Point & shoot

Way back in "76" I planned a trip to Europe. The whole thing fell through when my parents reminded me I owed them a lot of $ (car loan). I purchased a Minolta XD 11 for the nixed Euro tour and I still use it occasionally to this day. Being impressed with the XD, I naturally drifted to Minolta when we went digital. My 3 yr old destroyed the new digital (only took a couple minutes). The cash to fix it is the price of a new camera ($200-$300) so I picked up a new digital which shall remain nameless (Hey, I'm taking pics of my kids). The Minolta remains trashed (and may remain so).
All this to say....I think I'm ready for an SLR again (digital). I haven't looked around much due to the prices but they're coming down to reality.
I found this site quite by accident & I'm not much of a forum guy. This is a big step but I have two boys (4 & 5 yrs) who are a couple of my favorite people and most of our pics are the kids. So I'm here to read others' experiences and travails regarding DSLRs and make a purchase decision I can live with.
Also, "Hello everyone". I'll be reading with interest.
