This layout turned out a bit too pink (who even knew that was possible). Oh well...sometimes that happens. There is a whole lot of doodling and "stitching;" I thought it might help take away from how pink it turned out. (Not so sure about that...this is definitely a layout that will benefit from some pictures.) It's kind of fitting that I am not 100% happy with this layout because it's actually for some pictures of a zoo trip that didn't quite turn out like I had hoped. Nicole and I went to the zoo last month and instead of wanting to look at the amazing animals (baby orangoutangs playing, elephants bathing and lions lounging), she wanted to see cows and ducks. (COWS AND DUCKS??? We probably could have found some cows and ducks locally without trekking to the zoo.) The climax of our outing was a temper tantrum on the train. We never even got to ride the train because someone "couldn't want to ride trains." Evidently two year olds are not among the most reasonable of beings. I tell myself (almost daily) that one day her stubbornness will pay off - it's just hard on me right now. :)
This was the response I got to "Can you smile for Mommy?"
