New Stuff

On Saturday, I had to go to Tyson's Corner to take some pillow covers back to Pottery Barn so Mike and I divvied up the kids and I got Charlie! SCORE!!! {Really, when you're flipping a coin for who gets what kid for errands, it's always the winning pick when you get the 8 year old over the toddler}.

Charlie grabbed $20 from his drawer "just in case" we went in the Lego store -- which, of course, this mama could never deny him! I made sure to pack my camera because I love shooting in the Lego store with all the colors and all those happy faces! But oy! The WB and exposure issues in that store - not to mention all the darn people - can drive you crazy {this sentence was written for my photog friends - Jamie, Brig, CM-ers - I know no one else cares about my camera lingo!}. Also, very quickly after I pulled my camera out, I was surrounded by employees who were displeased with my shooting their store... Charlie learned that $20 doesn't buy much at the Lego store so he scouted all the sets for anything within his budget. He narrowed it down to three and picked a tow truck... and then mom helped him with the tax. :)

Since the only camera store that has been able to stay in business in the area is in Tyson's Corner, we popped in to look at a piece of equipment I wanted to buy. And then. Then, I also saw this bag... so, I got something new, too. :)

  1. I'm dying to take Avery (and my camera) to the Lego store now! Such a fun obsession :)

  2. I love the shot of him looking at his three options! So many choices!

  3. I care about the WB. :) Did you buy the Exposdisc after this because it was terrible?
