Live Every Moment - Vibrant Colors

   It's Friday yey!
      I love the weekends specially when I know we are going to be spending time with family that we haven't seen in a while. This Sunday we are going to see my mother in law she has been so busy working that we haven't seen her in a long time....okay we saw her at the beginning of April but for us not seeing her for almost two months just doesn't work. She really is the best mother in law God could have given me. We all wish we could be closer but it is what it is. 

This is mostly a photography blog with sprinkles of anything else that sparks my creativity so here is the photos for today.....

 http://liveeverymom.blogspot.com/  has a challenge every week and this week was "Vibrant Colors" I was able to get several that would work great for this however I keept going back to this one..... 

Nature is amazing it can turn this awesome fruit from green and hard to soft, juicy and sweet "ciruelas"(I didn't know but I guess they are consider a small plum)that come in hues of yellow,orange,red and even plum! They're absolutely delicious!
This you see is a very special photo to me. I took it in 2009 with my little "point and shot" while I was visiting my grandparents in a small little town six hour away from Mexico City. A beautiful place where time really does goes slower. I hadn't seen my grandparents in over 10 years and although this was not a planned visit(I might explain at a later time) now I'm so glad that I was there because soon after that visit my grandmother past away. That little point and shoot enable me to capture the last photos of her which will be treausred for ever. I'm thankful for the time I had with her. I can't wait to take my boys and my hubby to see the place where I was born, to visit the church where my parents got married that still stand even after all this time, to visit my brother and his little family who are so far away.  

This last two photos are scenes that happen quite often in my house and not always because of the boys.

Happy Friday!
