A Great Surprise!

So I have been wanting a new fancy camera for a long, long time. I frequently go by Best Buy and look at them and I read about them a lot on the Internet. My brother in law, Mark, got one for Christmas a few years back and I have thought they were so cool ever since. SO... to start it out, Jared had class all day on Saturday and in the midst of running errands, I went by Best Buy to see if they were having any specials. I honestly thought about just buying it (without telling Jared) but then I remembered that we always consult each other before making big purchases, his idea :) So, I played with the camera for a bit then decided to leave, sans the camera. Coincidentally, that afternoon, my parents said they had a surprise for me and to meet them at Highroller Bike shop. I went to the shop and they told me they were buying Jess a new bike and me my new camera!!! YAY! So, Jess picked out her new bike, which is fabulous and then we went and got my camera, memory card and case. I am so excited about it, Thanks Mom and Dad! What a wonderful surprise! I got the Nikon D60 and a memory card that holds around 1,000 pics. Now I just need to learn how to use it! My mom recently got the Nikon D80, so we are planning on taking a class together to learn all the ins and outs. I told Jared and Louie that I hope they like being photographed because my picture taking just went up a notch!

You'll love your camera! I'm addicted to mine. I have a Nikon too! Kate and I have talked about taking classes forever... we just can't seem to get it together. Let me know what class you decide to take. I got mine for Christmas last year and I LOVE it!
