Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I had a lot of fun with this hunt--once I was able to start it on Friday.  Not because my pictures are my best, but because my kids helped me, especially in thinking creatively.  I can get so stuck on an idea that doesn't work, but the boys' ideas are unlimited.  So fun to work with them.  Too bad I waited until Friday to bring them in.  It means we are away on vacation and I'm limited to iPhoto.  Oh well, it is all about the fun, and it was lots of fun.

Music to My Ears:
Not exactly the picture I envisioned, but aside from my children's laughter NOTHING sounds better to my ears than the sound of coke being poured.  I freely admit I am a coke addict.

Hat:
Today at the Narnia exhibit at the science museum, SnapDragon got to try on real, replica chain mail.  I had to take the picture quickly because I was afraid the weight would squash him flat.

Clear:
Nothing is as clear as these baby blues, unless it is the blue sky reflected in them.  Yeah!  Summer might finally be here--or at least for the weekend.

Out of This World:
I think it might be a stretch to say this is out of this world, but I kind of think the sun bursts reflected on the water kind of look like stars in the night sky.  If that won't do how about this replica of the space capsule?
Ummm, I guess this also isn't out of this world since it is fake and here, but I think my kids are out of this world!  I use hip slang like "out of this world" on a daily basis.

Sprinkles:
The boys spent almost 30 minutes trying to throw water and splash to make "sprinkles" for me.  Who would have known that their dessert that night was going to come with real sprinkles?

So these are my hunt items!  I hope next week's really difficult because we'll be out of town again, but away from computers and internet, so it'll be easier to not be able to participate if it seems impossible.  Make sure to check out the other links over at Ramblings and Photos.  It is nothing short of amazing.

I love your (water) sprinkles shot! I didn't have time enough to get a Sprinkles shot in myself.

I also love the sunbursts on the water!

That Clear shot is AWESOME. So crisp and clean and the water detail is perfect. He's a stunner (although, he probably wouldn't appreciate that adjective :))!

Beautiful photos! Number one is my favourite, since I'm a coke-addict too (diet coke that is) ;)

Sarah said...

Awesome photos. I love coke! That clear shot is so great.

Kay Rhodes said...

Your shots are great... I especially like the clear shot. Nothing is more precious than a child's face.

Sara said...

Great shots! I LOVE the clear shot, those eyes are just gorgeous and the little drops of water on his face! It's just amazing! I really love your stars in the water too!

Great photos! :)

I love those baby blue eyes - there's such depth in them. Nice shot!
Also, that reflecting, deep, dark water is mysterious and inviting. Nicely done.

Visiting you from The Scavenger Hunt.

Blessings,
This Good Life

Neat interpretation of your "music to my ears" photo. :) Your "clear" is really neat too!

Wanda said...

It does seem that your children are your inspiration in more ways than one. These photos are all terrific bot the "clear" one is truly special.

BTW, I'm stopping by via FYE.

Okay, the coke shot is such a creative interpretation. Would have never thought of something like that. You are helping me to think outside the box! ~ Love those baby blues!
