 a lonely bench waiting for spring
and for people to come back regularly and sit on it.

Sweet Family

Christopher and I

Rachel and my hubby (Court)

My favorite picture of Winterthur of all the photos I have ever taken.
It is my favorite spot at Winterthur and I love the way the light hit that white flowering trees in the background and the blue of the flowers in the foreground and the ribbons on the May Pole in the middle. I love to sit on these bench swings and just relax and think about my creator and his goodness to me. These swinging benches are in the same area as the benches we are sitting in just above this photo, there are 4 benches around this circle.

3 photos of my hubby on 3 different benches.
This was one of the few times we went to Winterthur without the children.
Just hubby and I.

A favorite of mine. My hubby on a bench overlooking the pond.

I hope you enjoyed these. I have many more bench pictures so I will be doing this theme again some day in the future.

Future Themes:
Sept. 13 - Closeup 
(of anything, I would especially like you to use any closeup features you have on your camera, get to know your camera)
Sept. 20 - Back to School 
(this year, some other year, a bunch of years put together; of you, your kids, back to school supplies; whatever you want)
Sept. 27 - Relaxing/Peaceful
(whatever that means to you: a place, people, time of day, vacations, whatever...)

Here are the Rules for participating:
The purpose of Think Back Thursday is to link up a photo post about something from the past. You can reach back all the way to your childhood and bravely post pictures of you in your wild clothes and hair styles or post something from last year and tell us about it. I'm not picky. Hey, even yesterday was the past... LOL My posts will mostly be about events that happened prior to blogging, as a way to share those things with the world.
  • It can be about you, about your kids, about your parents, whomever. You can include video, I will not exclude video alone posts, but I prefer them along with photos, as this is a photo meme. I am doing a weekly theme now. That should help narrow it down from the myriad of photos we all have. For ideas check out the other posts in my label Think Back Thursday. 
  • Link up below. Please use a permalink that sends readers directly to the correct post. If you are not sure what that is click the word permalink for an explanation. 
  • Mention my blog and offer a link back. This is a requirement to take part and a kind gesture to me your hostess as well as your readers--they will know where to join in the fun, too. You can put the Think Back Thursday button on your site and in your post. You will find it on my right sidebar. Please use it to link to my site, to spread the word about my meme. Using the button will help others know how to find me and how to join. Tell others to click on the button in your post to find us here.
  • Leave me a comment. First so that you can let me know what you think of my pictures and secondly so that I will know a new post has been linked up and I can come visit your blog and comment on your photos. 
Join me!
