I forgot to mention in a recent post that on Monday we also went to do laundry at the nice laundromat to catch up (two pee beds in one night? aack!). We also went to our favorite pizza place, and then headed to the park to see the lights. Santa wasn't there that night, it was freezing cold, and the security guard became part of our group. Unfortunately, after having already been to Ridgecrest that morning, and having a sick kid, and taking the kids to the laundromat, AND pizza, my brain went missing and most of the pictures I took were too blurry due to my lack of turning up the ISO. It was set to 400, and should have been at least 800 or even 1600 to get a faster shutter speed. My kids (and my shivering hands) can't hold still long enough.
A group shot that the guard said was part of his duties... he took the picture and then handed me my camera explaining that he *might* have cut my head off in the picture. Sure enough!
See the blurriness? Bummer. I may go back and try again. It's pretty far away though, and fairly chilly. We'll see.
