give & take

I gave the kids some time in Powell's & Starbucks in exchange for them taking time with me at Portland Art Museum. We were all perfectly delighted. (Check out the quote on Mason's cocoa cup; he decided to keep it, God bless him).

[The birds in the window photo was shot by Paige; Powell's bookstore, the streetcar sign, the grate and the dresser in the window were shot by Mason]

Seems like a pretty equal exchange to me. I heartily believe in bribing my kids, when needed. It is in the best interest of all involved, no?

I've always wanted to go to Powell's. Now I feel like I've been.

Mason has an eye for photography. Nice job! And I love the birds. Paige did a fine shot of them!

I loved that dresser shot!

It looks like a great day--was Stu at home working on yet another home improvement project?

I think this "Powells" I keep hearing about may end up being the main influence I move to Portland under.

all the pictures are cool...but that dresser is amazing!

The slide show is so cool! They did well with the photography, too.

I forgot to say I can't wait till my kids can go browse in a bookstore with me. We do go to the library, but Mr. Blue either plays with the toys or runs away from me!

What a wonderful slide show!! The pictures are great!!

I'm so jealous...I'm waiting (not so patiently) for the youngest to be able to go out like that and not cause trouble/knock anything over/spill something/piss me off.
I'll happen soon enough...until then, I'll just go through your photos again and live vicariously for a bit. okay? thanks.
