Don't 'cha just love summertime?
Lovely children playing in the yard - laughing and skipping.
Well, that's the way summertime is in my head.
In reality......the beautiful weather part is still there but the lovely children part - not so much.
A few days ago I had a house full of neighborhood children (which is not the problem - yet) but whenever you get the girls playing here at the same time the boys are playing here THAT becomes the problem.
Little girls get all "squealy" and the boys just have to aggrevate the situation.
Fast forward a little bit and here's the story.....
The girls had gone outside to play and talk secrets and my intelligent son came up with the idea to sneak up on them with the video portion of my camera and tape the girls.
Yea, can you see the problem with this?
Needless to say, this leads to lots of yelling and squealing and chasing through the yard.
As all of this was taking place, one of the little girls (not mine) decided it would be a good idea to TOSS my camera across the yard.
Yes, I said TOSS, THROW, CHUCK my cute little point and shoot across the yard.
Now, here comes my son trying to retrieve the camera from said girl - which then leads to more running & chasing.
Can you guess what happens next?
Ok, I'll tell you......She falls down. With my favorite on the go camera in her cute little 10 year old hands.
Would you like to see the result of this little escapade?
Yep, she's dead.
She won't even turn on anymore.
Her lens is all jammed and scraped up.
I don't think reconstructive surgery would help - she's a goner.
Did I mention that she was only 6 months old?
She was just getting started.
We had only truely gotten to know each other when she was robbed from me.
Let's just say - Mama was mad!
