Scavenger Hunt Sunday

    The photography prompts for this week are
    • Sunset
    • Sweet
    • Hanging around
    • Funny face
    • Space

    This week was our church's VBS, which made for a busy week all around.  However, it also gave me the photos I needed for this week's scavenger hunt!


    Ours is an evening VBS, and we had some gorgeous sunsets at pickup time.

    I couldn't pick just one.


    Well, of course, I have my sweet girl...

    Grace (6 years old)

    and I also have a sweet ten year old.  His birthday was this past week!  It always, always falls during our church's VBS week.  (Poor kid!  Well, not so much this year--his teacher brought cupcakes for the class, with an extra special cupcake for him!  Plus, his class sang "Happy birthday" to him during music, which embarrassed him...but that's OK.) 

    Josiah, the big 10 year old!
    He's also very goofy, in a (usually) sweet way.  See the icing?  He picked that color.  I asked him each time before I added more food coloring if this was the shade of green he wanted.  When it reached this color, he shouted, "Cool!  It's the color of slime!"  That was not what I was going for, but he liked he had slime green cupcakes for his birthday.   

    The birthday boy wanted to eat lunch at Firehouse Subs, which makes for an interesting photo with the little cupcakes and the dalmatian pattern tabletop.  We brought the cupcakes to lunch since VBS would make it a late night.

    Hanging around

    Look who I found hanging around at VBS...

    Funny face

    Each year during our VBS, the boys and girls compete to see who can donate the most money for missions.  If the boys win, Mrs. VBS gets a pie thrown in her face.  If the girls win, Mr. VBS gets a pie thrown in his face.  Guess what?  The girls won!...Which made for a funny face for Mr. VBS.


    Did I mention we had VBS last week?  Well, one night when I was taking shots of the gorgeous sunset, I spotted the moon in the pink sky.  So, that's my space shot!

    Slime green cupcakes sound perfect for a 10 year old boy! Looks like a good time was had by all at VBS. Great set!
