Summer Smiles Photo Contest – Calling all Cute Kids

Now,  if we are honest about it,  we all know that kids are not all smiles when traveling. However, on any vacation there are always those wonderful moments when your child is totally enthralled by whatever they are experiencing.  Maybe it was meeting Cinderalla at Disneyland, running through a fountain at the park, or flying through the trees on a zipline.  We are looking for photos that are a celebration of why families love to travel together.  Go ahead, send in your summer photos of your cuties smiling from ear to ear in total vacation bliss.

All entries must be submitted by Sept 4, 2009 11:59am PST.  No limit on number of entries.

The winning entry will receive a free Blurb photo book

    My grandsons loved walking along the national seashore at their nana’ house. Lots of things to see, surf sounds, and animals to see both in and out of the tidal pools.

    Good timing! I just uploaded this photo (It’s on the main article, not the review, but I wrote both, does that count?):

    Here is my submission, my favorite pics of my son are from this trip and this is when I discovered my love of photography. I have beautiful memories from Gulf Shores.

    I don’t know if it’s a great photo but it was a super classic Dad moment. Much like her riding a bike without training wheels this is fearless Sam (7) hopping on a board for the first time. Her big brother Spenser (10) has had many huge sports moments already and she is his no.1 cheerleader; but this was a time for her father and brother on the sidelines cheering her on…

    Here’s a couple of pics from our recent trip to the Texas State Aquarium. SO FUN! I think it was our 3rd or 4th visit.
