Dianna's Birth, Hyrum Easter Egg Hunt
Dianna was born the day before Easter, April 9. In Hyrum every year Easter was a special day. The Lion's Club put on a community Easter egg hut every year the Saturday before Easter. Mom had gone with my father to the hospital early in the morning. As a result, my older sister drove us to the square. She would have been 16 at the time. We had a good time. There were always races, gunny sack, speed and three-legged. The usually let a rabbit loose for the kids to chase, and the person who caught it got to take it home. As the festivities were ending, my sister announced to us that our baby sister had been born. So we welcomed Dianna into our home, who was five years younger that Charles, the baby born before her. Dianna liked dance and dolls. However she had some skills. We traveled a lot with Dianna in the back of the camper. We moved twice while she was small. I remember one time I was eating cookies and she wanted one. I threw it to her, and she caught it.
She was very small at the time.
