Last weekend, we got to play with River and her newest, most awesome toy: A giant red inflatable ball.
My brother found it at Costco. You air it up and roll it around — kids can play inside it.
River rolled around in the ball so much it made her hair stand on end. Gotta love static electricity.
She was laughing and giggling.
She had so much fun.
I just love these shots of her laughing.
So much laughter she couldn’t contain it!
The Nerd had fun pestering her.
Soon, though, River got bored and started playing by herself in the front yard.
The Nerd wouldn’t stand for that. He rolled the ball toward her.
It went a bit faster (and harder) than he intended and hit her right in the face.
She fell down…
…but she was ok, I promise! She just kind of looked at The Nerd like: Seriously!? and then got up and continued playing.
It was really funny to watch. The rest of the weekend, she kept saying, “You knocked me down, Uncle James.” And I would start giggling hysterically.
Of course, I had to make an animation of the action:
Poor child. She’ll be scarred for life.
No children were harmed in the making of this post. At least, not physically.
