on saturday, not only was it nani's 7th birthday (can she really be that old?), but it was the annual hazeldale ward easter egg hunt. we have been doing this every year for the last 6 years and without fail it was always raining and freezing cold, with the exception of our first year.
i kept checking the weather forecast daily last week. it said rain and showers every day, except saturday it said 0% chance of rain! i still was not convinced! living in oregon, you tend to not put much weight on the weather forecast.
but, thankfully, this time the weather forecast was right! the day dawned sunny and clear. we had a great time finding eggs with the girls.
of course, i was armed with my camera and very excited to get some more practice using it, as i am still trying to figure it out.
and they're off...
what are those in there?
nani must have seen a very good egg! look at her go!
one of my favorites of the day! looks like kawena got the hang of this egg hunting thing!
"you can get two more!" i guess mitch wanted to make sure she knew her limit!
as soon as all of her eggs were found, lala made a beeline to the trampoline:
and spent almost the rest of the time on that thing! this girl loves a thrill!
kawena was in the mood for a little peek-a-boo:
as we were leaving nani decided to try out the trampoline, too! (i thought this was a pretty cool shot! i love the silhouette of the tree branches against the sky.) look at that, not a cloud in the sky!
and, because i L.O.V.E. close-ups... i saved my favorites for last...
