In Search of Blue Skies

This week I thought I’d combine two of my favorite linky parties.  You see at I Should Be Folding Laundry’s You Capture, the theme is Get Outside.  At Ms. Jenny’s Rainbow Summer School, the color is Blue.  My thought was to Get Outside with SKB #3 and take some great shots of the Blue sky as he played in the jungle gym.  Except the skies looked like this all week.

But one of the great things about South Florida weather is that just because it’s gloomy in one area, does not mean it’s gloomy all over.  So I packed up my boy in search of blue skies!  It didn’t take long.  Just 9 miles down the road, things were starting to look up.

And there it was, in all its glorious splendor!

It just got better and better.

The sand and warm water felt delicious between my toes.

 He was pretty delicious too.

Mission accomplished! I

Not just blue but all the turquoise, green and navy colours in between! What a lovely day it turned out to be!

I love the beach shots. Well, just love the beach in general so I always love shots like this--from where I live you have to drive a few days (instead of 9 miles!) to find anything like this!:)

Aging Mommy said...

I really like the picture of your feet and the shot of your son is just beautiful too. You are so very lucky to live near such wonderful beaches, we just got back from our once a year trip to the sand and I am already missing it.

Karrie said...

I'm jealous! I couldn't partake in You Capture this week because the computer that holds all my pics is on the fritz! And they were good too!
As for your pics, I love them!! I am loving the Palm trees and the one of your toes in the water and sand, awesome!! (Especially the polish!)

Kelly @ In Everything said...

Tiffany @ No Ordinary Homestead said...

Everyone is killing me with these beach photos! That's it! We have to move back to Miami!! Beh.
Great photos, though...and you are so brave with your color choices on the toes. I've got to branch out a bit :)

Jenny said...

I am so envious you can drive 9 miles and find the sunshine AND the beach! Lucky, lucky you!

Cute pedicure, too.

What a fun stop on our little journey through Rainbow Summer School. It made me a bit blue that I can't hang out at the beach with you and those adorable little boys of yours!

But you still get an A+!

Thank you for linking.
