Taking a picture in the bathroom with the new point and shoot camera! Its a Canon Powershot 1300. Its very small and fits in my purse, so I can take it everywhere. I am having a hard time getting it to focus correctly.

We made it to Panamint Springs campground in Death Valley National Park, and I am so happy because it only cost $7.50 to camp. That's a deal that you can't find at a national park anymore!
