Easter 2013

Despite this year's early Easter, yesterday we were greeted with azaleas in full bloom at Joe's parents' home.
Me: Hugging my sweetie in a sea of pink blossoms: yes, please!

Kids: Staying in dressy clothes to pose for pictures for Mom: no, thank you.
(So sorry, little bunnies, but there is no escaping this tradition.)

Mary Ashley, Emma, Christian and Carson with cousins Reese and Hollis.
Give me just a few smiles, and you will be free to enjoy the afternoon with your cousins.
