Photo contest at 5 Minutes for Mom

Update: 5 Minutes for Mom will select finalists and then the internets will vote. That means you. I will post the news here if my photo is selected for the voting round.

One of my favorite sites, 5 Minutes for Mom, is hosting a photo contest with a summertime theme.

I know, the photo below has made an appearance on this blog once if you've seen it you can go about your business.

If you haven't, this is my littlest son. In this picture he looks like he's about to kick back and relax in that (freshly watered and mowed) green grass, maybe have a leisurely conversation with his brother while lounging on a lawn chair and sipping some lemonade.

But you'd be wrong.

This would be the nanosecond he was standing still, since walking out the front door of our house is like flipping a switch to run-around-as-fast-as-I-can.

So I like this picture because it captures him standing still. But if you look really close at his eyes you can see he's got fleeing on his mind...

That is one of the most adorable faces I have seen yet! He looks so innocent yet you are right...there is something back there that says there something else on his mind.

I'm so glad that I have found your blog as I have truly enjoyed reading through it. I have added you to my feed reader so that I can keep up.

I too have entered a photo into this contest and wanted to wish you the best of luck.

I've also entered my photo into another contest that is going on this week. Please check it out! I appreciate any votes I can get! :)
