Batting Cages

Alex loves going to the batting cages. After we rode our bikes we went to play putt putt. Alex found the batting cages and he loves doing that.
We've even skipped riding and just went to the batting cages.

He also likes to ride on the go karts.

A Day of Fun

I decided to take Alex out to the park today so he could get experience riding his bike. He also needs to build up his confidence level. He did well, It's a mile around the track and I was sure he would only make it around once. He surprised me we did it 4 times around.

We had a picnic lunch, and he played on the playground for about a short while. He wanted to go play putt putt golf.

The grounds were set up with pirate ships. After we started playing and got to the pirate it started talking, Alex got surprised by that.

After a day out in the hot sun he came home and went straight into the pool.

Night Photography

Last night I decided to do some night photography. I used the guidelines the instructor gave during class. I didn't have the correct hookup then but I do now.
It was just after 10pm last night, I focused on that star and the dead tree in mamaws yard. I opened the camera up for 30 sec in the above picture. In the below picture I kept the same setting and opened the camera up for 1 min. You can see how much light was let in, I didn't think but I should have taken one without opening the camera so you could see how much darker it would have been.

This picture above is the same as the first 2 but the camera was held open for 2 minutes. So it got even lighter.

The next 2 pictures above I change focus on to the moon and I also changed settings on the camera. The first picture is at 1 min and the second pic is at 2 min.On these last 3 pictures I changed focus to lesser light but kept the same setting. My focus was on the light from the window of the trailor. First picture was 1 min, second picture was 2 min, and the third picture the camera was opened for 4 min. It's amazing to me, and I'm shocked I could do it.

Vacation Bible School

Alex went to bible school with Sandi and Tamra last week. This was on the last day when parents came to watch. Taylor was one of the youths that taught the motions to the children.
I got a couple pictures of him doing his thing. I know he was probably wishing they would get the camera off him.

There's alex in the back row and part of tamras head. Alex had fun he enjoyed attending.

The Good Stuff

Today the 3 of us took some garbage to the dump and decided to go out for lunch. We went to pizza plus. While waiting for our pizza the power went out for about 30sec. Then it started getting dark outside, and then strong winds came and then buckets of rain and lighting.

Tamra after she put pizza in her mouth, and Alex trying to eat his pizza with a never ending string of cheese.

When we left the resturant the rain had slowed down a little. In the meantime I couldn't get phone calls but you were able to leave me a voicemail, and I got notice of that. I even lost internet service, which meant no t.v. but I survived, and everythings back to normal.

The Wild Bunch

Here's Alex with Cooper & Carsyn. When you put all of Linda's grandbabies together you have a wild bunch, especially her she a handful. Alex enjoyed playing with them, they are sweet though.
Here's the gang at dinner, she had her share of tomatoes and onions before dinner. YUK!

Alex has had other boys to play with 2 brothers on one side of Iney and another boy on the other side of Iney. Didn't see him much when we were there.

A day with no rain

This is my first full day with no rain. It has done nothing but rain in Michigan for the past 2 months, at least once or twice a day. I had to come to Pennington gap to get away from the rain. Alex and Tamra played in the pool today. Alex got sunburned his little white face is red. I did come armed with spray for sunburn relief, as of now he says it doesn't hurt.
