Photo Catch Up

Someday I will get around to posting about Halloween, but that day is not today. Instead a little photo catch up. I recently found out how to get photos from my phone to my computer. No this did not end up being some magical trick, and no this is not a new phone, I guess I just actually wanted to do it today. So pretty random, put just wanted to post them.

(*Warning - these are photos from my phone, which is not great. So please disregard the quality as I have)

This is just a random picture from before my sister moved. And its not a great picture in anyway other than I think it accurately depicts what its like when the fam is over and how only 3 kids can still make it seem like 10. And I miss my sister, so I just wanted to put it up.

I took this picture several years ago while waiting in a parking lot. This delivery van pulls up and parks, and this was his idea of an acceptable parking job. No there are not any cars around that would have prevented him from pulling out a little and getting in there correctly. He just didn't care. And it just amazed me that not only is he taking up two spots, he is like 4 feet away from the top of the spot, therefore sticking out into the driving area that same 4 feet.

Parking Issue II. This was after having sat through a work safety meeting where we were talking about defensive driving and among other things the city's parking policy. Found it a little ironic to come out and see how the safety instructor had parked. Notice, the lines are going the opposite direction.

This was from my cousin Beth's son's birthday party where I forgot to take my camera. They did an awesome activity where they made these little cars. I had seen a play last year based on Go Dog Go and they actually had the same concept for the cars and I always have wanted to make one for Will. They are banana boxes with straps attached so they can wear them. They had paper plates on the sides for wheels, circles in the front for lights, streamers in the back for tailpipe fire, and party horns for the horn. Very creative.

And a Halloween preview, cause honestly who knows if that will ever happen. This year we had the kids draw on paper what they wanted the pumpkins to look like and then the mommies helped carve them out. Of course Will was not satisfied with just a Jack-O-Lantern and so trucks needed to be added. So I had him drawn one truck on the back and I did the other, and then it had officially been Willized.

I would have been the person to raise my hand and call the inspector out on his parking had I known. ;)

I totally thought that was Sophie at first. That really is an old picture.

I love Will's truck pumpkin.

I'm with your sister; I would've called that safety guy out. I hate bad parkers. I hate bad drivers maybe a little worse. Keep blogging. I don't get enough of the Leaf Girl blog lately.
