Scavenger Hunt Sunday [5-8-2011]

This past week I went on a photo excursion to Chicago with my dear friend Brooke from My [Boys]terous Life and we had an absolute blast! We went to so many places that I lost track but I have my 966 pictures to remind me of all of the wonderful places we went to that day. Ouchy.....I also had an aching body to remind me off all of the walking, squatting, and running around that we did. I was WIPED out to say the least but the pictures I captured were truly worth it.

SOOC
or Straight Out of Camera for you non-photo type.
Easy peasy....that's how I like to roll. Photoshop is evil, yup I said it out loud.
This was my favorite capture of the day and I think it's just perfect.
This was taken at the conservatory at the zoo and despite the very warm temps it was totally worth it.


Sprouting
Took a million pictures for this and here are my 2 favorite. Sorry I couldn't pick just one.
 The city of Chicago did a beautiful job of making the area around Millennium Park so beautiful.

Isn't it Ironic
that my husband spent his birthday on Saturday at a play house for my niece's 2nd birthday?!
He's a kid at heart which is one of the things I love about him.

Lazy
Something I definitely haven't been lately but the animals at the zoo sure were.
My ape buddy just sat there chewing away on those sticks all morning. This is how I plan on spending my Sunday morning this week, sitting around doing nothing but munching on some good food.
 I couldn't forget about him, this is the definition of lazy, don't you think?
BTW, their horns are made of hair not bone. Good to know right?

Smells like Spring
at Millennium Park when you have beautiful tulips and trees blooming all around you.
Isn't this just breathtaking?! I took a lot of pictures here and I'm sure you'll see more soon.
