Over the Labor Day weekend I got my hands on a Sony handycam which turned out to be, well, handy considering it poured rain for most of the holiday.

Word to the wise, before shooting video of your kid make sure you’ve combed their bed head, checked that they don’t have their shirt on backwards, and you may want to have them sit in a chair that you don’t frequently use as a stool for painting the house. You know, hypothetically speaking.
