O'Doodles Toy Store Easter Egg Hunt {Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia}

Working together.
Isn't that the best way to live?



A few weeks ago, Fran O'Donnell of O'Doodles Toy Store in Philadelphia asked if I would shoot their Easter Egg Hunt.



What an honor.



It was a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.



The children were lovely.


Spending time with children always makes me thankful.


I look at things differently.


I live more joyfully.




I smile more.



Children are full of magic and happiness.


Spend time with a child today.


Be changed.
We would love for you to link your Tuesday with us today at Communal Global!

I spend alot of time with children. I so enjoyed my time as a preschool teacher, 17 years, and now I teach children a class called Miss Diana's Music In Motion! There are no people like small people! What treasures! I love your first picture in this post Becky... the little one looking right into your lens~ so precious!

As always, the pictures speak for themselves.

But oh yes... kids. Love 'em. So happy I have the job I have. I get my 'kid fix' five days a week.

The pictures are lovely and you are so right. Yesterday L was coloring on my bed and I went in there and just watched her...stared at her in amazement, and then listened to her little voice have a conversation with me like an adult.

There is something about seeing thru the eyes of a babe isn't there? It seriously makes this Momma smile a lot.

All the cute little faces...I miss that! I love the look of apprehension on the little one with the green sweater and the look on his mom's face...you can almost hear her encouraging words.

My heart aches at these pictures. Such sweet faces, hopeful, determined, competitive, wondering, gleeful... ugh, it's almost too much. I can't wait for Easter.
