Default what lens and batt to buy? Canon Rebel xti

The G/f and I are goign to cali in july and want to get some camera upgrade before we go.

beginner photographers, mainly do it for fun.

we have a Canon Rebel EOS Kiss which is the same as the XTi

Lenses we have are:

hand me down 28 mm 1:2.8
35-105 mm 1:4.5 5.6
EF 70-100 mm 1:4-5.6 IS

we just have the one battery that came with it and looking to get a looking to get a grip/batt holder.

one is this which uses battery packs or 6 AA's
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc....html#includes

or this which has built in non removable battery pack
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc..._Grip_for.html


then I'd like to find a decent Macro lens but don't really know what to look for that is good yet somewhat affordable.

also interested in lens hoods but i'm hoping thats simple enough to find.
possibly this for the 70-300
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...Lens_Hood.html

and some people I know are for a uv filter and some aren't. what would be good to look for there? we have 2 now one is UV HAZE and the other is SKYLIGHT (1B)
But I have no idea which should be on what lens or what they would be good for.

Yes we are new to it and would like to take some classes or something to learn these things but right now there isn't time to do that.

thanks for the help.

I would say the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro is a pretty decent lens for the price. Also pretty good for portrait stuff. Probably my next investment.
