The Easter Bunny Came!


Happy Easter everyone! We had such a wonderful weekend (minus the stomach flu). Saturday was definitely the highlight. We spent most of the day in the temple doing work for some family names. My Mom and Aunt Sue worked really hard to make sure that almost everyone that was there (21 in all) were able to go through for a family name. The "crowning moment" if you will, was when my Dad and his brothers and sister were able to be sealed to their parents. It was incredible. Words can't even express the feeling that was in that room. I feel so honored that we were able to attend that special moment. I am so thankful for the temples.
After the temple my Wilson family met at Nichol's Park and had chicken and an Easter Egg hunt for the little kids. It was Will's first time, and I was surprised that he actually got what we were doing! He collected several eggs, and loved shaking them. There were some hardboiled eggs, and he even took a huge bite out of it with the shell on! Yummy. That evening we went to my sister Cami's house to watch Enchanted. We loved it! The kids were even mesmerized by it.
Sunday morning, early, Will came down with the stomach flu. Again. Seriously, I don't know how to escape this sickness issue! He would act fine, and then he would lose it. So sad! We decided to stay at my Mom's anyway. My family all came for a prime rib dinner (mmmm) and another Easter Egg hunt. We had so much fun with the little kids. They definately bring the excitement back in the holidays! We were even able to sneak in a quick visit with Dallas' Grandma and Grandpa Nicoll. It was really great to see them- we don't get over there enough.
I had so many pictures from the family weekend I just decided to do a slide show. Enjoy!

Amy, I cannnNOT believe how adorable your boy is. It was so great to see pictures of the Wilson fam. It's been way too long. The best story was eating the egg w/ the shell still on. Love it! Love you,
