I have more photos, will upload them soon, hopefully. My baby turned 7 on Tuesday. He's getting big. He got magnetics sets, a Trilogy game and a Battleship game along with some birthday spending money. He got lots of treats and we all had a nice time. Birthdays are a good way to take family photos, because you have the excuse of taking the photo of the cake, and just need to have people in the background.

I had to admit my favorite camera - a point-and-shoot 35mm - is broken. I don't think it's worth the money to fix it. Steve found a clearance 35 mm camera for $70. I got that instead, and am figuring out how to work it. I'm still on the first roll of film, but am optimistic that it's a decent quality camera. It has some zoom, and lots of options. I think digital photography has replaced the film cameras and I'm seeing a lot of sales. The film cameras aren't lagging in quality yet, but there will be fewer choices soon enough. Digital camera technology is improving rapidly, and getting much more affordable.

I saw a bird at the bird feeder last week. The first of the season. The snow is almost all melted off, too.
