I need another camera

Right? Like a hole in the head, you ask? Well, when trying to decide between the snapshot pocket camera lovingly dubbed the piece of garbage that is so small it spends most of its trashy life misplaced anyway, and the big pro beasts that knock my kids in the head if they stand too close, I often opt for no camera. The cobbler's kids and the shoes adage comes to mind.

Today was one of those days I wished I could find even trashcam. I shot some real estate in the morning while Troy got the kids to work on their school. By the time I got back home, they were well on their way to being done. I packed up lunch and dinner, and when they were finished we drove down to Zilker Park.

They paid their own way on a mini train ride, spent an hour at the playscape, another hour on the grassy hillside playing some make believe nature game and talking to a very nice woman who acted so gracious as to care what they were telling her (plus she shared snacks). Then another hour in the Barton Creek aquifer science exhibit from which I had to drag them away to go to the open late Wednesday night at the Austin Children's Museum.

While none of those photos are really gallery worthy, they certainly make the blog much more attractive. They certainly will help my children look back fondly on their childood. And they certainly help my family blog look a lot more fun than your family blog. Not that we're competing. Or at least, you're not.
