Delayed Easter Post

My blogging just isn't up to speed these days, so this post is a few days late. This past weekend we traveled to Pahrump, Nevada to visit with my parents. The drive is about 6 hours, but thanks to built-in DVD players, the girls were the best of travelers. They were really excited to see their grandparents and especially to receive Easter baskets loaded with goodies from them.

My sister came up for a visit as well, so it was nice to have a family gathering of sorts. She brought with her wristlet corsages that her daughter, Cousin Lisa, had made for the girls. They were beautiful and the girls really felt special.

Dad made a quick trip to the local big box store and picked up some confetti eggs for the girls to hunt. He hid them around the trailer and yard and the girls had a great time finding them. As usual, Pearl raced to find the eggs, while Chloe would take her time and examine each one as she carefully placed it in her basket. Fortunately, Pearl is such a sweet big sister that she shared all her extra eggs with Chloe, until they had exactly the same amount. I love that Pearl is quick and smart, but I also love that Chloe is careful and deliberate. They really do compliment each other. I think this was one of my favorite Easters ever.

Great pictures. Your colors just pop.

What lovely parents you have. Your Mom is so elegant looking. How wonderful that your girls get nice and spoiled by their grandparents. It's as it should be.

Your pictures and blogs, as always, are just beautiful and heartfelt. I feel for you regarding Pearl's birthday, as Donna was left at about 2 -2.5 weeks old. She had a note pinned to her, stating when her birthday was, and that is all I have to give her from her birth parents. Pearl is so fortunate to be guided to you and your husband as parents. You truly are an example to me. I hope she had a happy day and has a wonderful party. By the way, do you make all the girls clothes? They look wonderful and I am somewhat envious that I never took my mother's lead and learned to sew. Another talent to pass on to your girls. I really enjoy reading your blog and thanks for reading my post.

I LOVE your photography style. It just amazes me. I love how the colors are intense but not overpowering. LOVE it.

The picture of the girls hugging is my sweet.
