Successful Hunt

I was mostly successful with the photo scavenger hunt.  There are some subjects I had a hard time get a pleasing picture of but I had a deadline, so here are my final pictures: 

a bridge

something with stripes

a musical instrument

a big lorry/truck
I had to look up 'lorry' to make sure I knew what we were talking about.  I have lots of pictures of trucks, none that I really liked, this one was... not the worst. 

round clock face
We actually have a round clock in our house, but it's kinda boring.  As we were driving through the Hill area of Boulder I spotted this and insisted that BFJ pull over.  We actually had a nice little adventure, exploring a nearby skateboard shop, and getting some drinks.  I thought the boys were all going to go for hot cocoa but instead they had italian sodas. 

'your shoes'
I am not really a shoe person.  I love shoes, but it's just too expensive a hobby for my lifestyle.  If I had the shoes of my dreams, I would get some Fluevogs, like the Mollie Johnsons, or some three-buckle boots.

park bench

a newspaper headline
A lot of other hunters have more timely headlines, but we don't get the big local paper.  We get the little local paper. 

a 'post box'

I found these in a drawer of my great-grandmother's Singer. 

something heart shaped

something red

Very cool photos! Doing a scavenger hunt for pictures sounds like a lot of fun :)

Great photos Karen! I love that your truck says England on it -- since the scavenger hunt comes from England and lorry is a British term. And those eyes! One must wonder what Grandma was doing with those eyes!

Wonderful images! i can tell you had fun with this. I love stopping for a photo and ending up on a little family adventure - we often drive in and out of the country so much that we forget to stop along the way. the paper is right - "timing is everything"

These are wonderful! I did not remember to hunt this time around, but I will try to do better this month. This is such a fun way to spend time with your boys!
