How I Spent My Summer Vacation

The main reason I have not had time to write lately is that I spent my 3 days off in Ingleside with Bryan! He is awesome, and getting stronger every day. He is learning so much..he is army crawling and really using his arms a lot now. And his hair is growing like crazy - I actually got it cut on Sunday, so it's not so crazy now....but it all looks good on him....because he is always smiling.

I bought a new camera, so I will be posting LOTS of pics for a while and not much text. I added a few pics after Bryan to show you the beautiful beach (one of a few, actually) where I spent 5 fabulous days in California...no phone, no laptop...just my dearest friend, my new camera and time.

Enjoy!

Bryan is so adorable!!!! All of his pictures are so good I can't decide which one I like the best! What kind of camera did you get? I am looking into getting a new one and starting the research now.

Destini,

I have been wanting a Canon XiT for a LONG time and also looked at Nikons. They are the best because they are housed in a hard titanium case. I settled on a Sony DSLR, only b/c I got a great deal. Great camera, not as durable if you hike, etc... Circuit City must have been discontinuing the model, so I got the camera, extra battery, carrying case, 70-300 mm (extra) lens, and tons of stuff from Snapfish, including a leather photo book, calendar, too much to mention...DSLR for dummies and 20 hours of free online training for under $700. So no Canon or Nikon - but I am very happy. I will be taking Bryan's pics now instead of Sears, etc. and saving a bundle. That was my schpill to myself to justify anyhow. :0) Aren't they cute?

LOVE the pictures! Candi, he couldn't possibly be any cuter! I'm so excited that he's crawling. Poor Brandy. The chase is on. But she'll love it I'm sure. She'll just be more exhausted!

Candi!
I am so happy you were able to spend some time with Bryan! Adorable pictures ... and very cool you got a new camera. I'm envious of some of the blogs out there ... I didn't realize what great pictures good cameras could take. I thought all digital was the same quality. I recently told my husband, "I think I want a new camera, like a Cannon" His reply was, "oh just a new camera ... do you know how much those go for?" So I'm thinking, okay not!
