well I am now officially the PROUD new owner of my very own Canon Digital Rebel XTi camera! I am very excited and cannot WAIT to play around with some shots of the kids with it. I just wish it wasn't so stinking hot outside so I could take them to a park or something and take some shots. It hit just over 100 degrees at the hottest part of the day today (it hit 105 yesterday). Good news is that we are over the hump in the day and the sun is heading down a bit so it's not as hot (the thermometer states it is 97.7 degrees right now and that thermometer is in the shade of our covered backporch).
I hope to start sharing pictures in the next few days from the brand new camera!
