Instagram Love

Got an iPhone yesterday when Cory changed cellular services for his business. Having limited technological savvy, I was only a recent convert to an Android even though it seems everyone else has been using "smart" phones for ages. And I admit there was only one real reason that I was willing to yet again learn a new device, a little gem of an app that my many online scrapbook acquaintances have been raving about.  Instagram.

Instagram takes seemingly mundane, everyday camera phone photos and transforms them into little works of art with a few simple clicks. Just check out this picture I snapped of David at the mall today and you'll see what I mean. Sweet.

Here's another photo, taken by Dad while we were visiting in Perry County a few weeks back, transformed by one of Instagram's photo filters:

If you have an iPhone, download this free app and "follow" me. You'll see the pics I plan on uploading frequently now that I have the ability.

Technology continues to amaze me.

Lesson learned.

We had planned to head to Columbus, OH this weekend to peruse an antiques fair and explore the reknowned Columbus Zoo. We scrapped our plans after incurring an expensive car repair a few weeks back, so we found ourselves with a "free" weekend here at home. What to do, what to do?

Yesterday morning, after completing the typical morning routine, we sat around and debated the many possibilities before us. Fountain Square antiquing, Irish Fest, Country Fair at Connor Prairie, a jaunt about downtown Zionsville, a hike at Eagle Creek.... all of these came up as possibilities. What should we do to make our weekend great? Exhausted by our choices, we gave up and decided to simply take a walk, stopping at the little park behind the elementary school.

And the ideal thing-to-do pretty much fell into our laps. Who knew a seemingly mundane playground would provide us with such entertainment.

He absolutely loved the tunnel slide. Went down by himself many times, laughing all the way.

Cory even took him down a twisting tunnel slide on the bigger kids.  The above photo looks disturbing but trust me, they are both laughing. And VERY static-y.  Ha!

Who says a major outing is necessary to make a weekend great?  Lesson learned.
