My apologies to any of you who watched these videos expecting something funny or terribly momentous to happen; these clips are more in the vein of the exit footage for CBS Sunday Morning. I can predict, though, that there are at least half a dozen people out there who will still think this is the most excellent subject matter ever recorded.
We replaced the 32 MB memory card in our camera with a 512 MB capacity card, and I have been out of control ever since. These two clips were so long that Photobucket rejected me, and I was forced to enter the world of YouTube. I don't know why I have such a hang-up about it, but trying to navigate around that site made me feel about as old and out of place as I would be if I tried to shop for skirts at Abercrombie & Fitch.
So anyways...the top video was made at GG's this past weekend. We visited her on Friday & Saturday, and we spent our time eating, antique shopping, eating, playing with Owen on the floor, eating, and eating. GG is an incredible down home Southern cook. I once told Scott I was going to get her recipe for biscuits, and he looked at me as if I'd announced I was going to attempt to build my own atom bomb. Few people compare to Scott's grandmother in or outside the kitchen. She is an amazing woman.
The second video is from Scott's firm's annual lake party. Owen cried initially when I put him in the water, but once he got used to the temperature he loved it. (So much in fact that we now own the inflatable pool featured in the video.) Our entire lot sits at about a 15-degree angle, has more moss and dirt than grass, and is home to so many mosquitoes that you'd think we were intentionally breeding them, but surely we'll still be able to recreate those happy, sunny memories from our day on the lake.
