Ever try to take photos of your kids, and they're just being so silly, you can't catch them?

My camera is one of those that seems to take forever to focus, so a lot of times I manage to miss the photo I'm going for. Life with kids in motion, I guess.

I don't really like my camera very much. I wish I'd had a chance to test-drive it before buying it. I based my purchase on reviews and convinced Hubby this was the one to buy, so I'm stuck with it. Looking back, I actually kind of liked my little Pentax Optio M40 that I dropped in the sand and broke last summer better than the camera I have now. Kind of wish I'd just got another of that one, since it's smaller and easier and WAY more portable for things like backpacking trips, etc. Maybe I can find a deal on one. I definitely don't have $350 just lying around to blow on an extra camera.

Anyway, back to the original topic. My kids were goofing around and being cute yesterday and I was trying to photograph them, but they were just too fast for me. I'd miss the looking-at-the-camera-and-smiling moments and get these half faces and closed eyes.

Still, somehow I think they managed to capture the perfect joy of my babies. My ever-moving babies. Oh, how I love them.
