Our Week

Last week was really busy and really stressful and hectic, so that's why I didn't blog at all. Sorry!

However, last weekend was really, really fun and even though I didn't take any pictures, I wanted to tell everyone that we went to the Rexburg Air Show AND the zoo!!! It was so fun and we had a great day. I got totally fried at the air show and now have a fabulous farmers tan.

Cody was smart and used sunscreen, so he was fine. I'm not really sure how to make the rest of my arms and chest match my tan...But maybe I'll be able to figure out something.

Father's Day was also really fun. I had ordered Cody a Nikon d60 (with the help of April and Noah...I know NOTHING about cameras) the Monday before, thinking it would get here Friday or Saturday....Nope. So on Sunday night I printed off a picture of it and wrapped that. He was really confused at first because he didn't think that's what I had gotten him, but when I explained it was for real he was excited. He had been talking a lot about the Nikon d40, but April said the d60 was like 2 steps up from the d40, and not that much more expensive, so I decided to go with that one. But since he didn't know anything about the d60 he spent the next hour or so researching it online. He's still not totally positive if he wants this one or wants the d40, but yesterday we were out taking pictures and I think he likes it a lot!! (And he's already taught me how to use it, so that's a plus)

So, for your viewing pleasure, here are some of the pictures we've (really just him) taken with it so far. What a fun new camera!!


This is our friend, Jon, doing some jumps behind our apartment.

Those are really cool pictures, and have fun fixing the farmers tan :) I was out in the sun for like hours on end on Saturday and got a little pink. But Rhet had sunscreen that I used on my face, because I hate getting my face burnt. But I didn't put anything on anywhere else in hopes for some sun and I got nothing. Boo...

Those are great Stacey! Cool camera and I so want to know how to do the blurry background awesome close-up in focus shots. And woah on the sunburn. How did you get that little spot on your chest? It's like reverse or something! :) Love you! Seriously - great pics.
