You Capture – Happiness


This week’s You Capture, courtesy of Beth, was to capture happiness.  I will admit that this last week it was difficult to see the happiness in life.  But I kept looking.  Here is where I found it.

I found it in taking my oldest two girls out for a treat.


Aren’t they cute drinking their bottle of root beer?

The other place I found happiness was in walking on the new section of freeway running through town.  It doesn’t open until Thursday or Friday, but last Saturday morning they opened it for a fun run/walk/bike.  Sweet Pea was in the stroller.  Sass rode her bike the WHOLE way without complaining.  (It was just over 3 miles.)  SmartyPants didn’t get to go because she had gymnastics.


And this last picture is a cheat.  It is from a couple of weeks ago, but it brings me such a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart.  Sweet Pea is a mommy’s girl through and through.  She pretty much ignores T unless he’s doing something fun or she doesn’t have a choice.  (Which makes me sad, because she is such a snuggle girl.)  But this picture shows just how much love she has for him.  *sigh* It makes this mommy happy.


So what did you capture this week?

  2. Root beer, alone, makes me happy 🙂 Your daughters are so cute…and I once had the chance to walk down a major interstate right before they opened it. It was a very fun experience (and I think about it every time I have to drive through that area!)

  3. Aww, daddy’s girl photo is just precious! =) Lovely.

  4. Oh that last one is awesome! So sweet. 🙂 Of course, I also do love that mile-wide (if toothless) grin over root beer!

    Great, interesting pictures! You DID capture happiness and maybe that’s what made this a good assignment. Some of us had to LOOK for it this week. You did a GREAT job!
