Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I'm joining back in with Scavenger Hunt Sunday after taking a couple of weeks off to get school going around here.  It's going...

This week's photo scavenger hunt items were:
  1. Forest
  2. Morning light
  3. Touch
  4. Newspaper
  5. Coffee or tea

I found the sun setting behind the edge of our bit of forest at the back of our yard...

Morning Light

I captured the morning light through the trees along a road...


I was able to touch a dove this week!  OK, so it wasn't that kind of dove, but this kind...

the kind you can find inside a sand dollar.  I found a near-perfect sand dollar in a parking lot and let the kids break it open to see the "doves."  This was my first time seeing such a perfect "dove" from a sand dollar, and it was the only one in the sand dollar that looked this good.  Pretty cool, huh? (Click on the photos to enlarge them.)

Coffee or Tea

I drink unsweetened iced tea year round, but that's rather uninteresting.  However, if you asked me, "Do you like coffee?" I would have to say no...unless, of course, there is lots of chocolate and possibly whipped cream involved.

November 2010, when Jason and I found coffee with lots of chocolate and whipped cream while on a date.


I think it's safe to say that I rarely like the way a photo of me turns out.  Some are definitely worse than others...but, as a whole, I could do without ever having my picture taken except for the fact that my children would never have any pictures of me years from now.  Well, before I even saw how this recent family photo turned out, it was in the local newspaper last month:

The article that ran with the photo announced a parenting seminar my husband was leading at our church. Grace (6) was goofing off, and had most of us smiling.  Robert (15) managed to resist her silliness.

Fun family photo, Grace is the kicker and turned out so well. I also love your morning light, so fresh and brings hope of a new day.

I love the doves! I knew there were doves shapes inside a sand dollar, but I've never broken one open to see! Also, love the newspaper shot!
