Cindy - Florida Tuesday 5:30-6:30 PM

Yes, it was a good walk tonight! Matthew and I walked during Noah's football practice. Our first encounter was a bus that was being towed. That poor tow truck!

Next, we walked past the library and the park. I ran ahead of Matthew and then he ran ahead of me. Cardio! The Winnie the Pooh key chain was just waiting for somebody to take his picture.
This next collage includes some interesting things along our walk. My favorite is the weed growing out of the crack in the brick wall.
It was a pretty long walk so we brought a container of water along, for Lucy. I love the way she's sizing up the duck.

This lock has seen better days! I put the two pictures up to show how a slight change in camera angle can completely change the look and feel of your picture.
This last one represents Heaven and Hell. At the end of our walk, we spread out our soft Spongebob blanket on the grass and laid on our backs looking up at the heavenly sky. But beware!! In Florida, that can be a risky move. I shot these pictures of the ant hill at the end of our walk to remind me, be careful where you put that blanket. Thankfully, we did not lay it on top of an ant pile. You see, in Florida we have our own little slice of Hell too!! We call it Fire Ants!! Just about everyone who lives in Florida has stepped in a fire ant pile. As the name suggests it feels like your feet are on fire. The ant bites become blisters and they itch for days!!
I hope your walk was heavenly today!:)

First and foremost, Nicholas would LOVE your school bus shots! I do too!

Next, Pooh was definitely awaiting your arrival. I wonder how long he waited for you?

Love your interpretation of Heaven and Hell. Yes, fire ants are certainly NO FUN! I'm glad SpongeBob didn't feel their wrath!

Great post today! And, thanks for your intervention today as well. ;)

LOL Hayley - I was going to say my boys would have been very excited to see a bus being towed, too! What a cool thing to capture on camera. (Well, not for the bus driver, but you know what I mean.) I love the weed sticking out of the wall, too. It's amazing how many little things you see when you have a camera in your hands that you probably would have overlooked otherwise!
