#1day12pics June 2014

This Saturday was my second #1day12pics, a monthly instagram photo get-together where we each take twelve photos over the course of a single day (you could probably have figure that out for yourself). Anyway, here’s another Saturday-in-the-life of Lauren Hairston, food blogger. Peeling back the curtain…

Naturally, there’s going to be food. On the left I’m making a cup of tea with Taylors of Harrogate Scottish Breakfast and my Old King Cole mug from the Wichita Arm Museum (WAM!). Don’t you just love gold on black? Reminds me of Biba. On the right is our lunch–Sausage, Bean, and Bacon Bake–which is really a Full English in a baking tin. Delicious.

Paul spent the morning getting his baby ready to fly to England for the Farnborough Air Show. I spent the morning taking a bubble bath and catching up on my fun reading.

Busy Beavers: That’s Paul sorting our plastics at the recycling center and, on the right, the actual beaver that we got to pet at the Kansas Wildlife Exhibit in Riverside Park. There’s talk of closing down the exhibit, which houses animals who can’t be returned to the wild, because of budget shortfalls. It only costs $70,000 per year to run and it’s a great part of the city. If you’re in Wichita, you should (a) go check it out and (b) write to your city councilman.

These last four photos are all from Riverside Park, as well. With the pagoda in the park and the half-timbered apartment buildings on the other side of the Arkansas River, Riverside Park is a bit like a tiny Epcot Center!

I’ve really enjoyed participating in #1day12pics because it forces me to look around for lots of things to photograph in the space of a single day, so I get out and explore. I want to know how you spend your Saturdays. #1day12pics is usually the first Saturday of the month; are you in for July?

    Just popping by from the #1day12pics link up to say hello! Great pics from the day- and you’re so right, doing the challenge really encourages you to actually get out and do something or even find the beauty in the everyday surroundings around you. Look forward to seeing Julys :). Hollie

    This is so FUN! Love all the photos (but I think the tub pic is the best)!

      I just have to be careful not to drop the phone in the bathwater…

    Great pics. I also love the fact you have to search photos out sometimes, it makes me pay more attention.
