We had such a relaxed time.  Stayed up and watched episodes of our new favorite show White Collar and went to the beach.  We love them and had so much fun.

to answer the question I have been getting lots...I use the Nikon d40. I love it! I have some really cool lenses with stabilizers . I love to take pics and this makes the hobby much easier. I also like the canon rebel but the nikon buttons are easier and much more user friendly
