A little over a year ago,
for my 21st birthday Mr. B bought me a new camera.
We took a road trip to Hilton Head to visit his parents.
What else are you supposed to do with a new camera and 7 hours in the car?
He played along.
6 hours and 200 songs 10 minutes and 2 songs into this trip,
he may have been regretting buying me this present.
Ben asked for the Flip HD video camera for his birthday this year.
We may have been a little surprised when we opened it.
Ben didn't just get any kind of Flip from his parents.
He got a Flip that will never be mistaken for another's.
A Flip that looks like Mr. B's eye is the lens.
A Flip that screams "Hello Ms. J, look at your face taking up the majority of the front".
A Flip that will remind us of what
we I (and Mr. B's mouth) used to look like in the years to come as we tape our children's milestones.
I am not sure why Mr. B asked for a video camera.
We have nothing to tape.
We do have a couple road trips planned.
I won't complain.
