Not Your Typical Travel Video

My daughter Hayley went to Europe earlier this month with her friend Meaghan and Meaghan’s mother. She had a blast, and most of her souvenirs were in the form of pictures and videos. She definitely put her camera to good use!

Here’s what she’s done with some of the clips she captured on her camera while on holiday. It’s an entry for a YouTube video contest:

She also included several of her friends here at home, plus all the family! Watch carefully, and you’ll see me, my sons Dylan and Sean, and my husband Ward in the video too.

I absolutely blew my shot (I was supposed to do the whole thing while smiling and quickly, too) but she included me anyway. :)

It occurs to me, if everyone did something like this with their holiday videos and pictures, no-one would wince anymore at being invited to “come watch the films we took while on holiday” …

    I loved it! I watched twice and still couldn’t catch Sean, so I guess my eye-tracking ability isn’t so good! :–) But it’s a great video, and I love the singing too!

      Nothing wrong with your eye-tracking ability, Jill. I had to watch it several times myself before I spotted him, too! He was sleeping in (if sleeping until 4 in the afternoon can be called merely “sleeping in”) and she woke him up, so he was kind of grumpy. In the video, he’s in one of the shots with four pictures in it, and it’s kind of dark and you can’t really see the paper. But he has a very grumpy look on his face!

    I gotta admit that I didn’t catch Sean either, but I caught Dylan (oh, my, how adorable is he?), Ward (natural born actor), and you, Belle (your expression was priceless…far better than a mere smile).

    Every time I see one of Hayley’s videos, I am toppled by her talent, intuition, and intelligence. (It’s one thing to have talent, quite another to know how to use it and have the capability to pull it off.)
