This Week in Pictures

      It was a somewhat slow and dragged out week here at home with the kids taking turns at having colds. This kept us from our usual morning trip to the gym so we enjoyed some long walks with the stroller instead. We meet Daddy at the "work park" for lunch one day and enjoyed story time at our neighborhood library.  David treated me to a delightful Valentine's day starting with getting up early to fix me chocolate covered strawberries and coffee served in bed! Dinner was at Cafe Ensley and the main course consisted of wild caught Salmon and two of my favorite veggies; sautéed brussel sprouts and asparugus with amble servings of bread and olive oil. 

Sorry of the terrible formatting, blogger is not friendly when it comes to adjusting the layouts.

New Lens!

I am so excited because I finally saved up and bought a prime lens for my camera. It came this afternoon and I had to take the kids outside for pictures as soon as I could get the new lens on.  It's a 50mm Nikkor with f/stop at 1.8g which allows me to take pictures inside without a flash and gives fantastic depth of field for portraits. I'm looking forward to taking better portraits and capturing pictures indoors.

My secret ambition is to be a semi-professional photography one day. In the mean time, I may be calling you to beg you to let me take family pictures for you because I can only take so many pictures of my kids, as cute as they may be.

The camera came with a lollipop in the shipping box

I have never seen a dog with such beautiful chocolate brown eyes
