Ten Things - Scavenger Hunt

 #14 A person playing with a ball - Phil loops it so high, it goes right out of the picture
 There it is!

#6 A historical landmark.  How about our nation's capitol?  Apartment hunting in D.C. may have been a bust , but it was great for getting Scavenger Hunt photos.
#21 A picture of you standing with something that symbolizes your nation.  Me in front of the Washington Monument.  Walking in D.C. when it is 100+ degrees out is very tiring!
The girls in front of the White House - with a bunch of bus tour crowds.
#4 A roadside stand selling something.  Here we have a block worth of roadside stands selling D.C. souvenirs and ice cold drinks across from the United States Department of Commerce building.
#3 A border. There is the wire fence border surrounding the grass, and the border along the edge of the sidewalk.

#9. A fountain. On the White House lawn. While technically this counts, I'm not really impressed with this fountain. I'll be on the lookout for a better one!

Hooking up with Shimelle's Ten Things.

That DC trip certainly put a dent in your scavenger hunt photos - how fun!

I totally laughed at the the ball going out of the shot in those first ones! LOL

Wow, Cheri, you go girl! You look great in the shot with the Washinton Monument. I think you'revthe first to post in that category. I love the perspective in the second shot of the border.

These are lovely. I am way behind on my hunt! I am visiting the USA this summer though so feel that that could be my week to hunt!

Ginger said...

Oh I LOVE your photos Cheri!! I would love to visit DC, hubby has been but I think it would be fantastic to see! I agree though about the fountain.

Fantastic photos, but I agree that fountain is a bit of a let down when it has the famous landmark behind it! I love the ball playing photos. x

Jak said...

Tammy said...

You are making a good dent in your scavenger hunt list! :) Looks like a fun trip to DC. You captured some great photos!

Karen said...

I love D.C. and wish I could use a photo for historical landmark. I haven't figured that out yet. And you and the Washington Monument---brilliant! That's another hard one I'll be happy to cross off. Great job!

Cheryl said...

Such great photos! I have to say, I thought a building as majestic as the White House would have a stately looking fountain.

Sara Grafton said...

What a fun scavenger hunt! It looks like you and your family are having a busy summer. Thank you for visiting my blog!

Wonderful group of photographs and you have cleverly hooked them up to 10 on the Tenth. It is great to see some Stateside photographs, especially Washington DC which I visited back in the 1980's. Such amazing buildings. I love your idea for No 3, a border.

Gail said...

Wow Cheri you definitely made quite the dent in your scavenger hunt photos. I haven't even got started on mine yet but hoping tomorrow's planned outing gives me a few.

Alison said...

Don't know how Imissed this on the 10th(!) but have come over via Rinda's blog...you really DID make a dent in the SH!

Wow, you are practically halfway there! I do love the look of those roadside stands - just the kind for an inexpensive browse

Isn't it funny how we know we can do better on an item we have found so we keep on looking for the same thing again!
