Popsicles

I am once again joining the Crazy Days of Summer Friday photo challenge.  This weeks theme is refreshing.  What is more refreshing than sitting around on a warm (we don't have hot yet) summer day eating popsicles?
Apparently wandering around aimlessly while eating popsicles!  The cooperation to sit for some photos in return for bribery of a popsicle did not last as long as the popsicle.  My dream of capturing some image that looked like a '70's Kool-Aid commercial went out the window.  Still snapped away as they wandered.  The one below of SnapDragon is my favorite from the batch.
Crazy, beautiful, and dirty kids!  Definitely a foretaste of my "Crazy Days of Summer!"  Go check out some other "Refreshing" photos!

Cute your kids. And you did a good shot with all of them. Can you imagine, my tot does not like ice cream or popsicles? For me it's hard to understand. ;-)

Great pictures! I used to buy those pops in bulk when my kids were little. Sure sign of summer.

For some reason those pesky kids just don't seem to care too much for the whole "vision" thing? I know mine don't...
But I liked the photos! They've got character!

I love your pictures! That first one is so pretty, but I am a huge fan of how the colors POP in the second one.

and you got that right - popsicles are TOTALLY refreshing on a hot summer day!

Love these photos. I really really like the processing on the first one and the exposure on the second looks perfect to me. Wish I could do that. Love how his skin looks so soft. The bokeh background - gorgeous. All really nice!

Cute kids? Popsicles on a warm summer day? It doesn't get any sweeter than this!
Thanks so much for joining Alicia and I for the Crazy Days of Summer photo challenge again this week. I can't wait to see what you'll come up with for next week's theme: WATER. :)

I love popsicle pictures!
But, yours do not seem to get as messy as this house does!!!!!

Anna said...

Mmm, yum! Those look like Otter Pops which were stocked by the case load in our house growing up. :)

Beautiful pics, I especially love the sunshine glimmering in the last one.
