Pretty Stuff

Isn't it pretty...


I've wanted to take pictures of this for quite a while now.


The colors are so bright and vibrant...


...ever changing...


...the pinks...



...the greens, blues, and purples.





You weren't fooled were you. You knew what it was all along.


When I picked Max and Charlie up after school we stopped at the local car wash on the way home. It's always a fun time. I had stopped at the entrance to talk to the attendant and pay for the service. The kids were screaming at me, begging me, to close my window before going in. Of course that just encouraged me to leave the window down longer than I probably would have. I so love to put some excitement into their lives :) We were never in danger of getting wet.
I remember the love/fear relationship our little kids had with the car washes. The noise and moving brushes/strips that were used would spook them, although they loved going with us to get the car washed. Our oldest son, Rob, used to make up his own words back then when he was 4 or 5 and his word for the car washes was "car-a-bath-pool". We called it that for years.
Go on out and get your cars washed...entertain your kids!

I thought you were experimenting with your alcohol inks!!
I love taking the kids through the car wash too. They have all found it so exciting! Still have two more to take through one though!William & Charlie. Wonder if they will find it as exciting as the others did.
