My Easter Break, in a Nutshell

I have been away from computers since Friday afternoon and I have enjoyed it! Dusty had the kids since Thursday after school and we took them home this evening. We had a full and wonderful weekend! Friday I got there and made a chicken with stuffing and gravy before we went to revival Friday night. (Mackenzie and I stayed at Dave and April's house in the basement every night. We had a lot of fun hanging out with them and especially with Jacob...never a dull moment) So on Saturday we got up and headed to the house. We had breakfast and went fishing. For the first time I actually outfished everyone! I caught two and Mackenzie and Andrew caught one each. We went home after and had a baked ham (the frozen leftovers and ham bone will make 6 meals!!) mashed potatoes, and green beans. Then we headed to church...realizing at the end of the driveway that church started at 6 and not 7....hehe! Services were great both nights!! Sunday morning we got up early and got ready for the Easter service. It was a BEAUTIFUL day! Thankfully for us, Kristi brought her camera and caught us on our way it. I got a picture of us on our first Easter as an unofficial family!

After church we went to the mission for a delicious lunch prepared by Ms Deborah. It was yummy! Then we headed home for some much needed Andy Griffith Show. We went back to church for the evening services and then headed back home exhausted from a long day (= But blessed from two wonderful services!
Monday morning, we made some breakfast and then headed to South Mountain for a hike. We hiked to the waterfall and took a couple of pictures there also....
We make a pretty cute family...hehe!! Zac and Kenzie don't look too thrilled to be in the picture with me...I promise they really do like me!

On our way back down the mountain we stopped for a little bit of wading and splashing in the creek. It was cold and refreshing...just ask Dusty. He slipped on a rock and fell in on his rear!! It was hilarious...he also pushed Zac in (=
Today we got up late since Dusty had to teach at the mission this morning. We had some blueberry muffins for breakfast and a late lunch of chicken, mashed potatoes, and green beans (left over day). I made an oatmeal cake with coconut and brown sugar frosting and Andrew, who hates cake, actually LOVED it! HOORAY!!! We played some cards and cleaned up and took the kiddos home.
All in all it was a great weekend. I can't think of a group of people I'd rather be with than my Bracketts. I hope your weekend was good too!!!
