I am so excited about this fun and creative event.  I love taking pictures and savoring memories.  This is a great way to show off some of my favorite photos!  A big thanks to all the hosts for such a great idea!  🙂

This week, the color is RED.

Passion, love, summer, flowers, berries, dresses, bikinis are all things that come to mind when I think of Red.  But, for my picture, I captured a moment from a wonderful day spent walking with my kids in the rain.

This picture makes me so happy.  We had one of those great days where stress was temporarily forgotten and fun was the norm.  Adam was using his umbrella to shield himself from horrific imaginary monsters while his sister daydreamed about stickers, dollies and flowers.  I love how much this captures their personalities.  He is the imaginative goof-ball while she is a whimsical romantic.

This Dr. Suess quote really says it all:

“Today was good.  Today was fun.  Tomorrow is another one.”


And, for the sake of RED, I just have to share this photo of poor Chad…

Irish skin + summer sun =

sunburnOuch!  He was literally glowing red and radiating heat.  Poor guy.
