About 4 months ago we discovered the museum had a real "old fashioned" photobooth, with black and white photos! But, sadly it wasn't working. And so began my weekly calls to see if they had fixed it. I had gotten used to the museum operator's dry/distant "NO, it's not fixed", only to hear this week. "Yes, it works." What!? I could hardly believe it.
And, so the next morning we rushed on over to see if it was really true. One of our sheets didn't turn out (though we did get a refund.) So the photobooth isn't completely reliable. But, still well worth it...just be sure to call first! (Thanks to my wonderful little partners, who humor me, and get equally excited about my silly little trips.)
As far a winter days go, this was a beautiful one. Quite cold (18 degrees) but lots of sunshine, blue sky, and glittery trees from last nights ice and snow. But no matter how lovely it all was I would happily trade it for a summer day. For those of you who are like me and would rather be lying on a beach somewhere, I suggest viewing these three photographs for a bit of sunshine , summer , and warmth.
Finally, I have scanned the party pictures that were taken with the Barbie polaroid we borrowed from N.J. who was sad to see how much film we had used, and wondered why she wasn't in any of the pictures (sorry, honey we sent you out to with the Grandmas for the night.) If you missed the party or just want to relive all the fun, the rest of the photos are here.
A special thanks to those people who took pictures of me...so many events go by where I am just behind the camera. It was fun to let everyone else play with the polaroid too!
Happy New Year! I am a few days late but what else is new...
Our holidays were mixed with fun, family, and sick kids, (lots and lots of sick kids) making me extra happy that we are all starting the new year off healthy. I will be busy catching up on orders for the rest of the week. But, I hope to get through all of my pictures from Christmas, our party, and the new year sooner than later. A little December photo recap coming soon. For now, I have added the photograph above to my Etsy shop as a notecard. Enjoy!
