Easter Weekend

Darrren drove to Moab and biked 102 mileson a Mountain Bike on Saturday. It is a jeeping/biking trail called the White Rim Trail. 100 miles on a Mountain bike is like 200 miles on a road bike. Lots and lots of ouch on your tail end.

Then after this great ride, you end up down there. At the bottom of the canyon. So to get out you have to climb/ride/walk your bike out of all these switch backs. I would have cried to be so exhausted and then see this.

We spent Saturday morning at Corie and Nolan's house. It was a great spring morning. We had some trampoline time. Since Nolan was the only Dad there, he had trampoline duty. I think he was tried by the end.

Corie had a fantastic idea. I loved how it made every thing so fair. Tyler could only get the green and blue eggs, Ella the purple and pink and Jonah the orange and yellow. Corie also put good things in the eggs like apple jacks, goldfish, fruit snacks, money, one chocolate per egg. It was a nice reminder that it didn't have to be all candy. It was a great afternoon.

Then we went to my parents house for a Hatch party. My mom always throws a good party. Lots of food and a fun Easter Treasure Hunt. Lots of Aunts and Uncles and lots of cousins.

We left that party and I went for a 50 mile bike ride out to Kennecott Copper Mine. It was a busy and wonderful weekend.

How fun to have cousin time. I love the picture of Nolan with all the kids. I am amazed at how dark Tyler's hair has gotten.
