There are just a few weeks left to complete this year's Summer Scavenger Hunt, and I'm closing in on it. I need to do the self-portrait, and our heads are still in the clouds looking for something recognizable. But I have a few new ones to add to the list as well as a few extras.
While Sarah and Caleb were here, we went to the Seneca Park Zoo one morning with Betsy, Matt and Skylar. Our zoo is tiny, but well-kept. Skylar's a member of the zoo and goes regularly. For a little girl just under two, she knows her way around well, and was eager to take Caleb to see her favorite animals.
I got quite a few good shots. I'll choose one of these from the mix for the final Summer Scavenger Hunt layout. (#11 Animal in a Zoo)
I decided to add the animal names to the photos (there are quite a few more) and make a little photo book for Skylar and Caleb. I finished Skylar's in time to give it to her when they came to dinner last night.
This cute photo of the two of them in front of a mural of the zoo made for a good title page.
Here's one of the inside spreads. After the animal photos, I included a group of photos of just them at the zoo.
One of the items on the scavenger hunt list that's been giving me a lot of trouble is #9: someone or something that's clearly out of place or doesn't belong. Yesterday on our walk through Highland Park, we came upon this cute little guy who was sitting in a tree. Clearly not a permanent resident of the park.
Last month I posted a photo of a windmill. It was actually a flower container, and I've had my eye out for a real one. Last week while my brother was here, we went to the Finger Lakes for a day, and passed this one overlooking Seneca Lake.
At the beginning of the hunt, I started a collection of benches and I've been adding to it all summer. But this post is already photo-heavy so I'll save those for another day. You can find link-ups to other hunts right here on Rinda's blog. Clicking on the Summer Scavenger Hunt logo on my sidebar will take you to a collection of all my photos so far.
