Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Welcome back to Scavenger Hunt Sunday and Happy Father’s Day! This is my husband’s first father’s day so we are going to enjoy the day together as a family…doing whatever it is that he wants. I hope that each of you enjoy this day with all the men in your lives that may call themselves “dad.”

On another note, for those of you who didn’t participate this week, but want to participate next week…next week’s list also came from a few Facebook friends. I hope these prompts inspire you!

The rules are simple:
  1. Anyone can participate.
  2. You’re encouraged to take five new photos this week for the challenge. Creativity is also encouraged!
  3. If you get stumped, you may use one photo from your archive (although I’m not too strict about it – I do my best to take fresh shots).
  4. Link up here on Sunday (or Tuesday at the latest) – you can use the button above.
  5. Leave comments for at least five entries around yours (with so many new participants each week, it’s the only way I know to be inclusive
  6. Have fun!
Without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. Summer

Peace Family RS
Even though it already feels like summer, I want to say that the official start of summer isn’t until June 21st. I know this because my birthday is June 22nd and I always remember there being a lot of discussion about the start of summer. However, in North Carolina, we tend to skip spring and jump straight into summer. When it’s 80+ (and it hit 93 earlier this week) degrees outside, I hardly consider it “Spring.”

But all that is beside the point. Let’s say it’s already summer…and to kick off the summer, I reunited with many of my college roommates yesterday. We’ve been planning this reunion for months. One of the girls even drove down from Pennsylvania. The last time I saw all these girls, I think only three of our children had been born. Looks like the rest of us drank the water!

2. Dance

I’ve been in the process of editing my brother’s wedding photos this week. I’m about halfway done. Just today, I came across this picture of their first dance together as husband and wife. Don’t they look so happy?

3. Laughter

IMG_1086 RS
On the left – Felicity had just gotten her nightly bath. She wasn’t happy. As of late, she thinks that there are boogie monsters or something in the bath tub…so she cries. As soon as she’s out, all is fine. I must have been singing or dancing or something to get this face. Oh, I know…I showed her a picture of herself on my LCD screen. She thought that was a hoot. On the right – we took Felicity swinging at the park (during the reunion). She loved it. Here’s she’s laughing as she swings back and forth.

4. Helper

Swingin RS
Speaking of swinging (ignore the fact that Felicity is completely out of focus), here you see my friend’s son Will pushing his baby sister. He’s the oldest of all of our children…and he is quite the helper.

5. Water

Rubber Duckie RS
You know how I said that Felicity thinks the boogie monster is waiting for her in the tub. After her bath, we were looking at the water. I was trying to reassure her that only her rubber duckie was in the tub. She’s still not convinced.

So, what were your interpretations of the items this week? Be sure to load your pictures on your blog (or your Flickr photostream) and link up at the bottom of this post. Feel free to grab a button to display on your blog along with your scavenger hunt items. The linky will be open until Tuesday night at midnight (EST). If you didn’t participate this week, but want to participate next week, your list is below.

  1. Fun
  2. Arts & Crafts
  3. Messy
  4. Blessing
  5. Effort

If you’d like to contribute items to the list, just send me an email with your suggestions (I can better keep track of them this way). Each week, I will select one reader’s prompt list and give the selected reader a shout out on my blog during Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

Happy Shooting!


    That first picture is so much fun! I’m glad you all “drank the water” ’cause all of these babies are so cute!

    Your reunion looks fun! I’m at the age where all my friends are getting married so I have been having a lot of reunions too! It won’t be long before the baby stage will be coming!

    Looks like a great time was had at the reunion.
    Felicity looks so cute in the laughter shots. That’s funny about her crying in the bath but being calm after she gets out.
    Sweet shot of the rubber ducky

    Happy 1st Father’s day to your hubby! And, an early Happy Birthday to you!
    Love Felicity’s swing shot!

    oh you all are stinking hot already – we are still mid 70’s – which is rather nice I have to say!

    ooo who can resist that laughter shot xx

    That is some potent water, LOL. Love the pic of helper, so cute and he looks like he is having a blast helping. Thanks for hosting and Happy Father’s Day to your hubby

    Great photos Ashley. Happy to be contributing this week after a long hiatus.

    I love that first picture. Every one looks so happy. It’s not very easy to get a group shot like that.

    These are so great! Love her adorable smile! Happy first father’s day to you hubby!

    I made it this week ! love your little one and her beautiful smile. Great set!

    What beautiful memories Ashley!!! Love them all.

    I saw this on ‘to the sea’ and would love to give it a go next week. Such a great idea :)

    Your daughter has the most amazing eyes. Such a gorgeous colour!

    awww, what a great set!! loved the family photo and someone sure is getting a lot of teeth!!

    i hope you had a wonderful day!!

    Fun set of shots! I’m sure you’ve already gotten lots of suggestions, but does Felicity like to pour water? Several plastic drinking cups for her to fill, pour, and refill might help her enjoy bathtime a little more. Maybe start with a plastic container of water outside for her to start loving filling/pouring the cups of water…and then transfer it to the bathtub. Hope something helps…and SOON! :)

    Looks like a great reunion! Love the photos of Felicity! Funny how she doesn’t like her bath. I think all my kids went through that phase. Here’s hoping she gets over it quickly. :)

    Sounds like you had a great time at your reunion. I love the picture of Felicity laughing in the swing.

    I love that shot of all you college buddies together. It’s great that you could get together. Cute ducky. Love the laughter shot in the swing.

    When I saw the list for this week’s scavenger hunt, I really thought there would be no way I could ever find them all. Turns out, they were really easy!

    love these!
    How fun to see your college friends! and to have a photo!
    Felicity is so adorable (even when not so happy)!
    You capatured something wonderful in the shot of your brother and his wife.
