Let's go Giants!

Nick went to his first baseball game. He found it very acceptable. Unfortunately, the Giants lost to Atlanta.

We had seats almost directly behind the home plate (thanks, Kostadis!) and at some point a camera crewman came by and Nick was on the big screen on the stadium for at least a minute (stupidly I didn't take a picture). The whole stadium (40,000 people or so), went "awwww" and then when we walked around later people were pointing at him and saying "That's the baby!". So he's famous and stuff.

Giants Stadium is really in a pretty spot. Especially

Right behind the home plate.

French fries! Very acceptable.

View from our seats. From this close, baseball is
actually not boring.

Ugly doll

Nick saw this stuffy at the toy store and declared that he wanted it. Then he spent all afternoon hugging it. It's made by the Ugly Doll company and has giant teeth and eyes. Nick doesn't usually care for stuffies, but this one was super awesome apparently.

Where are you dragging me again, you crazy woman?

Beat L.A.!

It's playoffs time. Kostadis is growing a playoffs beard. Nick is, hopefully, growing playoffs hair. Or playoffs teeth. Or something.

Nick got to go to the pre-game street rally in San Jose.

Boys in their jerseys.

Please notice that they wear (almost) matching clothes.
Cargo pants/shorts, jersey, and sandals. Scary, yes.
At the street rally. Nick is befuddled.

With the Zamboni. Yes, Nick, I hope Niemi will do well too.

Why are you taking pictures of me? And who
are all these people? And isn't it past my bedtime?

Nick gets to sit on the Zamboni.
This is interesting. Good view from up here.

With the famous Sharks fire truck. Fire truck interesting. Mom taking
pictures, not so interesting.

I find this activity very acceptable.

Oooh, even better view from up here. Most acceptable.

Downtown San Jose decorations.

They are both gnawing. Don't worry Nick is eating cheese, not a rawhide bone.

Do you think he knows he's being difficult about eating his dinner?

Nick and Dusty

Wow, guys, this is a really big dog!
I like dogs. What? Horses? Ok, I like them too.

Dusty sez: Really? I am a mustang. I run free
in the prairies. I do not get petted by little babies. This is somewhat
humiliating. I better get a cookie for this!

Let's go Giants!

It's home opener for the champs.

Spring wildflowers

Nick and I went to take pictures of wildflowers at Rancho Canada del Oro park in Morgan Hill. Lots of pictures are on smugmug.

Can I eat this? It better not be poisonous...

Standing attempts

Oh hai! I can see over the coffee table!

I did that by pulling myself up to almost stand! That is super awesome!

Wait! How do I get back down? That is NOT OK!!! Stop taking pictures
and help me get down, you idiot!

Laundry is done

The other pets

These are "The Ladies". They make noise. And my breakfast. They live across the street, but they are "co-op" chickens. A co-op coop. Get it?

Original, Black chick, White chick, and Nekkid.
"Did you bring us food? Because we will eat you,
if you didn't bring us food."

Twister. "Oh hai. My neck is all sideways.
I am special."

Also present, but not visible are Xerox, Kiwi, and Pretty chicken.

Getting into trouble

I have the dog's ball. Let me think now, what other havoc can I cause?

Let's see, anything good behind there?

Oooh a lens cap. Is this from a cheap lens or a fancy lens? Hmmm, tastes like fancy lens.

While you were taking pictures, I stole your cellphone. Let me see, should I lick it or smash it on the ground?

Blocked in

Who thought it was a good idea to build a wall around the baby anyway?
