Easter Weekend with the Pipkins

After spending the morning with cleaning the house and Ukulele lessons, we headed over to Cam’s house. Mom and Dad were already there. Dad and Cam had been spending the past few days working on sprinklers. Mom was with the boys. Kelly was at work.

Mom was happy as a clam with this little guy in her arms.

Just look how big he has gotten!


Cam came in for a little break.

It took a few minutes, but we got all set up to dye Easter Eggs.

The didn’t have a table out back, or at least not one that Cameron was aware of. So we used a box that a mattress had come in the day before. I’m not sure that Cam’s kids had done this before, but they were having fun with it.

After dying eggs, Mom, Kelly, and I hid eggs in the side yard in the front of the house. Then let the kids loose to hunt!


It was pretty cute.

Each of the kids got 12 eggs.

After all of that excitement, the kids just wanted to chill, play video games, and eat candy.

Really mostly eat candy.

So Karl and Kelly went head to head at Dr. Mario.

And Cameron and Dad called it quites out front for a while.

When they went back to work, Mom, of course read books and Karl hung out with baby Ash.

Cam and Kelly went to the store together, so Dad came in and joined the hang. Sloan thought he needed a shoulder ride.

Meanwhile, Karl got antsy, and decided to take his quad copter for a little spin. All the boys wanted to do was chase it around.

Mirah found a lady bug, and Karl crashed into a blossoming tree with the copter, which knocked down the blossoms.

The kids were just having so much fun together.


Then Karl got out his light weight plane.

While Mom and Ash looked on.

The clouds were rolling in, and the wind was starting to blow, but it was still warm enough to roll in the grass.

We were supposed to go to the Tabernacle Choir’s Easter concert, and I was really excited to do it, but around 2 I started to get a migrane, and it had gotten way worse by the time we got home from Murray. I was in bed by 8:30.
