Not once but twice!!!!!!
There was great anticipation about the park last evening....seeing as we had missed out last Friday. I decided to take my tripod and try and get some lovely shots at the evening hour. Off I went as the boys kicked the ball and Katie just ... well was Katie (see video below). Then disaster struck. Wailing....uncontrollable tears.....a screaming, "OW! OW! OW!" .... over and over. It was Katie. Thinking maybe she had been naughty....I reluctantly packed up and went over. Nope! She had been bitten by not one but two bull ants in her attempt to climb the tree. Yikes! (If you are unsure about bull ants read the entry below when just a month ago it was yours truly wailing "ow ow ow!") She was inconsolable and the memory of the pain of just one bite was fresh in my mind! Denis thinks our Friday nights at the park are doomed....me, well....this happened the last time I took my tripod ie. the teeth through the lip incident. *SIGH* I don't think I was meant to use my tripod at the park! It suits me much better to be sitting on the picnic blanket cradling my girl and rocking back and forth. Such was the evening hour.
