One way CJ and I occupied the kids while Karl hunted for frogs was using a flashlight and my camera. I'm usually very frusterated at my camera when I want the flash off because it automatically has a slower shutter speed and blurs the image very easily. But I've finally found an entertaining use for this annoying quirk...capturing light doodles (like those Sprint commercials)
These are with CJ moving the flashlight...
Here are the kids' attempts..
Fun stuff. Amazing what you can come up with to keep kids occupied.
