago we did this same hike when George was William's age. That year Stan hiked up with all his climbing gear, and he repelled down the waterfall. One year when our boys are older, I'd like to try that.

One fun Easter tradition is having our boys participate in an outdoor Easter Egg Hunt. Years past our boys have had a lot of fun running around finding eggs filled with chocolate, sweets, and small toys at my uncle and aunts home in Payson, the Deseret Peak Easter Egg Hunt in Tooele, and this year they were invited to one in my parents' neighborhood where I grew up.

Fishing at Utah Lake

Stan was so excited to take his boys fishing, and he wanted me to come and join in on the fun. It was almost dark when we arrived and the wind started blowing, so eventually William and I went into the car. So it wasn't that exciting for me, but Stan had a good time and Gregory and George loved it. 

We weren't there five minutes and they had their shoes off and they were playing in the lake with their cousins. They had a blast running around in the water scaring all the fish away.

Most of the kids pulled up their trousers, but not George. He liked getting his pants wet too!

We got a week permit to fish, so hopefully we get another chance this week to go fishing before we head back to Ireland.
