Photoshoot With Makayla

Yesterday afternoon Emily and I went to my mom's house to see my Grandma who was visiting. Soon after she left, Emily took a nap, leaving me with not much to do. So I grabbed my camera and my sister and we headed outside for a few shots before the sun went down. We got some really cute pictures and I got to practice using my camera's Manual setting some more.

Strawberry Festival

There is a huge farm not too far from here where you can pick your own strawberries, among other things, but right now happens to be strawberry season. To kick the season off every year they have a strawberry festival and since we've never been we thought that this year would be a good year to go. So two Saturdays ago we headed out to Ottawa Farms and we went to pickin'! There was tons of stuff to do, but Emily was too small to do any of it. Maybe next year she will be big enough to ride the ponies, bounce on the inflatables and ride the train. But this year she had enough fun picking and eating strawberries! 

Watching the ponies

She knew just what to do!

This is the only way she will eat strawberries - warmed by the sun!

Emily's 2nd Easter

*Warning: This post is extremely picture heavy. That's why it took me so long to post this because OMG I had hundreds of pictures from only two days. 

Well, Emily's second Easter was way more fun than her first. Last year? She didn't even get an Easter basket. Or hunt any eggs. But this year? Oh my. This year made up for all that last year didn't bring. 

On the Saturday before Easter, there was an Easter Egg Hunt for all of the littles at our church.

And then before we knew it, Easter morning had arrived! It was time to see what the Bunny brought.....

And out of all of that stuff, can you guess what she plays with the most? The 12 plastic eggs that I paid ONE WHOLE DOLLAR  for. Of course.

After we got a sugar rush from all of the Reese's Pieces that her daddy gave her, it was time to go to church! We got all dressed up in our Easter clothes. Emily's were the only ones that were new, and that's ok. I think we all looked just adorable!

After church, we went to Denny's parents' house for the rest of the day. Emily and all of her cousins got Easter buckets filled with goodies.

Then we all went outside to dye eggs. Well, all of us except for Emily. She had better things to do.

Then, Emily's Nannie & Pa stopped by, as well as her Nana and Aunt Makayla. And Nannie & Pa had more Easter presents!

Time to hunt!

Emily had a very, very Happy Easter!
