I’m skipping the “Wordless Wednesday” this week because, well…I have a ton of pictures to share and I have too much words to say to go along with them.  So instead of a Wordless Wednesday, I’m just having myself an Easter Picture Dump.

This was the first time I really got to practice with my new 5omm camera lens.  I apologize if some of the shots focus on the chin, or ear, and not the subjects eyes (as it should be), but I have to say, I was (am) pretty tickled with the final results.  None of the pictures have been edited besides some cropping or resizing.  Perhaps with some more practice, I might actually get my moneys worth out of this fancy DSLR camera!

The Day Before

And they’re off!  My Aunt and Uncle hosted a fabulous Easter egg hunt.  The kids scored.  Huge.

Love my Gabriel

My mom and fabulous cousin, Lisa

Haircut, Bob?

Easter Morning

The boys received HUGE baskets full of fun stuff.  The Easter bunny had a good time filling them.

No idea why…but I just love this picture.

A big hit in the baskets was these “Color Blanks.”  Really fun little characters that the kids could decorate as they saw fit.  They are having so much fun with them.

The Easter Party

Sugar high?

I am SO in love with this picture of Anthony.  It was nice to get a real smile and not an “I’m too cool for this crap” smile.

My nephew got in on the egg hunt action this year.  He’s usually too cool to participate.

Look who got to come and play!?  Penelope just finished her 2nd round of chemo and was a bit tired, but such a fun little trooper.  We were so happy to get to spend the holiday with her.

(most) all the cousins!

So, how was your Easter?  This year it was really fabulous around here. Beautiful weather, amazing family and delicious food (thanks Mom!).  If you are posting Easter pictures of your own, feel free to link up on the Monday Mojo link this week that is dedicated to all the colorful Easter pictures.
