Heat – Theme Thursday

Tracey’s theme for today is Heat.

Around here (where it is pretty much hot all summer long!) the heat has forced us to keep cool by playing in the wading pool, living in our swimsuits and eating tomatoes, fresh off the plant, still warm from the sun.

Addie has been eyeing this tomato for weeks. And she was so excited to sink her teeth into it when I finally gave her the go-ahead.

For a trippy little blast from the past, check this out…

Emma, 3 years ago. She was 18 months (about 4 months younger than Addie is here). Same swimsuit. Documentation of her first tomato from our garden. Cool, huh?

This was a non-digital pic – remember those? Shot in b&w and then scanned in with a not-so-great scanner, so the quality is not as great. But I think it is such a cool coincidence. Totally not planned, at all!

    Wow! Deja vu! Adorable, and love the b/w.

    Oh wow, what a fun shot! Can your kids teach mine to love tomatoes?? I would love to see something like this. πŸ™‚

    Oh my gosh, how cool to have the SAME shot of both girls! You should make a diptych with those! You are really bringing back the memories for me…I loved eating sun-warmed tomatoes straight off the vine (especially sweet yellow pear tomatoes!). I’m impressed Addie waited for your go ahead to pick the tomato; Nadia just can’t keep her hands off the plants! we have a cantaloupe vine in the backyard, but the poor thing has lost all it’s blossoms.

    There’s a great page for next weeks Crafty Tuesday! Very cute. Remember when the girls were that small? Seems like so long ago, huh?

    That is so neat. The things that I’m missing by having two at once. Your daughters are so cute!

    Neat, i love comparising shots and often try to recreate shots with my second that i done with my first. its even better it was by accident on your side. I love the selective colouring

    I love Emma’s face in the second one. Is she ‘sure’ about that tomato taste yet?? Very ‘Summer’ and a great pair of pix.
