Childhood Frozen In Time

We recently went to Disneyland and on our way out of the park, spotted two older ladies chatting just inside a shop surrounded by silhouettes. Having just been thinking to myself in recent weeks that I'd like to have something like this made of the boys, I talked them into checking the place out with me. A sign on the wall read 'Silhouettes in one minute or less!' Curious how much such a thing would cost at 'the happiest place on Earth," one of the ladies said it would only be $7 per child. Sold!

Last week, we made our way over to Venice Beach and eye spied a man making face sculptures of various people plopping down in his lawn chair. Well, an hour later, we walked away with yet another unique and timeless treasure... a sculpture of both boys.
