Got water? No problem ...

I love my little waterproof camera. Rick and the kids gave it to me a few years ago for Mother's Day. It's not a fancy one, but it's fun to take out in the kayaks and not have to worry about it too much. It's a little, blue Olympus Stylus 1050 SW. I'm not sure if they even make it anymore.

Rick took these pictures of the boys swimming last month when they went to California to visit. I can't remember which pool this was, but I'm kind of thinking it might be at California Adventure. I've taken a few underwater pictures before and it's a weird feeling to submerge a camera. It doesn't feel right, but that's what this one is designed for.

I finally got around to uploading all the pictures Rick took from the trip last month. If you want to see some more, check out my Facebook page. I've also posted a couple of videos there. One is of Rick and Nathan going down the big flume at Splash Mountain. Because the camera is waterproof, he could keep it out for the big splash at the bottom. It's a fun little camera to have on hand for that sort of thing.
