Easter was the day after we got home from Vacation, so the Easter bunny decided to just bring us some fruit, and a chocolate bunny for the kids. He just thought after a vacation we didn't need a big basket of candy..... He is a very smart Bunny.

Fun in the sun!!!

Day 5 of the vacation we spent the day being lazy at our hotel in St. George. We swam, laid around, and did a little shopping at the outlet stores.

Jeff is the only one that wasn't lazy. He went on a run.

This is Bradlee's face right before going under water.... Hilarious!!!
