New Camera!

I have saved and worked hard to get a new camera. It's been so fun to try it out and even attempt manual mode (ahhhhh!!!). I still have a lot to learn, but hopefully ya'll will get to witness the improvement in my pictures as I go through school and figure everything out.
So, after reading the manual a little bit, I went outside with my sister to just take some random photos. She was in town for only 26 hours, and I probably won't see her for about a year because she will be moving to Italy in the Fall, so i thought I'd get some pretty pictures of her before she left. My dad even sneaked in to get some camera time. OH goodness.

this one quite frankly just makes me giggle.
