Scavenger Hunt Sunday - Ramblings and Photos

Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Welcome back to Scavenger Hunt Sunday. We’ve had a very full week and I’m pretty sure that time is not going to slow down any time soon. We have like 10 weeks until Christmas right? Full steam ahead!

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:
  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. Watching

Walmart Pumpkin RS
Felicity is an observer by nature. I learned very early on that if I wanted us to enjoy an experience, that it was best for me to arrive early to allow Felicity to warm up to the idea. It took us what seemed like forever to go shopping for groceries without a meltdown…and we still haven’t gotten comfortable with staying in the church nursery. At 15 (almost 16) months old, shopping is one of Felicity’s favorite things to do, and this week, our grocery list was rather large. Even still, I made time to peruse the Halloween aisle for this photo. I was hoping she might give me a smile, but she was too busy watching other customers.

2. Leafy

We have rather small leaves in our yard, but Felicity rather enjoys playing in them. She likes to pick up one at a time…and then hand them to me to hold as she picks up another. I’m really hoping to find her a big pile of leaves so she can jump in them. Then again, maybe I’ll save that for next year.

3. First World Problem

First World Problem - Baby Gate
I could actually use your help on this one. Felicity has recently learned how to climb up the stairs…which is great unless we aren’t paying attention and she falls down the stairs. So, we got a baby gate. Unfortunately, our options are rather limited because of the molding along our stairwell. If you know of any baby gates that are 26″ or shorter…even better if they have a swing gate or bars that Kitty Paw can fit through, that would be great. The one we have now is functional, but ugly…and it doesn’t swing open which is a pain in the butt…and also a first world problem.

4. Still

Serious Pumpkin Face RS
Keeping Felicity still is limited to sleep and cuddles. However, the other day while at the pumpkin farm, she found a swing. She made it clear that she wanted to climb into the swing and got mad at me when I put her back down on the ground. Either way, while she was on the swing, she was content and still.

5. A Good Day

Discovery Place RS
We’ve had a lot of good days this past week, so I thought I’d share a few of them. This first shot was taken at the Discovery Place last weekend. During our weekend getaway, we started in Charlotte, NC for a day. We weren’t quite sure what to do with ourselves, but we thought Felicity might enjoy the Discovery Place (especially since I’ve had good luck at the Marbles Kids Museum). Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of her putting away all the blocks, but I did capture her enjoying this developmental bridge (it had an area for toddlers to practice walking with a dip in the road, curves and steps). She enjoyed sitting in the dip.

Last Sunday, we drove up to Mt. Mitchell in hopes of seeing the leaves change. It was a bit cold and wet, but we were able to capture a few pictures. My husband captured this one of me and Felicity – I love it!

Finally, on Thursday afternoon, we went to the North Carolina State Fair. Thursday was also my fourth wedding anniversary. Rather than go out to a fancy dinner, we thought enjoying an afternoon at the fair would be more fun. Felicity LOVE LOVE LOVED the carousel and kept asking to go back (you know, by pointing at it).

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.

  1. Change
  2. Your Mood Today
  3. Dark
  4. Welcome
  5. Depth of Field

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!


    I just love the shots of Felicity playing with the leaves, such a sense of wonder and curiosity. I also have to say I love her eyes as she is watching everything. Sounds like you had a lot of good days, such fun!
    Thanks once again for this great linky party.

    YOur photos are always so beautiful!!

    I really love that one for still- the light is stunning. But then there is the one of you two together. WOW- what a beautiful moment in time there. To be cherished.

    Looks like you have had a really fun week! My two-year-old also LOVES the carousel. I think she would go all day if we let her.

    She looks like such a little girl now! These pictures are wonderful.As a grandma, we are back to baby gates again, they never seem to be quite right.do they?

    Felicity is so precious! Still is wonderful!

    Felicity just keeps getting cuter and cuter.

    Felicity was busy having fun this week! My grandson, 13 months, has just learned to climb the steps – unfortunately, the concept of sliding back down on his stomach eludes him.

    Felicity is gorgeous! I love the photos of you together, that was very sweet.

    My oldest son was slow to warm up as a toddler, and would sit and observe the situation (even playgrounds) before joining in. Now I REALLY appreciate his cautious nature as he is learning how to drive. ;) His dad, while taking him practice driving, remarked that he could skip all this and get a license to drive a motorcyle…our son immediately answered, completely serious, “No way. Those things are dangerous!” LOL

    Oh my, ‘still’ is just fantastic!

    Some darling shots of Felicity this week. – I really liked the Leafy shots of her and also the one of you and her together. Very sweet.

    I don’t think Felicity wears the same outfit twice! :) You always have her dressed in the most precious outfits. My favorite photo is still the one of the two of you in the Mountains.

    It looks like you’ve had a lot of fun lately. I just LOVE that outfit with the witch’s hat! I want one. ;-)
