World Wide Video

Not sure if you all know but we just got a new computer a few weeks back. It is awesome! It is a desktop. We even got a new desk and chair so now we have a great setup. This morning we decided to surprise Melissa and Antonio (Adam's sister and brother-in-law) who live in Zurich, Switzerland, and do our first video chat over the Internet. We had a few stumbles where I accidentally hung up on them as they were showing us their house in Zurich but it was so exciting! It was so awesome to be able to see their faces right there interacting with us. Our niece Chiara was sooo adorable. She kept looking right into the camera at us saying "hi..hi!"Melissa is pregnant again so we got to see her "bump." It really made our day and I think theirs too.

Technology really is amazing that we can talk to people all over the world through the computer. I remember my first computer -- DOS programming where you had no real graphics and everything was pretty much black and white. I would play games like Oregon Trail and Solitaire. How far we have come to where now we are so accustomed to our computers and Internet where you can find any information you need, talk to anyone you want by email or chatting and even video.

So if any of you have Windows Live Messenger or Yahoo Messenger and want to chat over video, let us know. I think now we have it figured out :)
