Easter 2015

We had a lovely Easter this year in Singapore.  We kicked off the festivities on Saturday morning with an egg hunt in the condo.  There was a large group of kids gathered that morning to hunt eggs!  



Evan found one in the knot of a tree!

On Sunday we had an Easter service (no General Conference for us until next weekend). 


I found the boys some new church clothes for Easter. I didn't do that last year because they were going to be in  Uncle Justin's wedding in June and my mom was buying them outfits. 


After church we went to dinner at our friends house.  I sure do love my Singapore friends.  Its's so nice to be able to gather together as friends when family is so far away.  The food was amazing!  The conversation was hilarious and overall a great time!  


After ANOTHER egg hunt the kids played some kind of betting game with their candy.  They were so excited, involved, and sugar-hyped that it was sure tricky getting them all to look at the camera for a photo!


Happy Easter!

Hippopotamus

A Research Project by Evan

Evan did some research about the hippopotamus for his first grade project.  
He planned it all out at school, did his research, and decided how he'd make his diorama at home.  All I had to do was help him put the materials together.  




Evan did the typing and after we printed them out, he cut them and glued them onto the diorama.

War Museum


Our last day in Cambodia was short so we planned a short activity for the morning before heading to the airport.  We decided that the War Museum would be a good stop.  
The best thing about visiting this museum was the guide. 
He told us all about his life and experiences in Cambodia.  
We left feeling kind of down.  
We all know that war is ugly and our visit to this museum reminded  us of that.

More from Cambodia

We visited a few more temples on our second day in Siem Reap.  Here they are in photos! 

Ta Sohm



Neak Poam




Preah Khan

This temple was really cool, and very vast.  It was definitely labyrinth like.  I got turned around at least once.  I think it was symmetrical and so it was hard to tell which way you'd come or were going because it was all so similar.  













Elephant Terrace & Baphuon Temple

This was the LAST temple & site we saw.  I loved the elephant terrace, such cool features; and it's really amazing how everything is still in tact and standing today.
