Sepia Saturday

Sepia Saturday Header - 323

When I saw these boys playing marbles, I figured I could find some photos of the Easter Egg Roll at the White House and I’d be close enough to the theme and the holiday spirit.

    Great photos. Do they still have such events at the White House these days?

    What a perfect match for this week’s prompt – combining “Sepia Saturday” and Easter. Marbles roll, and so do eggs. Spot on! 🙂

    You’ve reminded me of the egg-rolling we did as a child in the fifties. It’s not so popular these days.

    Did you read about the disgraceful behavior at the Pez company Easter egg hunt? The adults that stormed the field in pursuit of candy while knocking over children in their way? Oh to be able to just smack them upside the head, just once. If they’d seen that boy with that beautiful basket I’m sure one of them would have snatched it from him.
