Photographer moms! I have a question for you!

I am in need of a camera.  This time I am looking for something a little nicer than just a standard camera.  Im not a photographer nor an amateur photographer, and im not really looking to become one.  I just like taking tons of pictures and would love a camera that will do a better job than my kodak c340.  Plus I am wanting something that can take better quality family pictures.  I heard that DSLR cameras are the best, but I find them out of my price range, and probably out of my league.  Again, not looking to be a pro.  So I was looking at these cameras.  I don't know which one would be good for what I am wanting to do.  Of course I want the best quality, at the best price.  I can afford to spend some time to become familiar with the camera, just not several months lol.  So even if it has a little bit of learning requirements im fine, as long as its not too much.  I have been looking on amazon, just for specs.  Not sure if I am wanting to buy from there, just getting ideas and that's the first place I look.  If you could give suggestions, or look at the camera links I have put up and tell me what you think, it would be GREATLY appreciated.  Thank you =)

P.S.  I read on the internet that the higher the MPs does not always determine the best picture quality, that it mostly has to do with the lens and its ability to capture light?  If this is true, I guess that would mean something with a wider lens + MPs equals best quality?  Or am I wrong? Thoughts?

I'm not a pro, but I don't recommend the Nikon coolpix. That's the last one I bought and the pictures aren't great at all. And the features are pretty outdated compared to others in the same price range!

I'd go with the Nikon CoolPix L110. It'll take beautful pictures.

I don't trust the lower end Fujifilm cameras.

Really?  Thats interesting.  Thank you.  I was actually looking more towards the nikon because I heard that they are one of the best, but I will definitely keep what you said in mind.  Thanks again =)
