Riding an elephant!
That is worth at least 20 THRILL points!
Yeah, we totally rocked the Judy Moody movie – Not so Bummer Summer – like genuine-and-for-real.
Okay, so maybe I liked it a little more than the kids (kinda), but it is such a fun movie. Judy Moody is adorable. I love the idea of thrill points; or going beyond your comfort zone. Learning new things (and being a little scared to try), but mostly, just the trying part. All it takes is getting out there.
Doing. Being. Becoming. Experiencing.
Why yes, I think I do have a thing for -ings. It must come from my be-ing. Heh.
Our family adventured to the Renaissance festival Memorial Day Weekend. It was HOT. Hotter than hot. Like we should have gone a month ago too hot. But, we made the most of our fun and I have sooooo many pictures from our start-to-summer weekend (and good-bye for a month to Sydney). I hope to be sharing more stories from that day with you.
The elephant ride shots really captured my attention and took me back to that day. From the four-year old in the front to the eighteen-year old in the back, with the seven and seventeen-year old in between – all of them – LOVED riding the elephant. Considering it was a miserable wait for a short ride, not to mention a little pricey, it was worth every penny just to see their faces.
Memories like these make me glad I get to be a photographer, I just love their expressions, even the elephant.
I tried to narrow down the choices to post, but I couldn’t. You’ll just have to ride along with them. My camera battery almost died. I was so lucky to get these.
And that was it.
The ride ended. But it totally made the summer not a bummer!
Now, I’ll have to come up with plan to keep those thrill points coming. 🙂 We wouldn’t want to have a boring summer end and starting in July the little girls will be with us for the entire month.
If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.
