My Phone Fell Where?

Last week, most of my family spent the week at Camp Sunshine which is a retreat in Casco, Maine for children with life threatening illnesses and their families. My aunt, uncle and cousins have been going there for several years because my cousin Lindsay has Lupus. She has aged out of their program so she now goes as a volunteer to help the younger kids who go there.

Anyway, my cousin Bryan, Davis and I were the only ones who stayed at home and we decided to drive up for the day on Wednesday. We packed up some snacks for the ride, bathing suits and all the paraphernalia that go along with taking a toddler anywhere. I made myself a cup of coffee for the ride and off we went.

Bryan was driving since he has been there before and knew the way. So five minutes into the ride when Davis dropped the book he was looking at, it was up to me to squirm around in my seat and attempt to pick it up off the floor of the back seat. I didn't manage to get that book, so I handed him another. As I did so, I got coffee splashed on my leg. Thankfully, it wasn't extremely hot and I thought nothing of it.

Until Bryan and I looked down and wondered aloud...."why is the coffee bubbling like that?"

And a second later....."where did my phone go?"

Aww CRAP!!

Yup, my phone had slid off my lap and into my coffee cup.

The bubbling was the liquid replacing the air inside my phone.

Needless to say, Thursday was spend buying myself a new phone. Thankfully, I was due for an upgrade so it didn't cost nearly as much as it could have. And now I have a cute purple phone.

Oh yea, and we had a great time at camp. I forgot to bring my camera though so I need to borrow my uncle's and snag some pictures from it before I can post about the rest of the trip.
