{Easter Weekend}

We dyed our Easter eggs about 5 days in advance of Easter...a big deal since we are always trying to sneak it in on the Saturday before Easter.  Annual pictures documenting the same tradition each year, but it's fun to see how the kids grow and change.  The kids can pretty much run the show now, so they help one another, and I took pictures and tried to avoid any huge spills. They did really well!  We managed about 3 dozen and ended up eating roughly half of them...pretty good!  

The big Easter egg hunt we usually attend was not being sponsored this year :(  ... but even better, we were invited to my niece's birthday party with all the cousins,  and we tacked on an Easter egg hunt in my sister's perfect back yard.  We had unusually warm weather, and we soaked in every second of it.  It's always a blast getting the Dalley cousin's together (we really missed Graham and Claire!).  These kids are great friends and as our schedules get crazier, we have to try just a little harder to get together, and we are sure glad when we do!

 Miles really enjoyed it this year!

 These always-on-the-go babies just sat and mowed through their candy.  They hardly left this spot for a good 20 minutes.  That's the darling birthday girl in the middle!  

Ry unloaded his entire basket and ate his way into a sugar coma.  He was asleep in his booster seat in the car before we backed down the driveway! 

Thanks for the invite Charise & Chris!  We had a blast with everyone!

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 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?

More about me here.
