As most of you know, before sweet Raleigh came into the picture, I convinced that we needed to buy a super nice camera...it took me a while to persuade him, but in January, we finally bought one. It was awesome. A camera that serious photographers have dreams about. We absolutely loved our new Nikon camera.... until it fell in the Frio River. That's right, IT FELL IN THE FRIO RIVER!!! We thought the days of pretending we knew what we were doing when we were taking pictures were over. The beautiful Nikon would not turn on. It was looking like we were going to have an expensive paperweight on our hands. When we got back from Leakey, we took it in to the camera store. We were just hoping there was something they could do to save it. She took the camera and turned it on and started taking pictures and then commented, "Hmm, there doesn't seem to be a problem... it is working just fine for me." Our mouths dropped open. The Nikon had come back to life!!! Yipppeee!! We were amazed and astonished...the people in the camera store thought we were idiots. Maybe we are, but we have a camera that works baby!!
