Look at the biggest smiles! Welcoming Brad home at the airport was pure excitement... especially when we spotted him out of the many people walking towards us:We are so happy to have Brad back home and we are thankful for the blessings that came to us while he was serving a mission. He was a great missionary and I'm sure the people of Brazil miss him already. I'm looking forward to hearing more stories about his mission as time goes on. I am also already excited / nervous for when Noah turns 19 and serves a mission. He has a great example to look up to.

My weekend started on Thursday when I took the day off work to chaperone Noah's class at the zoo. It turned out that Noah was the only one I was in charge of but him and I had a good time together. I loved being able to be there with him, that's something I couldn't really do until recently - and he loved it too.
Thursday was also a great day because I got my cast off! Seriously that thing was BUGGIN! The funny thing is that Russ and I were matching for one night before I got mine off... I broke my wrist, then 4 weeks later he broke his pinky finger. We totally posed for a pic - and Russ said "this better not end up on a blog". Oopsie! The self-timer function on cameras can be so handy sometimes!
Friday was the day my family had been anticipating for the past 2 years... Brad returned from his mission to Brazil!!
Saturday was a good day too... no pictures, but we watched conference and spent all day together - it doesn't get much better than being with people you love all day long. :)
Sunday of course was Easter and we woke up to find goodies the Easter Bunny left. (The girls weren't with us - hence the reason Noah is the only one in pictures!)
More general conference watching on Sunday was perfect for Easter. We also took a long drive, enjoyed sitting by a creek in perfect weather, and had fun that night at a family party. I was telling Russ how the 4 days leading up to Sunday night were such good days - and then it all ended perfectly too... Noah cuddled up in bed with us all night - something that never happens - I loved it and had to get a pic of him the next morning. I have so many sleeping pics of him - I love it!
