Better Left Untaken

Let me set this up: Six kids-less parents livin' the life in Victoria. We took a trip to visit Butchart Gardens where they have these cool totem poles. The idea was to create our own totem pole and get a photo with the real one in the background. And then everyone who saw our photo would say, "aren't those the funnest, most creative group of friends their ever was . . . ." and then they would trail off wishing they were us. Once we kinda got our concept we grabbed the first english speaking tourist we could find to snap our shot. And then we waited while she tried to figure out what button took the picture and what button might start a nuclear war. And this is what we got . . .

First off, look how our "photographer" cut off the totem pole. Now it looks like Amy just gave birth to a blind 33 year old woman with the Rockettes rooting her on!

Ummm, fun... er, creative. Wish I were you. Uh-huh, that's it.

Lol! But, really, it's too bad she didn't get the concept and complete the picture correctly with the real totem. That might have helped... a little. ;)
