I finally charged up my camera battery after contemplating the event for almost an entire week.
We headed to the park and I was bound and determined to get a picture of my children:
standing in the same frame
looking in the same direction.
I called this picture a winner.
Since that unenviable task was complete, I headed over to Little Miss Camera Ham.
She smiled and posed.
Even cuter when she kissed that cute baby in the mirror.
And, kiss she did.
Henry, not much a poser.
Or a smiler.
But, unbeknownst to him, I snapped this sweet picture of him watching the big kids play.
Then it was time to hunt for dinosaurs.
Can you tell he is walking very slowly and very quietly as not to disturb any prehistoric creatures?
Liza was good with this plan because she found some mud to play in and her dress turned out to be quite camouflaging amongst the decomposing leaves and pine needles.
No dinosaur is going to get this girl wearing her earth tone autumn dress.
Still hunting and getting a little perturbed at the lack of dinosaurs in our local park.
A dinosaur egg.
This was a good find because Henry didn't really want to find a big dinosaur anyway.
Nice dinosaur stick!
Oooh, a "real" dinosaur egg!
Not a "pretend" one like that that previous find.
Me: Anything in the egg, Henry?
Henry: Jus dis money.
After that we chased this abnormally slow moving and tolerant of young children butterfly for at least 10 minutes.
Then, it was time to go home.
But, the best part of it all is that we go to the park daily so we can recreate out big adventure any old time.
Well....except for the cash and the slow moving butterfly.
That was pretty special!
