random pics.

Good morning, it is Saturday.

Yesterday Maren went to Washington D.C. for an ALA Conference. Today she is giving a speech in front of lots of folks, and is a bit nervous.

Maren has not wanted me to give up on a good camera so fast. So I am trying one more. Fujifilm xp 10. It is similar to the last one in mp. Has a bit better zoom, and the kicker on this one is that the lens doesn't come is dust, shock, and waterproof. It is a tiny bit bigger than my last, and I have resigned to not carrying it 24/7, so this and my phone camera should do just fine. I almost bought this camera last time, but it was not on sale, and I wanted tiny...this time it was! So I am actually saving money in the crazy camera process.

Yesterday we also picked up some sandals for me and the littles. From left to right: Lillie, Hansen, and my new sandals.
Today is Craig's 41st birthday. I picked him up this book at Costco yesterday along with my camera. I don't think he reads my blog regularly, certainly not on his birthday. So don't tell him! I am kind of jealous, the book looks cool, at least from the cover:
And lastly, this is what the couch looked like when I came down this morning. I made sure the side I like to sit on is clear of Barbie dolls, but there seems to be some kind of convention going on here.
See you tomorrow.

Good luck to Maren at the conference! I'm sure she'll do fine. Well, the new camera certainly seems like it should be a good one. I love the Barbie pic, but not because of the camera. It's great!
