the 4th

we had a great 4th except that my hubby was out-of-town, but it's soooo wonderful to live by family again and enjoy our time with them. [i would've blogged yesterday, but i was too sore from wakeboarding to manipulate my mouse ;) lol!]

we watched fireworks over the lake from my brother's boat, and it was so beautiful! ...well, the parts i actually watched were - i sat there for more than half the time in the dark trying to figure out how i'd gotten my camera into rapid fire mode and how to get the iso bumped up, lol. i tell you, your life is forever changed when everywhere you go, you have to take an slr and try to capture everything in manual mode! in fact, i really think i need a good point&shoot - can anyone recommend one? i just want to take that puppy around and not have to think twice about snapping a snapshot.

here's my sister and my baby in the boat as my brother races to the dock at the end of the show - i've never been in a boat traffic jam before, lol - luckily his boat is fast, because just imagine what's like to wait in line as one-by-one a hundred boats have to dock, unload, get the trailor and load their boats - agghhhhhh!

Girl, do you ever sleep? I am glad you had such a great 4th...sorry we got to have your better half with us! I can't wait until we are all together...PARTY, PARTY, PARTY!!! Also, I think it important (as you were talking about before) to enjoy your moments in the present instead of focusing on capturing them for the future. Love you!
