iheartfaces: Chalk

Posted by Picasa

This week's iheartfaces challenge is chalk. In the two year's worth of photos on my computer I did not have one chalk photo! That's okay, it was a great excuse for the three kids and me to go outside and color the driveway! I had lots of ideas: a Twister "board", a finish line (with David winning), a boat ride, and picking real apples off chalk tree. In the end, this simple photo of David turned out the best. Head on over to iheartfaces to see all the awesome chalk photos!

iheartfaces: Smirk

Posted by Picasa
This week's iheartfaces challenge is "smirk". I was baffled by this one at first. Don't I usually delete the smirk photos?! But, I went through all the photos stored on my computer and in the last batch I found this photo!
This is from spring break, about a year and a half ago. Eli, Ruby and I went to Brown County State Park. We hiked a long trail and found a small creek at the bottom. I just let the kiddos frolick as they wanted while I shot at least 100 photos. I believe there is nothing better to little boys than being given permission to throw rocks (even if it just is into the creek)! This was Eli's expression right before launching a particularly large rock.

iheartfaces: Vroom,vroom

Posted by Picasa
This week's iheartfaces challenge involves including vehicles of any kind. This summer we went out on the boat with my mom and step-dad several times. Of course, being all boy, Eli wanted to drive! I love the expression he has here driving the boat while on Grandpa Mike's lap. Vroom, vroom over to iheartfaces to check out the other awesome entries!
