Underwater Photos

We are loving our underwater housing for our camera. Both my husband and I have the Canon Powershot SD800 SI.  We both got them when they first came out.  We thought while we both have the same camera, and while they are new, we should get the housing. I personally go though cameras about every 3 years.  The last Canon Powershot 450, I believe. It took 10, 000 photos before the flash stopped firing.  The camera before that, also a Canon Powershot, (see the pattern?) was thrown into our pool by our then, 18 month old son.  🙂  It too had taken about 10, 000 photos. Anyway,  this underwater housing has treated us well.  It’s mostly my husband that thinks to reach for the housing and I think it’s great.  He take awesome photos.  Here are a few from today’s swim session before dinner.

We Are Swimming

When I say we, I mean, them. This is the 3rd afternoon this week the kids have taking a swim here in S. Florida. They still get very cold but apparently it’s worth it. Me, I’ll wait until the end of June, thank you! That’s when the water is like a bathtub… much more my style. I really, really don’t like cold water! It’s not fun, it’s not relaxing.

Summer is coming! Yes, these are forced smiles. I hate it when the flash doesn't fire right away and you have to say, "hold on, hold on! Keep that smile!"

We love this strategy game. When grandma brought the kids Blockus a couple weeks ago it was the only game my son wanted to play. We play a few times a week. It’s a really awesome game that I very much recommend for any age! My husband and I love to play too.

His boy is great at Chess and Stratego as well. He loves strategy games.

The strategy of the game is to build a perimeter with your colored pieces in the largest area you can. Once you've done that, no one can get in, and you can't go out. You have to build only from your corners. Blue won this game.
