We feel very blessed and grateful that Taber's parents and my Dad were able to fly out to see us perform in Savior of the World. (My mom would've come too but she's was watching my sister's kids so Rachel could be here : )
They sat on the front row, for every show, and it was great to see how touched they were by the performances.
The first time my Dad saw it he cried through the whole thing. Afterwards he gave me roses and then worked the crowds, greeting people and proudly saying, "Hi! I'm Becca's Dad!" Several of my friends told me afterwards that they'd never seen such a proud papa ; )
They were only in town for the weekend, but it was awesome having a house full of family.

We are especially grateful to Grandma Karen for making Easter so special for the kids. We were so busy all week with dress rehearsals and performances that we hadn't done anything to prepare for it. Luckily Grandma showed up with Easter games, crafts, treats, toys and even Easter dresses. She brought stuff to color eggs and brought plastic eggs for an egg hunt. Without her I don't know what we would've done. Thank you Grandma Karen!!

Easter morning was also a lot of fun with the grandparents around. Papa Uda was sleeping in the play room where the Easter bunny had left the kids baskets. Silly Papa had stayed up way too late the night before and had only gotten a few hours of sleep when the kids came bounding into the room, jumping on his bed and yelling, "WAKE UP PAPA! THE EASTER BUNNY CAME!!"
He was a good sport and rolled right out of bed to join in the fun.
The reason Papa was up so late? Playing on his new iPhone. The kids were pretty intrigued by it too. Check out Cam's face!
Lots of smiles on Easter morning
After the egg hunt we got ready for church while Dad, Rachel, and the Riggs all got ready to go to the airport. We took a few more pics before everyone had to leave.
The girls looked precious in their Easter dresses from Grandma. Couldn't quite capture a pic of everyone looking at the camera and smiling (especially Cam who was really mad that we put him in a suit) but I'm glad we got some pics of all of us together. Thank you to all our family who came out and supported us in the play. We LOVE you so so much!
