My Son's Photo is Kristina's Inspiration Challenge

I almost fell off my chair this morning when I saw Kristina's Tweet about her latest color inspiration challenge. I clicked on her link and boom...I see my own little robot-loving Cutie Pie! What a treat. That makes my weekend! Hope you all have a chance to create something for the challenge by Wednesday, May 27 at 7 PM MT.

On April 11th, 2008, we took a Friday day trip up to San Francisco to take Kalino to the Exploratorium and to celebrate our wedding anniversary a day early. We laughed because Kalino kept calling San Francisco "Francis Cisco". Kalino loved the museum! He was 4 years old at the time. This kid has been in love with robots since he was 2 years old. Daily, he draws robots and creates robots with Legos and Kid K'Nex. He loved this robot pencil sharpener from the gift shop. We had to buy it.

After leaving the Exploratorium, we drove across the Golden Gate Bridge to take photos. The day was warm and there was no fog....amazing! I love the Golden Gate Bridge and all the vista points near the bridge. Kalino had his new robot friend with him the entire time. I sent Kristina the photo last month since it had colors we are familiar with using. Thanks for using my photo, Kristina!

Have a great day everyone.

I was excited for you! Congrats. Your son is a doll! I was actually hoping for primary colors this time, because I have a robot set that I've been itching to use. So thanks for not only the colors that I wanted, but a robot, too! :)
