This photo challenge might take all summer instead of 30 days, but at least it's getting me to blog again...kinda...

I wanted to be creative with this photo.  It's supposed to be of fruit, and I have fruit!  But a bunch of fruit in plastic bags in the fruit drawer of my refrigerator was pretty uninspiring.  So I thought maybe I'd skip this one, wait until after next weekend (Pride weekend in Buffalo) and get a picture of something a little fruity there (I'm pretty sure I'm allowed to use fruit in that way...)

However, yesterday Amy's office had a Memorial Day lunch.  It was really nice - they grilled hot dogs and had corn and fruit salad and macaroni salad.  It was great.  I offered to bring dessert, since I had recently found a recipe for brownie pizza that looked really good.

And it's covered in fruit!!

This weekend was awesome.  Friday night we went to the Bison's game to see Maeve be the batgirl.  She was so cute! I'm pretty sure the Bisons won, but there were a lot of cute kids to pay attention to, so I didn't see much of the game...We were also asked to be Family of the Game.  I'm still not sure exactly what that's for, but we got put on the Jumbotron and got cheesecake, so it was fun.

Saturday Amy & I went to the Navy Park and walked around canal side.  We saw the new restaurant there that's supposed to be like the Hatch but we didn't get anything from them.  We'll have to go back.  Sunday was my birthday dinner at Mom & Dads.  Amy & I took the corvette out, which made the next picture (from a low angle) pretty easy, since it's such a low car. 
This is the Peace Bridge as we drove under it.  

Lou, Amy, & I went on a mission and bought a pool for Mom & Dad's backyard. I almost hope this summer is as hot as last summer so we can use it a lot!

Days 4 & 5

I'm still not very good at posting the right pictures on the right days, but this one can count for days 4 (something green) and 5 (from a high angle.) 

We had Ellie today and spent a lot of time in the backyard, where she gave the dogs toys and threw this ball around.  It was a great day.

It rained today.  This morning was a beautiful morning, warm and sunny with big, white clouds, but as the day went on it rained.  I should have taken a picture of those clouds.  Or the big, white clouds.  However, I waited.  And waited.  Until a few minutes ago, when I looked for clouds, and couldn't find any.  So, this is my cloudless picture of the clouds.  I'll try harder tomorrow...

Day 2

Well, I've already messed up my 30 day photo challenge...I forgot to take a picture of what I wore yesterday.  I do have this picture:

I took it one day after Ellie had a huge blow-out diaper.  That's what the poop got on.  My clothes, her clothes, dish towels, and Elmo.  That, in the top right corner, is one outfit I wore that day.

Today's photo is "clouds."  I haven't taken it yet.  Maybe you'll get it tomorrow :)

Photography Challenge: Day 1

I found this list on for a 30 day photo challenge*.  I think, originally, the purpose of the challenge was to improve photography skills...I'm using it primarily as a way to get back into blogging.

The first day says "self-portrait."  I usually try not to be in pictures, especially pictures I'm taking myself, but I can't really skip the very first day of the challenge.  I am cheating, though.  This picture was not taken today, and I think technically Maeve took it.  I'm using it, though.

* When I went back to pinterest and followed the link, it took me to this page:
