Scavenger Hunt Sunday 08.19.12

Time again for Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  I'm a little late getting this up.  I usually like to have my photos done and posted on Saturday night.  But we've been doing lots of running this week, trying to squeeze in as much fun as possible before school starts on the 29th.  So I didn't even take two photos until today.  I needed Keira's help with one and we just couldn't seem to find a good time to make it work until today.
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Anyway, on to this week's hunt ...

One of the fun things we did this week was hike through this forest.  The kids had fun exploring and were wiped out when we got home.

{morning light}
This sunflower looked so pretty in the morning light.

My kids aren't afraid to touch most anything ... including this little garter snake.  You can tell by that filthy hand that Nick was having a good time.  :)

My name just happened to appear in this week's newspaper.  How convenient is that?!  :)  The results from the local farm show photo contest were published.  I got a blue ribbon in the "one person B&W" category for this photo of my niece.  (One of the photos I took today since a friend was bringing the newspaper to church this morning.)

{coffee or tea}
Gotta love a cold glass of iced tea on a hot summer day while sitting by the pool.  (The other photo I took today with Keira's help.  She was my official "ice cube dropper".  :))

That's it for me.  Doug and I are going to head out this afternoon for a bike ride with or without the kids.  Haven't decided yet.  :)

Be sure to head over to Ashley's to see more great Scavenger Hunt photos.  And if you'd like to play along for next week, the items to search for are:

  1. School
  2. Rule of Thirds
  3. Side Profile
  4. Small
  5. Motion

Have a great week!  We'll be squeezing in some more fun this week, so I probably won't be around much.  But thank you for stopping by!

Love the morning shot and the ice tea - and even though I loath snakes - that one is pretty cool too. Great set.

That little snake gives me the shivers...brrr. Congrats on the blue ribbon! The Iced Tea photo is my favorite, Keira is a very good ice cube dropper :-)

Great Touch shot, I'm not really afraid of snakes and this one looks pretty harmless.
Loved your Coffee/Tea shot.
Congrats on the Newspaper article.

Fantastic set!!!!!!! You know I'm loving that splash (it is definitely a 2 person job to do those) and CONGRATS on the newspaper- SO COOL!
