Who let the dogs out? Who let them crazy muts gooooo!

I took the work camera home over the weekend for a couple of events that I thought might require something a little more than the Sony Point-and-Shoot.

Don't get me wrong, I love my Sony DSC-H10. Sometimes, though, you just need a camera with a little more "lens."

 Indiana June 2013

This is Indian after demolishing a stick she found in the yard. Happy puppy. I was trying to focus in on her eyes, but she kept moving so I mostly got her nose in focus and her eyes are a bit blurred.

Hudson was a bit more cooperative.


Not by much, but still a little calmer during his photo shoot.

Of course, while my brother is not a pet of mine, he does looks like a dog who just discovered the front gate was left open.

Geoff Ekey and the KC Royals Pop Fly Challenge

He was part of the KC Royals Pop Fly Challenge before Friday's game. They put him out in right field and lobbed a few balls at him. He caught all three and won a $25 gift certificate for the Royals team store — which might buy him a hat or keychain.

One year down


One year ago today I — and about 40 of my closest friends and family — were gathering in a small chapel outside the casino of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

We had already spent the last 24 hours drinking and celebrating everything that was leading up to this moment.

When soon-to-be- wife walked into the chapel I knew, from that moment, that she and I were starting a whole new adventure with one another.

A new job
New friends
New house
New degrees
New dog
A baby...

And that is all just in the first year.

Unlike most traditional weddings, we did not have a cake where we could save a piece for our anniversary. Instead, we save the chocolate bars the MGM Grand gave after the wedding and broke off a couple of pieces for breakfast.

If our first year as husband and wife is setting the pace of the rest of our life together, then year two is going to be circus.

Get ready. Because with my best friend by my side, we are just getting started here.
