Scavenger Hunt Sunday 07.08.12 - Hospital Style

Hello and welcome to another Scavenge Hunt Sunday!  This one is brought to you hospital style.  Alex and I have been here at Children's Hospital since Saturday, June 30, but somehow I managed to get all the prompts this week.  If you are interested in reading about why we are here, check out these posts ...

If not, no biggie ... just keep scrolling for this week's finds.
Ramblings and Photos
If you are going to be stuck in the hospital on July 4th, you may as well get the best view in the house for the fireworks.  This was taken from our hospital room window.  We had an awesome view of the fireworks!

I got a chance to play with night photography after being awakened one early morning with IV machines beeping and beeping.  (That actually happens quite frequently. :))  I couldn't get back to sleep and noticed the full moon setting over the city.  So like the crazy photo fanatic that I am, I played around for a while instead of trying to get back to sleep.  This was the view from our 6th story window.
Disclosure:  I couldn't get the moon and the city lights exposed properly together, so I made a composite with two separate photos.

The hospital has artwork everywhere.  Very cool artwork.  Including this Stanley Cup made out of paper and beads.

Doug bought Alex this tiny train with these tiny wheels today at the hospital gift shop.  He's getting a little spoiled with new toys.  But he's been stuck here for eight days and we don't know when we will get to go home, so he should be spoiled.  :)

During our walk today we passed the Lemieux Sibling Center on the first floor, just down from the gift shop.  This is what the wall looks like on the outside.  Very cool.

Be sure to head over to Sarah's for more great Scavenger Hunt finds.  And if you'd like to play along for next Sunday, here's what to look for:

  1. Water
  2. Petal
  3. Fresh
  4. Eight
  5. Calm
Have a great week!  Here's hoping we are home for next week's hunt!

You are like super mom! I can't believe that you were able to get this post together being in the hospital all week. Love the moon shot. I really do need to give the double exposure more time. It's such a cool effect to put together what our eyes can see but the lens can't comprehend.

These are awesome. I just read all the post. So sorry! What is going on now is a complication from the surgery??
