My official biggest fan, Ellen, let me take some photos of her daughters and niece last weekend. They were such a fun group of girls. I always wanted a sister when I was growing up! Anyway, we had the PERFECT weather at a beautiful park in Maryland and I really wanted to get some photos on a hill by the lake with this great flowering tree in the background. I had to position myself just right on the side of the hill to get the shot. I had to leverage myself so as to not fall down the hill into the water. Everything was going fine until.....rrrrriiiiiiippppppp. Uh oh. There went my jeans. And this was no little r-i-p I tell you. This was a rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiippppppppppppppppppp. Like something from the movies. I am lucky I had any pants left. Luckily I had brought my jacket along so I tied it around my waist until I got home. Oh the things I sacrifice for a good shot. I'd better cut back on the cupcakes.
