Happy Easter!

Although we were definitely glad we stayed an extra day in Phoenix to see Grandma Conquer and others again, we were a little sad we missed going to church on Easter Sunday since we drove back home that day. Emmy had school the next day, so we gave the girls a bath and when they got out they saw that the Easter Bunny had come! Emmy and Kaylee were super excited to see little baskets next to Leah and Mayzie’s cribs.

Grandpa Bruce came over for the egg hunt and helped us find all the eggs. Even the twins found a some.

We got to wear our Easter outfits to church the next week, and the girls all looked great! (Be sure to click on the picture so it doesn’t look like I’m missing my head!) We’re glad we got to spend a lot of the Easter season with family, and we had lots of fun on our spring break. If you look at the pictures above, you can even see the area above our fireplace that Julia decorated with her finds from Kirkland’s Home Store! Continue reading Happy Easter!

Great Grandma Conquer

We got to see Great Grandma Maevon Conquer a couple of times during spring break! We had initially thought we’d just get to see her once, but with an extra day we made sure to visit with her again. Cindy and Julia went and picked her up while they ran errands and she came and visited with us. The twins were so excited to see her! Emeline was named after Maevon’s mother, so Grandma made sure to tell Emmy all about her name.

The girls had a lot of fun at Grandma’s house, too. They didn’t want to leave! First, we got a tour of the house and all of the pictures and lots of stories about relatives. We only wish we had more time to hear more stories since we don’t get to go out to Arizona very often. The twins had a lot of fun with their grandma, too, and they laughed every time she joked around with them.

Fun with Family for Spring Break

We got to see lots of family in Mesa! Most of Julia’s relatives on her mom’s side live in Mesa, so we got in a lot of quick visits with family. Most of the Tawzer clan (including plenty we didn’t manage to get pictures of) went to Lynn and Dixie’s house where we got to talk a bit while Emmy and Kaylee rode bikes outside with their second cousins. It’s fun to have so many cousins!

While we were in Mesa we stayed at Cindy and Lee’s casita, which Emmy and Kaylee claimed as their own house by the end of the trip. 🙂 We got to see a lot more family at Cindy and Lee’s house, including their son Shawn, Kasey and Denise and a few of their kids (who got to hear Kaylee tell all about our trip to the zoo), and Great Grandma Maevon. We’re sad we didn’t take more pictures.

We got talked into staying an extra day so that we could see Julia’s cousin Mandy perform as part of an improv comedy group called Jesterz. What a lot of fun! Mandy’s sister Calli and her friend Fiona even babysat the girls for us that night, which was awesome. The girls rode bikes all evening and generally had lots of fun staying up past their bedtimes.

We’re really glad we could come visit!
