{aubrey} & sweet summertime

On a hot sunny day in June, I took {aubrey} to Gantz Park for surprise Father's Day pictures. All dolled up in pig tails, a pink fluffy skirt, and hi top Chuck Taylors the snapshots began. Twenty minutes into the photo shoot there were no smiles, the pink fluffy skirt was sopping wet from sitting in the creek, and the sun was draining every ounce of energy we had. As an attempt for {aubrey} to "be good", we went to get an ice cream cone with 3 scoops and sprinkles. Trying to get {aubrey} into the car, I dropped all 3 scoops in the car seat. In a sheer panic to get her and the ice cream in one piece and without melting back to the park, I picked up the ice cream and stuck it back on the cone...
a bundle of stress: $0
a skirt filled w/a pail of water: $0
3 scoops of ice cream: $3.27
& loads of photos to tell a story that lasts a lifetime: priceless
