my favorite thing about the spring is being able to see the newness of life.
living in utah has made spring extra special because we get to say goodbye to a serious winter.
even if the spring snow storms linger until June, we get to outside a lot more.
this year we headed up to Logan, a small farming town in northern utah, to see what i believe to be the best part of spring.
can you tell i am in love?
they were selling these little bunnies and i was considering it.
not only were there babies, but the whole farm had lots of little venues and workshops to show you have people lived back in the earlys.
the only time nikson smiled was when he was in this cart.
what a serious simon.
this is alice.
she is so special.
the photos from baby animal day were taken by our good friend Tyson.
it's nice travelling with a photographer.
Easter Day was probably the best day I can remember.
we had handsome's grandparents over for a delicious feast and a "spiritual" egg hunt.
blake and i are not into commercializing holidays to the extent of most of america so each egg had a bible scripture that taught about Christ's atonement, death, and resurrection.
we then watched this video.
each basket had a religious book in it and just a few pieces of candy.
simple sally over here!
it will definitely be our family tradition from now on.
could we have a more serious child?
what the heck!?
handsome's sister, Brooklyn, delivered this healthy wee one and boy does she have a lot of hair!
nikson has hair envy!
the best part about this weekend was me being able to define my relationship with the Savior now that i am an adult, married, with a child.
i have really been learning to use the Saviors aid in my efforts to be a good wife and mother.
i think there are multiple times in our lives when this is done.
if we believe in Christ, we reflect on how near to Him we feel and how that nearness is effecting others.
if we don't believe in Christ, we still seem to need an evaluation of "where we are" in the big scheme of things and wonder if we have a cause.
whatever your beliefs are, i hope you found this weekend to be one of happiness.
spring is beautfiul no matter what you believe.
