I want a lens with F2.8 so I can take pictures at night.. I have one that goes 70-200 F2.8 but you have to stand back so far.. and it's heavy.. I use it for football night pictures..

Are we still stopping the FE at Thanksgiving? I'm starting to put everything together and want it boxed up and sealed by Friday the 29th.. once the 1st hits for me.. I'm going to be working 15 -20 hours a day until the 11th..

I have extra boys and girls stuff so if someone does want to join.. I could easily do the kids.. but the adults.. my mom made stuff and would be hard to do.. we could buy them something though.. I hate to turn anyone away.. especially kids..

let me know.. I would also like to put cabin numbers on everything.. will we have them by Friday? if not.. it's okay.. would be easier if we had them..

I can't believe this is my last weekend to breath before my hurricane of work hit.. this is probably why I don't go on vacation that often.. it's so much work just to get away.. but it's freezing here.. can't wait to get warm..

Happy Saturday.. hope everyone has a great day..

The one I have my beady eyes on is a Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens. I only got my DSLR in time for our Alaska cruise this year so I think the standard lens kit that came with it (18-55mm) and this one will do me for a while.

I hear you on being busy. We are officially on vacation once we finish work in 9 days time. I am back at work tomorrow after a week off and including tomorrow, I have 7 days at work left. During this time, I have to do 5.5 hours call monitoring, have two admin days, spend most of one day conducting training and have two team nights out (one with my own team and one with our team leader group). I have got two days off midweek and on those I have to wrap presents for 4 different Secret Santas and mail them, finish off the gifts for one of them, which is a home-made Secret Santa and have a manicure and pedicure done. I also have to finalize the last few odds and ends for this trip. I will be so ready for a vacation by the time it comes along.

I just looked.. it looks like Jessica booked for a cruise on 12/8 instead of ours.. I saw her most recent posting.. bummer.. it would be nice to have more people.. but I like our group.. I looked on another FE group.. they had 37 adults and 80 some kids.. wow.. that would be crazy trying to do for all those people.. I'm happy to have been able to do more for our group... my mom made some neat things.. I was hoping to have one left over for me.. right now we have one extra.. I'm good with one extra..

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday..

It's almost turkey day... hope everyone has done their shopping..

I did order my lens.. it should be here tomorrow.. I just can't imagine spending all this money on a vacation without the right hardware for my camera.. thank you mom..

by getting the extra lens.. should help me from taking several others.. so my camera bag will be lighter.. I'm all for that.. now the question is... which cameras's to take.. If you didn't know by know.. I'm a camera crazy mom.. ask Jonathan..

I am glad that you got your lens. I got mine on Sunday evening as I noticed that within a day it had gone from 4 available to one available. It arrived on Monday. I will take my Nikon DSLR and my Panasonic Lumix underwater camera.
