Time off - having health issues

I haven't been able to post much. I have been having health problems. I was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease called Dermatomyositis. Between my health and raising 2 kids I have been busy. I start on medication soon (I have to quit nursing first). Hopefully I will be feeling better and have more time to post soon. Thanks to those of you who have taken time to look at my photos.

Friday My Town Shoot Out-Power

I am sorry but I did not make this assignment. We came back from vacation with a tree branch on our roof and this week has just been a little crazy. If I don't make this one up I will definitely post for next weeks topic, Relaxation.

Friday My Town Shoot Out-Outdoor Food

Sorry I only have a few photos for this weeks theme.
I am on vacation in Virginia right now so I haven't had much time.
I'll post some vacation pictures in awhile though.

This top photo is of a food vendor outside of The Smithsonian.

This is my husbands soft shelled crab sandwich.

Friday My Town Shoot Out-Textures

Now I am finally catching up. I don't have many photos which is disappointing because I love macro photography but there will be plenty in the future. These were all taken at the park by the zoo.

Friday My Town Shoot Out-Celebrate Life

All of these picture are older as I didn't have time to go out and take pictures. I must apologize for running behind. I tried to upload them last week and was having issues and I haven't had time to try again until today.

My husband and I at Galveston with our 2 pugs. We are at a giftshop called Murdochs which was destroyed during Hurricane Ike. They are rebuilding it though and I am hoping it will be finished next year.

The petting zoo at the library. This made me smile.

A view of downtown from the ferris wheel.

Friday My Town Shoot Out-Rainbows

The Farmer's Market is on Airline Dr. which is about 10 minutes from my house. You can buy buckets of fresh fruits and vegetables for $2 to $5. 

There were buckets of brightly colored brooms everywhere. I think I would like  purple broom for my house.
The pinatas were stunning with there bright colored streamers swaying in the wind.

The next few photos were taken of my daughter at the Children's Museum over the years. The last thing we do before we leave is go to the face painting area so she can transform herself into a wild cat.

These were also taken at the Children's Museum in the infant toddler area. There are large pillars full of toys like a humongous I Spy book. These are some close up shots...

This is my son playing with a gigantic light bright board at the Children's Museum. I would have loved one of these as a child.
The rest of the pictures are of my son playing in the infant area at the Children's Museum.

Can you find ROY G BIV in the last one?
Thanks for taking the time to look at my pictures. I hope you enjoyed them!
