We went to Burlington on Saturday, specifically to the Echo Center. A 15 minute ferry ride in the middle of the hour+ drive satisfied Sean’s road trip itch without aggravating the girls’ road trip boredom, being a wishy-washy weekend planning mom, I just wanted everyone to be happy.
Here I am struggling with the idea of a ferry ride in a cast (translation: large body of water, one good arm, three kids, inability to save everyone should the ferry sink. Hi, neurotic much?) Sean thought my panic was hysterical.
Once safely across Champlain I wanted a shot of the girls outside of the Echo Center, seemed so fun!
Eh, I suppose they could have looked more miserable and forlorn, not sure how…
Then there was the cool little nook they found to sneak peeks at the turtles, which in person looked exciting and magical, and in pictures looks creepy and depressing.
The tower tube of bubbles, which delighted them and made me smile with pride, but in the picture looks like some sort of Vegas phallus signaling a futuristic Chippendales show.
A sweet play romp on boulders on Church Street, captured on film to remind us all of the day, colored by a grassroots pro-Nader and anti-Obama table.
And no preamble here, just a creepy dude. I like the Sox, but no, just no.
And here I am frolicking with the big girls while random be-shaded guy approaches looking as if he might whisk Fin away.
This last one is a teaser for a video soon to be posted. Any caption ideas?
"Hold the nuts?"
Eh… been a long week and it is only monday.
Your cast is pretty in pink! 🙂
Small furry woodland creatures and their nuts, I'm squirrel-y for nuts, they're MY nuts! Don't come any closer or the nut dies!
Yikes. I got nothin', sorry. 🙂
Great pics though.
That really is a very creepy dude. Yikes.
just a squirrel tryin to get a nut 🙂
we used to say that all the time in college. not sure why actually. was there a song maybe?
I'm getting a Clark Ken vibe from that last shot.
He may look like a mild-mannered graphic designer, but…It's a chipmunk! It's a squirrel! No, wait, it's Super Nut!
Meh. I'm already in my pyjamas. My right brain is off.
Love your commentary. Sorry the photos didn't turn out so great.
Caption: How do you like my nuts?
Sorry, it's all I got.
Amanda that is a song…we said that too! Funny. I also think that would be a great caption.
Did anyone notice that guys cute dog?
And, Amanda…are you sure you just had a baby! Shooooot, you look fabulous.
hands off my nuts!
Geez, that's NOT a bad picture. I could show you some doozies. BUt I won't.
Ah, the nutty pun-ness of that shirt, eh?
Nevermind all the other stuff, lady – you look AMAZING!
Hee hee — those photos are great! I love the forlorn kids.
Back Offa My Nuts?
The picture of the girls outside the museum is awesome.
You can really rock a cast, though. Seriously.
The cast was cute and sassy, but by yesterday it was nasty, stinky and its removal was a happy, happy thing indeed. Thanks for the totally unexpected yet delicious commentary on my, ahem, shape. You put a spring in a mama's step.
"Play with your own nuts."
What does it say about me, then, that I loved the bubble tower?
Looks like you had so much fun. And you're already so thin after having Fin!
