Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Milk

Ayyy maties. There was this really cool pirate ship play scape set up in the middle of an outdoor shopping center in Scottsdale. Ty couldn't wait to climb up it and take control of the wheel. That's Gpop's hand sticking in and helping to spin the wheel and make Ty giggle.

No Dad, You Da Man

Using the flash at night can produce some cool results when you have a cute cooperative subject like I do. By the way Ty, we don't point with the middle finger. (We are all working on helping him with that one)

Behind Bars

"Dad, please let me out of jail. I promise to try some new foods other than pizza or chicken nuggets!"

Bobby Fischer

Our game of chess doesn't follow the rules, but Ty is learning what all the pieces are called. He also enjoys balancing things on top of the castle.

Spurs in the Desert

Ty models his San Antonio Spurs shirt in the Arizona desert. Perhaps he was sending a subtle message to the Phoenix Suns that the Playoff race is far from over. (OK, he didn't plan that, but it sounds good now with the two teams battling it out for the #2 seed)

Spring Training

Take me out to the ballgame... Ty's first MLB game at Maryvale park in Arizona. We went to see the Brewers take on the Angels. It was about 90 degrees in the sun and we didn't last more than 4 innings. But here's our boy chomping on a hot dog enjoying the action. We also saw our former neighbor Brian Anderson who now does the play-by-play for the Brewers. Check out his blog by clicking here.

According to Ty's rules of engagement: he can squirt you as much as he wants with the water gun, but don't squirt him back. Sounds fair, right?

Random Diversion

This post really isn't about Ty, more about his Dad finding funny things to do on the internet. Like this game on the South Park website that lets you create your own character. Perhaps this is how I might appear in one of their episodes. Visit and see what you can come up with. Feel free to share your image in the comments.

The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades

Here begins our pictures from the trip to AZ last month. In the mornings, Ty and I would take a walk around the hotel before breakfast. The light is especially pretty in the desert at this time of day and Ty was happy to show off his new cool shades we bought for the trip.
