The boys at 13 weeks

Last week, I was editing some pictures I had taken of the boys and I realized how fed up I was with my point and shoot camera. After a few days of telling Andrew how badly I wanted a new one, he broke down and we went shopping on Friday to pick one out. We settled on the Canon Rebel T3 and so far, we LOVE it! Even though we barely know how to use it, we are still getting some amazing pictures of the boys. Here are a few shots from today...

The weather here is brutal - hot and humid with no sign of a cool down in the near future. We have spent most of the weekend in our air conditioned house. Today, we needed something to do, so we decided it was time to bust out the pool we bought for the boys. We set it up in a shaded area of our back deck and got the boys changed into their adorable swim trunks for the first time.
They wouldn't flash us any of those adorable smiles, there was just too much to take in between being outside and in the pool, but they seemed to enjoy it! I have a feeling we will be spending more time out there in the coming days.

Hope you are finding ways to stay cool if you are in this heat wave too. Thanks for stopping by!

Goodness those boys are HANDSOME and seem to be animated also which is a very good thing when you feel you are at the end of your rope!!! Good for you investing in a camera you will not have a moment of regret. I think Emma was 6 months by the time I finished all the research!!

Precious!! Once my 5 y.o. started walking we didn't have one good shot because by the time the shutter opened she was out of the frame. A good camera is the BEST investment!

What GREAT pictures! I'm thinking a camera upgrade might be in the plans down the road. The boys are cuter with each picture...such personality is coming out. Hugs from me!
