My how these kids grow.  Seth has been a super baby... so well mannered, fun to entertain, good eater/sleeper.  And healthy, until this week when he got the croupy cough from the other kids.  Still cute as a button.

back to the future with Honda

We have owned a few Honda's... and here's one we probably won't be owning...
the new Accord Crossover

Price tag (just under $30k)
When I first saw it advertised, I knew I had seen its predecessor before...when I was 9 years old.

 Price (probably around $6400 new)

Introduced in 1980, the Eagle became one of the company's best-known products and is considered one of the first "crossover SUVs". It had a Concord body shell mounted on an all-new platform that had been developed by American Motors in the late 1970s. Featuring an innovative full-time four-wheel drive system, it sold best in snow-prone areas. Sales started strongly but declined over time. The Eagle survived, albeit only in station wagon form, into the 1988 model year. The last one was built on December 14, 1987. (source)

scott's eyes

I put this one on my flickr account.
Forgive my conceited opinion, but from the time Scott was really little I thought he would be a very photogenic baby model... but I couldn't ruin any of my kids with that kind of gig.

So here is our family model.  Although all of our kids were adorable.  (I hope every parent feels the same of their babies)
Our photogenic child

playing with ISO

Some know of my other blog that gets updated on occasion.  Well, I was talking about low lighting and not using flash indoors.  So one thing you can do is turn up your ISO.  Most cameras, even point and shoot cameras, allow the user to change the ISO.  It is usually set from 100 to 1600 but can go much higher in the real high end cameras.  Anyway, try it sometimes.  Just beware, as your ISO goes higher, your quality may diminish.  Here I set the ISO at 400 for these shots so I didn't have to bother with a flash.
