Summer Photo Contest

U-Printing is sponsoring a summer photo contest. So of course I had to get out the camera and submit a photo. I'm not the photographer in the family, but I can capture some fun moments.

Forget Sugar and Spice, frogs are for girls!

I know it's summer when my girls start hunting for frogs and toads. At any given time they may have 8 or 9 floating around in their little pool that they have captured and are watching. They save them from the dogs in the backyard and run through the house yelling "Toad, I've got one!" as they make their way to the front door. This year Little One joins in the fun without any hesitation. She's known to have one in each hand as she walks around the yard. This one she named Croaky. They spent the better half of the afternoon together.

I've titled it "Forget Sugar and Spice, frogs are for girls!". What would you name this picture?

Great picture! You were brave just to get that close to a frog! ugh! I never let my daughter pick them up if I was nearby. Hope your picture does well:)

Awesome picture! And I love the caption! Hope you win! | Online Printing said...

She’s a darling I want to take her home! She’s so charming! Good thing she’s not afraid of frogs. I’d probably name this photo as “You've Got a Prince in Me”.

That's so cute. My girls were never into toads, but I remember being so in my youth. What fun to stroll down memory lane.

I love that title by the way.

I loved frog-catching!!! We had a pond growing up and that was my favorite thing about it. Great picture...what a sweetie.
I might be goofy with my caption...something like, "In Your Face."

Thanks everyone. I love your titles too! I think the science teacher in me keeps my girls from being squimish:)

ok, what about "one day my prince will come," or "it's never to young to start looking for mr. right." the latter maybe a little to bitter sounding :)
