Easter Sunday Fun

Easter with grandparents! Traditions, culture, and sugar. Lots of sugar. 

On Saturday night after returning from camping at Mt. Diablo, the girls went shopping to JoAnn's (for the last of the quilt fabric) and to WinCo for more candy and ingredients to make sushi! 
(I HAD to get the candy building blocks from WinCo! I love playing with them and eating them!)

After the priesthood session, we had a great sushi-making lesson from mom. 
Remember, when you make sushi, spread the rice thin, leave about an inch at the top of the seaweed, add strips of ingredients, roll carefully...
...and most importantly, remember to shout while you squish is all together! (so says Jon...) It was a delicious and educational dinner!

Easter Sunday morning dawned cool and cloudy in Antioch.  We enjoyed breakfast and the first session of conference, then we got to dye Easter eggs inside while the rain came pouring down outside! Our colorful Easter eggs did not last long this year.  They were boiled, colored, and consumed for lunch that very day.

After the second session of conference, Weston arrived and we indulged in a Koberstein Easter tradition: the Jelly Belly hunt! 

(does that say Happy Three-ster? very funny Dad...)
The Jelly Belly hunt occurs when the adults scatter/hide a truly insane amount of Jelly Bellies (like, almost an entire Costco container...) around the whole house...


Some are as easy to find as picking them up off the ground...

Some are hidden in the most ridiculously hard places, like INSIDE Lego Duplo structures, tucked under light switch covers, or high atop wall decorations...

Some Jelly Bellies don't ever make it to the bag.  Jade's mouth was constantly full of beans throughout the entire hunt...

The best part of the day was the amazing sessions of conference we got to watch and listen to.  It's exciting to look forward to seeing new temples in new places like the Ivory Coast, Haiti, and Thailand! Having conference on Easter is awesome! Hearing testimonies of Christ from such powerful witnesses adds a special spirit to the day we devote to celebrating the resurrection of our Lord! Wish it could happen every year...

How fun! My Japanese sister in law enjoyed seeing pictures of Jon's mom making sushi.
