my girls pocking

My family came home with a few more eggs than we went there with = VICTORY!!

There was also an egg hunt for the little ones. My girls are still not very interested in this egg hunt thing. They don’t quite understand it and were slow getting eggs, Uncle Jared had to help out and give them a few hints. Cassidy and Jaci racked up!!

I never realized it, but Dawn and Ray’s backyard is a great place for pictures!! Those trees are lined up perfectly and I had fun just trying to get good pictures of my girls.

Also, here are a few pics of egg dying at our house
