{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, 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?

: 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!


Fits perfectly..don't ya think?

Scary looking alligator with sharp problem..John will save me.

I'll just hold his mouth shut.


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.

  2. Ah, super sweet! What a cool thing for your library to offer. Happy, celebratory day!
