crop happens…

Mopey, Dopey and Fountain Girl

I heard about this new shopping center recently and talked Greg into checking it out last Sunday. It’s right at the lake, and they have fountains, a lighthouse, even a small stage. Mostly we just walked around the fountains and and along the lake, and didn’t really check out the stores that were there. We did walk into the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and came out with a box of chocolates. They’re pretty good (but pricey!!), and not nearly as good as Godiva. They had some caramel apples, too, and Melissa really wanted one. Greg didn’t buy her one because a) we would have had to get Sara one, too, and I know she would have taken a few bites and be “stuffed”, and b) $5 a piece seemed a little expensive for a caramel apple. Melissa got mad, and was following way behind us on the way back to the fountain, dragging her feet and crying!!

So here’s Mopey…

… and Dopey (hiding from the camera… had to stick his head in his shirt after the kids took his hat away)

And of course Fountain Girl. I’m surprised she didn’t fall/jump in!

    Greg cracks me up! I can’t believe he does that. Steve just gives me a “are you done yet” look. Imagine what our grandkids are going to think of them years down the road. “Grandma, why does Grandpa always have his face in his shirt?” and “Grammy, why does Grandpappy always look so silly?”

    Oh and I was really hoping the crying and pouting ended soon. I’m sorry to hear it lasts for years.

  6. Ahhhhh! The joys of raising girls! 🙂
    I think the one phrase that comes out of my mouth the most is, “Quit being a drama queen!”
    I started taking photos of my six year old with “the face” on, and now that she knows how it looks, I see a lot less of it. 😉

  7. Lucky you! Mine don’t care.. they make faces on purpose just to “ruin” the picture. Of course there are the options of running away and hiding, too. I think I need to threaten with duct tape and rope! 😉
