...and they all lived happily ever after...

You may think this is just a sweet little montage of a day in the life of my family...but no! This is actually the last hurrah of our five year old, silver, have to pry the flash open if you want to use it, will only focus most of the time but thankfully was available while we needed it Cannon Powershot S1 IS.
This week we added the last couple of needed dollars to our savings jar and we were able to purchase our fancy (ok, not really) new camera. Bryce and PJ have been mowing lawns for Grandparents and Uncles all summer to earn money to replace the camera that they accidentally but carelessly broke (we are all about accountability around here). They have worked hard and done a good job and actually done very little whining about the whole ordeal.
So, on Friday we headed to the store and came home with our new Canon Elph 300. It is pocket sized but still packs a photographic punch (or so says all the reviews, we've only had it a day so I don't really know from personal experience, but I have told you before, I am pretty type A so much research and reading has gone into choosing this little flash bucket).
I hope that this camera will be a great one for our family and will last for many MANY years (are you reading this boys?). We are awfully grateful to have it and are particularly thankful to all those who helped us get here. We feel very blessed.
