Easter Eggs

This is posted a bit late, but better late than never!
Easter was really late this year; it fell on April 24. We were going to go to St. Louis, but then gas prices skyrocketed to over $4 a gallon, and so we decided to stay put and put in a patio instead. Then, a big surprise, grandma and papa Staude decided to come and visit us for the holiday!
Here the kids are working on their Easter eggs a few days before Easter Sunday. We tried a new kind of dye kit this year that put a metallic shine on the eggs using colored foil and tacky glue. The overall effect wasn't that dazzling however . . . I think regular dye works the best. But we still had a blast. Although it was the first year ever, where Gabe did one egg and then wandered off, too bored to finish. Sniffle!
