I am a lucky mama. My sweet boys (and their dad) got me a ridiculous (in a good way) Mother's Day gift. I love taking photos, and my camera was just so done. But I don't like buying stuff for myself unless I have used the old well. And I really had. My lovely old digital camera, which was a great camera in 2001 (!) when I got it, was SO insanely slow. The lens cap ring had popped off long ago. The grip rubber was gone. If it sat *just* so in the bag the lens moved, and I had to hold it at just the right angle to hear the little zoom slide back into place so the camera could focus. I really got good use out of that old camera, though.
SO yesterday I was very happy and surprised to see a new camera. Today as the boys were outside I played and experimented with it a bit. The bonus of having a new camera is that the boys let me take pictures of them all day. New and exciting and they were involved.
They even SMILED for me! And as they zoomed by, I could click click click and keep up. Amazing.
