Camping video

We got a new video camera a few weeks ago. It is called Flip video. Glen Beck gave it lots of praise on his radio show, so we bought one. It was really cheap (for a video camera) and it is so easy to use, even my mom could figure it out...maybe even without reading the directions. It has a flip out USB connector right on the side of it, and all you do is flip out the plug, and stick it into your computer. It is so awesome. We also bought an underwater housing for it, so hopefully soon, Darwin and Brookin can take it out scuba diving with them. It has a really good quality picture, and the sound is good. I was watching the clip on the camera, and couldn't hear it very well, but when I put it on the computer, it sounded just fine. Anyway, here is a short video of us while camping this week.

**03/24/08**As a short side note...it took me four days to figure out how to post this video. It was too large (154 MB and blogspot only accepts 100MB or less), and even after setting up YouTube, it took me several hours to figure out how to link the two. Actually they are still not linked...it just says "fetching your information, please wait" and never loads, so I just copied the embedded link, and that is how I got it on here. If any of you have other suggestions, please share them!! Thanks! The video quality is much better than it shows too...so don't judge the video quality by this clip. I will try to post a shorter video using blogspot, and maybe it will be better quality. ~@~Melissa~@~

Ok so is half drunk water only half way to a DUI? I thought it was so funny that Isaiah had to bring his chair everywhere he went just so he could be in the picture. I think Brooklin and London won the clean tent contest but it was awful brave of you to show us yours so.........good job! By the way, Caleb, I took your advice and deleted (only you out of) the video! Looks like you had a lot of fun! Mommer

Oh, one more thing..........."even your mom could operate the flip video", huh? And you just had to throw in the part about reading the manual too????? See if you ever receive any stupid pictures from my stupid digital camera that your stupid sister gave me after her stupid sister gave it to her.

I have been considering that very same camera after having heard it advertised in the same place. Glad to read a good review.
I am realy excited to get out and camp, but it's still too cold here to camp with toddlers.
