The Zoo With My Fancy New Camera

So I got this fancy new camera for my 41st birthday in June.  A gift from my husband who bought it because he knows I love to take pictures and be creative and learn new things. And I have been loving taking my camera everywhere this summer. I still need to learn to use some of the fancier features and I'm hoping to devote more time to that part when the kids go back to school in a couple weeks.  

Here are some shots from a trip to the zoo a little while ago. 


Maybe one day I'll publish a photo book of tween/teen shots. This is just the beginning, I have about 15 more years of these oh-so-thrilled-with-mom looks to go. lol.

I might change the name of my blog to this. 

I have a real phobia of frogs. I hate them, I am scared of them and can't even look at this exhibit is truly my nightmare.

I waited outside during the frog experience and the kids told me all kinds of details about the size and shape and color and sounds of all the frogs. Ahhhhh. 

Wade loves maps and figuring out where are going next. And I love that he let his sister paint his nails and actually asked her to paint them University of Michigan colors. He's such a cool kid. 

The animals at the zoo were active and amazing. 
I love watching the kids watch and see what the older ones want to take pictures of on their phones. 

It was one of those days where all the animals were out and playful and so fun to watch.

It was a beautiful day. We had fun, made memories and learned about doesn't get much better than that.

Check out some other pictures I've taken

  1. Yay! The zoo! (And yes, tween/teen glares and stares would be fabulous.)

  2. I got a new camera in May and am hearing lots of grumbles and seeing all the eye rolling from everyone. I love taking pictures and learning about how to use it and why can't they all just be happy and play along? Is that too much to ask? We went to the zoo a couple of weeks ago and you better believe I took my camera. I love the moments you captured here.

  3. There is so much in this article that I would never have thought of on my own. Your content gives readers things to think about in an interesting way. Thank you for your clear information. network security camera system installation
