The night before we left San Francisco, Lauren (Kat's roommate) gave Steven and I a Flip Video camera to say thanks for the help with the furniture and unpacking in the apartment. It was such a sweet and unexpected surprise! Lauren is a sales manager/trainer for the company that sells Flip Videos. Dad bought Mom the first generation Flip Video camera a year or two ago, so I was familiar with the concept. This is a newer version that holds 2 hours of video and has a larger screen on the back. On the side a USB plug-in flips out to plug directly into your computer to upload the videos. It is about the same size as a digital camera. I was so excited about this gift and can't wait to use it. Good news for my blog...the videos will continue! Thanks Lauren!
