Easter Saturday

Saturday, March 22, 2008


Since we won't be seeing BooSheep, Little Sheep, and Uncle Sheep tomorrow - we met them for lunch today and then went to a local city park.

Little Sheep loved the swing and slide.

CW enjoyed the playground with his cousin, Little Sheep.

Hubby and I have been talking about the death of our camera, and he decided to go ahead and purchase a small HP camera (8.0 megapixels) for us to use while we save up for a really nice one. It came this morning at 10 am, and so these are my first pictures with it.

Note the huge turtle, almost the size of the geese. B10 and Hubby found him on their walk.

So far, I'm really impressed and excited. The pictures are great!

Know who else is excited? B10. We gave him Hubby's old camera (the thing is from the late 1990's and is only 3.0 megapixels). He is in heaven! CW had gotten a kid's digital camera for Christmas this year, and B10 was feeling pretty left out. When we went to the playground, B10 asked Hubby to walk around with him so he could take pictures.

For almost an entire hour, that's all he did. He didn't play on the playground hardly at all (maybe 5 minutes worth). He asked that I post his pictures in a blog post, so I'll be doing that later tonight or tomorrow.

We had such a good time. It's not easy for us all to get together - usually three adults can make it, but with Hubby and I working different schedules and Uncle Sheep being a Firefighter - with an even weirder schedule - it's hard.

One of my favorite things about where we live is that BooSheep and her family live nearby, so my kids really get to know their cousin and their Aunt/Uncle. It's something I didn't really have growing up.

Happy (early) Easter to you and all of yours.

We had a lot of fun at the park too! It was a great day to be outside. The boys seemed to love it!
