To Birmingham and Back

August 25, 2013

For several weeks I have been planning a weekend trip to Birmingham to attend and photograph a reception for George and Claire.  I promise you Dan and I have been talking about it for weeks.  Apparently he blocked it out, because on the way to the airport he casually asked, “So, what takes you to Birmingham?”  I explained again about the reception.  He got this strange deer in the headlights looks and replied, “Don’t you usually take the children with you?”

I did take the ‘infant in arms’ as Annie is called on the airplane.  The infants on foot have faired just fine with their capable father.  On Friday they went to the Mall of America and rode the rides.  On Saturday they went to a movie in the morning and then returned to the amusement park and rode more rides.  I just talked to him and they were gearing up to go swimming at a lake.  I am afraid I may not be welcomed back.

In spite of the risk that I may no longer be considered fun, the whirlwind trip to Birmingham was well worth it.  Below: a few snaps.
