Where DID this summer go, anyway?

 Sometimes my kids take the batteries from my camera to use in their Xbox remote controls. So, when I attempt to record a lovely trip to a local fair, I end up with 3 total shots before the batteries poop out.
 This situation inevitably leads to much swearing, hair-pulling (theirs; not mine), and threats to confiscate not only their Xbox remote controls but also the television, computer, Nintendo Ds's and anything with any screen in our entire household.
UNfortunately, these threats are impossible to follow through on as they always occur outside of the home and by the time we have left the Fun Family Location, I have relaxed enough to not care quite as much about my lack of photographic evidence of our Fun Family Time.

And so, the cycle continues. They steal the batteries. I hide the batteries. They find the batteries. I end up carrying a useless camera through countless photo ops.

Sounds like me not having an SD card at a priceless Cubs experience.

Well, at least you know what to expect...

At least your heart and head remembers right?

This is why I use my phone a lot to take pictures, instant and my phone is always charged!

Oops!

The fair looks like fun. Ours is next month.

This kind of thing makes me crazy. The upside of being camera-less though is that you are 100% in the moment and not trying to capture it through a window.

Love that first shot!

Nothing like a county or state fair to give you that end of summer feeling, is there?

I finally got keen on this last Christmas and bought each of the boys their own rechargeable batteries and charger... Now I'm the one stealing their batteries... mwuahahahahaha (aka evil laugh)

With all the stories about child abuse by nannies and caretakers that one has been hearing about off late, I couldn't help but install a nanny cam to make sure my kids are safe. I tried GotoCamera's free software, which is easy to set up and even easier to use. They have a free version of their software. However, I upgraded to their Premium service, which costs about $4 a month.
