for some reason, since i resized these pics before uploading they all look a little squished or over sharpened. hopefully you can click to see the bigger version. these are all with the d90 & the 50mm. i'm enjoying it, but there are more options than the d40, so i'm a little befuddled...
i have a pic of the other kids in this hat when they were babies ... but they were SMILING, lol. i'll have to try again soon.
this was hard, the color was off & i was up high on a ladder, lol.
i like it a bit better in b&w.

we ordered the body only since the kit lens isn't really something i want/need. i got a 50mm 1.8 to go with. after renting a 60mm for two weeks, i never want to use a zoom again. i am officially a prime girl.
my aunt kathie sent me a gift card to b&h photo for my birthday that will be going towards a flash. i've read and asked for reviews, and at the price i'm looking for, the sb-600 seems to be the way to go!
here is where the bad & ugly come into play. i bought a jug of starbucks white mocha syrup. it's been working out pretty well. i made a hot or cold drink every morning depending on what it's like outside.
anyway, friday i made a drink & something was off so i dumped it. saturday morning the same thing happened. i couldn't figure out what i was doing wrong. i was making it the same way i had been for days. i checked the date on the jug, milk, coffee - all fine ....
later i asked john to make me one, because i was just not doing something right .... SAME THING!! so finally it hits me - SMELL THE MILK! i have never been so grossed out in my LIFE. never have i smelled sour milk, the milk was 2 weeks from expiring, and i just opened a couple days before! i sent organic valley an email last night. for $4 a half gallon, i want fresh milk! i can still taste that gross taste in my mouth. yuck ..
poor john used the milk in his coffee that morning. and ETHAN! oh .. we were out of soy milk, so i gave him a cup of the cow milk. oh man, he told me it was bad, but i thought he was just complaining because it wasn't soy - oops ... i don't think i'll ever use milk again without smelling it first. the date lied!
the weather here has been great! it's been ranging from 65-85 mostly. perfect! anyone who doesn't like fall is CRAZY! we're going to rent a cabin in january up in the mountains. hopefully both of our parents will be able to come, but we'll see.
last weekend we were pretty busy. we were just going to to to the corn maze at the botanic gardens, but i didn't realize there was more than one location until we were almost at the wrong one. we were right by the denver aquaruim at that point, and 45 minutes away from the maze, so we decided to just check out the fish.
It was actually pretty nice. Much better than the run down one in virginia beach. i didn't have the right lens on for close shots, since i had planned on being in a big field of corn, but here are a couple pics. :)
also, they had tigers - which is pretty strange for an aquarium ... but ahhh .. they're SWIMMING tigers, lol. now it makes sense, eh?
