all i wanted

It was the last day of school.
All I wanted was a nice, celebratory trip to the ice cream shop with my family.
We would sit at a little metal table outside under a colorful awning.
I would snap pictures of my children enjoying their ice cream, while capturing their beautiful, sparkling eyes.
The sun was going down in the perfect spot and it would be lovely.

(Insert sound of a record scratching).

Here's the way it actually happened.

Two minutes and $13.25 later...

Here's Livia on a stroll with daddy. Look how tiny she is!

Poor sis took a tumble and what do I see in the backgroud? Seriously guys??!!!


Someone was elated that the school year was over, but I can't quite remember who.

I love the Portrait Innovations sign in the background. I wonder if they have a shutter speed fast enough to stop motion.
Portrait Innovate THIS!

Judging from the picture above, I didn't see this coming.

I guess that's just some good old-fashioned karma for you.

Drew is actually my most photogenic child. Yes, really. You wouldn't know it from these pictures.

So I didn't get the pictures I had invisioned, but we had a great evening.

Let summer vacation begin!!!
