Shoot Me! 2 of 52

Forever In Blue Jeans

Shoot Me 2

Luckily we have outdoor ice very, very close to our house. As in so close I can just about toss a kid out the window and they'd land on the rink. It’s great for a quick pick up game of hockey or just having fun.

And check this out... Maxine, over at Our Space the J's put together the most incredible book from all of her 52 Weeks pictures from 2009. Please go check it out here and see how wonderful it is! She put it to music and it's seriously enough to make you cry. I had no idea when I started this meme that it would touch so many. The book she created I know will be treasured for generations. So keep up with this great challenge, you and your family will be glad you did!

Shoot Me! Post a picture of YOU (yes YOU) with a child, spouse, friend or even by yourself every Thursday. You'll be glad you did!

A LITTLE INFO:

  • Shoot Me! is every Thursday. I may post late Wednesday for those in earlier time zones.
  • Please have the Shoot Me! button (or 52 Weeks button) in your post. You can find the Html code on my sidebar.
  • Please don't link up to MckLinky if you aren't participating. Thank you.
  • If you're not sure how MckLinky works, leave a comment and I'll get back to you ASAP.

I was seriously afraid you were going to wipe out and take your camera with you on this trip!!!

What kind of a crazy woman takes her camera out on the ice where there are nutty kids playing hockey???????!!!!!!!!

I admire you for getting out there with your boys. Cold is not my favorite flavor for the outdoors.

I was impressed with Maxine's creation, too. Thanks again for hosting this.

Marice said...

Make sure they have their skates on when you toss them out the window.

I have thought about making a book too...this meme has been so inspiring Carin. Thanks again.

Lori said...

Love the picture. It must be nice to have a ice rink right outside your house, lol!! My daughter has been wanting me to take her ice skating. Happy Thursday.

Sharon said...

What a great photo of you and the boys.
You are so lucky to have ice so close.
I love the rosy cheeks, but cold is not my favorite thing.
God bless

Andrea said...

Rae said...

Dear Ice Princess,
I am glad I have a snowbank in my backyard so when my children become hotheaded I can toss them out to cool-off. Then I can snuggle with the warm baby and a cup of cocoa before they tramp in a leave the snow, clothes and MESS all over the house.
Love,
Paying For A Quiet NE moment

Erin said...

Oh, that is so cute! I love your pigtails...you look like one of the kids...

He & Me + 3 said...

Super cute picture and that is awesome that your boys can skate whenever. i'll bet they are pros on those skates.

jen@odbt said...

Great photo! That is so cool the rink is right outside and it's probably not crowded. My kids want to ice skating so badly but this momma's not ready to deal with the crowd.

Wow! I am so excited to see so many participating. Great picture. I am so scared of ice! My kids used to skate and their instructor convinced me to get out there and take lessons with them. So I did. I never once fell but I never became a good skater either. I just moved around the perimeter shaking in my boots, too scared to fall to ever actually have fun doing it. Love to see you with your little men, Carin.

The J's said...

what a fun picture! You are an inspiration in many ways!
Thanks also for your link to my book, and thanks for everyone's comments. I really enjoyed creating it!
