a day in iphone pics...

a friend or neighbor in the blogging world, if you will, does "a week in iphone pics" every (wouldn't you know it) week.  i thought i'd put a little spin on it and document just one day from last week.  in all actuality, it was just a coincidence that these are iphone pics.  it was all i had at the time, and they turned out pretty cute...all the more reason to share them here with you.  it was a brisk, sunny (gasp!) day in portland, or so we decided to pack the kids up in the ride and head south.  andy needed to purchase some new duds and i have been salivating over the fact 1) there is an h and m downtown and 2) there are kids clothes in said h and m...thus, i had to take the opportunity even though there were two less than excited children along for the ride.  the two little ones actually did really good...this is due, in part, to the fact that all they wanted to do was ride the train (the max, portland's version of the light rail).  so we, like any intellectual parent would do, used it as bribery and voila!  well-mannered children :)
here are just a few snapshots of the anticipation and joy that is waiting for and sitting in a "train" for all of one stop.  gotta love kids.

side note-these little dudes really made me stop and appreciate my life.  if there is this much happiness in waiting for a free train, what is there to complain about?  answer: the five pounds i need to lose by next month...doh!

I knew I needed to take my kids to downtown SLC for some reason--TRAX! Free trains would make them flip! Maybe we'll go and just ride around all day--thanks for the inspiration!

Looks so familiar, I feel I was just there! ;) Thanks again for the most fun lunch date I've had for as long as I can remember! p.s. your kids are the cutest and I love the iphone pics. Wish my camera phone took pics like that. :-)
