I have absolutely loved the church's Easter campaign 'Because of Him'. I'm sure just about everyone has watched the short video at least once, but if you haven't, you can watch it HERE. I promise it will be worth your time. Because of our Savior, Logan and I will get to be with Eli again and raise him as the baby he once was. We won't miss out on the experiences that were cut short in this life and that brings us such peace and happiness.
As for yesterday, we had a wonderful time with both of our families! We attended our new ward for the first time and met some wonderful people already. I'm excited to get more involved! After church we ran over to Logan's parents' for a quick brunch and then to their ward to hear them speak. Well done, Keith and DeAnne! After listening to Logan's parents we went home and exchanged baskets with each other. I'm pretty sure Logan forgot the Easter Bunny was supposed to come because it looked like I had been visited by Santa Clause! I was absolutely spoiled. I hope you enjoyed your basket full of candy, dear! Dinner was spent with my family and we had a great time! The grand kids looked adorable and had a blast with the Easter egg hunt and crafts. Many thanks to my parents for making yesterday so special!

As some of you may recall, I recently flew to New York and made a road trip back to Salt Lake. A dear friend of mine lives near Albany and is going to school at BYU-I. I jumped all over the opportunity to accompany her and her mom on their journey out West. Most people thought I was crazy for going but we had a great time! What's better than spending three straight days with two fantastic people?! The only downside: They were stuck with me that long. Where are the pictures, you're wondering? I didn't take one. Not a single picture. I was enjoying myself way too much to worry about taking pictures. I'm sure you can imagine the beautiful scenery we had as we drove through New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming and into Utah... ;) We actually had plans to stop and do some sight seeing throughout the trip but were unfortunately met by some nasty weather so we ended up having to drive straight through. I'm sure I'll get another chance to check out everything we missed along the way. Many thanks to Rachel and her parents for such a fun trip!
Finals start for Logan this week and finish up on the 30th. He will then have a week and a half off before the Summer semester begins on the 12th. We will definitely get as much playing in as possible during those 10 days to make up for his lack of a break. We've spent the last couple weeks making all sorts of changes to our new little home and love what's been done so far! As soon as we get the painting finished next week we'll be able to decorate and then I'll post pictures :)
We hope everyone had a happy Easter!
