Random Photos with the New Camera

Sick Day

It's been almost 2 months since I've blogged. I really do need to catch up and I figure today is a good day to start as I'm home with bronchitis. It's not fun!

Lately, we've been busy doing work around the house (new carpets and windows in our room and Sprout's) and getting ready for the baby. Yesterday, we decided to do some Memorial Day shopping and we came home with 2 new a/c units for the bedrooms, along with a video camera and a new digital camera.

So my old camera, a 2 1/2 year old Canon Powershot, was good to me at first--until I dropped it. It still works but it's gotten to be slower and I had realized that with the new baby on her way, our digital photography needs had changed and we needed a DSLR.

I had my heart set on a Canon Rebel. I know so many people who have the Rebel and love it! However, after doing some research and shopping around, we ended up going with a Sony Alpha A200k. I knew it was a possibility that we would purchase something other than the Rebel, but I didn't expect to purchase a Sony. But we got a great deal on the camera and it gets excellent reviews. So far, so good. I'll have to upload some photos when I get a chance.
