My kids were given these crazy little… things by their uncle. They love them.

They aren’t exactly cute. They aren’t exactly ugly.

Their eyes pop out.

I think I’ve felt that way myself once or twice in my life.

Kids-n-Colors

My kids love to color anything and everything. So, when Easter rolls around, we are very busy making brightly colored eggs.

I am very intrigued by religion, rituals and family traditions of all types. For my family, decorating Easter eggs sort of fits a little bit into each of those areas. One of the many great benefits of photographing weddings is that I get to learn so much about the beliefs and ceremonial aspects that make up the foundations of families. I love being a part of that and learning so much about people.

My little ones get very excited when I hard boil some eggs and mix up some food coloring.

Of course, I’m not crazy–I cover everything with plastic and before getting started. They get to decide what colors to put their eggs in.

After a few mintues, we move on to markers. They spent a good part of an evening decorating and having fun with colors.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter, or Sunday, or spring day. Or, just had a wonderful time celebrating whatever it is that makes you happy.
