I think the new camera is going to work out! I ended up buying a Fuji 1500 based on several recommendations and it truly is easy to point and click. It has a few bells and whistles which, hopefully, I will learn in time. And it's not one of those credit card ones that I couldn't manage with my arthritic hands. This one looks like an old fashioned camera and fits my hand. I'd take a picture of it but...I couldn't figure out how to take a picture of my camera with my camera. :)
This picture I took last night at a football game. My son is a coach and it was a very pleasant evening for a game, not hot and not cold. His wife and three children were there so that was fun for me. I even got a video of the 3 year old girl sort of dancing to the band - she couldn't decide if she wanted to or not so it was half hearted but cute to us.
And have you noticed that the cute things your grandchildren do aren't cute at all when performed exactly the same by other people's grandchildren? Well, maybe they're cute, but not nearly as cute as when your grandchildren do them!
