Palacio Real en Madrid España

Here's a little nugget of what soon will become another photoblog. I am currently vacationing in Madrid and have enjoyed taking many pictures. I have uploaded a few to my Spain Photo Set on Flickr if you want to take a peek. You will noticed that those pictures will need a bit of a touch up. They are raw images which I haven't even had time to change the names to useful flickr tags.

Pictured here is one of the many palaces I've seen. This one is literally about 3-4 blocks away from my hotel. This one is called - Palacio Real.

Bowling Ball Close-up

So many color so many weights too choose from. I stuck with the twelve pound one. It didn't help my game much though, but I still had fun :)

Splashing Fun

These past couple of days have been scorchingly hot! Thank goodness we have a swimming pool. What could have been painfully unbearable heat turned out to be playful fun. At my nephew's birthday party guest had the option to be refreshed by the yummy water.

Boat Cruising on Lake Michigan

I wish I had a boat, actually I would love to own and know how drive a speed boat or a sail boat. I went sailing a couple of times with people that knew what they were doing. I haven't been on a non tourist boat in a while, maybe someday I'll purchase my own.

Millennium Park Flowers

I was looking through my flickr photos today and came across this picture I took last year. It caught my attention - one because I didn't recall taking this picture and second because of the pretty flowers.

MMMmm Candy

I remember when I was a kid, going to the candy shop after school was something I looked forward to. I saved my allowance and money I earned on errands in order to get a full brown bag of candy, which at that time were incredibly cheaper then they are now.

Spring Weeds

This weekend was finally warm enough for me to feel inspired to stop and smell.. eh look at the flowers. Although dandelions are considered weeds, it was nice to finally see some color and beauty to a previously muddy and bare ground.

Coldplay Concert

I had given my sister a ticket to see Coldplay in concert this past Christmas. This Friday they finally came to town and we went. I myself love Coldplay so her gift was also a gift for myself :) They did not dissapoint, Chris Martin and band rocked out. I only wish the pics had come out better to reflect how awesome the show truly was. Here are a few pictures that came out ok.
