I guess my creativity appears on the weekends. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get even more done. Or maybe just start putting together some page kits for next Saturday's crop.

Anyway, when I was going through my CKU pictures and narrowing them down from 3 pages to 1 page, I had to eliminate this picture. But I did still like it. At the time an idea popped into my head, so I sketched it out and then tonight I put this together. Slightly different from my original idea, but I'm happy with how it came out. Chris doesn't like my big waves "because there aren't big dramatic waves in Boston harbor." Yes, you read that correctly. Those are dramatic waves.

And the story behind the picture. I was in one of my classes at CKU when I heard someone mention that the Constitution was passing us. I guess her husband was at the hotel and had seen it and called her. Considering the Consititution isn't normally out for a pleasure cruise at night through eel infested waters (come on, let's hear your guesses of what that's from) I knew I needed to take a picture of it.

Oooh, I like! I like it - ALOT!

And hey Boston Harbor might not have "dramatic" waves but you be a kid and have to learn to swim there when boats are going by... now those are dramatic!

He's starting to sound like Andrew :)

Nope, no CE for me. Decided to save my pennies for now. Which, apparently, saved me a lot of stress with trying to register!

ok, I'm not even going to bother answering your so-called mystery quote because its so totally obvious. Especially if you used to live with a 4 year old who watched the movie almost very day. But I suppose I had it practically memorized before then anyway.
