Scavenger Hunt Sunday {06.09.13}:
The Tucson Vacation Edition


My little girl has been having a fabulous time on vacation at Grandma and Grandpa's house in Arizona. She is especially enjoying the play dishes that grandma got for her. Miss Aubrey discovered that her great grandpa is a fun playmate!


There are many plants here in the desert that will "stick" you if you get too close. That kind of makes them "sticky", right?

Favorite Color

I couldn't choose my favorite photo for this prompt, so you get two photos. My favorite color of prickly pear cactus is definitely purple!

We went and played in Patagonia Lake and I managed to captures some really awesome shots of dragonflies, which was impressive because I didn't have my macro lens with me! My favorite color of all the dragonflies we saw were the bright blue ones.

Sun Flare

As you would imagine, there are many opportunities to take sunny pictures in Tucson, Arizona. This picture was taken at Saguaro National Park, which is absolutely breathtaking!


It is something of a tradition to visit Trail Dust Town and eat at Pinnacle Peak Restaurant when we are in Tucson. This year my little girl loved riding on the carousel. She had this big smile on her face the entire time, which is saying something since she went on the ride 3 times!
