Flower Photo Shoot (April 2)

On our way to the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Rachel spotted some pretty flowers and ran off to see them close up. She was so excited about them and so cute that I probably took over a dozen pictures of her and her cheesy grin.

I only wish she was wearing a cuter outfit. I hadn’t realized when I packed the onesie that it was getting too small for her. Nor had I intended it to end up with chocolate stains all down the front. Those resulted from a terrific temper tantrum she threw in a bakery while we were grabbing some breakfast.

A kind worker was flustering around Rachel offering her this and that, trying to placate her. Nothing really worked, but in the end we ended up with a few varieties of cookies for free. Rachel latched onto a chocolate filled puffy pastry and wouldn’t let go. She got chocolate everywhere and her screaming didn’t stop. Tears and chocolate were dripping all over. Luckily I was armed with wet wipes, so things could have been a lot worse. Still, these pictures would have been so much better with a nicer outfit on…maybe I can photoshop a change of clothes on her.

Even in her messy, too-small onesie, I think she’s cuter than words.

  4. I don't think her clothes look that bad at all. I was imagining really terrible chocolate stains, and I think she is much less messy than she could have been. And so adorable.
