Scavenger Hunt Sunday 07.06.14

Hello!  I hope you had a wonderful Independence Day!  We got to see fireworks right from our backyard on July 4th, which was good because I didn't feel like going to see the local fireworks and fighting traffic.  :)  Then last night a family in our neighborhood - who hosts a fireworks display every year - hosted their display.  A friend invited us to their house which gave us front row seats.  It was pretty cool!  And we didn't have to fight traffic.  :)  (Knowing that we were going to see fireworks on Saturday night also contributed to my decision to stay home on Friday).  Our poor dog was so scared though.  Both Friday night and Saturday night.  She even followed me into the bathroom once on Friday night - that's how scared she was.  She didn't want to let me out of her sight.

Anyway, here are this week's Scavenger Hunt finds ...

One of the prompts for the Photo a Day challenge I am participating in was "red + white" so Keira helped me out with it.  She doesn't usually wear red lipstick.  And she's not really this pale.  I lightened her face up a bit in PSE.  I did not, however, do anything to her eyes but sharpen them a bit.  I may be a bit biased, but I think she's gorgeous.  :)

Okay, so it isn't pure white, but it is whitish.  I was so excited to find a Monarch egg the other day during a walk!  We try to raise Monarch butterflies every summer so I'm hoping this is the first of many butterflies to be joining us this year!

I took the boys swimming at a friend's house again this week and took along Doug's little underwater camera.  Lauryn, my friend's daughter, was excited to pose for me under the blue water.  :)

My kids love to play with glow sticks.  We found these multi-colored ones at the dollar store.  Keira and Alex were sitting by our camp fire during the neighbor's fireworks on Friday night and were waving them around - making their own fireworks.

We bought a HUGE package of sparklers at Sam's Club this week, so I expect we'll be doing a lot of this with them this summer.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go visit Ashley, the host of SHS, and say hello!

I love the one of Keira! I didn't see fireworks on the 4th because my friend and I decided to go to another friend's house to play games. I was okay with it because I thought I'd see them Saturday... but those ones ended up starting way early and we got there just as they were finishing. Sigh.

Sounds like you had a great 4th! Love the sparker star!!

I didn't know you could buy fireworks (sparklers) at the store. We can only get ours at 3 day weekend booths! Your daughter is amazingly beautiful.

Excellent photo set. I don't think any of our grand kid sparklers would have lasted long enough to create the star image. Really nicely done.

Beautiful shot of your daughter. The sparkler star is pretty cool. Our sparklers didn't last long, either. Guess we should have got them from Sam's!
