New Lens!!

So my wife, being the great wife that she is, didn't try very hard to dissuade me from getting a new lens for my camera. You may have heard we're heading down to Havasu Falls and the Grand Canyon in the near future and i figured a really wide angle lens would come in handy. I've debated it for almost three months now, and go figure finally made the decision with a week to spare (granted, i had to pay higher shipping). As you can see, it's not much for portraits (which i expected), but these pics were cracking me up!

My new lens is a Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6. I've used a Sigma lens before (on my old SLR), but i was a little nervous about quality control - a lot of reviews indicated their lenses didn't focus right or there were soft spots on the lens, but so far i haven't noticed any of that.

BTW, notice anything different about Jen (other than her giagantic head)?

This might be a little tougher, but there's actually two new things to notice about Anya.

Jen didn't want me to post this pictures, but i think it's hilarious. (I think he looks like Brain from Pinky and the Brain.

I HATE that last picture! I SO did not want you to post it! Besides, watching you almost cry from laughing so hard is the funniest thing about the photos.

Oh my goodness!!!! Those are freaking hilarious. I seriously want one of each of my kids. I'll totally frame them all. And did Jen chop her hair? I realize Anya's missing some teeth, but you didn't cut her hair, too, did you? Seriously. I love these pictures so much. Especially the one of Brain.

OK. So I'm still laughing out loud. I love these pictures so much. I almost love Jen's the most. So funny. I will be looking at these daily.

I should probably mention that this lens is probably a rental. I looked at renting it for our upcoming trip and realized it would cost well over $100 (closer to $200) and that for that amount, i might as well buy and if i don't think i'll need it again, just sell it and it will have been cheaper than the rental. But with pics like this, who'd want it sell it? Oh yeah, Jen would.

Great haircut Jen!!! I love it. I love short hair. I am laughing about the last picture. It doesn't even look like the same kid!!! Anya's teeth and just falling out everywhere aren't they. So cute.
