Things I would have captured if I had my camera

We just got back from our week on the road and of course I took my camera with me. But did I remember to use it...of course not. So in lieu of sharing wonderfully mood evoking photographs I will have to resort to a list of Top Ten Things I would share had I thought to pull my lonely camera from its case.

1. Sweet cousin snuggles in the morning over sugary bowls of Cinnamon Toast Crunch

2. Enough cooing and smiles from S to melt your heart in 10 seconds flat

3. Sisters chatting into the wee hours of the night about nothing and everything all at once

4. Max the dog posting guard under the kid table and scoring a giant hot dog (I'm thinking this may NOT have been dropped on accident)

5. Cousins splashing in the new 15' swimming pool in the backyard

6. Listening to The Pastor's repetitive questioning "did I buy too big of a pool" (and YES you did but remember this is America the Land of Excess)

7. The look on J's face when I bought her the Princess Ariel swimming toy she has been coveting ALL summer at our neighborhood pool

8. Littlest Petshops hanging precariously upside down from the rim of Mimi's metal (and highly magnetic) coffee table

9. Gigantic dinosaur bones at Morrill Hall and the amazing remains of the Whooly Mammoth

10. The living museum the cousins reenacted in the basement where they posed like the dead animals we viewed earlier at the museum. I especially like the dead cat that died while rolling over in its sleep.

There you have it!
