July Outing with Phoebe and Brandon

{In which Phoebe and Brandon act like old people and little kids}

So this was one of the items in my October poll, and it did get enough votes that I chose some photos and processed them. But then I never got around to actually posting them... oops. But here are the photos, at last! (Sorry you had to wait so long, Phoebe!)

(Also, let me know if there's anything in particular you want to see, either from my April Fools update post or the October post. I'm trying to get back into blogging and it'd be nice to have a few starting points. Otherwise it's kind of overwhelming.)

Anyway, way back in July, I went to the National Museum of History with Phoebe and Brandon to see the Picasso exhibit. It was fun; with my laughter and Brandon's voice, we got shushed like 3 times within the first 5 minutes (it was fine once we moved to a different room).

We made fun of a lot of paintings. I love that Picasso's art is so inherently mockable. (Kidding. Sort of. Ok fine, I'm really just not a fan of his style.)

And then afterwards I took random photos of them around the museum grounds because photography wasn't allowed in the exhibit.

So cute, right?

Then Phoebe's uncle took us to get shaved ice. Yum!

After our snack, we went to the Youth Park, which was cool because I'd never been.


And we saw a bunch of old people doing stretches and exercises on this really interesting structure. So of course Phoebe had to jump in.

How is that old guy beating Phoebe at this splits-on-concrete-logs thing?! Crazy.

And then I took a ton of photos of Brandon and Phoebe being super adorable. They're like little kids!

Kind of hard to tell if Phoebe is pushing him off or trying to save him there, haha.

And then we found concrete slides! Since they already joined in on the old people's fun, it'd be remiss of them not to join the little kids, too.

So that was our day. Aren't they super cute??

Oh yeah, and don't forget to let me know what you'd like to see more of!

with love,


  1. haha I have photos of me sliding down the same slide - but I wish I had that shaved ice!!!

  2. awesome! that park is pretty cool. can't wait for my cold to go away & the weather to warm up so i can eat MORE shaved ice! :D
