I'm not sure why I thought once a person has kids their life is all work and no fun. Being a parent is so fun. It can be hard work but it's by far the most rewarding thing I know I'll ever experience. This Easter, I was wishing I had someone (old enough) to make an Easter egg hunt for. I decided, 27 is old enough right?

Danny might get sick of the kid in me but I'm not sure it's going anywhere. I made an Easter Egg Hunt for him in our yard. It was mildly awkward having our neighbors watch Danny, by himself, walking around our yard picking up colorful eggs. I loved it though.

To find his eggs, Danny called in the help of this cute little chickie.
I can't wait til she can get into Holidays!
After our Easter we headed over to Ricker and Cher's house. The Easter Bunny at the Smart's home left glitter and confetti all over. It was so fun!

Brutus thought the glitter and confetti was pretty fun too.
Not quite as much fun as Danny had vacuuming it up for 45 minutes...

Millie loved her Easter Egg Hunt. Not much competition but she was still way excited
We had a fun Easter. I love when General or Stake Conference fall on Easter. This year we had Stake Conference. My purse may or may not have been filled with Easter candy:)
After that we enjoyed spending time with the Carter Family at Danny's Aunt Stacey's house.
Pearl in her favorite spot, Danny's chest. Nothing like an Easter nap after the sugar crash.

My first pic of me with Pearlie smiling. I love it!
This is us waiting anxiously for baby Bayliss to be born.
Pearl couldn't wait to meet her new cousin.
Doesn't it seem like slobbery Pearl is looking at Baby Bay like her afternoon snack??
She hun-geee!
Pearl maybe used to look like a St. Bernard but has quickly grown to resemble a tank next to Baby Bayliss. We're so excited to have the caboose of the fearsome foursome here. He is so cute!
Hope you all had a Great Easter!

What a fun Easter. Next year Danny will be helping the Little Chickie find her own eggs. What a cute Easter Family picture. And Danny was a Saint for the vacuum job.

Loved the post! Wish I could have seen Danny out on his easter egg hunt.

Even through the computer screen I can feel the power of Pearl's hair flowing.

I never noticed your life motto. Awesome!

OK. Every time I check your blog, I'm amazed by 2 things. One: Your little Pearl is absolutely beautiful. Seriously, you guys made one gorgeous little baby. She looks just like you. Which brings me to Number Two: You are one HOT MAMA! Seriously! You are beautiful, Rachel! I love all your great photos and you are hilarious. LOVED all the blessing pics. It made me miss all the Smart Fam in Utah. Say hello to everyone for me.
