{Gorgeous Saturday Easter Egg Hunt}

I think we had the best day for an Easter Egg hunt since we moved to the Northwest 7+ years ago. Saturday was an abnormally warm and sunny day....and it was fabulous!!!
We headed down to the neighborhood park where a local church was hosting a huge event!  They had 10,000 eggs!!   The kids were split into 3 different age groups and of course I ended up with 3 kids in all different groups...so most of the pictures are of Ry because I stayed with him.  Luckily we had Grandma Judy there to help and enjoy too!  She came to the rescue this week in case the baby needed to come early and we loved having her here!
 
Waiting for the whistle!  We were extra early....can't be even 2 minutes late to an Easter Egg hunt or there won't be anything left!  And notice the size of my kids' baskets.  I like small.  Small means less eggs, less candy, less sugar.  I won't indulge them with the 2 gallon baskets that some of the kids brought (and there were plenty of eggs to go around and fill up those baskets too!).  So I told them they could fill them as full as possible and that was it. And yah, they complained about the size compared to the 'other kids'...just like they do every year. 
 It was a little tough holding Ry back from the field of eggs in front of him!
 He was a pro this year!
 We stopped mid-way through the field for a snack or two.

 The church recycles the plastic eggs...so here they are after they emptied out their candy. 

Such a fun activity, and we were back home less than 30 minutes from when we left.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
