First annual Rainbow Challenge...

Its hot.  Like oh my.  Its tricky enjoying nature while its nearing 110*...
Enter our official Rainbow Challenge.
Here's how it works...
Each of us goes out to our backyard with the camera and takes a photo of something to represent each color of the rainbow.  Very simple!  (This is not about taking very pretty pictures.  It really is 110* outside, and its pretty miserable.)

Here's our results... (all 28 of them)

In the end it was HOT, true.  But we all had fun.  It was interesting to see who thought of using the same objects, and who found something unusual.  As a bonus, Matt was home sick, so our whole family participated!  I am looking forward to the next time we do this.  In another season we will have a whole new rainbow in our garden.

Thank you to Magic Onions for bringing us together each and every Friday to celebrate nature.

Very cool idea! We are participating in an eat a rainbow challenge where every week we eat a meal which is one color of the rainbow.
