I have found what I am intimidated by...

So, for a few years now I have been contemplating getting a nice camera. I have hummed and hawed, gawked, shopped around, talked to several friends and photographers, you name it--I have probably done it except the deed itself of forking out the moolah to buy the thing. For Christmas this year, Kevin absolutely, completely and astoundingly bought me my dream piece of machinery...a Nikon D90. It has since sat on our counter faithfully charging longing to be picked up and used only to receive a faceoff from me in which it inevitably won. I must say it is perfect timing with our little one arriving in less than 6 weeks, but I still find myself increasingly intimidated by this camera probably due to the fact that a great picture is just more than hardware--it now includes software editing, learning a totally new vocabulary, using natures gifts correctly and then mixing them all together. We'll see how this goes but here are some firsts...

So as I was perusing through all of our other favorite blogs after the kids were to bed the other night, I was relieved to know that our blog was not the only one which had been neglected. A once a month post seems to be about my average, and considering everything going on I feel pretty good about that. Some updates...we are down to 9 weeks left with this pregnancy and Kevin and I were able to have a getaway to Monterey Bay, CA while he was doing some work up there, we headed to Sea World and Disneyland for Thanksgiving and had an absolute blast (Kevin was able to take some time off from his internship to come home), we found out we are moving next summer, and it is almost time for Christmas Break! Here are some pictures describing our adventures with more than words...
1) Kevin and the kids won a pie eating contest at our hotel in San Diego
2) Disneyland
3) Watching Shamu at Sea World
4) Listening to a barbershop quartet at Disneyland and resting our tired feet
5) Kevin and I were able to have a "babymoon" in Monterey, CA
