New Toy!

I got a new camcorder yesterday! It's technically a birthday present from my parents, but since my birthday falls between our DACOF and Perry trips (for those of you who wish to mark your calendars) I'll now have it to record all of the DACOF fun! My other camcorder is really nice, but it's really kind of a pain to transfer to the computer - this one has a hard drive and USB port so it's much easier. And it also has a little camera function built in which will be nice since I rarely feel like pulling out my big camera at trials!

I tested it out at our DACOF team practice last night and so far, so good! I think I probably need to adjust the settings a little, but it did fairly decent with the low light.

Here's one of our practice runs. Peyton seemed a little "off" last night - I'm hoping it was just the insanely hot and muggy weather (it's waaaay too hot to be running), but I'm going to keep an eye on him this week just in case a little visit with our vet/chiro might be in order.



Big thanks to my mom & dad for our new toy!

Peyton is looking great! Though I think you might be right about him being a little off ... it's probably just the heat - but never hurts to keep an eye on him. It's been raining up here for what feels like weeks!!!! It's been in the 60's - Tomorrow I think it is supposed to be 80's though!

Thanks Jenn! It's been in the high 90's here with something like 80-90% humidity...not fun. How about you send us some cool weather and I'll send you some sunshine? :)

What camera did you end up with? This does remarkably well in low light.

You might want to stop by Friday if you have a sec. :)
