Once again, we were really missing our families when this holiday set in, but we tried to make up for it by holding all the same traditions with friends. First an Easter picnic and egg hunt up in Bailey Canyon. Lots of fun families from the ward were willing to join us and make it special. The adults pretty much sat around and enjoyed the weather and the kids played like crazy. Reed had an especially good time this year. Gathering and hoarding little brightly colored balls full of candy was right up his alley!
We filled up with fried foods at Big Daddy's Diner in Cloudcroft before we headed back down the hill to Alamogordo.
Then Sunday after church we had a potluck Easter dinner at the Spencers with more ward friends, plus Sofia and John. Totally good food and another fun time :)
