Hot Air Balloons

Philip and I went to our first Night and Low-light Photography class last week at Samford. We were both really excited to be able to take a class again, especially Philip, whose passion in night-time photography. We got to practice some of our new knowldege when we visited Mobile over the weekend.

Our nephew Joshua and niece Laura Beth were visitng my parents (Mimi and Pop), and we all met up with Philip's parents in Foley to go to the Gulf Coast Balloon Festival. We had so much fun watching the sky fill with colorful balloons. And we got some great photos to take to class tonight!

See Ya When We See Ya!

Sadly, our dear friends, "the Shannans," are moving to Augusta in a couple of weeks. Though we are excited to see them begin a new chapter in their lives, we will miss them terribly! However, this move did present us with the opportunity to have a picnic at Oak Mountain State Park yesterday. What a blast!

We had fun grilling out and watching the boys play Bocce Ball. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the bubble machine and bubble gun.

Mark even caught a fish, which Ella didn't seem to care for.

Also, it was a chance to try out our new digital SLR that came in the mail on Friday, a Pentax K10D. I love it! Philip and I are gearing up for a class that we plan to take at Samford this summer, Night-Time and Low-Light Photography. It will be nice to study something besides math again!
