Pringles sunset

A warm apricot glow finds its way through the trees and into the kitchen window. It catches my eye as I trail upstairs to bed.

I veer into the study, grab my camera and rush out into the warm, light evening – trailing kids behind.

Excited voices and laughter. The kids love leaping out of bed when they hear me running outside on a photographic adventure.

This time they are prepared. They have made a telescope out of an empty Pringles container to see the sunset more clearly.

It’s a good one, our Pringles sunset.

So good – that one is never enough and we just can’t stop (taking photos)!

    Can you imagine when they are all grown up….and they get together, “remember the time we took a pringles can to see the sunset.”

  20. Those are beautiful pictures. I am so jealous of the Pringles! Pringles are not gluten-free, so I can’t bring them in the house or Peter is tempted — TEMPTED — to eat them.

    Sigh….

    So I sneak them when I am over at my parents house.
