Easter/Spring Break

So this year for Easter, we went to the grandparent's in Arizona.  They had all sort of fun activities planned.  A spring carnival and Easter egg "hunt."

 Face painting.

 Setting up for the "hunt"
 Jumping in the bounce houses.

 All ready for the mad dash...

 They are in there somewhere!
 On Easter morning, we had brunch with the bunny.
 And then went for a hike in the mountains.

A day at the circus with Pippi!

 I had the chance to be a chaperone for the first grade's trip to the circus.  Charlotta was so happy that I could come to school with her that day.  Lotta's friend Brianna.  We stop at a playground first, to get all the energy out and to have lunch.

 We had a fun day!
