In a change to our regular photo posts, this evening we're uploading a video of our typical bedtime routine with the girls. It was an opportunity to use a few apps that I've had on my phone for a while. The video was captured, edited and uploaded all on my phone - Apple rocks! - making our blogging capability completely mobile. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGV5BoIUlCM&feature=youtube_gdata_player
This evening we took full advantage of the weather had dinner by the river. It was a win-win, we got to spend the evening in beautiful surroundings and the girls got to stay up a little later until the fresh air knocked them for six. The girls were a great source of entertainment for the many runners, cyclist and strollers.
As a change to the normal run of the mill weekend activities, we took the girls swimming to Swan Leisure in Rathmines. Our second visit to a pool and they enjoyed it a little more than their first. They did cry inconsolably for the first 15-20 minutes but then calmed down and really enjoyed it. By the end they were kicking and splashing and blowing bubbles. The centre run a family session every saturday and make sure the water temperature is turned up notch. Sam and I could have stayed there all day. We really enjoyed the experience and the relaxing coffee and cake at the end. I got a big slap on the wrist for taking the first photo, which I think is ridiculous, but I promised I'd delete it - yea right! Now that we have found a really decent swimming facility close by we will take them a little more often.
A few weeks ago Sam took this funny video of the girls giggling at each other. The original video is much longer and we've tried to edit it down to the best bit. I've been tweaking our website for the last while trying to bypass 7Mb maximum upload file size, so hopefully this works. With the iPhone taking HD video a 7Mb clip would be about a minute long. If it does, we should be able to upload videos more often :).
