Scavenger Hunt Sunday: 9-2-12

Well, it's been a while, but I got the photo scavenger hunt done this week! I've been taking lots of photos the last couple of days so I figured I should be able to fill the prompts this week! I also followed the tutorial Ashley linked this week in "Tutorial Tuesday" on how to make a watermark, so now my photos have a watermark! Here are my shots for the week.

Here is my busy 2-year-old climbing the rope ladder at the park earlier this week. He got all the way to the top and then needed help getting down.

Kids don't need fancy toys to have fun! My kids love playing with old empty containers in the water, sand, etc.

Any of the 5 Senses
We went to the zoo yesterday and finally got back to the butterfly garden. We were there early in the summer, but my camera had no battery... grrr. Anyway, I had a great time taking photos of the butterflies yesterday. The butterfly garden is very much a sensory experience with all of the beautiful butterflies, flowers and instrumental music playing.

One of the other special exhibits at the zoo are these animatronic dinosaurs.  I don't know if they are really on batteries, but they get the power to move from somewhere!

Today we went to the Renaissance Festival as a family.  Everyone but me went on this swinging boat ( I sometimes get a little nauseated on swings and being pregnant I didn't want to push it!).  Anyway, this was half of the boat, the half with my daughters in it- they LOVED it!


  1. Lovely shots! I love the one of your daughters in the swing boat. They look so thrilled!

  2. Great shots. They are all lovely!

  3. Great shots. Really love that 5 senses shot. Nicely done! Have a wonderful week.

  4. So true about kids and "toys" isn't it? My mom used to say that my favourite toy ever was a cardboard box. Love your interpretation for Toys and Senses. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Look your little guy go! The expression is priceless. Love 5 senses too - stunning!

  6. HALF shot is adorable! cute girls with painted faces. Hope you took a close-up too?
    TOYS & CANDID are priceless. Visiting blogs with pics of kids is touching off my emotional button. Ahhh {sigh!} I remember those days spent with my daughters - they're in their 30's but you never forget those times. So many cute family shots in this week's SHS.

  7. Wonderful set. So hard to pick a favorite with all those adorable shots of your kids. Candid and Half and just darling as can be.
    Also like the Battery shot, my granddaughter is so into Dinosaurs right now, she would have loved to have seen that.

  8. Love them all. Especially that last one!!

  9. Your shot for half is great! How nice that you can put the watermark on your pictures. I'll have to check out that tutorial. Your butterfly is also beautiful.

  10. Looks like a fun week! I especially like your Half photo. The look of glee on your girls' faces is priceless.
