An awesome day & book & giveaway

Don't hate me, but it's 65 degrees here today. So we went outside to play.

Check out that sunshine and the lovely breeze...

We took out V's beanbag, some pencils/crayons and paper, and An Awesome Book to read.

I plan on doing a lot more of this, at least until it gets really hot - it's much more fun than drawing and reading inside.

I was a lucky ducky and got Dallas Clayton to send me his book, An Awesome Book.

I especially like the drawings - very detailed. V says they're silly and lots of fun.

The message of the book is to be sure to dream. Without dreams, life would be megaboring.

So true.

V likes to dream about playing with lots of kittens and puppies. I like to dream that I can fly.

I like to dream about flowers. Digging in the dirt, growing them, taking pictures of them, giving them away, and writing stories about them. Aaahhhh!

So I RT'd your tweet! and I have sent the link to my DD to read, get excited about and blog about!

Fantastic book, my kids would love it! I love to dream about weddings. I'm a photographer so I dream about all the little details of special days.


Lately I've been dreaming about drinking a beer on the beach on a tropical island!

Camille Dawn WIlson

Fun!! The sneak peek of the book looks fantastic! Side question - where did you get V's dress? It's fantastic!

@camille - i blogged about that dress here.


that book is awesome! what a fun contest!
i like to dream about vacations in the mountains - good friends, family, a campfire, maybe some beer and some yarn!


The beach...whenever I want to escape...that's my dream place!


the smoky mountains in fall


Sandpiper beach, up by Ocean Shores in Washington State. I love that beach ...


hmmm...I like to dream about my next holiday destination and all the photos I will take there :P

Love the shots of V, they all all so clear (looks like really great weather there) and bright...I guess it's time to take more shots of my boy :)


Yes, our weather was so warm, too. It was lovely. What do I dream about? Unfortunately never good things, so I guess it is more about nightmares for me. You know, all of my teeth crumbling out of my mouth and so forth. But, I am a happy person with a happy life, so I am not sure where that comes from!

spread your wings

such a colorful, bright post.
corny but i like to dream about romantic love.


Oooh Ahhh 65 degrees and no sleeves!! Count us in for the book give away! I often dream about how I would change or remodel our house-if we had lots of money. It's hard to dream on a budget.


Beautiful photos! We had a perfect day outside today. It just needs to get a little warmer so we can go to the beach!

I like to dream about travel. :-)

We'd like to dream about no more snow!

What beautiful pictures and what a lovely post. It is hard to say what I dream about...mostly things that I just wish for such as happiness, freedom from worry (ugh...I'm a worrier), health, peace...too many things!

Terry Kearns

After your own kids, you think there can't be any cute left. But the cute just keeps coming.


Oh how fun!

We'd LOVE one!
Amazing pictures.

An awesome day indeed. What beautiful photographs! Thank you for sharing them with us. ~Arleen

What a lovely post--and great giveaway! Such beautiful pictures of V. I wish our weather was that nice here.

Probably won't surprise you to know that I dream about buying beautiful houses. Seriously. That's a recurring dream I've had for years. And I'm always sad when I wake up and realize, oh, not real. :)

Ann Kroeker

Blow some of that 65 degree weather our way, won't you?

What a wonderful memories you're creating, playing and reading and coloring out in God's creation. Beautiful.

Wish I had your ability to work a camera...

We had short-sleev weather today,too! Isn't it wonderful?

I like to dream about having a farm with lots of animals, garden vegtables and a porch with a rocking chair on it.



Check out her boots! GO V!
Right now I'm dreaming of being able to go to sleep. :P
