Picture Perfect Sundays #13 {Formerly Instagram Sundays}

July 14, 2012

I love to share photos and I love Instagram. I was one happy little blogger when Instagram became available on Android devices. I jumped, no leaped, on that particular social media bandwagon and have developed a new love affair/addiction with it. Because of this love affair I have decided to start my very own Sunday link up aptly called… Instagram Sundays  Picture Perfect Sundays!!! (I had been thinking about changing the name and format for a little while to include all types of photographs… Instagram, phone camera and any other type of camera. Thanks to my hubby we have a new name!!!)

I would love it if you would join me and share the treasures you captured with Instagram/phone camera/any other camera during the past week. I see a lot of fantastic, cute, funny and happy moments every day.

Share just one or many of your pictures and add a small description.

Just paste the badge into your post or sidebar and follow me… quick and simple.

My Instagram user name is of course, bocafrau!!! 🙂

I look forward to seeing your Instagrams on the big screen!!!

Here is my week in Instagrams:

Little One who is three ordered these alligator yakitory skewers at one of our fave Japanese restaurants. They are really good and taste kinda like a mix between chicken and veal.


A slice of the banana bread I baked Friday night and ate for breakfast on Saturday morning. I added some chopped almonds and oh my… it tastes great.


I just baked theses lemon glazed cookies tonight. They are delicious. Thanks for the recipe Katie at Sluiter Nation!


One of the birds that frequent our neighborhood lakes. I think, it’s an egret but not 100% sure. It was watching us very carefully probably wondering if the dogs were going to go after it.


Ducks. Two of the many that cause traffic jams and other ills… it’s not fun walking the dogs trying to dodge their poop on the sidewalks! 🙂


Look who came to visit our neighborhood lakes… an otter. Him and some of his buddies come a few times a year. He was sitting by the edge of the lake and munching on a fish, watching me. I love watching otters swim, play and frolic in the water.


Lots of hair… from our Yorkie. She finally got a much needed cut. It amazes me how much hair this little 5 lbs canine has.


Our old girl Macy… she’s 12 now and showing her age more and more. I still remember when the hubby surprised me with her. She was such a tiny little bundle.


This has been my sight most of the week. Middle came down with the dreaded summer cold. So far none of the rest of us have come down with anything and I hope, it stays that way.


Little One floating in the pool. She just mastered this skill this week. I’m so impressed with her… she swims from one end to the other, dives under and touches the pool floor and relaxes and floats.


Under my favorite big tree in the neighborhood… enjoying the view and shade.


And of course, what would my week be without one sunset shot. I tried to get a different perspective and took the picture through the fence. I kinda like the way it came out.
