It's exciting to be told you're a winner!

Yep, that's what happened to me yesterday.

I came upstairs to check my email and I had a letter from FamilyFun Magazine telling me I was a first place winner in a contest they sponsored!

This summer as I sat in the doctor's office with my pneumonia, I picked up an issue to read. There was this contest to write a story about a memorable summer moment. You could send up to 3 photographs. I instantly thought about Thalia and taking her to see the redwoods and find a banana slug.

Here's the winning photograph:This adorable photo of Thalia and my story will appear in the June, 2008 issue. Also...they are sending me a Nikon Coolpix camera!

Maybe this will be our 15 minutes of fame?
