Vacation Pictures

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Sparkfriends, don't ever believe that the "younger generations" are good with technology. Okay, I'm only a few months away from the big 3-0, but still...I grew up with computers, and got my first cell phone my freshman year of college, and I STILL have no idea what I'm doing.

So it took me 5 days to figure out how to the get pictures off my phone (my last camera died a sad death in Wildcat Creek, as it turns out you shouldn't try to kayak and photograph at the same time).

I went with my mom to visit her parents in Rogers, Arkansas. We stopped at Meramec, since neither of us had been there before, and I took tons of pics! Here they are!

Our half-way point: The St. Louis Arch


Meramec Caverns! Sooo glad we stopped, it had been almost 8 hours in the car and we were ready to STRETCH!! I couldn't figure out how to turn on the flash...but after seeing the photos I'm glad, they turned out really well!
















My grandparents view. I always take way too many pictures of the lake and the sunset...but seriously, can you blame me?!














And here is my mom and my absolutely adorable grandparents, married over 53 years now!

    Great photos, great vacation! On our beach vaca, I dropped my camera in the surf on the FIRST MORNING. We bought a replacement - the Kodak Playsport. It's shock proof & water proof, takes amazing HD video and great photos! I guess I should upload some of my pics to Spark - I don't know why I never thought of that!

I'm glad you had fun. The lake looks so peaceful...

    Thanks so much!! The pictures never really do the views justice...the caverns were AMAZING, and I loved how all of my pictures came out with that golden glow...but you missed the colors in the stalagtites and the walls emoticon

And there's no way to capture my grandparent's view...the lake always looks so small in the pictures, and you miss the curves and ripples and waves and currents. Which are sooo much fun to watch!!
