#21 A photograph of myself with something that symbolizes the season
Welcome to the June linky for the 2014 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt! Below, please link directly to a post on your blog about the Hunt. It can be a new post written for today or it can be a link to one of your favorites from the first few weeks of the Hunt. Please try to visit a few others who have linked up as well. It's so much fun to visit and be visited! So far, I have posted six finds; today will be number 7, and that's one third of the way through. You can visit all my previous hunt posts by clicking on this link. I've found these pretty easy to find. How are you coming along on the hunt? Is it easier than you expected? Or harder? Remember, there's still plenty of time (you have until Sept. 23).
Today, I'm sharing a photograph of myself with something that symbolizes the season. It's me at a baseball game - definitely a staple summertime activity for my family. In fact, here's the rest of my gang at the game:
I love this photograph because it shows a happy milestone for our family. We've been attending S.F. Giants games together for years. Sometimes, when the kids were little, we would only last 4 or 5 out of the 9 innings. Some years, the kids were snarly or only wanted to spend the whole time shopping in the gift shop. But, Paul and I persevered, taking the family to at least two games each season. Sometimes insisting that everyone go because it was a required family activity. And this season, for the first time in my memory, both kids started asking "When are we going to go to a Giants game this season?" or saying "We should all go to a baseball game." It made me smile so big inside that I went ahead and got tickets last weekend. And, we all had a great time together. The required family activity has become pleasant time spent with my favorite people in the world. And that's a scavenger hunt find worth blogging about!
Now it's your turn to share yours. Please link directly to your post, rather than to your blog in general, and do try to visit a few other participants.
