Scavenger Hunt Sunday (or Monday for me!)

I'm baaack!!! I bet you didn't even know I was gone, did you? Yep, for four days I have been away from my computer and enjoying some much need family time up at a friends cottage to celebrate the Labour Day weekend and end of summer...I took a million photos, did a lot of thinking and got to spend time with my favorite people (my boys!).  Look out for more about my weekend later.

For now...welcome to my first ever Scavenger Hunt Sunday (or Monday for me, since we got home late last night). I had tons of fun with this challenge and will defintely be participating again! Here are my finds...oh, and they are all done in manual mode, YAY ME!

 
Stairs
 

These are our stairs in our backyard...we just happened to be laying on a blanket nearby and when I rolled over and looked up...I thought 'snap' -this was pure luck!

Linked up over here.

Photography love...


 Macro
 

I 'macro' anaylized everything this week!!! HAHA! This is just one of our many daily park adventures last week. I swear that the bark on the ground is more entertaining then the swings and slides! This is the shot that I choose for my macro photo...I'll show you all the ones that didn't make the cut later in the week.

Clouds
 

The morning sun peaking through the clouds on Saturday morning.
 
Abstract
 

This was our view from the car on the 4 hour drive to the cottage. We left around 8pm in hopes that the kids would sleep most of the way there...Gray slept for 45 minutes. Go figure.

Smile
 

Seriously, how cute is this cute? No explanation needed :)

You got some great shots! And I'm totally envious of your cottage time ;)

I love the sun flare on the stairs. And those little hands in your macro shot. Too cute. I know exactly what you mean about the mulch, lol.

Well done ;)
