You Capture Easter/Pastels

I adore Spring. The warmth, the newness, the flowers, the greenery. Well, not around these parts so much. But I hear about it in other, more verdant places.

But for now, I will just enjoy where God has placed us. And look for the goodness in the desert.

Some of that goodness is in the form of our church. We found it pretty quickly after we arrived here in El Paso and I am so very thankful for it.
I always say it's the people that make a church special and this one is no exception. Don't get me wrong, I love the messages and being able to serve others. But, I absolutely adore the friendships we have made in our wonderful little church.

We celebrated Easter Sunday with an awesome message, a delicious potluck dinner, and an amusing egg hunt.
It is funny to see the kids hunting eggs on gravel and a playground because we don't have any grass or real tress to hide the eggs properly.

But the kids had fun, nonetheless.

After church, we searched for a place to go and let the kids hang out and hunt eggs again.
We found one of the only green spots in the town I think.

The boys were so thrilled with the soft grass, they wanted to play in it all day.
Or at least take a nap.

I can't say I blame them.
When you find grass around here, it's best to take advantage of it.

And since I am linking up with You Capture this week for Easter/Pastel here are a couple of Pastel shots, too.

Come over and join us next week at You Capture.


The theme will be Chocolate.


  1. Visiting from you capture. Looks like you guys had a fun day! It certainly makes me appreciate the greenery we have around here.

  2. We live in Alamogordo for several years - it's about 80 miles form El Paso so I understand how you long for greenery and flowers. I'm glad you found some though because the pictures you captured were fun and beautiful and priceless. Great post!
