Photo-A-Day #1661

Today we took Eva over to Attleboro Farms after Church. Our friend Greg owns the place and his wife Adrienne went to school with me but met Allison through Swimming lessons at the YMCA. I swear Allison makes more connections with my old friends through the YMCA. Whenever I went there I hardly ever saw anyone I knew. However, it is great that the YMCA has so many programs and that Allison and Eva can go to them together.

At Attleboro Farms there was a bounce house, popcorn, and face painting. We started with the bounce house and there was another little girl in there with Eva so I didn’t take any pictures. I suppose I could have asked the kids mom if it was okay if I took pictures of Eva while her kid was in the house. I always feel a little weird about that. I’ve got to get over it though. Watching Eva have fun without having the camera with me was nice though. She would run up to the sides and we would touch hands and she would bounce off and fall over, again and again. She loved it.

After bouncing Eva sat so still and quiet while she had her face painted. I took a few shots as she did that.

Holding Still


Like my Ghost


So Serious


All Done


After that we ran over to BJ’s to do some shopping. We were pretty wiped out when we were done so when we came home Eva went down for a nap (she fell asleep practically before we left the parking lot.) I fell asleep for 2 hours as well. All these conferences catching up with me. Well it is back to the grind tomorrow. One more week till Halloween. Can’t wait.

With Halloween coming I have been thinking of what my costume will be. Eva will be Tinkerbell and I thought maybe Peter Pan but I doubt that green tights are my thing. I did contribute to the Raging Tech Contest for the Win a “Blogger Costume” in this EPIC Halloween Giveaway Contest. I met Raging Tech (David Myers) at IZEAFest and he’s a great guy. So when he asked me if I’d contribute something to the Halloween Costume I said sure and I sent him a BenSpark.com water bottle. David got a number of other things as well for the costume like:

    It was a beautiful day yesterday. glad to hear you got out and enjoyed it. Looks like Eva was having a good time. That seagull I sent you a picture of was perched on a post at the parking lot by the beach. Let me know how to vote for Eva.

    • Drew says:

      Dad,
      I liked the seagull photo. I was amazed at how close you could get without it flying away. Yesterday was a nice day and getting out with Eva was fun. She really enjoyed the bounce house, the face painting and that wore her out enough to take a nap. I did too.

      To vote for Eva you click the link that says vote for Eva. You have to create an account at the Gap and then you can vote. Each link goes to a different voting section, one for each photo. She has three photos and you can vote for all of them.
