Enterprise and The Easter Bunny Cave

After spending a couple of days in northern Utah, Jason had to fly to LA for work so we dropped him off in Salt Lake then headed south to our favorite place, aunt Angel's house. This place is just as good as Disneyland in my kids' eyes, with horses to ride, fields to explore, cats to chase, cousins to play with, a trampoline to jump on, forts to build, goodies to eat and four wheelers to drive. This trip was especially fun because I got to take my kids to one of my favorite childhood places: the Easter bunny cave. I have such fun memories of visiting my grandparent's when I was younger and my aunt Angel and Felisha would take us kids to this big cave in the mountain where the Easter Bunny lives. After exploring the cave we would find candy left by the Easter Bunny on the other side (what are the odds!?) It was so fun to carry on the tradition with my own kids and see them get so excited the same way that I used to.

the caves were much longer and more confining than I remember (not good for my claustrophobia!). There used to be a pipe that went through the mountain, but now it's just this really long cave.

After spending a couple of days in Enterprise, we drove to St. George and had a fun day shopping and going to lunch before I headed down to Vegas to pick Jason up. It was a great ending to an amazing vacation!

Maddox loved his great grandpa, especially when he would take him for walks outside. Grandpa had the special touch!

Maddox was so curious about little Elsie (my aunt Angel's 2 month old baby)

You're right, who needs Disneyland when you've got Angel's house? As we've been talking about moving and getting a new house and stuff my kids have requested several times that we get a house and yard just like Angel's. I wish! Glad you had such a fun time! I wish I could take my kids to the Easter Bunny cave too. How fun to relive the memory with your own kiddos! Oh, and I can't believe how big Maddox is getting! It's been way too long since you've posted pictures of him. I need more!

I have not heard of the Easter Bunny Cave before. I will have to ask Coby about it. How fun!
