Beaches and Cameras

It kinda seemed like this needed updating. :P
Even though it's only been about four days.

The Oasis (youth group) kick-off was at the beach on Friday. The R's picked us up after Church because mom, dad, Nate, and Candace had a BBQ to go to. Mr. R took us to Mamzar Park, and we went in about the same time as the P's, and walked about a mile to beach 4. Hannah kept asking "Are we there yet?" just to be silly, and she and Dan were convinced we should've taken the kiddie train around the park. Hannah C., Sarah H., Elisabeth, Hannah Pk, and I played volleyball for a little while, then Sarah and I watched Ben, James, and Zachary for a while. We went in the water (tried playing frisbee with Daniel... but without his glasses he can barely see so it didn't go so well), and then dried off and ate dinner (which was yummy - Arabic food, taters, and rice... mmmm....). Mitch started a game of Capture the Flag, and it kinda died down so we played Duck Duck Goose until we gathered up our stuff, prayed and sang for a few minutes, then loaded up into the bus... we started clapping for everyone who came on... don't ask. Pastor W dropped a bunch of us off at the front gate, where Mr. R picked us up. It went waaay late and I was waaay tired when we got back.

Yesterday and today I've really been working on transferring old video stuff from the MiniDVs to DVDs. Pinnacle still gets rather frustrating sometimes, but I've figured out how to work it a bit more.

Also, I've been looking into getting a video camera of my own. I have about $275 saved up already, and I've been looking into what camera I want. Just curious about what all of you have (Camera brand, make, and accessories) and what you like. This is the one I'm looking at right now, with the accessory kit and a lens filter. Any input is helpful.

Anyway, I'm gonna go watch some old footage of Candace sucking her thumb...

It's not Arabic food. It can be Emerati food, or Iraqi, or Palestinean, but not Arabic food. Arabic, is a language. Even I know THAT much, Kyleigh!

We call it Arabic food because it's food we get at the majority of mid-eastern restraunts around here and in the states (Cedarland, La Shish, Al Ameer, Automatic...). It's mostly Lebanese, that's what Cedarland was, but we still call it Arabic food because it's the more common stuff like falafel, pita bread, hummous.

It's Emirati. With an I, not an E.

Whatever. I am not a speller. Ask anybody. I use spell check a lot. (: It's still not Arabic food. Maybe Lebanese, but not Arabic.
