All kinds of budding growth happening in our backyard as spring transitions into summer

Tags: , , , ,


We were thankful to have nice weather for Easter again this year. Our day was full with egg dyeing, eating, hunting for eggs and chasing bubbles. Lots of family love to celebrate 🙂

First, the eggs. Careful!

This pretty much sums it up. My kids: crazies. Cousin Cora: cool, calm, collected.

Who doesn’t love chasing big bubbles outside?

Luca did a great job helping his cousin find the bubbles

Time for Easter baskets!

And of course, the egg hunt

“I found one!”

Watch out!

We tried to get the obligatory ‘cousins on a swing’ picture. As you can see, my kids were perfectly behaved the entire time.

And we ALMOST got a perfect family picture. I guess when you’re two years old the rules don’t apply to you.

Auntie Libby and Cousin Cora had better success with their photo shoot

Photo bomb!

Baby Bartel, soon to join the family in the outside world, enjoyed her Easter too


Take us out, Cora. Power to the flower y’all.
