Say Cheese!

Today was picture day, a friend of mine went in with me and we did our portraits with our kids together in order to get a great price on a package. I don't order school photos from Ezra's school, the idea of ordering something before you see it doesn't suit me at all! Our appointment was pushed behind over 1 hour, there were at minimum 50 people, rudeness, parents who didn’t even watch their kids, all in a room the size of your average fast food restaurant. One of the main photography cameras broke, the cd burner broke, and the lights in the photography rooms allowed a comfy temperature of at least 78degrees!! This + toddlers who don’t want to sit still + toddlers who are hungry + toddlers who are sleepy = pandemonium!! Jesse lost it during the last 5 min, and we ended up waiting in the car and having a snack while they printed our photos. Ezra did his best to help out, but there was a point of no return when hunger and over stimulation and general boredom set in. We spent a total of 3 hours there, and ended up with some great photos. Of course I’m humoring myself with this post, and we survived just fine – it was not life altering. I’m not sure that I can say the same for some of the other parents I saw and heard as we were leaving HA!!

Today I am thankful for people with a sense of humor.

Funny you should post about picture day. Today is picture day at the boys' school, and we actually get to see the proofs before we buy. We bought the boys matching sweaters, but . . . Baeden fell into the bookcase at school on Friday and has a huge bruise on his forehead. It never fails. Ha!
