“Family”

While in Calgary, we went to Strathmore to visit my Gramma. All of my in-town family came, we ordered pizza, played crib and had so much fun! Holly and Greta love going to the lodge to visit Great Gramma. They never want to leave! Probably because my Gramma is so good about making us feel loved.

Our Easter tradition is to put together a Scavenger Hunt for our girls and at the end they find a little parcel of prizes. We keep it small; this year's treats included candy and a t-shirt. Maeve had a little less candy and some Sesame Street figurines in her basket. Our girls are so thrilled by this tradition and you can see it in their smiles. It's fun!

My sister, Alanna, went to the temple for her endowments while I was in Calgary and it was so exciting and happy to go and be there with her. My Mom and my cousin, Delaine, came too. The temple is so beautiful and wonderful and it's just extra to be there to witness someone's first time and then even more extra because she's my sister. I'm very grateful I was there for it. I love visiting the temples of the Lord. 

Everytime we are in Calgary, we always, always try to go see my Gramma. My girls love to visit her and are always so disappointed when it's time to leave. My Gramma is an expert at loving people and my girls for sure feel that love. Maeve's farewell hug to Great-Gramma was adorable - she wrapped her arms so tightly around Gramma's legs and gave a big squeeze. We love you Gramma!

We managed to sneak in an afternoon hike in Kananaskis Country with Conor's sisters and their families. It was a gorgeous day and so fun to be outside in the mountains. Holly stayed in Calgary with my parents because her knee hurt and she had her own kind of awesome day with them. The kids all hike so well together. At our halfway mark, we stopped for snacks and the kids built fires unsupervised. This was totally childhood unplugged. It was pretty dreamy.
