Easter 2010

Holidays are a lot more fun when you have kids old enough to enjoy them! We started off the morning with a visit from the Easter Bunny. Instead of an Easter basket Quinn got an Easter bucket so that he can take it to the beach this year. He also got a spinning top that lights up which he loves! A spade, a shape sorter toy, a few spring clothes, a magnet fishing set, (which sadly was way more interesting in the packet than out as the magnets are really weak, that's what a dollar will get ya) and pinwheels as Quinn has been learning a lot about wind and blowing.

For Easter this year our friends Carlee and her husband Adam put together a fun little Easter egg hunt. We looked for eggs and had a potluck brunch. It was delicious! We made Strussel butterscotch apple muffins. I have to admit I was quite proud of these muffins. I ended up combining two apple muffin recipes and adding a few tweaks myself. I don't usually mess with recipes that much and it was fun to experiment. These turned out heavenly. I'll post the recipe sometime.Quinn did quite well looking for eggs. We helped him find one which made it into his bucket quite well. But after that, he was way more interested in banging together the last two he found and running around with them.

We finished off the day by watching General Conference and making pork with lemon caper sauce (which was heavenly) with English roast trimmings such as mashed rutabaga, roasted parsnips, and rolls.
