4th picture 4th folder. And lulu carter.

Clare in Australia, from Lulu Carter, tagged me too!

I get excited to meet cool people and find fun new blogs. And I love hers. She takes fantastic pictures, makes bright & beautiful crafty things, and like I said, lives in Australia. 'nuf said. Cool.

So here's the 4th picture in my 4th folder.

Ripley's Aquarium in the Smokies. We went last summer.

Conan and I want our kids to do stuff. Not sit at home just because there's 5 of them. By myself, not so much. But when Conan has a chance, we'll go. Somewhere. We stay smart about it though. Like the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade...probably won't try it. ever.

I always expect a kid to wander off, that way I'm obsessingly paying attention. Because let's face it, there really aren't any peepers on the back of my head. Contrary to popular belief.

And we're full believers in restraints. We prefer backpacks and strollers. "Hands on the cart" every two minutes or so.

And I tag Corrie, Sharstin, Cassy, and a bitty witt.

When you said Clair from Australia, I thought you were talking bout Claire from Lost, and I was pumped! Then I realized that she was ficticious. Too bad. Love that jelly fish pick. For real!

we took our 6 to the Macy's Parade. But we kinda cheated. My parents used to keep an apartment on 6th Ave and my dad's office was on the second floor along the parade route. We watched form inside while eating a catered breakfast.

But the other 9 days we did it all ourselves. ANd even made my snobby mom use the subway.

The kids were 3 years to 12 years old at the time.

But, I have no desire to do it again! (and my parents don't have that apt. anymore)
