It's a NEED not a want. Really!

My kids play sports. A LOT of sports. I attend a lot of games. I like to blog. I like to scrapbook. It's nigh unto impossible to scrapbook or blog something that looks like this:


So I really NEED one of these:


But every time I ask, I get one of these: (Translation: I'm trying really hard to pretend that I don't hear you.)

I was just about to rent a billboard to get my point across when lo-and-behold, he took me to the camera store on our way out of town last week! We bought the exact camera that I had researched, studied and begged for wanted.

Where before, I couldn't take an action shot at a 4th grade basketball game....
Now I can take this:
and this: out the window of the car going 85mph on I-15! Yipeeeeeee!

(Not that these last two photos are anything special...I just wanted to see if they would come out clear and they did!)

I am highly jealous.

Yeah for you!

And what is so sad is that I knew it was I-15 before you even mentioned it. I am WAY too familiar with that highway.....

I like that first picture, I think it is pretty cool looking.

That is exactly the way I see all sports. Just one big blur. Looks good to me.

Can't wait for you to teach me everything you learn about your camera.

Lucky you! I really need a new one as well. My 4 megapixel just isn't getting the job done anymore!

You lucky lucky gal! I have my sights set on something familiar. I get a very similar reaction out of my husband..usually it comes with an eye roll as well.

You made me LAUGH OUT LOUD with your birthday post comment. Teeheehheee...I can't say for sure, but I know the judge, and I think that cheesecake idea might have scored you some extra entries in the drawing.
