Dyeing Easter Eggs

Well it’s been a while since I posted any family photos, so here we go. In preparation for Easter, we spent some time this evening dyeing eggs. This is something that Patrick has done before, but not William. He loved it. I had all the lights off and was just relying on the light coming…
