Buyer's Remorse? Naaahh!

Well, the new news is that I took the plunge and bought a new camera. Our old camera is not yet fixed and we should know something soon but most likely we will have to pay to get it fixed since I kinda broke it by letting sand get in the lens. Oops.

Anyway, I've wanted a "real" camera for a while and I just couldn't see paying for another point and shoot when what I've wanted all along was a Digital SLR. Soooo, I've been doing lots of research and I finally decided that after ^J^'s weekend o'bartending, I could use some of that money to get the camera I've been wanting all these years! Yahoo! So Happy birthday, anniversary, & Christmas to me for a while!After about an hour of buyers remorse (the car ride home) I started playing with it and quickly realized what I can do with this amazing camera, and I figure I can try and make some of the money back very soon at craft shows and such. BTW, family, you'll be getting pictures for all foreseeable Holidays. :)

I had it this weekend so I was able to get some great shots of the soccer game, Fall leaves, and my Dad's visit. This week we have Parent Watch Day at *A*'s dance class and Halloween is coming soon so I *needed* a camera! I know the blog will be better off now too, so onto the photos!
Some super-silly and super-cute kids helping me test out the camera:

We love Grandpa John!

Go girl!

She played better than ever this week, maybe it's the granparent influence...we're looking forward to Nana and Gramps' visit this weekend to watch her play. :)
That's all for now, more tomorrow of our early Fall colors hike.

1) I have lost/broke one camera each year for the last 5 years. And it's always sometime in the fall?
2) If I didn't have such a terrible record, I'd totally go for the same fancy camera you've got.
3) You won't regret it AT ALL. Money and things don't last, memories last forever, and photos are part of that.
4) I love Grandpa John, too. (and you, and ^J^, *A* and ^H^!!!)
