Rolling on..

It is no secret that I have been wanting a new camera. Sadly, I have priced myself out of Santa's budget and with our upcoming big vacation (ITALY IN 6 WEEKS!!!)..it was time. It was almost three years ago to the day that I started my journey with SLRs and I have really enjoyed being an amateur photographer. Now..it is time..for the ultimate upgrade..the pinnacle of what I will ever want...the Canon EOS 7D
I am very excited..it should be here soon. AND I am not the only person who has purchased this camera among our blogger friends
This also means that I can no longer blame poor photograph quality on my camera..the fault will fall on the user and her left brain bias.

We did go to a Roller Derby recently..it was fun and i can now mark it off my list of things I would like to do. It was entertaining.




I would try to explain the rules, but honestly i didn't get it until I saw it.
And finally, Cali turned 8 this past week!! She is our 'youngster' and a great addition to our pack. Happy Birthday, Cali!!!!! (some of my favorite photos of her )


Farewell, Canon Rebel XTi..you have served me well. hopefully I can find a new home to appreciate your abilities.

Cali is so cute! Happy Birthday! My daughter used to do Roller Derby. I still don't understand the rules. I would just go and root for the team!

Congrats on the new camera! That is one sweet camera from what I hear. I hope you enjoy it!

I just found out that we have roller derby around here. I had no idea, and then I saw some skating in the St. Patrick's Day parade. I'm going to be looking them up!

Happy Birthday, Cali!

Yay! for the new camera. 18 megapixels - oh MY! I have the Canon EOS RebelXSi which is 12 MP. I've had it a couple of years and LOVE it. Your new one looks FAB.

Love the pool pics; what a sweet girl.

Happy birthday, Cali. Now that I have met you, I understand Jason's attraction. I play the video of my trying to get her on my lap to Brooke a lot -- or when we get together. Her deadweight floppiness still amuses me.

Italy?! Noice.
