Gee I come up with the best ideas for school holiday activities.
Hey kids, how about a photo-shoot?
It seemed like a good idea at the time.
It was a great idea, they all had fun!
Mate was happy to be in charge of the reflector and getting Luce to laugh, and look at the camera.
Marv loves to pose.
Im just wants to hold her hair at right angles to her head and use that special forced smile that children do so well!
Everything was fine until Luce decided to climb up with Marv and Im (who were standing on stools, odd choice for a safety nerd like myself!).
She wouldn't stand still. There was panic, arm waving, and then a pile of children on the floor. There was a broken backdrop and the lampshade will never be the same again.
Thankfully we all survived to laugh about it. Marv was a great cushion for her two little sisters to land on and Mate went about quietly picking up bits of furniture while I lamented the state of my backdrop.
It filled in an afternoon. And they had fun. And, apart from the broken backdrop, it was really cheap!
