My Birthday Present

I have to announce my exciting birthday gift from Jim & Beth!!! (Paul's Dad and step-ma)
I got a new and beautiful camera!! I don't know how to use most of it and it will probably take most of the next two years or so to learn how to use it, but it is for sure our new toy!!! I got a Canon PowerShot SX10 IS which is not an SLR (decided that I did not want to go that far, plus I really use the movie features of cameras, as you all know!) but it has got more features than I can handle which is what we were looking for! It has a SUPER zoom though!!! This is always a fun feature that Paul and I both LOVE!!

So, look forward to seeing many experiments that I will hopefully find all sorts of time to post them to the blog for all to see and wonder "what the heck was she thinking?" or "she really can not use that camera!!" Either way, it should be a fun adventure. Paul and I also think that it may just take a notch better movies than we have been getting. We shall see.

So, I of course had to make a new home for the camera. I just did not want to get one of those awful looking, bulky camera bags that I end up never using because they take up way too much space in my bag. But, I wanted something that would protect the new toy... check it out.

Pretty cute, heh? Well, I like it and even though it is pretty girly, Paul really likes it too.
I can just toss it into my purse and the camera is safe.

The crazy thing is that after an outing or a couple days of using this camera, when I go to download the pics, instead of having 70 pictures, I have like, 300!! Then it is work to weed through it all and delete about 150. When you have a fun camera, you take pictures of all sorts of things... LUCKY YOU!!!
Don't have a pic of the new camera cause I am always using it!!! :)
