A Day in Our Life

Last week was the first I'd heard of the Day in the Life meme, and I knew right away I wanted to try it. I love taking photos, but I'm as amateur as they come, so an excuse to play with my new camera was more than welcome.

I decided to use Saturday, January 29, 2011 as my shooting day, hoping on a non-school day I'd have more chance of remembering to take pictures every hour. I did miss a few, and there were circumstances that made me a bit off schedule a few times, but in the end this really does capture our day.

Since it was Saturday I slept in a little.  The first shot I remembered to take was...

6:35 am
Little Warrior comes to the couch prepared for quiet time with Mama

7:32 am
frying up farm eggs for breakfast

8:39 am
breakfast for chickies

9:42 am
making bread

10:46 am
braiding pipe cleaners into The Princess' hair for her show
(taken by Farmer Boy)

{In the 11:30 time frame there was too much drama getting
The Princess to Drama for me to even think of photos.
Around here we do theater on and off stage}

12:43 pm
waiting for the show to start
musical adaptation of Through the Looking Glass

{we were asked not to publish photos of the show due to copyright issues}

2:10 pm
backstage between acts, minus her Mad Hatter hat

3:07 pm
cast party after the show ~ chessmen cookies, naturally!

4:52 pm
driving home (taken by The Princess)

around 5:30 pm
playing on twitter

around 6:30 pm
dinner ~ pesto chicken with whole wheat penne and veggies

7:45 pm 
playing around in the kitchen with
miniature-plastic-armor-wearing Farmer Boy

8:21 pm
story time on the couch with the older two
we've come full circle ~ see the blanket from the first picture?

9:36 pm
time for bed!

And that's a wrap!
