Photo Essay: What I Did On My Summer Vacation

Alrighty peeps. Yes, I know I have been away for a bit, but we went on vacation to NS. And I couldn’t very well post about it, because it would be all OHAI THERE INTERNETS WE WENT ON HOLIDAY NOBODY IS HOME COME AND ROB US BLIND.

But we are home NOW, and just in time for a Saturday photo post… which is brought to you today by Stinkerbelle and her LeapPad camera!

We drove down to NS, and on the ride, That Girl used her LeapPad to take pictures. OH YES SHE DID. OVER 2000 OF THEM. We took a look at them once we got home and OMG LAUGHED OUR ASSES OFF.

And so, I decided to give you a sampling for your viewing pleasure! YOU’RE WELCOME.

Now, of course we went to visit Grammy and Grandad…

And to hang out on the deck and swim in the pool…

But the journey is half the fun! And there was so much to see, and so we let Stinkerbelle document it all.

As one would expect, there were some picturesque shots of scenery:

But unfortunately, she couldn’t remember a lot of the time to lift up the LeapPad to be sure she was pointing it out the window completely…

…until the scenery became mostly shots of clouds and the tops of trees…

…or, fairly frequently, bits of the car interior.

Or, sometimes, her left foot…

…and for a little variety… her right foot.

But never mind! There were things to see, so many exciting things! Like, SIGNS!

lf_photo_001398

LOTS AND LOTS OF SIGNS.

And, occasionally, the backs of signs.

This particular sign apparently required a 25-plus-shot pictorial essay.

(I’m assuming you can get the gist of it from this one shot.)

But there were so many more things besides signs to see on this trip!

Like… Gas stations!

lf_photo_002422

Gas pumps! FRENCH gas pumps! MON DIEU!

lf_photo_001874

Overpasses!

lf_photo_002504

Street lights! Also French!

lf_photo_002183

MIscellaneous cars!

lf_photo_001294

The backs of trucks!

lf_photo_001392

Construction cones!

lf_photo_001700

Hydro wires!

lf_photo_002210

Miscellaneous unidentifiable but apparently very close things!

lf_photo_002319

And, we couldn’t quite get her to understand that you have to hold the camera STILL until AFTER it clicks. So we got a lot of blurs. But occasionally, some strangely bendy things:

lf_photo_002433

lf_photo_001989

lf_photo_001610

And, when all else failed, she contented herself with taking selfies:

lf_photo_002581

Or creating art:

(I have no explanation for that last one. I call it “Darth Duck”.)

Hope your summer is going this well! And, perhaps slightly less blurry and bendy and with less car interior.

One thought on “Photo Essay: What I Did On My Summer Vacation

  1. I was about That Girl’s age when we first drove to the East Coast. The photo essay is pretty much how I remember it.
