Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Last weekend I went away for a few days with friend from my photography club.  We shared a house on the beach and had a fantastic time.  It was a great way to spend this last week's hunt.

Most of my photos from the weekend were blue, lots of beautiful blue, but I found a few bits of yellow.  This was one of my favorites.

Ancient or Antique:
The two lighthouses we visited were built in the mid 1800's, pretty much as old as things get out here on the west coast.  I don't feel my photos did the beauty of the place justice, but luckily I was with some amazing landscape photographers who did.  It was a great learning experience for me.

I have so many splash pictures, it was hard to choose.  This is the Pacific Ocean on a calm, peaceful day. 

In the Sun:
I was so happy to spend the weekend in the sun even though I wasn't hopeful when I left my house during the rain.  The weather was absolutely fantastic and beauty was all around me.  A perfect way to waste time.

Something that Makes Me Smile:
They dressed up for my Sister-In-Law's Birthday tea.  Some of them are better skilled at it than others, but always, always seeing my children happy and together makes me smile.  We leave Wednesday to bring home our new daughter and two weeks after that we will all be together as a family.  No matter what they are wearing THAT will makes us all smile big (between bouts of jetlag.)  If you want to follow our trip to China, I do plan to blog about it on my family blog, Joyful Mama Gives In, depending on internet and time.

See you in a few months, I hope!

I wish you Godspeed and safety as you leave to get your new daughter. As always, your photos of the children are a joy to see. I can't wait to see the new member once you are settled! Hugs to you!

Love the pictures as always.

Fun, I especially like your "in the sun".

Have a great time in China! I found that they had Blogger and Facebook blocked when I was there and couldn't use them. Hopefully you'll have better luck.
