In Need of a New Camera

I have been having a very difficult time with blogging lately. I have had some really great ideas for posts, but I couldn't post due to the fact that my camera has OFFICIALLY died! I have been busy working on refinishing a table, making replacement covers for my patio chairs, making stuff out of Popsicle sticks and other various things. I would have shared all of this, but the dang camera of 6 years has just eaten it's last battery .

I would put in BRAND NEW batteries and take a few pictures, then shut it off and turn it back on within a few minutes and they would be dead as a doornail. It got so bad that when I would put in the new batteries that it would just kill them instantly. So, I am in desperate NEED of a new camera and yes I mean NEED! Hey, I have two growing girls that love having their picture being taken. It also doesn't help that we don't have the money right now to get a new one. My husband just started a new job a few weeks ago, after being on unemployment for a few months and things are really tight right now.

I have temporarily borrowed my mom's Canon Power Shot SX110IS and I have to say that I really like it!! Although, I have been looking around for a great camera and I found one that I would totally LOVE!!! The EOS Rebel T1i with EF-S 18-55mm IS!! If I only had the $700 to get it.... Here are some pics of my family having fun in the sun!

Our dog Brody eyeing the pool(hmmm I'd really like to take a dip too)

The girls having a great time!

If only I was a little bit bigger daddy.....

I love the pictures I get from my Kodak Z1485, but it only has an LCD screen, no little eyehole, so taking outdoor photos is almost impossible. Those Rebels are great, but so big. I like something that just fits in my purse or pocket.
Your family is really cute!
