Meme with a Twist!

We all know how I love memes (ME! ME! ME!). The lovely Sandy at Just for Fun (you can also find her here too!) tagged me for this one, and it is different than any other meme I've seen before.

The rules are as follows: choose the sixth photo from your sixth album and post it with a brief description and/or the story behind it.

Well, I'm going to use my Picasa albums, 6th from the top of the list, and I have a gazillion pictures since DH gave me my fabulous birthday gift! Here's what I've got for you (PS this was lots of fun, I started typing up this post before I had any idea what I was going to get!):

Oooh! I love this one! My favorite pictures tend to be ones where MH is not staring right at the camera and I can catch her natural beauty without trying, or getting a funny face! I remember this day so clearly - it was a Sunday, on the way down to the beach this summer. There is a gorgeous spot I have always loved - a clearing where you can see the Jamestown Bridge, lots of water, and boats - so picturesque. We had the "special" camera with us, and DH pulled the car over (as I've said we should do a gazillion times over the years). Finally I not only had pictures of one of my favorite views here in RI, but I got to take them in such high quality AND with my beautiful little girl and handsome husband in many of them. We seriously must have shot at least 150 pictures in less than 10 minutes - it was just so easy to keep snapping! This one was taken right before we were getting back in the car.

Turns out, I was extra glad we chose that day to stop. There was a backup getting into the beach parking lot because it was full - they were letting in cars in one at a time, only when another car left and freed up a spot. I spent the time viewing my fabulous photos on the camera!

I can't recall, but I think I'm supposed to tag 6 people (I'm going with it - 6th album, 6th photo):

Liza @ Life With a Diva and a Princess
Beth @ Little Princess Chronicles
Candy @ Everyone Has A Story to Tell. This Is Ours.
Beth @ A Real Anti-Supermom
Lisa @ Life With Our Little Ladies
The Mrs. @ One Fabulous Mom

I can't wait to see your pictures and hear your stories!

I really love these kind of pictures, unposed, and random. Perfect.

Oh, this looks like fun.

When looking back at older pictures, I often find that I like the less perfect ones better.
