The convenience of my camera phone is wonderful, but the quality isn't as good. I only print photos once a year, putting my favorites into what my son calls "our yearbook". I've started to wonder if all my lower quality camera pics are going to be a problem when it comes time to print our book. I hope not. The picture above was taken at an outdoor movie night at the park. I actually liked the pixel(ly) look it had in this case.
Derek and I celebrated our sixteenth anniversary in Friday night with dinner in downtown Bellevue. Dinner was good, the company was even better. We decided to walk around after dinner and just enjoy the city, finding dessert somewhere along the way. Unfortunately, my high heels were not designed for walking. I ended up with an open wound on my foot. When I saw a grassy patch of grass, all I wanted to do was sink my sore feet into it's lush goodness. I asked Derek if he wouldn't mind just running to the Starbucks across the street and bringing dessert over to the grass. The I walked a little farther, turned a corner, and discovered the most beautiful park, right in the middle of the city. How have we lived here so long and not known about this park? Dessert in the park, no shoes required, turned out to be my favorite part of the evening. We liked this park so much that we're going to take the kids there today after church, for a picnic. And this time I'm going to bring my good camera!
Yesterday was our warmest day of year yet, and I was loving it. We made it into the eighties! Friends, sunshine, water, good food, it was perfect.
