I was listening to a tech podcast in the car with Grayson this morning on our morning commute. On the podcast they were discussing automation taking over jobs. He asked me, “Dad, are robots taking over?” “Well”, I said, “they sort of are with jobs like truck drivers and cashiers.” “What about your job, Dad?”
It feels like Grayson has leaped into being a big kid. He loves a good ‘bathroom’ joke, loves to play Legos, go to the park, ride on the ‘tag-a-long’ bike with dad play with his neighbor friends. I snapped a few photos after dinner tonight. Told him he owed me for the sucker I left
Back in November Mrs Shoo and I went up to Starved Rock State Park for a hike-away weekend. We had never been and spent most of the day exploring on the trails.
I am not an artist. I wish I could draw. I wish I could paint. But I can’t. Luckily I can take photos.
On a whim we headed north to the Lincoln Balloon Festival. We met up with Mike, Sarah, and Colbie. It was good times. And there was a special shaped balloon. Darth Vader. Grayson was a big fan of Darth Vader. He started singing his song when he saw it.
I had enough for another post. Here’s more of G from downtown.
Grayson and I have been having some bonding time since I was gone last weekend. After nap, he asked if he could take pictures with a (un-audible) camera. Having no idea what he was asking to take pictures with. We have lots of cameras. He takes me downstairs where I have some old film cameras.
A love of music? A love of cheese burgers? A love of hanging out with friends? All of the above. Lollapalooza has become a pilgrimage for me for the last couple of years. I’ve been going on a somewhat regular basis since 2007 (yes, the year of Daft Punk). For the last two years though
Okay, so a little more than 3 questions.
