Welcome back to Scavenger Hunt Sunday. This week, we are fortunate to get away for a long weekend…which for photographers can be rare…especially three months before Christmas. I’m sure to be taking a lot of photos – we’ll be hitting up the Discovery Museum on Friday (I’m writing this on Thursday) and going to Asheville today. I’m hopeful that we’ve timed our trip just right for the leaves to be changing (we call this Peak Season). I’ve always wanted to go to the mountains during this time of year and hopefully Felicity will love it as much as I do.
Anyways…for those of you who didn’t participate this week, but want to participate next week…next week’s list is once again from Fat Mum Slim’s Photo A Day: October

The rules are simple:
- Anyone can participate.
- You’re encouraged to take five new photos this week for the challenge. Creativity is also encouraged!
- 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).
- Link up here on Sunday (or Tuesday at the latest) – you can use the button above.
- 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
- Have fun!
Without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:
1. M is for…MESS
Felicity is loving books right now. This, of course, means that every day she grunts or squeals for us to bring out the bag of books for her to pull out, taste test and then throw across the room. She will occasionally open up one of these books and flip through it as if to read it. She has one book, in particular, that she really loves – Peek-A-Book Baby…she will bring this book over to me to read and once I’m done, she’ll ask me to read it again. My husband really loves it because I read it in my high pitch voice (which she loves) – apparently, it’s like nails on a chalkboard.
2. What You Saw Today
I get to see this little munchkin every day! Recently, she’s been toting her doll babies around the house (along with her books, boxes and anything else she can get her hands on). I open our front door every morning and she’s been sitting by the door and watching cars go by (yes we get outside too – but it’s been rainy this week…and she won’t wear those cute rain boots I have for her). What does this mama do when her sweet little girl is caught looking cute in the front door with Strawberry Shortcake? Yes, photograph her.
I shared this photo on Thursday of four month old Bryant…but I think it fits this prompt fairly well. Before we went to a local park, Bryant’s mom and dad wanted to capture him sitting up like a big boy in his crib. Here, he gives us a big smile while sitting in the corner.
Last Sunday, my parents came up to hang out with us. My mom mentioned that she wanted to hit up the fairgrounds for cheap fabric. Well…the fairgrounds was closed (I guess to set up for the state fair?) so we drove over to Pullen Park. I always wonder if it’s really necessary to take my big camera – in this case, I’m glad I did because I was able to capture this great shot of my mom with Felicity. Love it!
So I recognize that the hands in this shot are out of focus…but that’s not the point. I saw a photo on Pinterest that inspired me to step outside…which I knew would drive Felicity nuts. I was hoping she would squish her face up against the glass, but this is just as good…I now have this as my phone’s lock screen so it looks as if Felicity is locked in my phone and begging to get out.
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, here’s your list.
- First World Problem
- A Good Day
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.
