Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. What a sweet compliment! I'm going to have to come back to yours when I have some time to read. Your children are all beautiful, and your baby and dog share their names with my boys, lol. I really like the quote you have with your title. It's the perfect excuse for blogging, I think. We can never remember all of these moments that are so special. About the camera - I have a Nikon d40, which is the cheapest of the Nikon SLRs. I do have a couple of other lenses that I use (other than the one it comes with) and I usually shoot on manual. I enjoy taking pictures, but I'm a long way from where I'd like to be!
