Easter Weekend

All the cousins together for church.

All the cousins together for Easter egg hunt!

So I froze my rear off in St. George this weekend! I was so excited to head south for Easter weekend, to go where it's warm and sunny. Yea . . . it was cold and rainy. I'm sorry, I know I'm getting whiny about this, but seriously, I beginning to wonder if I'm a bad weather magnet or something.
I did have fun though. I always do when I'm with my sistas and their families. Just hanging out and shopping or being together and talking is guaranteed fun with them.
I also survived my first tornado. Well, I doubt it would even be classified as a tornado, but it sure felt like one. We were outside the school where my oldest sister works, having a picnic and getting ready for an Easter egg hunt, when I noticed the wind kicking up in a swirling pattern over by where my some of the guys were playing football. The wind was strong and really stirring up some dust and sure enough, it headed straight for us! Before we knew it, we were right in the middle of this massive twister. We hung onto the little ones, who were scared and crying, and covered our heads so we wouldn't get smacked with debris. It was intense! The swirling wind stayed there long enough to suck up all our garbage, pelt us with wood chips from the playground, and cover our lovely pastel frosting cupcakes with dirt and sand, then it moved on. We watched for about twenty minutes as the aluminum tins, grocery bags and paper plates climbed higher and higher in the sky. Finally, they traveled out of sight, only to land in some unknown destination.

Quite a weekend! I hear snow is on it's way this week. I don't know about global warming, but I'm pretty sure our weather is seriously bi-polar!

LOL. Sound like a rough, pleasent, whirlwind of a weekend.
It was BEAUTIFUL in northern Utah on Sunday. You should have moved your party there.
But oh so nice to spend holidays with family!!
