Easter eggs hunts

We went to Boise the weekend before Easter for Holly's baby shower and was invited by Lane's Family to go to their Easter egg hunt. Of course the boys wanted to go so we went and had lots of fun. Their family has a huge backyard and the kids got to find lots of eggs. Then they brought out real bunnies for us to hold and play with. We had such a good time and always like to hang out with the Ranstrom family.
Look how cute Holly is!! so is the bunny
The load they got.
Saying goodbye
Then on Sat. we went to the high school Easter egg hunt. We went with our friends Natalie and Grant and their two little girls. There was lots of people there, so Jackson only got one egg , Ryan got five, and Sienna got two. The kids were a little sad that they didn't get more so Natalie and I went and got eggs and candy and invited Natalie's friend with her girls. Natalie and Grant got 22o eggs so the kids got tons of candy and had such a good time. Next year we decided to just have our own since we had more fun and the kids got a lot more candy.
This is what they came home with. What a load!!
For Easter we aren't big on the easter bunny so we decided to get the boys some toys for summer and things to do outdoors. We found a trampoline at Broulims that they were selling. The boys fell in love with it and begged us all day. Also it came with an inflatable basketball hoop, and so Chris broke down and just bought it for them. It has been the best money spent. The boys have been outside since we got it playing on it and having a great time. So come on over and play in our backyard!!
We started putting it up and only got this much up since it got dark, but it has a net. More pictures of them playing coming soon, when it is in the daylight.

Oh the stress in our lives

We have had a lot of stressful things going on. Chris has been looking for a new job in the Banking industry and things have been slow. Also Jackson has decided that he doesn't want to sleep anymore. He would get up at 2:00 every night and stay up till 3 or 4. Not a fun time of no sleep, he also stop taking naps during the day. We thought that would be good so he would sleep all night, we thought WRONG!! We have discovered that if he gets a 2 hr nap during the day he sleeps better at night. Weird I know, but he is a night owl, so he usually just sits in his room until about 11 till he falls asleep. I am actually ok with this because he is sleeping through the night and at this point that is all that matters. Things have been going good with that for about 2 weeks.
Life is just crazy when you don't know where you are going or going to end up. We hope we find a job soon that Chris can use is skills and degree. We will let everyone know when we know.
