haylee's first egg hunt

We had a wonderful time with our church's annual egg hunt. It was Haylee's first egg hunt. It was a cooler day with a sprinkle of rain, but Haylee's first egg hunt was a fun day. My brother dressed up as the Easter bunny. Haylee did not recognize him and was still very scared of the bunny. After she calmed down, she enjoyed the egg hunt. She loved the different colored eggs. She brought her basket full of eggs home and played with them all day. Haylee even hid them around the living room to find them later. She enjoyed putting them in the basket and then spilling them out to the floor. Haylee even loved to bang them on the floor.

Haylee has enjoyed the plastic eggs, but I have been wanting to dye eggs with her. She is not great with paint. She loves to put her hands in her mouth. The paint would be in her mouth within seconds. I saw a FB post and pintrest post with natural coloring eggs. I thought that might be fun! I don't think we have time to make natural egg colors, but it's a great idea! Here are the posts if you're interested for your little ones: http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/naturally-dyed-easter-eggs/ or ones with kool aid http://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/kool-aid-tie-dye-easter-eggs-143963.aspx?cm_mmc=Social-_-Pinterest-_-Ahalogy-_-143963(2)

I have her Easter basket ready! It's taken me a couple of weeks to come up with what to put in a baby's basket. Did you have that issue? She can't have candy, or boiled eggs yet. I decided to look at pintrest! We got her 6 spring time books, we love having storytime with Haylee and hope she learns to love reading. A mickey/Minnie mouse play house dvd, I love Disney and we do not have cable. I'm glad to get it on dvd! More bows! We have so many bows for her, so why not a collection! A Minnie mouse sippy cup with soft spout! She hasn't started on a sippy cup, but after her 9 month checkup she will be able to have her milk and juice in one! We're very excited for her. Little Mermaid bath toys, spoons and more toy eggs!

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm

This turned out to be a great day for the Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm! It was cloudy but warm and perfect for picking strawberries. It was calling for rain but we didn't see a drop thankfully. This was an early Mother's Day trip for us. We have come to this farm every year to pick strawberries and i'm so glad we had another great trip! 
Haylee told all of her friends she was going to the Strawberry patch and she was so excited! It's the perfect date or family outing. It's for everyone! Picking strawberries in the patch and having a homemade ice cream is a great way to spend quality time together. Hope you enjoy photos from our visit to Patterson Farm!
