I took the girls to the aquarium and decided not to take my Nikon because I didn't want to lug it around. I took my little Olympus point and shoot and tried to get a few pictures. After using my Nikon for so long and then going back to my little camera, I realized why I love it so much and why a DSLR is so much better than a point and shoot (for me anyway). Needless to say, the pictures for the day didn't turn out the way I wanted. Lesson learned, it is worth lugging around the big camera to get the shot you want.
