Five Photos & Story Challenge Day #4-Sloane’s First Easter

EasterSunday_032308-06My blogger buddy Athena invited me to a 5 day challenge to join the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.

Day four, and another day for my precious daughter.  This photo was taken on Easter in 2008, Sloane hadn’t even celebrated her first birthday yet.  Don’t remember much about Easter itself that year but always loved this photo.  I’m sure the Easter Bunny visited and left her way to much candy that she couldn’t eat back then.  Her dad I’m sure picked up the slack though and ate it all for her.  Coincidentally I weighed about 50 pounds more back then than I do today (damn do I miss Cheez-Its).

Today I will nominate R.C. Liley at Going Dad, R.C. has become a pretty good friend of mine since I began blogging.  Once you visit his site you will see he has the second cutest daughter on the planet (I’m biased), eat’s healthier than a Weight Watchers nutritionist, and is a work out ninja.  He can take four leaf clovers, brussel sprouts, and acorns and whip some thing together that actually looks edible.

  2. Such an adorable photo! Love it.

  3. Gary, No wonder you didn’t accept my 5 Photos/5 Stories Challenge! LOL You are over-loaded with challenges at this time but I’m glad you did accept Athena’s invitation. Your daughter is adorable and so precious. Makes you a proud papa I bet. Beautiful photo and great post. Anne 🙂

  4. Oh wow, her eyes are brilliant in that photo, as I’m sure they are all the time too! Man, one of the things I miss most from my less healthy eating days is Cheez-Its. I would get the reduced fat kind (because I was “healthy”), sit down with a bud light and play Halo for hours! Couldn’t do it now, but had the best times then.

    Thank you for the nomination! Posting pictures 5 days in a row shouldn’t be a problem, and I think I’ll make them my daily posts for a while to hopefully take a little blog break. Just need to find the right pics and bloggers to nominate and I’ll take on the challenge.

    Thanks again! Oh, is there a link or badge or anything for this?

    • Not that I know of, I usually don’t play in the 8,000,000 different wordpress events but Athena is my blogger buddy and I couldn’t tell her no.
      The Big Cheez-Its were like crack to me. No problem enjoying a tasty beverage eating a whole box of them and it wouldn’t even be halftime of a football game.
      I figured you of all people would have PLENTY of pictures to share!

Tell Skipah all about it!
