8.10.09 update






So, as always, I have a ton of things to blog about from the past couple of months. We have basically been spending our time running back and forth to the pool for swim team practice and swim meets. In our spare moments, Allan and I have worked on the basement and have gotten a LOT done. I also have to add that we have had quite a few visitors this year. Basically, what I am saying is that I just haven't had time to update the blog like I want. I am going to do my best to work backward in the next week or so. If not for anything else, than for the WEJ. I found a cool site that publishes the blog in a book. But that is a whole other subject!

Recently, I broke yet another camera. If you are a friend of mine, or have talked to Allan lately, you will know that cameras and I simply don't get along. It dates back to Spain and the gypsies, but I don't have enough time to go into all of that. The point is that I broke another camera and needed a new one desperately for our upcoming Isle of Palms vacation. Since the broken camera had been purchased by AmEx, I received a credit to my account after telling them my sad story. I decided to use this money to upgrade a little. Just a little, because if you read carefully, you will remember that I tend to lose/break cameras frequently. So, I wanted more than a point and shoot, but wanted something to really zoom in on the kids without them knowing and get good shots of everyday activity. Is this TMI? Anyway, as luck would have it, I received my new camera just hours before heading south to IOP. I am so tickled with this camera, that I just had to post a few shots. Remember, I was NOT in everyone's face with the camera. These are just sneaky far away shots that I was lucky to capture. :) Enjoy!

I noticed how great the photos looked even before I read the post. Isn't it amazing what a good camera can do? We finally upgraded this year just before Claire's First Communion and every time we look at photos, I say - dang, that camera takes nice photos! What kind did you get?

Forgot to say - I remember Spain and the gypsies! They got away with the purse I had loaned you too... remember that?! : )

Hey A! I got a Coolpix P90. I couldn't justify jumping to a DSLR (because of my continued mishaps), so I compromised with a megazoom. I bought it at Costco, so I am "trying" it out. What did you end up with?

And yes, I do remember the purse. Grey, wasn't it? Guess I still owe you! :)

AWESOME!!! Looks like a good time. You really do need to consider doing something with photography.
