So week 2 was easy…we spent a day down at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and of course there was SO much to photograph. Normally I don’t bring my “real” camera – but because I’m somewhat committed to this project, I thought it’d be worth the extra hassle. It probably was.(These crazy camera phones take such good pictures that even though it’s a “snapshot” it’s still perfect for everyday life!) Good news is – I didn’t drop the camera. I think that was my husband’s biggest concern – that I’d get overly excited about something and forget the camera. (He’s not way off in his assumption….it’s a valid concern!)
So here are WAY more than just one picture – an overview of our day.
At the Lion King Show…. I love how each of my kids’ personalities shows through. Olive with her excited eyes, Ella soaking in every moment of the show….and sweet Micah, plugging his ears because it’s just a little too much. He’s so much like me.
Sweet Micah. He’s 9 years old and growing into such a handsome young man.Still plugs his ears, just like he has since he could jam those chubby fingers in as a baby!
Ella Bella – 7 years old and while both the older kids are rather toothless, Ella has really embraced it. About 90% of the pictures I take of her right now include the pose on the right….What on earth IS this?!?
Olive Juice…Silly little three year old.
THIS man….this man I adore.
Olive is by far the easiest to photograph. She’s way slower than the other two and once she’s climbed up on something she can’t get away very fast…
I love how Micah takes care of his littlest sister. He’s quite protective of both of them – and quick to fight with them, don’t get me wrong! – but Olive especially he looks over. Ella and daddy had gone off on a “twisting spinning ride” and the three of us had NO interest in it. (OK seriously, Olive would have loved it but was too short…) And so, Micah and I took her on her FAVORITE ride, the “Dinosaur-Dumbo” ride! (Called that because it’s just like the Dumbo ride – her favorite – but with dinosaurs instead!!
