MY Mother's Day

Aside from being exhausted from the day before, Mother's Day here was a fairly quiet affair.  We went to early church service (where I got a couple yummy chocolates) and heard yet another awesome sermon.  Came home and had breakfast burritos.

Then it was present time. :-)  My children got me a new point and shoot camera.  Specifically a Canon PowerShot ELPH 100HS.  Most of my pictures I take are from the Nikon D50 my husband gave me for Christmas several years ago.  And I LOVE it.  Especially for action pictures.  But it is the size of a 35mm camera and so can be bothersome carrying it to events where I just want to do a point and shoot.  I will occasionally use the girls' point and shoot cameras but usually when I need them the batteries are run down or the memory card is full (do you know how many pictures teenage girls take of themselves?  YES they can in fact fill a memory card).  I just wanted something small I could keep in my purse for when I needed it and it fits the bill.  No bells and whistles but it takes pretty sharp pictures.

Here are my rhododendrons in full bloom yesterday with the new camera:
Then we got a call to have burgers with friends.  Burgers turned into a side of steak and I offered to bring my pasta salad.  Again with the camera:
Isn't that gorgeous?  3 different colored peppers, purple onions, asparagus, broccoli, toasted sesame seeds and almonds and a yummy asian dressing.  This is our summer staple.

Nice camera.  I think I'll keep it.  First I may have to hide it though.
