Sports/ Father's Day

I suppose you could say that my HHH (Handsome Huggable Hubby)and FFF (Fantastic Father of Four) is practicing for the long jump here . . .or would dune jumping be considered a sport? heh. This is my favorite, “I can’t believe I got that shot!” pic. We were out galavanting across the dunes on the southern Oregon coast.

  1. I’m first! That was a good shot.
    Mine is up too.



    Before I was myself you made me, me
    With love and patience, discipline and tears,
    Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

    Allowing me to sail upon my sea,
    Though well within the headlands of your fears.
    Before I was myself you made me, me

    With dreams enough of what I was to be
    And hopes that would be sculpted by the years,
    Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

    Relinquishing your powers gradually
    To let me shape myself among my peers.
    Before I was myself you made me, me,

    And being good and wise, you gracefully
    As dancers when the last sweet cadence nears
    Bit by bit stepped back to set me free.

    For love inspires learning naturally:
    The mind assents to what the heart reveres.
    And so it was through love you made me, me
    By slowly stepping back to set me free.

  3. This may well be the best shot of the day!

  4. That is an amazing “OMG it actually worked out” kind of shot! It’s certainly one of the most interesting I’ve seen so far today.

    Great work!

  5. Jumping makes one sweat so it must be a sport, and he is a dad so this picture is great! Thanks for sharing!
    My photos are up!

  6. Perfect picture and it looks like he’s having a ball!!! Mine’s up

  7. Wow, what a great shot! It turned out so well! It would be my favourite too, if I had anything like it, that is.

  8. I have to comment on this one! First that really is an awesome shot. Great job! Second, I immediately knew that was the sand dunes in Southern Oregon. I haven’t been there since I was a little kid but it’s one of my most favorite places ever!

  9. Great idea. Awesome shot!
    I played. Pam

  10. That IS very cool that you got this shot. It is always hit and miss with me when I try and get an action shot with a digital especially. Usually whatever the person is doing is over by the time the camera snaps.

    Great choice. It looks like he was having a blast!

  11. What a terrific shot – oh to have your timing!
    Mine is up.
    Hope FFF has a fabulous Father’s Day.
    Take care,

  12. Very cool! He looks like he was really having FUN too! Wonderful picture! I can see why it’s a favorite!

  13. I love that shot!! He looks like he was having a great moment being a kid again. Thanks for stopping by my place.

  14. That’s a great shot! The kids and I went camping down at Oregon Dunes last summer, we had a blast too!

  15. That isnt a shot you’d expect to capture – how cool is that. Interesting – perhaps we can pretend he was ridin’ in a dunebuggy and jumped the hill and the dunebuggy ran out without him and left him flying in air. (hahaha!)

  16. how cool! I love it. Gets my vote for best photo!
