From a recent trip to Meijer Garden

RIP Canon Powershot SD750

After about 10,000 photos, the camera that we bought to document Max's birth finally gave up. While the timing wasn't great, we obviously can't live without one.

Here's the first shot on the new camera, hopefully the first of another 10,000!

For those of you who get the emailed version of the blog, sometimes the posts may be very out of order, and seem old and out of date. I will frequently back-date posts when I don't have a chance to post them when the events happen. That's why.

A weekend away

For my birthday, Bobbie Jo surprised me with a trip to a Tiger's game. She secretly arranged it with four of my friends, and booked us an awesome room in Greektown. Her parents graciously watched Max for the weekend, even though they are in the middle of a huge remodel.

One of the guys wasn't able to come, as his wife went into labor the day before (their third child and first son-Samuel). The Tigers lost 10-1, a guy 20 rows behind us died from a heart attack during the game, and we each lost about $200 to the Greeks. But the weekend away was much needed, and we had a blast.

When I arrived at Grandma Sharon and Grandpa Steve's to pick Max up, he was fast asleep in his grandma's arms. I was glad to capture such a great shot of Grandma and Grandson.

Max the Photographer

Max got ahold of the camera today.

Max's First Baseball Game

I came up with the brilliant idea that a hyperactive two-and-a-half year old was ready to see his first baseball game. He loves watching the Tigers with me, and was very sad a few weeks back when I left for a game and he wasn't able to go with me.

Bobbie Jo, Gagi, Max, and I piled in the car to take him to Fifth Third park to see the Whitecaps. We had to remind him the entire (ten minute) ride, that we were going to see baseball, not play baseball.

While he was excited to go, he spent the majority of the two innings we were there running around. He definitely wasn't going to let me teach him how to keep score.

I think next year, that'll be when I can really get him interested. But, it was an adventure, and those adventures are always worth it!

Words do not do these pictures justice

Started with sprinkler. Then eating sand. Then loss of diaper.

Bath obviously followed.
