Emma and Dad


Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek



Sooo what do we do when we just jump out for a bit and see what we can find?

Yeah. Emma and dad likes to go out and just look to see what we can find. The trip often takes us to Petco since it's just about the cheapest zoo you can go to, there is always one nearby and Emma loves it.

In the dogs section we look at all the toys that you can get for the little ones and big ones. Emma likes pointing out the different toys and then I have to guess what kind of a dog it's for.

At the back of the store they have the really interesting animals. These are the ones Emma really likes (well other than the birds, fish, dogs, guniea pigs and so on).

And this little guy... yep we have been looking at it every single time we go up there. It's such a cute little snake and it's pink too :-)

Just for convenience there are step stools around the store and well that's a help since we have to look at every single pet in the store. Even though it's sounds like a lot of running around in "just" that one store it's fun :-)

When we don't go to Petco and we are out driving sometimes we tend to wander off. Not moms favorite thing but when we see a vehicle like this... well gotta take a look.

Look dad look dad... shadow is here... Now this probably makes most sense to the ones that have seen "Bear in the big blue house". But hey if you get it you get ;-)

Driving home through the battlefield... I guess this is the point where the camera goes just about anywhere and it's perfectly normal to snap pictures while driving...

Sometimes when we are "just" home and sitting outside we like to watch the sky and the clouds and come up with different things they look like. On good days we will even see a couple of airplanes which in Emmas book is coming from the airshow or going to it.


Hope you enjoyed the little trip around with Emma and dad :-)

Petco! It's so much like a field trip for my kiddos.

Love the last 2 shots!

MamaGeek said...

Those last 2 shots are pure eye candy. And I'm with Bren, a trip to Petco is ALWAYS a field trip! I hope she gets one of everything.

Beautiful shots, as always.

LOVE the shadow shot, and love the Bear in the Big Blue House reference.

And you're right. Petco IS the cheapest zoo around.

Bren: cheapest field trip you can get these days. and hey when the kids love it...

mamageek: thank you. it was two shots I wasn't too sure of. But sometimes all the photo tech should just be left as tech and well just get what you see.

cecily r: Shadows are just fun. I guess it takes a child to point it out to you sometimes...

the apron queen: fun days are good days. I'm on my way to check out that one.

Jacki said...

Oh you have such a beautiful daughter! I bet your wife loves when you take her out for "Dad & Emma" trips... ;-)

Peter Dyrholm said...

Jacki: Why thank you. You know I think she reminds me of her mother and she is the most beautiful woman of all!!!

Why I did have a good time out with Emma and dad! I love Emma's dress. Sounds like a fun day.

Fun trips. The stretch hummer is pretty cool. Cheap entertainment.

Indrani said...

Beautiful shots. Daddy-daughter trips are most fun moments for all daughters. I see how my daughters enjoy when they are out with their father in their not so frequent trips.

Thanks for popping in to mine. :)

K-Girl just loves trips to the pet store. We have about 5 different ones that are not too far to drive for a fun time out. :) Luckily we have enough of a zoo at home to allow any new purchases. Great pictures.
