Lucky three...

I was given this shamrock as a gift despite my extreme bad luck with even easy to care for plants. With the help of Robbie and Kya so far I've managed to keep it alive. I guess it really is lucky... but none with four leaves yet!

Three Peonies

So forever I have thought I could not do selective color with my Nikon Capture softwear, but in the middle of the night I looked it up on youtube of all places and right there in front of my face was the ability to do this! I'm so pleased that I can do it, but it takes a little more work than I thought! Perfect for our WOTW!

Three wheelin'...

Three boys a playing...

I babysat for friends today and you have no IDEA how hard it is to get a shot of these three! I took quite a few and only a few came out without some sort of blur...they move FAST!

After our trip to the mine today we headed over to the park where I snapped this shot. M was wary at first of me taking his picture but after a few shots he was all smiles.

As for the WOTW I didn't see any intersting shots today with three. There are a couple of things I have in mind but I figure if I can get an interesting shot that I'll save those ideas for a day when I'm stumped. ;-)

Not three again!

LOL. I think I'm making ignoring the WOTD a habit! Today we went on an interesting field trip with our homeschool group to S&T University Experimental Mine. The kids had a little class and then enjoyed checking out the mine. This was my favorite shot of the day!

NOT three!

Today we went into St. Louis to visit with my mom and we went to Laumier Sculpture park before lunch and Grants Farm after lunch. I took lots of shots, I had three on the brain and even got some good shots of THREE stuff, but this picture of my mom and Savannah won hands down.

Strategic three...

I am addicted to Rummikub! Too bad I can't win, lol.


Hope and I thought it would be fun now that she has her camera back to have the readers pick our WOTW for next week! Here is your chance to decide what kinds of shots we are taking, give us a challenge, and come out of lurkdom....ahem. ;o) So, post your ideas here and we will pick as many as possible and have a poll where everyone can vote. Lets see how creative you can be!


Today was one of those days that the word of the week helped me. I was struggling b/c I don't have enough gas to go anywhere to shoot and I'm tired of my yard, but the WOTW gave me the opportunity to see things just a little differently!

Karen and I had our weekly Disney day- something we do so we can talk about planning and to build aniticipation for the trip. Since Cinco de Mayo is this week we chose the movie The Three Caballeros and had a Mexican fiesta. As usual the girls didn't watch the movie but we still had lots fo fun!

Spring revisited...

This is the very same snowball bush that was barely budding in my first entry on this blog. Then spring was barely a promise and now it's in full bloom.

I suffered for my fun yesterday! Not only did I run yesterday morning for the first time in a week, but then I drank copious amounts at the sip & savor and THEN ate a ton of stuff last night I shouldn't. Needless to say, I didn't feel much like picking up the camera today, I considered taking a photo of the Aleve bottle. I made myself go outside and take some though and this is what ya get!
