Summer Vacation Photo Winners!
How did you spend your summer vacation?
Raising Yuma asked, and readers responded! In fact, 30 of you submitted a photo or two of your summertime activities – and for that, we are very grateful!
However, there can be only two winners this time around.
First place – a gift card to Lotus Day Spa – went to Alison Howell, who submitted a photo of her son, Trevar, in San Diego.
“Trevar was excited to see the water,” Howell noted.
Second place, a movie bucket to Main Street Cinemas, went to Michelle Bucsko Collum, for a photo of her two children in Hawaii.
The children, ages 4 and almost 2, were mesmerized by the turtles swimming in the pond, Bucsko Collum said.
Congratulations to our winners!
We had lots of other terrific entries as well, so we decided to share a few honorable mentions with our readers.
Danielle Miranda shared a photo of her two-year-old's first time down a big slide.
Jessica Coggins snapped a great shot of her husband test-driving a Slip N Slide for their daughters and nephews.
Keeping with the water theme, Treasure Lasseigne submitted a photo of her daughter, Adalyn Noelle, playing in the pool with her princess float.
Michelle Moll caught her daughter Ella, 3, getting wet in a rare Yuma storm. “Rain smells funny,” Ella said.
Salvatore Oliverio went fishing in a tube for the first time during his staycation in Yuma, and snared a two- to three-pound bass.
And last but not least, Eva Maria Bukovinszky visited Bryce Canyon, Utah, while moving from Colorado to Yuma.
“Bryce Canyon, Utah, was one of the incredible places I have visited and stayed at for a couple of days on my way to Yuma. During hiking I got my instrument (duduk) out and practiced for a short time,” Bukovinszky said.
Thanks again to everyone for participating!
