You Capture: ??

The theme this week is photographer's choice.

My sister-in-law gave birth to a sweet new baby boy on Saturday. She sent her older daughter, Bridget, to Indianapolis with my mother-in-law for the week. Bridget is Clark's age and they get along oh-so-well. We've been doing lots of fun-kiddie-cousin stuff together.

(Also, this-just-in-I-overuse-dashes.)

Here's a peek at our visit to one of Clark's very favorite places, Monkey Joe's.

And this is what happens when grandma tries to share her soda with a two year old boy.

Phase one-- We are sharing! What a nice sip! This tastes good and bubbly!

Phase two-- This is mine now, yes? I own this bubbly delicious pop and will sit on this animal chair and relax and imbibe.

Phase three-- Uh, mom? Gaga totally just took my pop and acted like it was hers!

I can't wait to go check out what everyone else chose this week over at I Should Be Folding Laundry.

  9. Looks like fun- I love it that Clark has on a Monkey Joe's shirt- ha! And the drink story is really funny. I would do the same thing- I LOVE coke. I feel like a goof because I didn't do You Capture this week. Oh well.

    And BTW- Alice looks so big and little girl like and completely adorable!

  22. ah a new baby to hold, i love those new, fresh, little bugs. Jumpy Jump houses are the best! Have you ever gone to fair oaks farm? They have the best air trampoline ever! It's 3 times more bouncy than a trampoline.
