POD: Photo fun

Today’s picture is a picture of me, but for fun I used some of the effects from the LittlePhoto to make it more interesting.


POD: Race Kit


I spent last night trying to figure out how I would get up to the sporting life at Young and Eglington(Actually quite a bit north of Eglington). Today the stars aligned and I found myself heading up to the area for work. So I skipped lunch and picked up my race kit for Sunday’s Sporting Life 10k. No shirt this time, it seems the delivery has been delayed, we’ll pick them up after the race on Sunday. It’s quite exiting to be preparing for my second race. Of course the big one is in 2 weeks when I run the Half Marathon.

POD: Fueling up!

Today Melissa and I headed to the Running room and got me some Gu. Energy Gel. It seems strange that my runs are now long enough that I need an energy boost in the middle of them.

POD: Choosing a Reward


Today after school I took Jacob to Mastermind Toys to pick out his reward for going to bed on time without a fight for 14 nights in a row. He was allowed to choose one playmobil that was under $20. It was not an easy decision for him. But after much debate and explaining which were in his budget, he finally choice the Holiday Compact Play Set.

POD: Looking under the Cover


After Violet’s little incident this weekend her car seat cover needed a cleaning. So we pulled it off and washed it, today while looking at her seat, I was struck by how much of it is just Styrofoam… I guess that’s why they have an expiry date and are good for only one accident.

POD: Morning in the Park


Today was a rare Monday that found both Melissa and me home. We were hoping to do more than just house work, but with rain forecasted for the afternoon it didn’t look good. So in the morning we packed up Jacobs T-Ball stuff and some soccer balls and headed to the big park. Jacob tried some batting, catch and even some soccer. It was a great morning.

POD: Egg Hunt


Today’s picture is from our families Easter Egg hunt this morning. Both Jacob and Violet got really into it. So much so they discussed strategies for finding all the eggs.

POD: Afternoon on a Swing


Today the sun came out and the temperature skyrocketed. So after Violet’s nap we headed out to the park. While there Jacob and Violet enjoyed the swings with friends.

POD: A night of Baseball


A pair of tickets for the Bluejays, were offered to Melissa and me. The seats alone were too good to pass up. First row in the 200 level just off home plate. I thought about taking Jacob, but it was an evening game and with Jacob’s new bedtime routine I wasn’t sure he’d be able to handle it. Especially if the game went long, and as it turned out it was a 11 inning affair so its problem a good thing that I didn’t bring him along.  Instead it I took my mom, It was my way if thanking her for all the great stuff she does for us. The game itself was great, the Jays tied the Rays in the 8th and won it in the 11 with a walk off home run by Jonny Mac.
