Shutterbug

There was a sad truth I had been avoiding for a while that was staring me in the face every time I took a picture of my little dudes....my camera was dying. 
But, but...I love my camera! I've had it for almost five years, and it has served me well! That little warrior has held up so well while I fumbled through learning some basic photography skills  (I mean...come on...I took four years to make the jump to manual photography, so I think 'fumbled' is a very appropriate word).

The poor guy has been knocked off of strollers, pulled off of tables by grubby hands...heck I even knocked it off the edge of the birthing tub while I was in labor with Luke, and yet...it has still helped me learn to capture moments like this...
...so it has a definite soft spot in my camera lovin' heart. Sadly it was starting to have some major issues, like...you know...not turning on.  It's hard to take pictures when your camera won't turn on - just sayin'.

Rewind to about a week ago, and I was giving the boys a bath while we waited for Matt to get home (he was making the long drive home from his new job).  He came in to the bathroom and handed me a box containing 'my new cell phone' (oh yeah...I broke my phone, long story). 

My remark was 'oh thanks, wow this is heavy for a phone'. - I'm sure you can all see where this is going...

He told me to open it up and check it out, and he would finish up the bath.  I opened the 'cell phone' box and pulled out like...a million Canon manuals, but kind of didn't really comprehend what I was seeing until I pulled up a brand spankin' new Canon 60D body

WHOA.

To say  I was surprised was an understatement! I am still surprised every time I pull that bad boy out of my camera bag! I'd say the boy sure outdid himself with this anniversary present (4 yrs. yesterday...woot woot).
