A Blurry Morning


The only shot out of the 97 taken that isn't blurry. Not even a great capture! I think I'm going to retire my 50/fixed lense for those moments when the things I'm shooting are holding still.. and maybe invest in the telephoto I've had my eye on...

This morning we went to the Redmond City Easter Egg "Hunt" which was the biggest joke of an egg hunt I've ever seen. They roped the street off in sections by age, dumped a box of plastic candy filled eggs, had a countdown, and the race was on! HUNDREDS of kids ( and parents, some really pushy) rushed into the middle of the street to "hunt" for their eggs. It was insane. And unsafe. Pushing and shoving, scared crying kids... Kael ended up with one egg. One. Raegan got a few more and Morgan lucked out with half a basket full, which she was sweet enough to share with Kael. It was all over and the street clean in less then a minute. It was kind of scary for a minute there because Rae got swallowed by the crowd and I lost her. Luckily she kept close to Morgan who kept close to Davinie, so she wasn't really lost, but she was half a block down by the time I found her. We won't be going again next year.








Luckily, we have the annual Fiero family Easter Bash to go to tomorrow... a REAL hunt!

we know the feeling! We had the same experience last year, and not quite as bad today. but still, very frightening and easy for someone to get hurt!

Kent's was about the same. Only we were stupid and forgot to check that the CF card was in the camera. All those pictures of Ken skipping through the eggs- never were. :-(
