{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}..Celebrating our Patience

Good things come to those who wait. And, in our case, this good thing was free admittance to our local children's museum. Our town just opened up a children's museum a bit over a year ago. We hadn't been yet...because..well..we can't afford it. So I was wicked excited (did I just reveal my New England roots by using the word wicked?) when the library started offering free passes to the museum.

 So, I put a hold on a pass and waited...and waited...and waited..for SEVEN months. And, then yesterday I was rather surprised to FINALLY get an email that our pass was ready..and we only had 3 days to pick it up and then 7 days to use it.

So, today..it just happened to work out that we had NOTHING going on (a rare day for us) so I hopped on over to the library, picked up the pass and off to the museum we went. So, I'm joining this post up with Clan Donaldson Theme: Thursday Celebration because we celebrated that we FINALLY got to go (after hearing all our friends rave about it for the past year). Plus..I managed to get a somewhat, quarter-way decent family  just-the-kids portrait..using a few (okay..maybe just one) of Cari's tips..but it should count for something..right?


 Like this:

   

Ooops..sorry. Wrong family. 

 How about this?

:  

Okay..so only 2 out of 4 kids are looking at the camera.
Let's try this one.

:
Kinda cute I think! 
 or this
 

They're not all looking at the camera..but it's still pretty cute in my admittedly biased opinion.

{pretty and happy}


It was a pretty day..and they were so happy bouncing down this fake hill with fake grass.


Pretty girls doing pretty crafts which make them happy.


They look happy here!

{funny}


Fits perfectly..don't ya think?


Scary looking alligator with sharp teeth..no problem..John will save me.


I'll just hold his mouth shut.

{Real}


Really, I just like to pull John's hair.


Really cute.


John is working really hard.


Overall, it was a really fun time!

p.s. Please excuse the low-quality photos.  I don't have a fancy-schmancy camera.  I took these with our Ipod, which is HORRIBLE at taking pictures.

  1. Looks like so much fun, and your writing is fun, too! I think you did a great job with the family photos, I liked the striped sunshine from the fence.
