I volunteered this morning to work the snack stand at school district’s Field Day. We had chips, soda, water, Gatorade and sno-cones. Guess what the majority of the kids wanted – sno-cones - labor intensive, rainbow sno-cones. I wanted to take a photo of the sticky, syrupy chaos that ensued, but I was too busy making change for 50 cent sno-cones that always seemed to be paid for with $20 bills. More importantly, I didn’t have my camera with me which kind of makes it harder to take the photo at all. Therefore, I’m going with the old fallback shot…flowers!
