The tallest plants we saw all day.
Thanks goes to Hannah for organizing this delicious lunch so that we wouldn't have to be envious of what was in everybody's personal lunches.
There were more photographers around than myself - some
with better ideas. I copied this idea, but the result was
blurry and therefore not suitable for posting:).
He must not want to take leftover brownies home.
He isn't easily discouraged, is he?
"Hannah, surely you want them. After all, we brought them especially for you since you requested a chocolate dessert."
Hannah wracks her brain for a polite refusal.
Food on the bus?!! You should have seen the sign in the bus:
"If you must eat on the bus, don't leave crumbs, clean up
after yourself, etc..."
The tomboys among us are revealed!
Everyone had been behaving impeccably until..... the wall was spotted.
Olivia, one of my great piano students.
Grace, another wonderful student!
Of course, they were both models of lady-like behavior:-)!
There were many cameras around that day. I can think of
six right off. We counted how many we thought the boys
would have had on their trip, and we decided that we girls had probably out done them!
Even if you weren't particularly interested in them (the brochures),
you could fit in by making a pretense:).
The whispering bench.
Because of the bench's parabolic curve.....
...Charity was able to hear what Faith whispered.
Now and then we would catch sight of the other groups, on the
other side a fountain, across a bed of flowers, etc...
I'm not sure, but I think I promised to give Candace credit for that
photo. I better would just in case.
Cheerful and unsophisticated - those are the adjectives I
came up with for these flowers.
(I'm almost positive I promised her credit for this picture.)
The ballroom. I could more easily imagine it a ballroom if
that lady in the jeans weren't standing there: you ought to have a fancy gown on to be in a room like that.
than an outdoor model train?! Mr. Raine could fuss all he
wanted about not staying on schedule; Dad was going to enjoy those trains:-).
I am having to give entirely too much credit to other photographers
today;-)! Emma Raine took this awesome picture!
Mr. Oberholtzer: lover of books, therefore lover of paper,
therefore lover of papyrus!
Dad(puzzled): "That just doesn't look right."
Mr. Raine: "I was sure this was our location."
But here is Mr. Oberholtzer to the rescue:
"We are...right...... there!!!"
