Hey hey!  I’ve received several emails and bloggity questions regarding the underwater digi cam that I used for the pics a couple days ago…SO, I looked up all the info for ya.  🙂  First I started here.  I did a search for waterproof cameras and just settled on this page.  From there, I went to amazon and checked out some options.  I wasn’t picky because I wasn’t going to spend much.

I ended up spending $135 for this Intova, a 6 mega-pixel point and shoot camera (WITH optical zoom!) that includes the underwater housing.  The reviews were fine.  The price was right.  🙂

Is it easy?  Nope!  It’s pretty much a pain (not easy to work + a 3 second or more delay), BUT with a little luck and practice, I think we’ll end up being friends.   The battery life isn’t so hot.  The screen is impossible to see with the bright sun (and forget it underwater!!!) BUT I really don’t mind.  I’m getting exactly what I wanted — pics of my kiddos swimming — and it’s fun to do something new.

Took the cam out again today to my mom’s pool — it’s MUCH more sparkly than ours AND I had some help with the kiddos (smart move!) because Fella thinks he can swim now and just GOES and goes and jumps and swims without even caring if anyone is nearby.  Good thing Peachy is 100% on her own and confident in the water!

Oooh…if you get a waterproof cam, let me know.  Send me a pic or two.  Have fun!

I love my happy little swimmers.  🙂  ~m

Well, it’s almost time to leave for our big FL trip.  SOOO much to do still…this MIGHT be my first all nighter since college.  Not good. 

I already miss the kiddos.    How do you even begin to explain to your little guy that you’re gonna be gone for a while?  😦  Peach seems to understand.  She’s excited we’ll be sending postcards and bringing her back a little somethin’ somethin.’

Took some pics of mine today with my new 50mm.  Just couldn’t resist.  Haven’t posted on the kiddos in a while, so I thought it would be fun.  Plus, when I’m missing them, I can just glance here and get a quick fill of cuteness. 

^ HER.  My little Peach.  {window light}

^ HIM.  My sweet little buddy.   {outside}

I’ll try and post while I’m away!!! Might get wrapped up and chatty with my pal Claire though — we can gab forEVER! 

Images for sure on Sat evening (Sun morning for you!) showcasing some of my FL sessions.   After all the talk about where we should go, hubs and I are doing our own thing with friends the first couple nights and then staying at a posh resort near Jax.  Oh-la-la!  🙂  Yessssss!  Sandy beaches and relaxing facial/massage here I come!   ~m
