Have Camera, Will Travel

After being cooped up all week, I was ready for a little adventure. Along came a beautiful Spring day, so a drive to the water seemed like the perfect way to spend the afternoon.

My camera came along for ride, too. And I was a happy girl.

Graces abounded. Naturally, I counted them and gave thanks to God.

#802 – 823

  • Spring Break
  • my man and kids home all week
  • cooking on the grill
  • my man for having the idea to hit the road of adventure
  • kids willing to humor their camera-crazy mom
  • lots of smiles

  • surprisingly warm sand
  • walking barefoot in the sand
  • fun in the sand; her love of beaches

  • a gorgeous day

  • flip flops

  • Blue Water Bridge – I crossed this bridge hundreds of times growing up as we frequently visited my grandparents (known as Grandma and Grandpa Canada) in Ontario. Oh, the special memories.

  • watching a freighter pass

  • ice floating by

  • my kids. . . incredible blessings every day

  • dinner and ice cream . . . the perfect ending to a perfect day
  • signs of Spring

  • first family walk of the year
  • A summer-like Sunday!
  • Spring is here to stay!
  • birds singing joyously

How did you spend your weekend? Have you been on any adventures lately?

In hope,

  1. WOW! Thank you for sharing your gratitude list with photos! The visuals make me grateful too. Your children are beautiful, as is your heart.

    P.S. On a totally superficial note: As one who struggles to get the ‘perfect photo’ for the annual Christmas card, I have to say I’m green. It’s April and you already have pics to choose from ! xoox

    I’m here from Ann’s again

    And my favorite from your list: Spring is here to stay! (and my fave pic was your two babies – the one all serious in the hoodie 🙂 and spring is here to stay now – Winter had it’s last kick like always – but it’s all Spring now – until it gets HOT)

    Thank you for this. God bless and keep you and all of yours.

  3. I don’t know the personality of your kids, but I like all of those shots of them. The last one, with the two of them profile and the bridge in the background, looks like a shot of two young models for a travel or clothing brochure. They are gorgeous!
