Deacons party at the park

Deacon turned 4 last Wednesday. This has been the first year he has understood it was his birthday and because of that he was so excited.
I decided to have a little party for him at the park. It was just with my family and a few of his little friends.
The weather held out for us on Sunday and he had a great time... Playing superheros (with masks i made for the kids), blowing bubbles, playing soccer, playing on the pirate ship, sliding the slide, playing with new toys, eating lollies, eating sausages, eating cake!! Its exhausting just reading that :)
But all in all it was a great day and here are a few photos.

new love new camera

a few weeks go i asked your suggestions on cameras. i needed one for product photos but i also wanted one for family. my iphone plays family camera and i wanted to start taking some better ones. believe it or not i actually wanted to be a sports photographer through high school before i became a remedial massage therapist, so photography has been something ive always had interest in.
i decided to go with the canon eos 650d and with the limited time ive had to practice so far im happy with my choice!
here are some of my first snaps.... nothing pro just snapping for fun :)
