LONG weekend

But, not long enough... Thursday afternoon's fiasco was only a prelude to Friday and Saturday. It's getting to the time of year that not only are the parents/seniors panicking about the fact that they need to make yearbook deadlines, but also the time of year where they get more picky about what they are paying for. NOT that they aren't getting terrific portraits - 'cause Gary's work is excellent - but, more they didn't realize how expensive senior portraits are. They start looking for anything they can try to get for free.

But, yesterday was fun. Dad and I took the kids out to the large playground at Thompson Park for some fun & photos. We spent about 2 hours at the playground, then took a few photos at the stone circle structure near the playground before moving on to the zoo. I ended up with 193 photos of my own from yesterday, and will be downloading Dad's in just a few minutes.

I have to finish getting ready for work so here are the 3 LOs I finished after getting home yesterday:

You guys had SOOOOO much fun today at the playground! I loved watching you run around, slide, swing, and use your imaginations!

Pictures are SO expensive these days, and I thought it was bad when *I* was in high school! But ya gotta think about it in terms of quality and the fact that it is a once in a lifetime moment and it is worth it ;) ((HUGS)) to you.
