Second half of the assignment to shoot a DITL with our camera.  The goal was to post 50-60 images from your day of shooting, I think I narrowed mine down to 49.  I didn’t get to shoot as much as I would have liked to, like when we went to lunch at Panera (and the ones from there were with my cell phone because it was so crowded and I was not able to leave Mackenzie alone for a second to even try and capture many images from this moment out.)

We started our day out heading to Mothering by Nature because they were holding an event to make banner for Garth, a little boy who swallowed 2 magnets.  He is going in for surgery and they wanted to decorate his room with a home made banner of well wishes….

We then headed to pick up Mackenzie to spend the day with her.  When we arrived she was in her room playing and she didn’t know we were on our way there.  I opened the door and said, “Mackenzie, where are you?”  As soon as she walked out the expression on her face just said it all, she is so sweet!!

Our first stop was Barnes and Nobles.  Mackenzie loves books and the last time we went here she had a blast and I’m pretty sure she did again.  She played with trains, looked at books, played with toys and even made a stop at Starbucks for a cookie and strawberry-banana smoothie.

I did not pick her up as fast as she would have liked me to. She sat down and started yelling UP UP to me and flapping her arm

Panera for lunch.  Brocolli cheese soup and bread for everyone.

We headed to Walmart to get Auntie’s hair trimmed and while we were there we visited the arcade.  When Aunti was getting her hair done we received a text message that our neighbor we babysit for fell on the playground at school and broke his arm and was in the ER.  Justin & Rachel wanted to get Dacian a get well card, gift and balloon. (I did not get a picture of them looking for cards or his gift..sigh)

We then headed home for a quick nap before Papa got home.
