The pictures in my last post had some new pictures I had taken of the kids last week.
I decided not to work on Thursday since I had Kids Night Out Saturday night. It was so nice out that I thought I would get the kids dressed in the morning and go to a few spots I had seen around town that would make for cool pics.
I hurried up and made a headband for Harper to wear (yeah I made that, wha-what!!) Can I just tell you how all sorts of out of control her hair is these days? It is….. in a major way. It won’t be long before it’s a full blown mullet…..can’t tell you how excited that makes me (sarcasm people, SARCASM).
Soooooo we drive to the first place and I get the kids to stand by each other and then Harper sees a bug…..and freaks out.
Sooooo we drive to the next stop, get the kids to stand next to each other, Harper hears a truck go by……..and freaks out.
We move to the other side of that house where there is less traffic, I get the kids to stand by each other, Harper hears a train in the distance…………and freaks out.
You can see the trend here can’t you? So I got a few pictures of Harper crying, and quite a few good ones of Paxton. Not sure how I managed that since I had a little monkey screaming at my feet and trying to climb up my leg. Not to mention that I was an idiot and wore a baseball cap, well it’s IMPOSSIBLE to use my camera with a hat on because the bill gets in the way. So I had to turn my hat BACKWARDS!!
Can you picture this? Me rockin the backward hat, squatting on the ground and even falling over a few times because Harper was still trying to climb up me, all the while screaming at Pax: “smile!” “look at the camera!” “no a REAL smile, you look like you are pooping!” It’s ok if you laugh, I am sure anyone watching us was totally laughing, AND pointing, AND possibly taping it for youtube.
I gave up, I threw in the towel, the kids won. We went to the park.
I got a couple of cute pictures there, Harper was a little more in her element…………..until a fire truck went by……..and well you can guess what happened next. SIGH.
Here are the rest of the pics from that eventful day, if you didn’t see the other pics I took scroll down to the post before this one (and shame on you, just kidding, sort of):
see that tiny speck on the corner of the brick that Pax is staring at? Yeah that’s the bug that Harper freaked out about. Terrifying isn’t it?
