Exploring new locales

I'm taking a quick break from all the scrappy sharing to share some family pictures. Well, not really FAMILY pictures because not all of us are in them. But there still ones of our family. nevermind....I'm not making sense.

Since we weren't allow to go back to the Y last Tues. because the Y workers mistook spit up for actual throw up, McClain, Sarah Kate and I decided we'd hang around downtown to see what new photo shoot locales were to be found.

First we started out at Rembrandts because everyone needs hot chocolate and a slice of zucchini bread before they strike off in search of that perfect photo location.

She thought she was big stuff getting to drink out of a coffee cup! lol! I've really enjoyed spending time with her lately. Since she's the quieter of the two girls, it's nice to sit and talk just the two of us. Well, I guess technically there were three of us, but he doesn't count yet since all he can add to the conversation is "sna, sna" when he wants more snack.

When we finished our hot chocolate,
we struck off to explore and see what we could find.

While she may be good at talking, SK's NOT so good at smiling for the camera. She'd rather do more exploring! lol! So I got mostly fake smiles from her. But then, what else is new?

Finally we ended up close to our church (because I had a meeting there later in the morning) and I quickly snapped this one, which happens to be my favorite of the day.

And finally a non-fake smile. She really does love her brother so there was nothing to fake.
