Favorite Photo Friday - "The Covered Bridge"

April 5, 2012

Last weekend we had a lot of rain and cold temps and we found ourselves indoors for the better part of it, but we did have some relief on Sunday, so I took the girls out so they could run around and get some fresh air. I am thinking everyone else had the same idea, because when we pulled into the Parkway, we noticed lots of cars in the lot.

A Wave Hello To the Biker Passing By FINAL BLOG
Many people come here to walk, run, or ride their bikes along the path. Reagan saw an adorable little boy approaching on his tricycle and got very excited and started waving to both he and his Daddy!

catch me if you can Reagan Covered Bridge BLOG
There is a very old but beautiful, covered bridge in this Parkway. At one time you could drive though it, but now they only allow you to cross by foot or bicycle.

Sarah thought it was the coolest thing because it was so dark inside....

Window Light in the Bridge BLOG
And the only light came in through the windows.

Sarah giggling in the bridge BLOG
She had a grand time running in and out of the darkness!

While Sarah totally loved the bridge, little Reags was not a fan. I am not sure if it was the darkness, the small cracks of light coming up from the old wood floor, or the fact that she knew there was water beneath us. Either way, she did not feel safe unless she was in my arms. For the most part, Reags stayed out of the bridge altogether......

and much preferred to run where her feet were firmly planted on the ground!!

Backwards on the bench in front of the covered bridge BLOG
It happened to be the first weekend of the fishing season, so there were a lot of men with "lines" in the water. The girls sat for a few minutes hoping to see someone catch something.

But that didn't last long. They sat still for all of 2 minutes....

And then they were up running around again. These two are always on the move!

Well, I realize that today is not really Friday, I decided to post a little early, because I have a SUPER SPECTACULAR GIVEAWAY that is going to be presented tomorrow morning. I know it is a holiday weekend and everyone is busy, but you will DEFINITELY want to check back to see what it is all about. I am busting to tell you all about it, but you will have to wait just one more day for all of the details.

Last Friday, I received an email an hour after I posted about my four year anniversary cookbook giveaway....... and while I just LOVE Giada and her new cookbook, the GIVEAWAY that was offered definitely takes the cake! I have never had a prize like this. Some might even call it a GRAND PRIZE, so make sure you come back tomorrow..... I promise, you will not be disappointed!!!

If you know me well, you know I cannot keep a secret, so I will give you one small hint.
It is heavy and it is something that I carry around quite often;)

Okay.... that is all you are getting from me until tomorrow morning!!!

Feel free to start linking your Favorite Photo Friday posts.

Adorable!!! Love the smiles. I grew up in Illinois and Indiana where there are quite a few covered bridges so I have a fondness for them.

Hmmm....I'm thinking a purse or a camera? 2 things that I LOVE! Looking forward to your next post. :)

I got a suspicion I know what it is...even though I know you like to cook and DO NOT "carry around HEAVY POTS/PANS on your person , I'm gonna ditch that guess and go with my "first mind" instead!! :)

Melinda said...

That photo by the window is GORGEOUS.

M3 said...

Hey those pics remind me of a red covered bridge in PA we took the girls too (back when they were teeny). I'm sure it's not the same one, they probably all look alike, right?

I love that 2nd to last pic of girls together!! Precious!!

Mimi said...

Aw, beautiful sister pics! I knew from Reagan's face that she was not liking the bridge, her eyes were big and fearful.
It's just lovely to see them together, the fun they have and the love for each other, and you capture it so very well Lisa.
Excited to see the giveaway tomorrow!

I love these so much. Back in October when we headed to CO- I knew there would be a covered bridge where we were going. We drove an extra 30 min out of our way just to go & I had visions of my photos of my kids looking like these when we got there. Didn't turn out anything like these & I was so disappointed. I am SOOOOOO looking forward to your class coming up soon!!! :) These are AMAZING!

BTW- I meant to add in my other message- I feel the same way about those I have met through blogging. Those that have been brought into my life through this way have changed me beyond what I ever thought was possible. So blessed & grateful for that.

Beautiful girls, beautifully photographed.
