Easter Fun

This year we headed up to my parents’ for Easter weekend! Our family doesn’t have many resurrection day traditions {except for chocolate pancakes} but it’s always nice to have an excuse to get together and spend some quality time.

Turns out Mark has never dyed eggs before…I know, I couldn’t believe it either, poor kid…so of course we had to rectify that. I myself hadn’t colored eggs in years so it was really fun to be a kid again, drawing with the “magic crayon” and mixing colors.

We tried something new too; by cracking the hard boiled eggs all over and then submerging them in {food safe} dye, we got this…

They made the prettiest deviled eggs!

Speaking of eggs, or egg layers, my parents recently got a couple dozen chicks to add to the farm. Over the years their older hens dwindled in number so it was time to freshen the flock. Aren’t they cute?

Am I the only one that thinks chickens’ ears are really weird?
