Taking pictures, or not

We went to Disney World with our daughter and family week before last, and have been laughing ever since at the number of pictures taken -- I uploaded over 300 to Kodak Gallery and Angela uploaded almost 500 to Snapfish. That's a lot of smiling.
The kids did get sick of smiling and lining up for "just one more." There are just way too many pictures opportunities at all the parks, to say nothing of our resort, pool, Boardwalk, etc. Consequently, there are some pictures where the smiles are not so evident.
Although everyone was pretty cool with Mickey and the other characters we met. And we met most of them.
I'm sitting at work listening to the mp3 and this song came up. I think John has it right on:

I'm writing you to
catch you up on places I've been
And you have this letter
you probably got excited, but there's nothing else inside it
didn't have a camera by my side this time
hoping I would see the world through both my eyes
maybe I will tell you all about it when I'm
in the mood to lose my way with words
TODAY skies are painted colors of a cowboy cliche'
And its strange how clouds that look like mountains in the sky
are next to mountains anyway
Didn't have a camera by my side this time
Hoping I would see the world through both my eyes
Maybe I will tell you all about it when I'm
in the mood to lose my way
but let me say
You should have seen that sunrise with your own eyes
it brought me back to life
You'll be with me next time I go outside
NO more 3x5's
I Guess you had to be there
I Guess you had to be with me
Today I finally overcame
tryin' to fit the world inside a picture frame
Maybe I will tell you all about it when I'm in the mood to
lose my way but let me say
You should have seen that sunrise with your own eyes
it brought me back to life
You'll be with me next time I go outside
no more 3x5's
just no more 3x5's . (John Mayer, 3x5)
