I approach by taking pictures for the month and see if a theme reveals itself.
I thought my theme would be “oh the places you go!”
I think it turned into “4 year old point of view”.
Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did taking them!
This next photo just made me laugh. We let our daughter pick out 2 toys to bring with her on the car ride to school. Usually they’re mini stuffed animals. On this day, Elise grabbed the 2 largest stuffed animals she has.
February in MA had quite a few snow storms.
We’re MA Audubon members and in late February, we visited Moose Hill in Sharon, MA.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else came up with!
Barry is also the man in the photo above. He was at the museum the day we visited and noticed my daughter investigating the cannons. While Elise was talking to Grandma, he hid 2 plastic coins in 2 different cannons for my daughter to find!
I cried tears of joy. Here I was worried Elise was getting bored and his kindness made my day.
Finally, I’m thankful for the beauty of New England nature – especially on Cape Cod.
You can find our family on Cape Cod at least 1 weekend a month, if not more. (My in-laws live mid-cape.)
Did you enjoy my photos? Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is thankful for – and their creative photos.
October with a nearly 4 year old has us appreciating play. I have a wealth of photos to choose from that would fit the theme. The hard part is picking 5.
We celebrated cousin Georgette’s 3rd birthday at a park in Walpole. I was extremely impressed by all the ride on toys at the playground for kids to use. Elise tried out a few.
My daughter finds play everywhere. She loves arranging shells when we visit her grandparents who live on Cape Cod.
On the Cape, the town of Chatham hosts “Pumpkin People in the Park” every October.
The displays are always wonderful, but not usually interactive like 2 were this year.
Above, my daughter attempts a “pumpkin push up”
You don’t need any event to play. Here’s my daughter enjoying running on the beach. Later in the day she pretended she was rescuing sea turtle eggs and some adults turned to look. I whispered “they’re imaginary” and the adults smiled and walked on.
This last picture was in Dorchester at the Pumpkin Parade.
After a fun night of trick or treating and seeing family who were volunteering – Elise and Daddy walk back to the car. I liked her light up shoes and glow bracelet adding to this one.
So there you have my 5 photos.
Looking forward to seeing the other posts from those in the photo blogging challenge.
The theme for the April photo blogging challenge was “Drink Up“
I had fun with the theme but knew from the second I saw it that I wouldn’t be taking beverage photos.
Here’s my creative take!
It wasn’t intentional but my toddler daughter got featured in all of the photos this month.
My brother is going to Qatar for 9 months for work, and we had a going away party for him.
My mom gave my daughter the cake toppers to play with and she was overjoyed at the additional to her toy collection.
My daughter and I went to pre-school storytime at Unity Farm Sanctuary and oh my goodness this goat was using their height to get food and attention. The farm owner gave the lettuce to us to feed the goats, so it’s part of their diet.
My daughter loves books and is just starting to memorize them to “read” to us.
This is from Easter – sitting on my dad, her Grandpa.
My daughter was given an Easter basket with fake grass in it and she had so much fun making a mess. Why not enjoy it and clean up later, right?
My daughter and I got out in nature a lot in April. This is her riding on Grandpa’s shoulders in Sylvan Gardens on Cape Cod.
I hope you enjoyed my photos. I enjoyed taking them.
The November photo blogging challenge was “Thankful“
This was actually a month of photo taking that I had too many to choose from!
Despite the pandemic, I’m thankful that we’re still able to safely enjoy outdoor activities with our toddler
Every once in a while I remember to get myself in the photo, so here’s a selfie I enjoy
I’m also very thankful for our family!
This photo was taken on Thanksgiving
Here’s a bonus because I still can’t believe I caught it without trying. I was at an online fundraiser for The Samfund that had Tig Notaro as a speaker. Look what I caught when I excitedly taking a photo of Tig! (My name on the thank you donors scroll)
