And another thing......

I've decided that the youtube that I posted a couple of posts down, the one about the pink balloons....... It is an illustration of the parable of the mother who lovingly plans a special outing for her family and saves her money and anticipates it with great joy and gets all things ready and tucks in the camera, only to discover as they embark that everyone in the family is surly and some didn't want to come and some had better things to do and some don't want to wear what they are wearing and some think some are driving too fast and .........well, no one wants a picture taken on this outing and the mother tries to tuck that into her heart and to instead watch for unexpected fun and times to laugh.

You're not speaking from personal experience are you?

Unplanned outings are almost always more fun. ArtCricket's comment made me laugh.
