So last week I felt amazing, and Scott has class ALL DAY on
Thursdays, so I took advantage of the 
amazing weather and took Rivers to the zoo.
I think everyone else had the same idea, because the place was packed, and we had to wait 30 minutes to get in.

But we still had tons of fun.

Afterward we went over to Scott's school and had lunch with him.
Then we came home and crashed!

I'm glad we got to do this because in a few months we will be home bound and Rivers will no longer be an only child.

I realize that New baby will never be an only child,
and I will have to make sure I have plenty of fun things for both my babies to do and feel special,

But this was probably the only time I'll be able to go to the zoo with just a backpack of treats, and no stroller.

We had a great day!!

We start Easter on Saturday,
meaning, I get to spread out my Easter fun over the whole weekend.
My reason for this I'm sure I've explained before,
but I like to separate the "fun" part of Easter
from the religious part.

Scott is totally on board with this, and we've had a lot of success doing it this way.

Friday night I got the baskets ready, that's
right I made one for new baby as well
It was only an outfit, but I really wanted to have a reason to celebrate
my babies
 Rivers got some toys, and a new suit, and of course candy.
We also hid eggs and colored eggs
I tried using Kool-aid this year instead of smelly kits.
It smelled amazing and the eggs turned out great.
I couldn't find blue or yellow Kool-aid, but Rivers didn't know and still
had fun.
 Rivers loved looking for eggs and really enjoyed the jelly beans.

Later that Saturday morning we went to my friends Laura's house
(who was in town from NC)
and went to a HUGE Easter egg hunt.  They had hidden over 44 dozen eggs!!
Some had prizes and money.
Rivers loved it!!
This is the second year we've gone and it has been a blast!
Plus there are only about 20 kids so Rivers isn't competing with
too many for eggs.

Sunday morning I didn't have any meetings!!
We got up and got ready for church, and talked about Jesus.
I also sang in church, but after the nursery kids, so Rivers went up
and sang for the first time!!  I was in tears!
Of course I'm pregnant so it's not surprising,
but being emotional, and singing about the Resurrection of Christ, and being squished for air
made my singing not the best and I was a crying mess by the time the song
was over.
But I did manage to dress Scott and Rivers the same so I still felt like a winner.
After church we took naps and went and saw my parents and grandparents
and all the cousins

Rivers was pooped after a busy weekend
I love my Savior and my family.
