This is image is for Shutterday. The theme is brick. We went to Georgia with my grandfather three years ago, and the bricks all had names of local families on them. My grandfather was hunting for the names of his brothers who had both recently passed away. He is the last of his immediate family left, and his feeling was that this would probably be his last trip home. It was a wonderful and bittersweet trip all in one. I will never forget that experience.

This one is for Photo Friday, the theme is the face. Reilly is too cute, and one of my favorite subjects. When he actually holds still long enough to have his picture taken they usually turn out great. This one he was trapped in the tub, that is the only place I let him eat popscicles because they make such a huge mess otherwise. Enjoy.
This weeks Two 4 Tuesday Challenge is Man-Woman. I immediatly thought about weddings, but wasn't sure if I had a pic I wanted to use, and no weddings in the near future. I was able to find this pic however, and I remembered how much I liked it. The couple was standing in front of the crowd, and slyly holding hands, I couldn't resist taking the picture. A little twist I guess, but I felt like it worked with the theme.
Now that school is officially over I am a little more able to participate in my photo challenges. I took this picture just a week or so ago and it fits ferfectlly into this weeks Moody Monday theme Moonstruck. The moon was rising through the clouds and I snapped this from my parent's back porch.

Photo Sunday is fruit this week. We have this passion fruit vine growing along our back fence. This one in particular caught my attention because it looked like the flower was giving birth, which I guess it esentially is, but you don't often see it so clearly. Not the best pic I have ever taken, but I like it.

I found another photo challenge site that I am liking. Their theme this week is silhouette. I thought this was the perfect shot for this. Reilly was playing in our room in the early morning so I pulled out the camera (of course), and started shooting. This was actally intentional. Enjoy and check out the new challenge site Lens Day.

This is one of my all time favorite pictures of Patrick. He is waiting in line to go on one of the rides at the fair. Last year was the first time he was big enough to go on any of the rides. He loved it. I thought I would submit this one for the new Moody Monday challenge - Yay! Don't know if it's a perfect fit for everyone, but it was for me.
