52 Week Challenge - 8/52

The idea of this challenge over on Carin's blog, Forever in Blue Jeans is for Moms to get in the picture with their family at least once a week for a year. The great thing is you can join in anytime...the BEST thing is that following along assures you regular pictures of your family - with YOU included!

We have had A LOT of much needed rain this week. Fortunately, we have been far from any damaging storms, but in 4 days we have seen more rain than we would have at home at our former home in an entire year.

We have a pretty nice view here; but this has been all we can see this week....



Needless to say, I have been going crazy the kids have been a little restless without being able to spend much time outside.

You can only do your hair so many times....



And the dog's patience with playing dress up is running thin....


So, this morning, we headed to the mall before Mommy pulled her hair out for the girls to have some dry play time and ice cream. It cleared up long enough to eat outside.


And get a little silly....


Smile for the camera....
And get Mom in the picture for this week's challenge! (although it was a little much to ask that everyone would look and smile!)



*********************************************************************

52 Weeks is a year long challenge for YOU to be in a picture once a week for 52 weeks. Moms are typically the ones behind the camera, this is OUR chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family.

So, get yourself in the picture every week for 52 Weeks. Be in a picture with one or more or your children and post your "family photo" on your blog every Thursday - don't forget to list your post on Mr. Linky on Carin's blog!

The mall...I wish I had girls to have fun at the mall with! What a fun post! I kept thinking..where is she, and there you were; saving the best for last! Oh, and love the pics of dress up, especially the dog!

The pic of your dog had me cracking up. Too funny! You and all your girls are beautiful.

PS: I made the picture collages with picnik.com - it's a great photo editing site. Most of it's free but I do pay for the premium service. Give it a try. I love it.

Oh, that was so great. The dog is even dressed up, gave me a much needed smile. I love the dresses on the girls, the polka dots are so cute. Great pictures of you all!

Don't know where you are in FL, but Welcome!! The water sprout park that I pictured is in Lakeland (between Orlando and Tampa) and is called Barnett Family Park.

Thanks for stopping by with a comment. I don't know how I missed your post for the 52 Week challenge. You all ended up with a great photo, and "yeah" for the mall and ice cream!

About the collage...I use picnik.com, the best part is the basic things are free.

In His love,

Ahhh, dressing up the dog! How fun is that? I remember dressing up kittens. I wonder why my daughter has yet to try that? But if I tell her, she's sure to do it. Not sure I want to start that ball rolling?!

Great photos!

I remember days at the mall. I would take my boys there weekely for pretzels, a train ride and to throw pennies in the fountain. Treasure those times, they go quickly.
