Spring Break 2006 – the three boys and mom

One of the reasons why I enjoy the Weekly Photo Challenge, beside the obvious, is the challenge of challenging the challenge!  Make sense?  Please let me explain…  For the scale challenge, I was going to line up Jordan’s stuffed Barney dolls.  He has four – starting with the tallest being 2 foot Barney and the smallest being a Beanie Baby Barney, which is about 4″ or so.  Simple demonstration of scale….

BUT

I stumbled upon the photo above and thought – “Aha! This one is perfect!  Yes, the difference in scale is obvious, however, there is more to this photo than which meets the eye.  For instance, a little family in a larger than life city.  However, the most poignant is the man (tall bald guy) who made his living owning a small sign manufacturing business – standing beneath what is considered to be one of the most quintessential signs in the sign industry.

      Vegas was Bill’s fave place to fly off to – and he gave that love to Jordan.
