Photo-A-Day! Friday, January 20th

Today was super spectacular awesomeness wrapped in a burrito of fun.
Colorfulpen, Better Half, and I ventured to a nearby park to have a picnic. I know it's winter and you're thinking, "who has a picnic in the middle of winter?" but today was freakishly warm (77 degrees). So we took advantage of it and headed out. Though the wind wasn't friendly, the sun did get pretty hot on our backs; especially when we started to play frisbee.
Now let me tell you about that.
We were throwing the frisbee in a triangle formation - better half to me, me to colorfulpen, and colorfulpen back to better half. Well it was all fun and games until better half threw the frisbee, the wind blew it onto it's side, the sun blinded me in the eyes as I did the Y pose of the YMCA dance, allowing the frisbee to pass through my arms and clunk me right onto of the head. OUCH.
I have a cute little goose egg resting on my crown now, but I have to admit - it was pretty darn funny. I can only imagine how stupid I looked as I fell to my knees holding my head yelling OWWW!
Ha! Woopsie daisy.
Afterwards, we walked down to the pond area of the park, where two fountains erupt graciously in the middle of it. The sun must of hit the fountains just right because we noticed a rainbow form on the edge of it. Of course I got my camera out and started snapping hungerily for a perfect shot.
And after that? We walked the trail.
Needless to say we were all very tired by the time we got back to the car.

Here's a picture of the rainbow! I hope you enjoy and there will be many more pictures from today to come!

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.

-Wizard of Oz (Judy Garland)


  1. Ha! Great post. That first sentence explains it all, doesn't it? It made me giggle, as did thinking about the fun we had today.

    So sorry about your goose egg. :/ Playing frisbee can be dangerous.

    Awesome shot of the fountain and the rainbow. None of mine like that turned out, so I'm glad yours did.

  2. Thank you, thank you! Yes it definitely does! XD So glad it made you laugh. :D

    It's okay! It's all good! It sure can. Who knew?

    Thank you, sorry to hear you didn't like yours as much. :(
