New Shutterbug Goes Berzerk!!!!

We have been saving for about two years for a new, professional camera.  Well, we finally saved enough to get one.  I (Betsy) have been enjoying its many features!
Here are a few pics from the last couple of weeks.  Believe me, we have many more!
I took Aaron to the zoo the other day.  It was a great day to be there.  Partly cloudy skies helped keep the weather somewhat cooler.  Even the cheetahs liked it!
A lot of plants are in bloom right now.  This one intrigued me greatly!
Aaron's favorite place is the playground.  He took a car down this "roller" slide until he was a sweaty little guy.
So, after all that fun at the "dry" part of the playground, we changed him into his swimsuit and moved over to the "wet" side. It is not deep, but very wet and cool!
 Danny is teaching me about a computer program that lets you select color regions and make "art" out of any photo.  I call this one "The Floating Leaf". 
We recently received two  packages in one day!  One was from Auntie Jo and the other from Poppa and Gigi.  Auntie Jo sent Aaron Lightning McQueen shoes.  He put them on and took them off all afternoon.  They are still a little big, but he'll grow fast!
Poppa and Gigi sent lots of different things, mostly our favorite snacks that can be hard to find here.  For example: Cheerios, Kix, Gold Fish.  A few surprises as well.  The hit was a toy truck that looks like Poppa's real truck from the farm.
Thanks Auntie Jo and Poppa and Gigi!  It was so much fun to laugh over your wonderful gifts!!

Thanks for adding the picture of Aaron with McQueen (kachow!). I'm so glad I could send a little surprise over. And I'm happy you're enjoying your new camera, and making art out of everyday photos.

<3, Auntie Jo

You are mastering your new camera very quickly, Bets! Keep those wonderful photos coming. My fav is the B & W of the American boy with the leaf!

Wow, Aaron is getting so big. I love your pictures. Timothy loves Lightning McQueen and has the same shoes. He loves them. Sounds like things are going great for you guys.
