Pictures: SOUND

I'm playing along again with the photography challenge that Marcia and Mandy are hosting.  This week's theme is SOUND.

Yet again, I can't say these pictures are masterpieces by photographic standards, but at least in my head, I can definitely hear a soundtrack playing when I look at them.

From our mini-vacay in July to Gatlinburg, TN, and Charlotte, NC, during which we saw Marcia and Mandy...

Baby A loves to talk to animals, and she always uses the funniest voice.  Here she is, cooing at the penguins at the Gatlinburg aquarium.

On the way to dinner on Sunday afternoon in Charlotte, we stopped to hear a little ensemble playing in Centre City.  Baby A was taking it all in, while B was dancing with Daddy.  I love the look on his face -- his "dancing face" I call it -- as he was grooving with his girl.

This was Monday morning at breakfast in the hotel lobby.  I can just hear Marcia's voice as I look at this picture...appreciating the detail in whatever she was looking at.  :)

From the end of July...

At the ice cream shop one day, I was trying to take some pictures of the girls.  B had had enough.  "Stop, Mommy!" she'd just said, holding up her hand for emphasis!  HA!

From the orchard yesterday...

Here's Baby A, talking to one of her beloved goat friends at the petting zoo.  "Hey, little goatie!  I love you!"  I'm not sure what the goat was saying in return, but you can tell from the look in her eyes that it was a meaningful conversation.
Next week's theme is WORDS / LETTERS.  See you then!

Lovely pictures. I can also hear the sounds in the pictures (ok my imagination is working over-drive).

;) :)

So sweet, those conversations with animals! Nicola does that too. She always asks them if they are looking for their mama, which I get a kick out of. ;-)

First, I love that the others are coming to comment on your pics too :) :)

And then, I LOVE those pics of Charlotte. It takes me right back to that square where they were singing. One of my favourite moments of those days. I don't think I told you but I LOVED how we all stopped... to enjoy the small things and then how YOUR FAMILY started all spontaneously dancing. I was DELIGHTED! I printed that collage I sent you of the dancing Daddy and B - makes me smile so big!

ps I get a lot of the STOP with the pics from Kendra but I also get the most excited about pics from her so I don't mind it ... so much :)

Oh Charlotte!

I love the pictures. I now read Marcia's blog in her voice, LOL!

I seriously love the hand from B! I think they are all starting to stand their ground with pictures!
