Easter 2017

Easter 2017
Welp, I'm a little late to the Easter posting party, but hey- I'd rather it be late that not at all.  We decided to dye eggs in the backyard a couple nights before Easter morning and it was the perfect weather and perfect setting.  We got messy, enjoyed the cool breeze, and the girls took trampoline breaks.  I always wonder if this will be the last year Hope enjoys our holiday traditions because of how old she's getting, so it makes my heart especially warm to see her loving these small things still.

(Hope's face in this one. 😂 )

We spent Easter morning doing our own thing and then headed back to our hometown to visit with both mine and Johnny's parents.  It was rainy and dreary that day, so I opted to be a lazy lady and not bring my DSLR.  This is when I thank the universe for decent iPhone cameras.  Katie, Katie... you should know better by now...

Johnny and I still exchange Easter baskets.  It's one of my favorite traditions.  I got him a bunch of fancy-person candy and a basketball.  You've gotta have the fun things in there, right?

We had a wonderful day all together and I hope that baseball bat stays in the tree for years to come. (It's been there since I can remember.)  Also, Hope is wearing one of my shrunken dresses in the photo above-- WHAT?!

I adore my beautiful family and I'm so thankful for our traditions.  xo.


  1. These pictures are so sweet! I love your family traditions. We do a golden egg every year (it has money in it) and even though two of my daughters are grown, we still do Easter baskets and a hunt :)
