Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Today I got to go on a nature photowalk (and a great lunch) with 10 people from my photoclub.  I tried to get all the prompts there, but some of it was easier to do at home.

I felt these branches against the sky looked like a pencil drawing...though not by a great artist necessarily.

Huckleberry enjoyed his trip to China, but he enjoys his little sister even more.

 The clover looked very soft; I'd just wished I'd seen it last week.


Sunflower's wavy hair makes a perfect subject for backlighting...if only she knew what smile meant.

We saw lots of different textures during our walk, but the ridged texture in these leaves fascinated us.  But I must be hungry, while I was editing all I could think about was potato chips.

Happy Hunting!

Texture Tuesday

I confess I created this a few weeks ago, so I don't remember which texture I used, but I know it is one of Kim's excellent creations, on soft-light, with a Gaussian blur on the face and arms of my little Sweet Pea.  It just fit this weeks theme so well and I love it so much, I decided to share.  Have a happy Tuesday!

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

This one is ALMOST 5...which means we need to register her for Kindergarten in the next few weeks.  We are hoping she'll be able to go to the school her brothers attended, but they may not have space, so it'll be interesting to see what happens.

Word of the Day:
Ball.  She loves balls and can say the word very clearly.  She'll even wad up a piece of paper and grin and say "Ball!"

SnapDragon was cutting down weeds with his "sickle" when Sweet Pea wanted a turn.  He shared with her very happily...even using his hands to cut a few weeds to show her she was making progress.

When I went behind Sweet Pea to push her, she wiggled in her seat until she could see me still.  I feel safer pushing her swing from the front for now.

Or Crackers?  Either one creates a lot of crumbs.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Well...I took photos today specifically for the hunt, and the card corrupted all the photos.  Not sure why.  I am bummed to lose the pictures from today's Awana Grand Prix, but it certainly is not the end of the world.  After all we have several more Grand Prixs in our future (the kids carve little wooden cars and race them.)  But I did have to go to my archives for today's hunt pictures because today was the only day I took pictures all week.  Rainy, gray days will do that to you.

The little red cherries on her pants match her favorite red swing.


She insisted on posing on the yellow slide. 



From the window of the bus in China as we traveled from Sweet Pea's home for the first 9 months of her life back to the capital city of Jiangxi Province.

I hope you all had happy hunting and no card corruption!
