Well, you know the jingle! So, here we go again, basking in the heat! High electric bills, landfill overflowing with waterbottles, etc. etc. Prom is over (thank goodness!) Now on to graduation day. Well, we are almost there, and the week after………it’s family vacation time! Yes, we are going to try and make this thing happen, and yes, we are taking the family pooch. Yes, we all decided he just can’t be left in the hands of someone else, so he’s going. We found a pet friendly suite so, lets just hope for the best! So my family, my parents, and the siblings are headed to Six Flags Over Texas for 3 days. Oh yeah, well, our family friend is coming to (I mean, besides the dog), it’s our family in Christ. (it’s a long story)But we’ve invited him along so look for pics to come! When we get back the hubby and I will be heading out to San Antonio with the kids for a night. This trip is simply to find a place my husband saw on the FoodNetwork Channel. lol! Yes, we are looking for “Doughs” So, we will check out the SanAntonio Zoo while we are there, but the real mission, is the food! I’ll have to work on a summer routine for my hair. I probably won’t trim it until August. My youngest will be starting school in August as well, and I am already nervous! He is just a handful in character, and I am praying he gets an instructor who can appreciate his “uniqueness” shall I say? Oh well, it had to happen one day! Til next time guys.


It’s Getting There……..

My son’s prom was last weekend, and of course I had to bring out the Canon EOS. I think the camera performed magnificantly! I used my close up lens for the photo, and then gave it a sephia tone. I think it made a wonderful keepsake!

HD and Me

Hey everyone, I know it has been a minute…..or two, but I have been sooooo busy! From making traveling plans, to my son’s graduation and prom, it has been pretty hectic! So, I purchased a new HD DSLR camera, and I have been trying it out here and there. I was hoping to purchase it before my son’s graduation pics, but it didn’t work out that way. Nevertheless, Lord willing I will have the opportunity to use it on prom and grad day. I took a few pics trying to learn it. I puchased a hood for the lens. What I think is amazing is that the pics were taken in the heat of the day, yet there is no glare from the sun at all thanks to the hood around the lens. Which would have been perfect when I took my sons grad pics because he wears glasses, and we took them outside. I tried uploading the pics for you all to see, and of course, I keep getting an error from wordpress???? As soon as I figure out what the deal is, I will defintely share!
