Grandpa's Easter Egg Hunt Brought to Denver and Easter Surprises

Easter is always such a great time of year! I am so grateful for the Resurrection of my Savior, Jesus Christ and for his atoning sacrifice. What a blessing it is to have the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life and to know that I am a daughter of a Heavenly Father who really does love and care about me. I am so grateful for the promises that our Heavenly Father has made to us as we keep His commandments and repent and come unto him. What a blessing it is to know. I wish everyone in the world would know and choose to accept his plan. That would be awesome! I love the spirit of Easter as well as some of the fun traditions!
One of our favorite Easter traditions is that Grandpa Hughes always has a FANTASTIC Easter egg hunt! One that the kids look forward to all year long, and heck even the adults! We have missed it for several years now, that we have been living so far away. But, Grandpa and Grandma are always soooo thoughtful and send it to us through the mail each year! What sweethearts!!! One of the best things that Grandpa did while we were in Denver was bring the Easter egg hunt to the kids, since we would be missing it in Vegas again this year! Grandpa, thanks a ton, we had a blast!!!! And we were so grateful that we got to share it with you, Grandma, Aunt Bonnie, Amber, Kayla and Taylor! What a fun time to be with you guys in Denver! Throughout the pictures you can see how much everyone enjoyed it! Nathan got into it so much he had to take off his shoes during the hunt so that he could run faster to get the eggs. haha, what a smart kid! Since we came home from Denver on Easter Sunday, there are also a couple of pictures of the kids looking in their Easter baskets at home and a picture of them dying Easter eggs! What fun! The last picture is of Brooke with her very first tea set. Aunt Bonnie gave that to her for her Birthday while she was there with us in Denver! She loves it and continues to play with it! Thank you for thinking of her! We love you!
