On the home front today it was all about Eva. We spent the day together. Allison went to a baby shower for our friend Marybeth. I spent the afternoon with Eva. We took a walk around town and I took my camera. We saw all sorts of things along the way.
I really like the architecture of some of the buildings in town. There is the Grace Episcopal church, and the Library next Door. The church has a beautiful stained glass window that I have only seen from the outside. I will have to go visit the church to get some photos of the window from the inside. Next Door to the Church is our local library. I love this library, it is where I used to go after school to study with my friends when I was in grade school. The building has some very interesting details to it.
Also on the walk I saw a hot air balloon, I took a photo but it was so small and far away that it wasn’t worth putting up. I also saw this cute, but dying, snow woman, or snow child, I can’t tell how big it had been.
I of course also took some photos of Eva. And who wouldn’t want more photos of this adorable kid.
We spent part of the morning taking videos of her on our cell phones and sending them to Allison’s parent’s. I even posted one to my mobile blog. After we were tired of that game I read Eva a great book that we got from Kohls. It was called Dog Train and wasn’t really a book to read, rather it was a lyrics book for the awesome CD that came with it. The book has some amazing songs from bands like Blues Traveler, The Spin Doctors and The Bacon Brother’s. I’ll be reviewing the book on my blog Read To Me, Dad. Allison took a couple of photos of me reading to Eva.
I am under the gun at the moment trying to get this post up and be ready to go out for dinner with our good friends Neil and Andrea. We are going to see a Billy Joel tribute band at the local racetrack (odd venue I know). So I am editing photos on one computer and writing this post with another. I better get even better with my multitasking because I have a new gig starting next month on the IZEA Blog. I got chosen to be a guest blogger for 6 months on the IZEA blog. It was announced today. Also chosen was Skeet. She is awesome and I am glad to be joining the ranks with her alongside guest blogging sensation (in his own mind) Mr. Fab. You know I love you man.
Some other things to note are, Next week I am going to Chicago. I will be having lunch with Posties Robyn and Lisa. I am so excited. Robyn even posted a message about it on her blog Windy City Restaurant Hopper. Lisa saw the post and will be joining the fun as well. We are having lunch at Sweet Baby Rays. I can’t wait for some great BBQ. And after that I will be heading to Indiana where I hope to meet up with Karen from The Pond.
Well, I have to run, record the utter for the day, get ready for tonight and also get all these photos posted. Busy stuff.
