Yesterday, we joined some friends at the local water park for lots of swimming! It's amazing what a difference just a few weeks makes. We were here about 3 weeks ago, & Reese wasn't strong enough at swimming yet to be too far from Mommy's reach.
This time, however, he was all about swimming & keeping Mommy at a distance. He's done a great job at home with teaching himself how to swim!
Pulling out a camera in the middle of a kiddie waterpark isn't that smart of an idea. I made sure to stay FAR away from this contraption:
Reese was intent on spraying me!
Luckily, I was just out of reach :)
I had been playing with shutter speed on my camera. It's always set to "auto" and after reading the manual again the other night (duh!) I realized that I could change the shutter speed to a higher setting & capture things like water drops mid-air (which was something I kept trying to do but never could get it right).
Here, I just pointed my camera at a stream of water that was shooting in the air, & I think the higher shutter speed worked! I like how it looks like an ice sculpture...
I was telling Jeff last night, that at Reese's age, this nice little town water park is plenty of entertainment. I took Reese to NRH2O last summer, but at $17 per ticket, we didn't have any more fun than we did at our local town water park, which is $3 to get in! Perhaps when he's older, these small water parks won't cut it, but I'm not planning to spend that much money & gas to visit the big waterparks for many more years!
