4th of July

Life without a camera is hard. There are so many things Mckinley is doing that I want to get on video.

Anyway, thanks to my sister-in-law Shellee for all these pictures from our 4th of July weekend.

Friday we woke up early and went to see the balloons. I love doing this every year and I really don't mind getting up early for it.

Just because I can't help it, here's a comparison picture from last year. Mckinley has definitely changed the most!!

For the most part she was pretty mellow all morning since we woke her up so early but we got some good shots of her looking up at the balloons in the sky and pointing at them.

I think the Darth Vader balloon was everyone's favorite. That thing was massive.

What do you call the opposite of a bird's eye view?

I love the coca cola balloon too.

We borrowed Melanee's cute little headress to see how Mckinley would like it.

Doesn't she look cute?

Later that night we went to a ward swimming party at Scera. We forgot to bring Mckinley's floatie but she was happy just walking around in the shallow water. She would walk all the way up to her neck and not want me to touch her. Then of course she would fall and I'd have to catch her. It was fun, but we don't have any pictures from it.

The morning of the 4th we got up and went to the parade. We love the sweet spot we (er....Lincoln) reserve every year.

Family picture.

And the one from last year...

We spent our afternoon and evening on the 4th up in Park City at a timeshare Brandon's dad booked for the week. Mckinley had her first taste of corn on the cob.

She LOVED it.

Now, back to our camera problem, my sister let me borrow her camera until we decide what to buy for our next one. Wow, her camera is old school, the kind with 2 aa batteries. I charged them yesterday morning and they're already dead. So they lasted about 10 pictures. Fun. Anyone love your camera? What is it and how much?

Canon SLR. Expensive, but great.

Yep Grant that is one I want to buy when we can afford it. Right now I have a cannon S5. Good luck. Buying a camera is a hard decision.

Oh lowsy camera issues! We have two Cannons and love them both. I can't find our little pointa nd shoot right now but we got it in 2007 so I'm sure there are newer editions out, but I would buy the exact same thing again... in fact, we did. Last summer when we dropped our camera in the pool we found the exact same one on KSL for $75 to replace it. :-)

Glad you had a good 4th! Lincoln LOVES corn too. Funny babes. and he's FINALLY walking everywhere now. wahoo.
