A Sparkling New Camera


I’ve been waiting awhile for this.

More than a year ago, I started looking at new cameras. It was time for an update.

Now, after much research and waiting, I have purchased a new digital SLR, and am (im)patiently waiting for the battery to charge so I can use it.

I did manage a few shots, like this one (notice the sparkles!), before it died.

I am now the proud owner of a Canon Rebel SL1 (the world’s smallest DSLR!).

Colouring with Children


The kids and I contented ourselves with pencil crayons and colouring books while waiting for family to arrive at the campground.

It was a treasured moment with children that are quickly growing and gathering new interests. It was shared time, quiet conversation, and the sweet simplicity of colouring within the lines.
