Sky Watch Friday!

blue skies ... good times
I won't say that it was "nuthin' but blue skies," but we had predominately fair weather for last weekend's activities. My parents came up to visit (from Florida) and the top two photos were from Saturday's family reunion at a cousin's farm. There was a little rain off and on, but we had strong sun for a good portion of the day. ...Man, I have a LOT of cousins!!! Some came from as far as Puerto Rico, and one (the sister of the balloon catcher with the orange shirt) just earned a PhD! I resisted the urge to say, "Eh, what's up Doc?"

.

The bottom two pics are from a return to my brother's place. That's the same site where we went pond fishing last week. There were plenty of wonderful things to see at both places, but the best part was that I got to spend time with people I love.

.

One quick story from the family reunion: There was about 9 of us in the swimming pool, when (just for kicks) I shouted, "Guys! Guys! Help me find my swimming trunks!" You should've seen the looks on their faces!!

Happy weekend! Perfect one for SWF! We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon.... Mine's up too hope you can drop by...

The placement of the images here creates a pinwheel movement. I feel a breeze! This is great.

You the family joker then? Hm?

I love how you montage those pics together - very clever. The bottom left with the reflection is my favourite.
Lovely shots.

Says it all. Great collage. Remind me of what a blus sky is, nothing but grey here.

What fun, looks like you had a blast! I had my version of a family reunion when I went to England in June. And on Saturday both sons, both DILs, baby g-son and the Mad Puppy are coming for a BBQ.... that's as big as my family reunion in Canada gets!
Yes, I saw Jesus Camp, I found it quite scary.

Rose said...

A nice collage for good memories...I really would like to see more of the one in the bottom left.

Jeanne said...

All four shots are marvelous but I'm especially drawn to the top right..love the colors, the blue, green and orange shirt really go so pleasingly well to the eye. And the bottom left with the straw grass and water in the background(looks to me). Very nice!

very beautiful pictures!

lime said...

love that shot in the lower left corner. :)

as to the prior post, i haven't seen the new batman flick but i agree that implying things is often so much more powerful than just being graphic.

Again, That is a great shot!
