It's not often I get to combine two of my favourite challenge sites but these two just work together so well for this month.
Living in the southern hemisphere means that it is winter in June and I had been watching the weather reports for a couple of weeks. This was turning into one of our wettest winters in many years and the forecast for the chosen weekend were dire to say the least with storms and heavy rain predicted. I sent up a prayer both to the Good Lord and our eldest son who would not be with us for the first time. We drove to the park chosen as it is one of our gathering places and it rained almost the whole way with more heavy clouds closing in. The rain stopped when we arrived at the park. All the families arrived and had various photos taken; we gathered together for a shared morning tea and some more casual photos taken of the little ones at play. The family has grown a lot in the past five years and there are now sixteen people in our family photos.
After three hours of fun and photos each of our families and the photographer got into their cars and drove away. My husband and I gathered the last of our things and headed off to watch our third sons game of hockey. The skies opened up as soon as we got into the car and it poured down for several hours and to such an extent that the game was called off.
Our eldest son is not in the photos but I believe he was with us that day; he knew how important these photos are to me and made sure we stayed dry.Thank you for looking and any comments you may leave, best wishes.
