I always plan on taking pictures when we have dinner parties but I never do. I planned on taking pictures of all the Easter food too but I didn't. I did take pictures of the desserts before everyone got here:
It was fun having a big group for Easter dinner; there ended up being 8 adults and 7 kids. After dinner the kids did an egg hunt in the backyard and then played for a couple hours while we all sat on the back porch visiting.
Gavin enjoyed his "boid":
which, by the way, I got the idea for making here: http://www.whattoexpect.com/blogs/astudentatmamauniversity/easter-desserts-for-kids-ooey-gooey-chickie-nests

The Atlanta LDS Temple has been closed for renovations for almost 2 years. The renovations are now done and the temple has been open for tours for a couple weeks before it is dedicated and closed off from the general public.Since most of the temple is normally closed off to children, this was a great opportunity for Gavin to get to see the inside. We went on our tour Wednesday. In preperation we had a family lesson on the temple geared toward Gavin on Tuesday afternoon. I taught a little lesson about the purpose of temples while Gavin looked at a slideshow of temples around the world (http://www.ldschurchtemples.com/). He then constructed a few temples of his own out of blocks.
His favorite was the Salt Lake Temple:
Also speaking of temples, I'm excited that one is being built right outside my home town of Liberty, Missouri. It's scheduled for completion sometime in 2012. Here are the details: http://www.ldschurchtemples.com/kansascity/
