Friday we began the morning with a visit to the Flour Mill Bakery to pick up some popcorn kernels and delicious donuts. Saturday we had lunch together and gave Phil his first father's day present - a cute pictures of Joel and tickets to a Detroit Tiger's baseball game for the following Thursday.
Sunday was busy as usually with all the previously mentioned activities and a 6 hour drive to Detroit for a conference at Rochester College. Since we knew we would be spending a lot of quality family time we weren't too concerned about cramming all the family 1st Father's day celebrating in to one day. It was really a week of fun activities enjoying our new life as a family of three.
Here the picture I gave to Phil as a gift along with the tickets -
Monday and Tuesday Phil spent the days at the Streaming Conference at our alma mater, Rochester College. Tuesday evening we did sneak away for a date. Wednesday I went to Rochester with Phil. He spent the morning at the conference while I visited with a friend. In the afternoon we visited with a few more friends and spent time walking around campus and eating at our favorite restaurant - Lipumas.

Thursday was the big day - Joel's first major league baseball game. We set out for Comerica Park at 12noon. The weather called for storms and temperatures in the 90's. It did end up being super hot but the rain stayed away until after the game. We planned ahead though and bought tickets in the shade and there was a beautiful breeze the entire time. The pictures will speak for themselves of how Joel enjoyed the game. We can't wait to go back. And they even won beating the St. Louis Cardinals!
The following two pictures are how Joel spent the entire game. He was either so enthralled with watching the action that he couldn't look at me or his daddy or he was so excited that he was laughing, smiling and drooling. He didn't fuss the entire time and only took a 30 minute cat nap for fear of missing something.
