Spring Break, New Camera, and No Voice

It's Spring Break here in Central Texas. And it's about to kill me. Not really but it feels like it. Everyone is home for the week. DH took off so we could all be together. Everything is going really well... except 3 of 4 of us are on antibiotics for sinus infections. Can you believe that? The two boys and I are all suffering although they seem to be getting better (they've been on them for a few days longer than I have). I have that ANNOYING tickle cough. And my voice is trying to leave me again. Hopefully the meds will kick in and I can continue to be chatty Cathy soon :).

Anyway, enough whining... So, remember I got a new digital SLR camera for Christmas? Well, I did all the research for 3 or 4 months to get one that would work with my old telephoto SLR lens that I already had. It's a really good lens. In fact, they don't make a comparable zoom for digital cameras unless you want to spend $2K and up (no, mine is not that expensive!). Anyway, the more common version of my digital camera worked with the old lens but didn't auto focus, etc. So, we upgraded to the more professional version. And yesterday, I finally got to take it out for a spin. Oh my. I am in love.

We went to Sea World in San Antonio yesterday. It's just about 1 1/2 from here and well worth the trip. We try to go down there once a year or so. Here are some of my favorite pictures from our trip.


















We had a great time. It was fun to watch the boys faces light up when they saw Shamu. And we got to feed the dolphins. I've wanted to do that for a long time. It was the perfect time to go... not hot, not cold, perfectly Sunny, and not very crowded! Yippee!
