Santa Barbara Revisited

"Boy-Child#2 didn't like the maraschino cherry from his drink AT ALL. Can you tell?" ~ Dorothy Z.

Not only am I snatching pics from my sister that she took of our trip to Santa Barbara, but I'm also stealing her quotes. I love this picture. Boy-Child#2 is a ham and is always mugging for the camera [I've seriously considered getting him into television and movies because he's a natural. He just doesn't take direction very well but maybe that's just from me]; but this photo catches him when no one is looking and the genuine expression on his face sent me straight to the floor laughing. It's like he just ate something that tasted like feet. Which, coincidentally, is the same face he made when he took his first bite of sushi.

We call this face "eating a poop sandwich."

It is definitely a falling to the floor laughing gem. Give him more!

Dude,

How am I supposed to look at Boy-Child #2's face in the photo when my eyes keep moving to your chest?

XOXOXO

You've gotta love a guy who wears his heart on his sleeve.

How about the caption for what his mother is thinking, "I gave up all taste responsibility once he gave up the boob."

My kids and nephews all love those cherrys. I couldn't get enough of them when I was a kid. My daughter can even tie a stem in her mouth, or so she says.

Had you not told me that it was a red dye #2 cherry....(in which I can't blame him for not liking either)...I first thought it was that he just found out there was not Easter Bunny.

I love that she caught that exact moment in time. What a face!

Denise said...

Great "kodak moment", ya got there! and one that I agree with...ooh...maraschino cherries...no...uh-uh...NOT!

So...have you ever been mistaken for Lisa Kurdrow? 'Cause I'm thinking...at a glance...when the lights are low (and the "girls" are 'out there')...after a shot of tequila or two (by the person looking...or maybe you...whichever!)...you ARE Phoebe!!
i'm just saying.....

That face could make some major buckaroos in the movies!

We're off to Santa Barbara for the day tomorrow! :)
