5 random smartphone photos, part VIII

Write time has come at a premium lately.

It’s 1:26 a.m. and I ought to be sawing logs. I just watched my Denver Broncos eek out a 24-21 victory against the Los Angeles Chargers. Also, the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks and I had nachos.

Can you blame a boy for not being able to sleep?

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a random-smartphone-pictures post. These are fun because I pick the photos at random. They force me to remember the day, the moment, and tell the story in a snapshot of text.

Amazingly, no photos from my trip with Camdyn to Jacksonville last December made it.

There are trips, though, and memories. And if I struggle to find time to write what I have on my mind – or more important, to answer your comments and read your blogs – it’s good to know I can pop in with a few photos and have a conversation with friends.

A huge storm – remnants of a hurricane – derailed our trip to Roanoke, Va., last season for a tournament. We were on the hook for the hotel, so we went anyway. We visited this beautiful church at the base of Mill Mountain Park.

Apologies for the crappy photo quality. Hayden’s team won a tournament this day (that’s her in the middle, holding the trophy) after the girls had lost all their games for two straight seasons. Loved seeing them get this reward.

Trips to Swanannoa to see Madison in college meant antiquing. Hayden and Camdyn modeled a few hats. They’re kind of shy about having their picture taken obviously. We’ll miss those trips, but I know we’ll find an excuse to go up the mountain soon.

Camdyn and I had gotten spoiled with huge hauls every time. We, along with Hayden, got skunked on this trip to Reedy Creek Park. We have a knack, though, to bring our A game for snacks – and get to a great place for lunch afterward, no matter how they bit.

Camdyn’s drama group at school (no, random not a band of teenagers) performs uptown every spring for judges. It’s an awesome day I get to shaperone. When the weather’s good, we get to share lunch with friends at Romare Bearden Park.

So which photo did you like best? What would the, oh, 42nd photo in your phone be of?

  1. i always love the random photos and memories. it’s kind of l like what happens in our heads (flashbacks to scenes and memories), and you have just found a way to show them outside of your head. it’s too bad your girls are so shy, maybe one day -)

    1. Thanks, Beth. As the police chief on Bluebloods said tonight, “there’s a lot of stuff in my head that isn’t written down.”

      These girls will get over their shyness. It’ll be the year the Rockies win the World Series (and the Lions win the Super Bowl.)

  2. Your girls modeling the hats – that is so family. Like the idea of five random photos – what makes them random? How do you select the five? As for my 42nd, a photo of my mock history notebook and the graphic organizer I wanted my students to use to gather information about the original 13 colonies. Have a great day. Peace.

    1. They couldn’t resist the hats, Clay. I use random.org – I actually count the photos in my Google photos and run it through the website to get my five random shots.

      (I use random.org for nearly everything in life, if I’m being honest.)

      Did the history notebook work in your class?

    1. Is it Android, Jenn? I connect mine to Google photos. Of course, I can’t sync my account, so I send them by message to my daughters, who email them to me for my blog.

      Has to be an easier way!
