bye bye easter

{our eggs turned just as pretty as last year}




{after the egg hunt: wet note cards, wet eggs - blue eggs dued with blueberry, yellow with onion}

great food, great friends, and a welcomed change of scenery. we did our egg hunt in pouring rain. the girls didn't seem to notice; they were too busy solving the riddles that would take them to the next egg, crawling under stairs, tripping in the mud, happy and eager and probably already knowing that there would be a candy filled easter egg at the end of the hunt.

but when you're as tiny as this little fella, you're happy with an egg filled with raisins, cookies and strawberrys.
now i'm actually looking forward to the routine that school provides to our chaotic family life. some people struggle to get out of routine, we struggle to obtain it. i'll miss the sleeping in, though..

The potatoes and asparagus look delicious. Your eggs turned out beautiful.

Dine egg var visst litt mer naturlige enn mine ang fargestoffer... ser ut som de øverste også er farget med løk, kanskje? Utrolig fine! Blir minnet på hvordan fargene fra naturen glir inn, gir oss harmoni og faller vakkert for øyet.

De kunstige fargene blir lett "for mye" og kvalmende, både i munnen og for øyet!

Å farge påskeegg har vi fortsatt til gode.. Løkfarging har jeg derimot erfaring med, men jeg har farget ull. Det blir også bra, forresten..

Vel overstått påske (jeg kjenner meg igjen rutinehjelpen..).

I love the blue/purple colour that the blueberries gave the eggs.

Beautiful eggs! I love the way that the blueberry ones came out.

My adult brother lives with us, and is obsessed with trying to dye eggs naturally. We always get brownish mottled eggs. We tried with thawed blueberries, but the color was not as intense as yours. Feel free to share any tips next year :)
