Picture Perfect Weekly #28 {It's a circus}

November 10, 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 weekly link up called… Picture Perfect Weekly!!!
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. You can find me on Facebook, Twitter and of course, Instagram!

I look forward to seeing your treasured moments!!!

Here are mine…

We had a busy but fun week…

It started off with a beautiful sunset at our local park after the girls had some fun on the playground. I took my awesome Nikon for a spin and was not dissapointed with the absolutely gorgeous sunset I captured. But as you can see my phone didn’t do too shabby a job either. πŸ˜‰

One, or two, or all three of the kids will usually accompany me on my afternoon walk with the pooches… they run, jump, scooter, bike, or as my boy likes to… roller blade. The girls will find any opportunity to pose for a quick shot.

Little One had a blast at Guitar Center when we had to stop in to pick up a pedal hubby had on hold there. She really gave the drums a work out. It was hard to get her to leave… I may be in denial but I think it’s inevitable that a drum set will make an appearance in our instrument collection in the future.

I’m not a big fan of self portraits (mostly because I never take decent ones) but couldn’t resist showing off my new color sans grey. A little magic in a bottle!!! πŸ™‚

The kids had no school on Friday because of parent-teacher conferences… yay for three day weekends. We started the day with a delicious breakfast of home made waffles, scrambled eggs and sausage. I got some stuff done around the house, a little cleaning, a lot laundry and then got ourselves together for an afternoon of fun under the big top! Cole Brothers CircusΒ comes to town every year around this time and stays for a few days. Middle’s friend and Little One’s little friend joined us… Everyone had a great time. And to finish the night of we had a nice kid-friendly dinner at Chili’s.

Hope everyone had a great week and a wonderful weekend!!!

Your turn…

      I try not to color my hair too much but it was time for sure! Everyone always tells me that I’m crazy and it’s in my imagination. But I can see every new grey hair that pops up! πŸ™‚

    LOVE the photo of the circus tent!

    P.S. Isn’t it great what a little magic in the bottle can do?

      Magic in a bottle is fabulous. I always feel so much better after a coloring. πŸ™‚ I like the tent picture too. πŸ™‚

    I got my grays covered this week, too! Yours looks fabulous!!! Loved the circus pictures—there is something about a circus that brings out the kid in all of us!! Have a great week!!!

    • Susi November 11, 2012 at 11:01 pm

      Yes, it sure does. I love the circus in the tent… it reminds me of the few we went to when I was little. No big arenas for us!

    You certainly did enjoy a weekend of fun! It’s nice that you can count on the circus to come every year.

    • Susi November 11, 2012 at 11:00 pm

      Yes. It is nice. We don’t go every year but I thought it would be great for my little one who’s now 4 and she had a blast! πŸ™‚

      You know, I think, with three kids around there is always something going on!

    What a great idea! I’m still not an active Instagram user. I’m going to have to get in the game soon since everyone I know is loving it.

    • Susi November 12, 2012 at 11:31 pm

      You should. It’s so fun and just think of all the people you could share your recipes with!!! πŸ™‚
