I ♥ Faces - Pouting Please!


I have been waiting for this week over at I ♥ Faces forever! The Boy is really working us over with attitude and independence and the pouting face is one I have grown VERY familiar with (and though I don't love it or the "NO!" that usually accompanies it, my camera has grown to love it!) I had my grimace all picked out a couple weeks back, but we're just returning from a family trip to the Texas Gulf Coast and while I was uploading my photos tonight this one caught my eye and had my husband and I in stitches! The Baby was eager to submerge in the surf like a shark, The Boy was having no part of the crashing waves and chose a high perch and a high and mighty pose to accompany his distaste for the ocean tides...
KIDS ENTRY:




Keeping along the beach theme, we have no pets, but we LOVE animals! We took in the Texas State Aquarium for a couple of hours on Saturday, and I honestly could have spent my entire $13.95 admission price just standing in the jelly fish room. There were about 6 tanks featuring different varieties, each glowing in his own black-lit wonderland and I have already informed my husband that if we DO get a pet, it will be a tank full of these insanely beautiful creatures. So, NO people, this is not MY jellyfish, but I wish it were!
PETS ENTRY:


Check back for more of our holdiday pics in a few days, I have a billion I want to share! In the meantime, hop on over to I ♥ Faces and check out what is sure to be a very cute week of pouting participants!

OMG! The pouting photo is TERRIFIC! What a great captured moment. The little perch, hands on hips, the hair blowing. Even without the pout it would be an awesome photo!!! Great job!

Wow, what a stance from your son! :) Lips, hand position, haughty head position...tyrant? Dictator? Toddler? Great picture, can't wait to see the others form your journey! And the jellyfish are magnificent, beautifully contrasted with the black background. Lovely!
