30 Days of Happiness, Day 5: A Golden Afternoon

This past weekend we took Charlie out to one of our favorite places. It was his first out-of-town trip. He did a lot of this:

But he did come out of the stroller at lunchtime to hang out.

The rest of the time, Roy and I talked and I took a lot of photos. We went to the Chinese Garden for the first time.

The fish enthusiastically greeted us.

And I made friends with a butterfly.

We visited the museum while we were there.

It contained the creepiest painting ever. This photo doesn't really capture the creepiness well.

I took pictures of Roy

and statues

and flowers.

I used my broken Nifty 50 to take some macros.

I completely overexposed this one because I wasn't paying attention to my camera settings at the time.

I love happy accidents. And I love golden afternoons with my two best guys.
