Keep the "Kodak Moments" Coming!

Tierra del Fuego Patagonia, Argentina...the end of the world!

Answers.yahoo.com defines a "Kodak Moment" as "a heartwarming moment where a picture would save that special memory of the event.  


Our family has had the privilege of taking several overseas trips which complemented our homeschool curriculum.  Each year, our favorite photo becomes our Christmas greeting.
Whistler, BC



Here are a few of them:
Near the Pyramids and Spinx Cairo, Egypt...3 months before the Revolution!
Sunrise on Mt Sinai






Heading Home...tired puppies!



Which is your favorite...and why?


Here are a couple of links to our adventures: South America  Into the Promised Land

    1. It is a privilege, Darlene, and we realize that. So, for those who can't get out and experience the trip for themselves, we bring the trip back to them via blog and photos!

  2. Vicki - I really enjoyed the picture of you & Dan watching the sunrise on Mt. Sinai. Beautiful! The one of winter in BC is a great family picture too. You are all so photogenic! What wonderful memories these will be for your children when they are grown up! What I especially like about your pictures is that they capture so many different expressions of your family on vacation - happy, silly, exhausted, awed. It's much more enjoyable than just the standard group photo in front of a "scenic spot". Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks for your observations, Daisy...we really feel blessed to have these opportunities! I can't decide which is my favorite...I love each in its own way. By the way, it was Olivia who was watching the sunrise with Dan...a special moment.

  7. The term "Kodak moment" is almost becoming antiquated, but these photos certainly qualify. I'm a sucker for sunrises and sunsets so the Mt Sinai is a favorite for me.
