A Sunday Outing
Normally our Sunday afternoons are spent eating my father-in-law's amazing homemade pizza over at Ish's parents house. Yesterday there was no pizza planned so we decided to spend our afternoon at Longwood Gardens--an easy trip to decide on as we have a membership. I had all these hopes of taking pictures of the children in and among the tulips which were at their peak. Apparently everyone else and their brother had the same idea and there was no way I was going to try to take pictures of my children amongst the hordes of tulip-gazers.
Although we did visit the tulips, we spent most of our time in less crowded areas. Both kids had a blast running around and enjoying being outside in the beautiful spring weather. Little Ish was very excited to visit the Chimes Tower which he has renamed Gandalf's Tower; he was especially excited about ringing the bell at the top of the tower.
As a side note, I spied more than one stranger taking a photo of Lily. I didn't bother saying anything because I would have had to chase the offenders down . I just find it odd that people who don't know me or my family will have a picture of my daughter on their camera. I am not sure that I care about it, but am I right in finding that to be particularly strange?
