We have been going nonstop since we returned from vacation. Now, I think we’ll have a few days where we can finally breathe before we jump back into the chaos toward the end of the week and into the weekend. Such is life in the summertime, right?
On Wednesday, my dad got into town for a visit from Virginia. He hadn’t met Hunter yet, so he came up to see his new grandson (and the rest of us, too). We hadn’t seen him since our wedding last year, so it was definitely time! So, the last several days, I’ve been spending as much time as possible with my dad, which has also meant lots of extra time with a certain nephew that I am absolutely in love with.
My dad left to go back home around noon today, and I think he was especially sad to be leaving little Hunter. It’s so hard to leave when there is a baby involved. It’s heartbreaking when you know that the next time you see them, they’ll have changed so much!
Yesterday, we had quite the fun family outing planned. The weather was gorgeous; we could not have asked for a more perfect Saturday.
We started off the afternoon at Trevor and Kara’s house, just hanging out with my dad. Meanwhile, Hunter took a snooze:
After an hour or so, Kara’s mom came to babysit Hunter while we all got out to enjoy the day. We started off by going out to dinner and enjoying a few beers, then ended up at a Triple A baseball game. We lucked out, because the weather could not have been more perfect for baseball.
Conveniently, Michael and I borrowed a telephoto lens from one of his coworkers for the weekend. We had my sister-in-law’s high school graduation to go to today (a post on that to come tomorrow), and since she was valedictorian, I really wanted to be able to get some decent photos of her. Our lenses weren’t going to get the job done, so it was nice we had the opportunity to use the telephoto one. Anyway, we decided to bring it to the game so I could practice with it a little bit.
Here are some of my shots:
As an aside, I am still working on catching up on blog posts from vacation. I don’t know if anyone really even gives a crap at this point, but I figured I’d point it out in case some of you haven’t seen them. I am done with Seattle, and working on San Francisco. I hope to be all caught up in the next day or two, including an anniversary post!
