or is she?!?
please take note of the difference in demeanor in these pics.
notice how relaxed she looks riding in the boat at probably 40+mph and then the pure fear while riding in the safety of the car at a snails pace. now her eyes are closed in the boat pic but who could keep them open going that fast?!? i tell you she had a great time riding the boat and never seemed scared; so relaxed, her ankles are crossed. well that was last saturday...then on wednesday or so the girls and i took the car to the car wash. (we had quite a family adventure on the dirt "roads" on the way home from the lake last weekend and my car was past filthy. the less than lovely water here in "the country" leaves horrible water spots on the car and we have gone lazy with drive thru car washes! i'd never have imagined but i digress.) the car wash before this one is the first time i remember her crying; it was so out of left field! this time she actually started fussing as we pulled in the parking lot! such a funny little girl...she cried throughout the car wash, even after i tried to explain it by putting it in terms of her bubble bath, but yet in a boat racing down the river she feels right at home!
capturing pictures like this are why i like to have a camera at my disposal at all times! then having these cameras at the ready i am taking LOTS of pictures. recently, i asked jay if he thought the girls would think it odd that we have so many pictures of hadley eating (given the absence of the milk allergy it seems i am photographing her eating something at least every few days) but he thought they would wonder why i have so many stinking pictures regardless of my point. surely not is all i have to say; they are my girls after all!
