{She's Got Big Ideas}

Thursday, March 31, 2011

And they can be annoying sometimes.
Especially for my husband.
A week or so ago while the boys were on their way home from Menard's I called and asked Eric
 to stop and buy me a tripod for my camera. And no, I don't know what kind of tripod,
 just get me one, please and thank you. I had an idea.
I had bought the kids each a new kite a couple days earlier and I thought it would be a perfect
 day for flying the kites AND trying to get a few family pictures of all of us.
Hmmmm...did you hear that? Kite flying and family photos. Hahahahaha.
I should have thought that one through better. If it's windy enough to fly a kite it just might 
be too windy for family pictures.
Sometimes I just kind of just go with my ideas and don't always think them through real well. 
Yep, that's me.

But that's okay. Just look at my little family.
I love the one of Eric holding both of the kids. He won't be able to do that for much longer, ya know?
Oh and are you wondering where I am in these family pictures?
Well, come to find out you need a little practice figuring out the tripod first...
and then there was the whole wind thing.
 I looked like an actual drowned rat...hahahhaa. Oh well.

Happy Thursday and last day of March, y'all!
Today we are meeting my two best girlfriends for lunch, a mom and kids lunch, but tomorrow 
night it's all about a Girl's Night Out! Wahhhooo! I am definitely looking forward to that.
Hope everyone has a great day!

  12. Awww- these are darling shots :D I love that you included Dad. I don't think I have ever seen him in these parts!! Yeah, tripod on a windy day might not be a good idea. I have one that is a bit flimsy and I rarely use it. I have been told that it is worth investing in a really good one - some day! *sigh*
