Video from the July Haiti Trip
This is a video from our last trip to Haiti in July. It is one of my favorites from the trip! Our friend Tipap is hosing the kids down that were standing outside of the gate. They are so animated and giggly that it makes me laugh!
The story behind this is that the night before we had been having a water balloon fight inside the gate. We kept throwing water balloons over the gate (it was closed) at the kids who were standing there and we laughed every time we heard them shriek with laughter (ok ok so more than once we were actually getting cussed out...but it didn't stop it from being funny :) haha). Eventually they got smart and started throwing water back at us by filling up buckets at the pump outside. One of the times that they meant to throw water over someone accidentally let go of the bucket and it came sailing over the gate along with the water! We all laughed really hard at this, and even harder when we heard the unison "AWWWWWWWW" from the kids on the other side at loosing some of their ammunition. It was a fun night! But we were surprised the next morning at how eager these kids were at getting hosed down. It was cute nonetheless! Hope you enjoy the video as much as I do :)
