Fun in the Sun

Ah, the weather this weekend has been absolutely perfect! Blue sky, sun and a lovely breeze! The doggies and I have been spending on and off time in the back yard. I get warm and know my skin needs a little break from the sun every now and then, and the doggies get tired and hot with all that black fur. I thought this would be a great time to mention that a few months ago I got a sweet new DSLR camera! A Canon EOS Rebel T3. It's an awesome camera and takes significantly better pictures than my point and shoot (also a Canon, but about 6 years old), especially of Jacque and Pippen. Of course, I'm sure in the bright light of the sun the point and shoot would do just fine, but I played around with the DSLR outside with the doggies today and discovered a super cool sports mode! Check it out....

Love it! Jacque is a supermodel this weekend! His birthday is coming up next Thursday, he will be 8. I can't believe we've had him for 3 years! Amazing!


  1. We just have the point and shoot, so sometimes we're just black blobs. Love the grass rolling photos.

  4. Nothing like a good back scratching - Simon does this all the time, he also likes to rub his beard on the concrete patio.

  5. That looks like SO much fun! It was raining in Florida this weekend so I didn't get to play outside.


  6. Oh my! Looks like for once there was better weather here than some of the more sunny places! As usual, I'm sure this won't last! We had fun though!!!

  7. Cute cute pictures. I'd love a new camera, ah, maybe someday. Can't wait to see all the new pictures of the doggies.

  8. Those are some great roaching photos!
