Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro on Monday (9/3/12)

Welcome to another edition of the photo Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro!  Enjoy!

1) Candid

My parents and mom's mom were in town over the weekend. We met up with one of my cousins and her kids at a park on Saturday.

2) Toys
Toys for grown ups. (Available here.) I shot this for an article about fall greeting card ideas (still in the works).

I'm also using this as my shot for I Heart Macro.

3) Any of the 5 Senses
When you go to a park with kids who are five years old or younger, it is inevitable that you'll end up spending some time in the sand.

4) Batteries
I recently bought a new pack of batteries for one of our remotes. Exciting, right? I figured that this would be a good opportunity to take something article worthy.

5) Half
One more shot from the Wisconsin Dells. I'm not a big fan of the phrase "better half." Shouldn't you feel worthy enough to be one of the halves? "Other half" maybe?

Check out Ashley's blog to see what other people submitted for the themes this week.

Here's your weekly dose of Angel. Yep, that bag is on the floor just for her.

The Monthly Photo Challenge Update:
I'm still getting my September board set up and will have photos ready to show you there next week. I did get the last few days of August added over the weekend. You can check out my full August board here: August Photo A Day Challenge.

Where Else I Linked Up Today:


  1. Looks like you had a fun day out with your family! Sammy is afraid of bags, hugs to Angel!
    Happy Labor Day!

  2. What fun to watch the kids play at the park :)
    I love your shot for toys! I consider new crafty items toys too :)
    And I love that you have a bag on the floor just for Angel!

  3. what about significant other? LOL But it's a creative use of the word! Looks like a lot of fun at the park - the kids are so cute. I took out my leaf stamps a few days ago, and stamped on my September calendar! {:-D

  4. How fun to get to take a break to play with kids at a park:) And...kitties with bags:)

  5. Great "half" photo... I think nowadays when folks say "better half" they are affectionately joking around...

  6. great photos...I also think "better hale" is a show of affection...I am also a card maker...paper crafts is my passion...hope you have a wonderful week!

    enjoy *~*

  7. Dear Rose, It looks like you had a wonderful time. Thank you for sharing the photo's. Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  8. Angel is always great in any post. Just the way it is.

    I always refer to hubby as my better half, because he is. He just is.

    Have a terrific Labor day. :)

  9. Great set. I liked the Toys shot (I do stamping too) and also liked the Half shot. I agree about the phrase "better half" .

  10. It's fun to see the kids enjoying the sand and playground! Great half photo too! Angel is just so cute with her back paws straight out and her front paw curled up. She needs a tummy rub! :)

  11. I think playing in the sand looks like fun but then again so is playing with toys :)

  12. That looks like a fun park day! And I love your toys shot. Great set!

  13. Great pictures as always. Love the kids playing. It's been a long time since we've had little ones around. I do have a birthday party next weekend for my niece's first birthday so I'm looking forward to it.

  14. I have to agree on the comment about the better half thing. I notice that I tend to say my other half unless I am focusing on something that I don't think I do well.
    Telling now that I think about it.

  15. Great shots with a variety of scenes.

  16. Another nice collection of photos! I hope you had a great weekend.
    Everyday Inspired

  17. Angel is puuurrrrfectly happy with her bag ;-) LOL - I thought the "half" was because you could see half of the tree... Great photos!
