Yesterday’s post it was formal portraits. Today it’s candids. Capturing the day with a few casual images.
A sunny Easter afternoon. We went for a walk around the neighborhood.
Michael and Jack had Airedale duty. Anna carried Charlie.
When we got back to the house the children hunted for hidden eggs in the backyard. Some of the eggs opened with a fortune cookie message inside ” A special day with Charlie.” “You pick what’s for supper” “You pick the family movie” “One day of no chores” “Two hours of Ipad time” and some eggs had dollar bills, quarters or dimes.
Wagon full is Wagonful. I looked it up.
Grove Street near Bleecker in the West Village, New York City. I hope they add some eggs.

My friend Ginny planted this tree in my backyard as a memorial to my parents. When Spring comes, despite the low temps tonight, the buds cluster and bloom all along the branches.
It is a most beautiful tree.
Soon the heart shaped leaves will appear.
First the rotated version.
Looks like the beach instead of the Pittsburgh Greenway Parking Lot.
and the original – with a bit of a blur on the PA license plate so no one is identifled
After breakfast in Ohio. The hope of an imminent Spring.
Thought the tulips would help counteract the snowy landscape this morning.
A single petal fell off and froze quickly.
Spring is a welcome season.
Especially after the long hard winter months.
I found it difficult to make my entry unique
so am just going with the theme in general- green shoots, blossoms and leaves and the old apple tree’s flowers.
Baseball is Spring –
Baseballs at the High School game.
Apple blossoms on my tree in the backyard
Full leaf trees and the red bud blooming.
New shoots push up through the old leaves and dirt
Outdoors without coats on deck in Ohio, after swinging on the swings.
Peeps® on top –

The doughnut shop was connected to a gas station.
Photographed in Rockford Illinois in a motel parking lot as the sun was going down. It had snowed the day before! Did not eat them.
