The neighborhood egg hunt

Our neighbors, Mary and John, graciously hosted a Saturday morning egg hunt for the kids.  It was lots of fun.  Zoey was thrilled to be wearing a dress.  As I look at these photos now, I can't believe how much more color has arrived in one week.  Easter brought the Spring this year and life is coming back.  We all feel stronger and thankful for rebirth.

Pennies and jelly beans were a fun find in the eggs.  Later, Zoey had me help her count her money.  She had dumped it all together with plastic coins and pesos.  She could not understand why "all" the money could not help her buy a changing table for her baby.
Dave has been looking for some ink on this blog.  He really is a very present dad and a great one at that.  I thought this was a great photo of dave and a funny one of Zoey.  We will most likely find the same expression on Zoey's face in a photo with her dad in 10 years.
