The Zoo and Easter Family Night

My sisters’ kids are all on spring break this week so of course we want to party with them. Yesterday we all met up at the Hogle Zoo right when they opened. It was perfect timing and great weather. I HATE going to the zoo when it’s crowded and hot, but yesterday we left right as all the crowds were showing up.

After the zoo me and J when grocery shopping because we were in desperate need of all the foods! After, we crashed, I was exhausted.

For dinner, I met up at my moms and we both provided food for burgers. It was delicious and now I’m so ready for grill season.

We headed home and had family night. We watched this video about Christ and his atonement. I loved the short video, really put this week(the last week of Christ’s life) into perspective.

Then of course, we dyed eggs. J took over and did most the eggs while Josh and I watched.

He wanted the last egg to be all the colors, haha

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

    I love the zoo! We take our first graders there every year 🙂
    I wish I was still on spring break (mini-moon), coming back to reality is hard!
