A visit to the park...

The other day we visited our favorite park. It's called Westlands Park. We played a little "family football" and the kids played a little. It was a beautiful day in Colorado. I was excited to use my new camera Mark got me for Christmas. I really Love it. My old camera had a broken battery door and my batteries were always falling out when I was trying to take a picture. Also it was very slow so I missed a lot of good action shots. My new pretty shiny camera is a Nikon Coolpix S60. It's red and did I say I LOVE IT! He got it at Costco and said he got a good deal on it..regardless..I LOVE IT. It has a touch screen and a stylist where you can actually write on the picture..... so fun! Anyway here are a few pictures I took at the park. I didn't get as many as I would have liked because my boys sometimes express to me to "STOP taking pictures"!! I don't know what thier problem is. haha.

Getting ready for a game of Family Football.. they are waiting on me..

I love that park! It's a kids' paradise. I also love that camera! Too bad I don't have a Costco membership, but I have some friends who do!!!!!!!! I want to hear more about writing on the picture with the stylist.

Love your day at the park, and your new camera. I need a new camera, there is NOTHING wrong with mine but I want something smaller...pocket size even...and my girls are only so patient with the photos too!!!!

Looks like you guys had a great time!! Where is this park?? Looks amazing!! The camera sounds great too -!! Mine is bulky and old, but works fine, so I'm stuck with it!

Becky... anytime you want to go to Costco just give us a holler..we go quite aften

Terra... The quickness of the camera is nice. I can sneak in those shots before the little monkeys run away.

Tam.. Maybe if you "accidently" break the door where the batteries go, you could get a new one..just kidding, but it worked for me. haha, actually Alex broke it but I just had to pay him a minimal sum :)
