Wide Angle Lens

I recently purchased a wide angle lens so that I could start doing some real estate photography (I was approached by a realtor I know and am excited about branching out).  I probably won't use it much for portraits, but it is fun to use around the house for lifestyle type images.  I was playing with it for a bit this week.

Easter was so gorgeous this year, perfect weather.  The only sad part was that we didn't get to share it with the Flores family.  That is the one holiday we have spent together since having kids, and we always look forward to it.  We missed them.  We enjoyed church (well I taught Everett's class so I wasn't in the service, but I was there).  We came home and let the kids have their Easter baskets, then had an egg hunt at home.  I mostly had dollars in the eggs, so that was fun for the big kids :)  We went over to my mom's for the afternoon and enjoyed our traditional Easter food.  Marlene was there as well, and my brother and Beth and Danielle, but I forgot to get my camera back out, oops.  It was such a nice enjoyable day :)

We took this family picture ourselves, with the tripod I just got :)

Easter baskets, which I had kept them from seeing by covering with bathroom towels.  I'm high class ;)

Hunting for money filled eggs was fun for them :)

Easter Egg Hunt at Grandma's

For those of you who read my blog, but for some reason do not know... my sweet mother in law Marlene has breast cancer.  She will be undergoing a double mastectomy this week.  We are praying there is no cancer in her lymph nodes, and that she will be healed. She will have to have chemo once she is recovered from the surgery, so she has a while ahead of her that she will not feel well.  That being said, we were thankful to be able to have our annual Easter egg hunt and breakfast at her house the day before Easter with the cousins.  It was a nice morning, and the kids love it :)  We appreciate your prayers for Marlene!  <3 br="">

Grandma does the Resurrection eggs with them while the adults hide the eggs.

And, they're off!!! lol
