I've posted about my family's RV trip - you know, the one they're taking without me? I sent the wee ones with their digital cameras, and they tell me that they're taking a ton of really great pictures. And so am I. I had a blast capturing Mister Man walking in his first Fourth of July Parade. Little Miss is memorialized climbing super high the tree growing in our front yard. They're both captured splashing around and having a blast with friends in the pool.
I'm horrible at actually printing out my photos and putting them in albums. Forget having done it in the past year, I not only haven't done it since before the wee ones were born, I haven't done it since before my husband and I were married. Fortunately, we can share our photos in other ways now - and I do.
Shutterfly is running a contest now through August 12 where you can win all sorts of prizes from the grand prize of a trip for four to the Bahamas with a professional photo shoot to weekly prizes. You even get an instant win prize just for submitting your photo.
Each week has a different theme. Just upload your favorite photo that fits the theme and caption. The themes?

You can enter once per week, and each week five photos will be featured on the Facebook fan page and awarded a $500 gift card on Shutterfly, in addition to the new Lonely Planet travel photography book.
So what do you say? Long live summer!
Don't forget to take a look at the official rules of Shutterfly's Long Live Summer contest.
In the interest of full disclosure, I received a free photobook from Shutterfly in exchange for posting about this contest. I was not compensated, and all opinions remain my own.
