That's the point isn't it?
There was nothing ordinary about it.
She had waited for 2 years for this day.
She had given up a birthday present and party for it.
I had high hopes for the photographs I would end up with. Some sort of magical sun shinning into the water. Bold colors of my daughter kissing a dolphin. Pure magical photography.
The funny thing is, this was my very favorite. The happiness from being splashed by a dolphin says it all.
In the end it was rainy-ish and overcast in Baltimore and there was no sun to speak of shining down on my daughters magic day in the aquarium. I caught mediocre photos of the happiest girl on earth.
"it was my best day ever!!!!"
And in the end...that is truly, truly ALL THAT MATTERS!
