{Easter 2015}

With such a busy spring, we barely squeezed in our traditional egg dyeing before Easter Sunday. I boil a ton of eggs every year...about 4 dozen; so they can each dye 12.  I consider it cheaper than most art projects (so I don't mind throwing half of them out a week or so later. Ha!)

 We attended two Easter egg hunts on the Saturday prior to Easter. The first one was held in our neighborhood and put on by the HOA.  It's always a huge turn out and so much fun.  

 And then we headed up to North Bend to celebrate Finley's birthday while tacking on another Easter egg hunt in their gorgeous back yard.  

And then it was a dash home to get ready for Easter Sunday and prep the traditional yarn maze to each basket.  

 The kids were pretty pumped to find new books and treats.  

I actually didn't take pictures of them in their Easter clothes until the following Sunday....just too busy on Easter to get to it!  

We had a low key dinner on fancy plates.  We were just by ourselves this year and really, really enjoyed it!

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.
