The Fourth and Final in a Series of Fujifilm Blogs: Minnow’s Summer Weekends


We’ve had two exciting summer weekends recently and fortunately we were able to document them with our new Fujifilm S2950 camera. The first one we spent in the city for my son’s City Final baseball tournament. They were the champions (I’m allowed to brag) and I was so proud of them because they not only performed well as athletes, they were gracious winners as well.
The camera was so easy to use that I gave it to one of the younger brothers in the stands and to see what he could come up with. You can tell he was excited that it was a final game.

Little brothers also like our team banners. (Note the logo on the bottom far left!)

But these are the shots I like the best. Victory can be so sweet.

Victory is Sweet

Especially when the winners can’t wipe the genuine smile off their big boy faces.


Fast forward to a friends’ cottage weekend in Georgian Bay the next weekend where the setting was quite different and there was a host of activities for parents and kids to enjoy.

We kicked off the festivities Friday night with a beautiful sunset.

A perfect sunset

And some smores.

Then we went sliding the next morning.

Sippery, sliding fun

How cool is that slide? It’s Dad-designed and pumps water from the lake onto the slide using solar power.

Then we proceeded to eat a gourmet lunch on a screened-in patio, complete with freshly baked bread, beautiful French cheeses and vegetables picked straight from the garden.

And some wine. Note the very cool wine cooler bags.

Wine, of course.

The kids (all 16 of them) couldn’t have been happier.

Happy children

Two amazing summer weekend memories captured on the new Fujifilm S2950 camera. That’s awesome.
