i can't have nice stuff

i remember a certain father yelling throughout the house, "this is why we can't have nice stuff...because you bust stuff."  we would scatter and laugh hysterically.  now i must admit, he was saying it with humor in voice but he was dead serious.

and i am dead serious.  i can't have nice technology because i just break it.  my iphone  - submerged in water.  done.  my camera - dropped on cobblestone today at phipps conservatory.  finished.  i'll show the pictures i took right before it crashed.  i'm really bummed because the shutter will no longer close and it will no longer turn off but will not take a picture.  i'm really really bummed because i just started to take regular pictures of the girls.  what is a mom/family blog without pictures?!?!  

so my dear husband reads this once in awhile.  maybe he will see my desperate plea for an indestructible camera so i can continue to document the growth of our lovely little ladies?  maybe he will talk to this girly to figure out what i could manage to keep in once piece?  

on a brighter note, phipps is one of my favorite pittsburgh places all year long, but especially when it is so cold out it hurts one's lungs to take a breath.   the orchids and bonsai were spectacular. it was great to be in a beautiful, warm place where abby could run a bit.  


  1. I'm laughing hysterically picturing George saying, hurts me. Just like that photo of abs smelling the orchids, eep!

    also, don't worry, i'm on the camera search for you girl. xoxo rae-rae

  2. Hey I just randomly came across this while looking for tropical pictures. You should check out this new camera by Panasonic. It's waterproof, shockproof, full HD, and has tons of other features.
