Note: Flickr recently went through a massive server transition, and portions of the service are still being worked on. Among the problems is that mosaic thumbnails on Collections are not visible, which means my primary page here for showing groupings by year are missing those thumbnails. The links do work—only the thumbnails are missing, so you can still navigate into a year to view those photos.
A couple of friends and I had a somewhat impromptu fun day. Started with some eats, followed by a little bit of frisbee time and some much-welcomed time to cool off in the pool from the near-100° temps. Trying out my new camera's underwater capabilities added to the fun.
Kicking things off with the frisbee
These are the best kind of holiday plans—virtually no real plans. Just hook up with no agenda and enjoy the company of friends for a picnic and some fun. Here's Lori.
Stanley demonstrates the two-armed balancing technique
Ellie, however, seems a bit more casual
The frisbee eventually decided it was time to get wet. We, of course, gladly followed.

Ellie and Stanley being cute again—but what's Lori doing off back there?
LOL love the face, Stanley!
First time using my new camera underwater
So, my new pocket digital camera I picked up a couple months ago is waterproof. Naturally, we all had to transform into little kids and try it out. Ellie went first. Funny, but cute at the same time.
Lori's turn for a dunk
Clearly an outtake, but too funny not to include.
Ellie decides she can open her eyes after all

Then Ron Jon and Daniel get in the mix—I mean, in the drink!
Hey, Lori can open her eyes, too!
Ellie's pretty good at the underwater handstands
Daniel wanted to see his hair going straight up, but I think I waited too long before shooting

Can't see much for all the bubbles. Wish I had tried another one.
It was insisted I be in at least one shot
Probably an outtake, but I love the close-ups
Check out the bubbles stuck to Ellie's eyelashes! LOL
Ellie doesn't like the close-ups, but I think this is adorable: thanks for the fun, guys
