POD: Date Night Selfie

2014-09-19 22.22.52

Tonight Melissa and I shared an unexpected date night, and you would think on a night like this I might use a picture of the 2 of us, or maybe some of our dates activities. I decided to go another way. I captured a selfie while waiting for our movie to start. Now a selfie itself probably wouldn’t make it as my picture of the day, but after playing with my phones effects, I thought hey why not.

POD: MineCraft Getaway


Today we have a picture from one of my MineCraft worlds. It’s taken a while for me to try it, but with Jacob spending so much time playing I thought I should give it a try. It’s a surprisingly addictive game, one that I’m really enjoying playing with my boy.

POD: Rubys Small Stick


Today while we were out for a walk Ruby found her self a little stick. So out came the camera and I had a picture of the day.

POD: What is this Daddy?


Today Jacob asked me a question that I never really expected to hear. He held up todays picture of the day and asked, What’s this Daddy? I couldn’t help but laugh, we’ve all see the posts online saying our kids wouldn’t know what things were, I just didn’t expect it so soon. I asked him what he thought it was and he said it was a video tape. I think it’s a pretty good guess, I just have to show him what a real video tape looks like, if I can find one.

Today Jacob got a short chess lesson from my Dad. It’s the first of what we hope to be many lessons. Jacob really seems interested in learning to play chess and I’m so glad that my dad is able to teach him. I might have to keep an eye on these lessons, I might pick up a few pointers.

POD: Coffee Break

Today we celebrated Nate the Greats birthday. It was a great time and I took tons of picture, that I hope one day to go through and share, but for now I’ll leave you with a picture Melissa captured at the end of the day. I think it speaks for itself.

POD: Streetcar of the Future


After weeks of trying to find an opportunity to ride the new streetcars today I finally did. I came close on Wednesday but just didn’t have the time to wait for one of the two new streetcars. Today I had the time and the good fortune of not having to wait long before one arrived at Spidina station.  I’ve known for a while that they would be better then our existing streetcars, but I didn’t realize how much better. I can’t wait till there are more of them on the road.

POD: Rubys new bone

POD: Game 20


This evening I have another picture from the Blue Jays Game. It was the 20th game I’ve been to the ball park this season. I was also playing with a feature of my phones camera, it probably would have worked better if I was facing the scoreboard instead of standing under it.

POD: 4 Faces of Jacob


Today we have a 4 pack of pictures of Jacob that Melissa took while out with the kids before Violets first ballet class of the new season. I wanted to use a picture of my little dancer, but tonight she insisted on no pictures. So Jacob will have to stand in.
