Photo Scavenger Hunt- Rainbow Style!

Yesterday we went on a scavenger hunt, but not just any old scavenger hunt. To make this more fun I handed over my camera and told Dude to "Find me a rainbow!"
(insert enormous toddler smile here)

Here's a cropped version of what he found:



To say my son loved this activity is an understatement! I don't think I know a child who isn't always eager to get at Mama's camera, and my guy's no different.







He actually took this job quite seriously, but still had SO much fun running around spotting things!


Here are his original photos:







He had a blast doing this and I love being able to go back and see things from his perspective. 

It was so funny to also find close up pictures of his face, toes, and of course he also snapped a nice SUPER duper close-up of the bird poop on the fire hydrant :)
