We bought an RV, and took it for its inaugural run to Moab this week! We had so much fun! We hiked in Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park, and enjoyed campfires and marshmallows at night at our campground. We went to Horsetheif Campground, and it was one of the most beautiful campgrounds I've ever stayed at. The trailer was great to have, because it got quite windy and rainy in the afternoon one of the days, and so we stayed inside and read books, which was very relaxing. We got caught in the wind at the end of our hike that day, hiking the trail to Landscape Arch, and the sand stung our skin and got all in our eyes, mouth, and hair. Rachel and Natalie were somewhat sheltered, because they were in the hiking backpacks, behind mommy and daddy, but Lizzy was hiking on her own, and had to hike into the full force of the terrible sandstorm! It was a really fun trip, and we are looking forward to our next camping adventure! The first few pictures are blurry, because I didn't realize the camera lens was dirty!

The girls had a great Easter this year! We woke up and hunted for eggs and candy, which the Easter bunny had hidden around our living room. Then we had a special Easter breakfast of yeasted waffles with strawberries! Daddy had to go to work, and the rest of us headed off to church, where the Easter program was really wonderful. The primary kids sang a song, "Did Jesus Really Live Again?" After church, we went down to Grandma Sue's, where it was also Grandpa John's birthday! We had a terrific Easter dinner with the whole family!
