But yesterday took a turn for the better. It started with flowers, progressed to geese and chickens and other assorted farm animals, sailed through chatting with another (random) family over dinner, and truly got rocking at, of all places, Chuck E. Cheese. Usually going to Chuck E. Cheese makes me as happy as when I hit my funnybone, but darned if we didn't have a good time, Mikko and I (with Alrik along for the ride).
I didn't take pictures of the whole day, but I did get a few phone shots of the middle, scenic portion. The part at Flower World, with ducks and all.
Can you tell he was transfixed by water that day?
I think he knew he needed his own centering.
Given the drizzly weather, these feather hats were an astute fashion choice.
I like the forced perspective making it look like this goose is pecking my baby's head while I blithely take pictures. When instead he is eating a dirty shoe while I blithely take pictures.
For National Poetry Month, I'm giving away !!!SEVEN!!! copies of my book, Poetry of a Hobo Mama. I invite you to enter and enjoy!
