Griffin & I at Nats Opening Day 2012

Griffin and I went to opening day this year at Nats Park to watch the DC Nationals kick the crap out of the Cinncy Reds!  We had a blast.  We started off on the Metro and the on to the Game.  We got there in plenty of time for the opening day festivities along with getting our FREE opening day hats!  After the first inning, we took off for some Ben’s Chili Bowl action.  The line was long, but SO worth the wait.  We got back to our seats for the start of the third inning and watched the lack luster game.  Not until the 5 inning did it start to get exciting.  It just so happened that some one was getting a little bored too.

We stuck it out till the 7th inning stretch and then headed home.  We took a bunch of photos through the day and had a great time. We capped it off with a stop at 7-11 for a much needed Slurpee! I think my favorite Griffin quote of the day had to be… “We need to kidnap Daddy one day and take him to a game…” followed by “We’ll just throw Gary, (Jonathan’s boss) in the river!”.  Never a dull moment I tell you!

Here are all the photos from the day on my Flickr page. And yes, Teddy lost AGAIN… One of these days he’ll win.

Griffin and I With Our 33 Shirts

Olivia and Griffin made 33 shirts for my 33rd birthday this year!  This has been sitting on my iPhone along with plenty of other images for some time.  I thought it was time to share them.  I still have my 33 shirt and love it!  It was really nice of them to make the shirts.  It really put that smile on my face! thanks guys!

Christmas Tree Hunting 2011

We went Christmas tree hunting this year with Griffin and Olivia.  If they had their way, we would have been done 10 minutes into the hunt with every other tree “looking good”. But our fearless leader Renee was on the hunt for the perfect tree. Not only did it have to be a specific kind, but it had to have strong branches!

In the end, we found the perfect tree with soggy feet but spirits still high as that meant it was tractor time! Yes, the highlight was the tractor ride to take the tree back to the car and get it strapped to the top.  I think there was a cup of hot apple cider thrown in there.  Hell if I know, I was tasked with strapping the tree down.

After that, it was time to get home, trim the tree and get the lights on it, but not before pizza.  Now the fun part begins, getting presents under the tree!

More Griffin

I think I have found one of my new favorite subjects to photograph.  I don’t know if he is posing for me or understands what I am doing, but he seems pretty natural if you ask me.
