Last week, we took a road trip for the Thanksgiving holiday. Less then thirty minutes into our trip, Lilly started saying all that "road trippin'" stuff kids say when they're on the verge of going looney tooney:
Are we there yet?
How much longer until we get to Grandma's?
Where are we? Why is this taking so long?
In an effort to keep Ms. Lilly entertained and ocupado for the remaining hour of the trip, I handed her McHubby's iPhone and told her to play a game of Angry Birds. Lilly quieted down, and James and I turned our attention to the tunes coming from our speakers (LCD Soundsystem) and to the landscape out our windows (mountains). Occasionally, we heard a giggle or two come from the seat behind us. Other than that, our trip was uneventful.
Imagine our surprise when, a couple of days later, we found SEVERAL humorous pictures of Lilly's mug on James' phone! We had been oblivious to her shenanigans! (And the pictures might explain the sporadic bursts of giggling we had heard while cruising the highway.)
This is what you get when you give a five-year-old a camera phone on the ninety minute drive to grandma's house: Road Trip Photo Shoot!
