Scavenger Hunt Sunday {09.15.13}


Enjoy a Pumpkin Drink

I wasn't quite sure what to do with this prompt since I don't drink coffee, lattes or espresso. The only other "pumpkin drink" I could think of was a milk shake, but I didn't think I could make that look pretty in a picture. So I got creative some bottles of orange crush. Now I am all set for Halloween.

Read a Book

My second grader LOVES to read, so I guess he takes after his librarian-mommy. It is a good thing that I go to the library every week so I can keep him supplied with books! He read the entire Secrets of Droon Series over the summer and now he is working on Book 5 of the Children of the Red King series.

Something Sweet

I made some yummy zucchini bread this week, but it was all gone before I took a picture. So I used this prompt as an excuse to go get a cupcake at our local cupcake shop. This is the "Better than Anything" cupcake. Looks yummy, huh?

Animal

I am allergic to  basically any animal with hair, so we are a no-pets household. So instead of a cat or dog, you get an awesome chalk picture of a fish.

Get Artsy{Something Beautiful}

In case you were wondering how I happened upon a sidewalk chalk fish, this weekend there was a "Chalk the Block" festival at the Provo Riverwoods, so I had to check it out. I was absolutely amazed by the gorgeous works of art that were being created right before my eyes.


Unfortunately the weather has not been particularly cooperative. We have had thunderstorms every day this week, with everything from light sprinkles to heavy downpours.


Needless to say this makes chalk art very difficult. The artists had to cover their work with tarps during periods of rain and hope all their hard work didn't get washed away. Some artists had to redo portions of their work or even start over.


But they kept on working and I admired the artists for their tenacity and talent. This was my first experience with a chalk art festival and I know it definitely won't be my last!

  12. Super set. That chalk art is amazing and yes, truly beautiful. I would have loved to have been there viewing the artists and their work. Thank you for sharing it.

    Wow your son really loves reading. Coleen enjoys it but like I said she hasn't been to into fictional stories so I'm hoping with the new teacher she has this year that will change.

    What a fun and clever idea for the Pumpkin Drink. Did you use stickers for the faces? - Also that Cupcake looks almost "sinful."

  16. our community also hosts I Madonnari in the Mission Plaza (the second weekend of September). It's one of my favorite art events --- you are correct! the art is amazing! chalk art can be found on my blog under September 2011!
    Your son MUST be an advanced reader... that's a pretty hefty book for someone his age. He looks so comfortable & involved in the printed words. As usual, your photos are stunning!
