Give me back that Filet of Fish....

A couple weeks ago I was pretty sick and had to go pick up a prescription from the pharmacy Late one night. Seth didn't want me to go alone and I didn't want to stay home alone while he went and got it, so we made it a family outing of sorts...
While waiting for my prescription to get filled, we walked the aisles. Rocco came across these singing fish and danced for about 15 minutes straight... it was SO funny!

When Rocco Grows Up...

Our Future Missionary!
Funny Rocco Story:

The other night at Grammy and Grampa Purcell's house, we were talking about Sammy and how much longer he has on his mission and such. Grammy Purcell (Kylene) turned and asked:
"Rocco, where are you gonna go on your mission? Are you gonna go to Samoa like Grampa? or Holland like Dadddy?..." she continued to list places, but Rocco told her no he wasn't going on his mission to any of those places.
So Kylene asked him:
"Where are you gonna go on your mission then?"
His Response:
I love my little boy!

Snapsort Contest

Well, here's the dealio. I'm not usually one for entering contests, but every now and then, when I htink it's worth it, I'll enter one. My chance at winning the contests: zilch! I've never won anything, and I doubt that will ever change, but I can't help trying!
So what contest is this blogpost about? Well there's this cool website called Snapsort (, that basically is the tell-all/ know-all, when it comes to digital cameras and video cameras. Anyhow Snapsort is throwing this contest and basically all I have to do is tell you about them, and what I like about them, and then I'm entered... so here goes:
Honestly, this site is awesome! (and i'm not just saying that cuz I want to win... I love this site because---) They give reviews on just about all new cameras and camera equipment being released, so you can make educated well-informed camera purchase decisions.
With all the photography I do, I often get people asking me what type of camera I'd suggest they get. I just send them to this website. Why? I don't know everything about every camera and I don't know your preferences and tastes, but this website will tell you the pros and cons to the cameras you are looking over. If you don't even know where to start, it's got this nifty little thing where you can put in your camera budget, say whether you want a DSLR or video camera, and then say tell me where to go, and it will give you it's top picks! It tells you what they love about the camera's they show you and what they don't love, and it also gives you a couple runner-up's so you still have options should you not like the'r first choices... Love it! Also they've recently added this new feature where others can rate and compare cameras, so you get multiple people's feedback on the camera before you ever purchase... NICE!
Okay, so once you pick your camera, and purchase it at the best price, you can still come back to this great website, for all it's awesome advice! I love that they give tips for camera equipment, for photographing different ages and for different cool effects. I learn a lot from their website... Check it out!
