Easter Eggs

Claire and I spent the morning dyeing Easter eggs. She's never done it before, and she took the job very seriously. Its also been a long time since I've done it, so it was really fun for both of us. We didn't do anything fancy, just drew a few designs with crayons before dunking them. I used a white crayon, and it was really fun to watch Claire as she saw the design come through after dyeing them, even though you couldn't see it before hand ("But MOM. You can't see white crayon on a white egg!). Now we're all set for tomorrow. Claire got her hand made Easter basket in the mail yesterday from my mom, and tomorrow our plan is, if it stays somewhat nice outside, to do another hike like we did last weekend. Maybe hide a few eggs in the woods for Claire.

The rest of today should be nice and quiet. Mike is off hiking up a mountain in order to ski down it, so its just Claire and I. He and a group of guys are going to Mount Washington, and in specific, Tuckerman Ravine. We were looking at the website yesterday, and the avalanche advisory was 'very high'. I'm glad to see its lower today. Honestly, it sounds very exciting, and I'm sure he will have a great time.

Jim was just telling me about Mike's adventures.
That husband of yours sure is a crazy guy!
Happy Easter!
