I like free stuff

We went up to Logan this weekend, because...HOORAY!!! We sold our trailer. It was kind of sad to know it's no longer our trailer, but seeing as we no longer live there....it's good to not have to worry about it anymore. Anyway, while we were caruising the mall, I purposely had us walk past Kiddie Kandids, because I happen to know a secret. At Kiddid Kandids, if the photographers don't have anything to do, they will stand outside the store, and offer to take pictures of your child, and in return give you a free picture. No gimmicks, no requirements to buy anything. I had a friend that worked there, and said it helps them get practice, and keep them from being bored. So, yeah, my plan was to walk past at an "unbusy" time so I could get a free picture of Steven. Of course, they were unbusy, so the lady asked if she could take some pictures of our cute little man. Of course, this was just before lunch time, with our son desperately needing a nap...but alas we got a couple good shots. : ) It was worth it for free, and spur of the moment!
Playing with the ladder. (Before he tried to eat it. He didn't like the fact that we said no) This is the picture we ended up getting, because it was the biggest smile we could get out of him. It's quite tender, too, because you can see the glisten of the tear in his eye from a slight crying bout. Trying to make friends with Mr. Frog. Now that I look at it...I think this one is my favorite.

Hooray for the free Kiddie Kandids picture trick! We did that too. Too bad there is no Kiddie Kandids in Ephraim. Too bad there is no ANYTHING in Ephraim. (Except dear old WalMart!)
