The most bad A pic of Jude ever


How awesome is this picture of Jude from the aquarium.  Seriously.  Gotta love black lights in fish tanks for photo ops apparently.

Mother's Day pt 2


Amazed by the animals swimming overhead.


Ha- what a face.


A little bit of calling down fire from heaven mixed in.


Penguins.


Getting closer....


Getting even closer...

Mother's Day Pt 1


For mother's day, we went to the Dallas World Aquarium.  It was awesome, and Jude loved it.  Well, what he could see from his stroller anyway.


He woulda gotten closer if he could.


River otters- up close and personal.  And they were about as active as Jude!

Super Jude


Super Jude is ready to blast off- snoopy chair and all

Snoop Doggy Dog



This is Jude before we left for Charlottesville, Virginia for the NCAA baseball regionals.  Too cool for baseball.

Pollock


The other day I brought home some butcher paper and markers.  And I let Jude go crazy.  It was awesome.  He did an awesome job of knowing how to use the markers and obediently keeping it on the paper.  I was struck by the 'pollockness' of it all.


Here's Jackson Pollock.  By far, my fave American artist.  I love his intensity.  His randomness.  I can only imagine how invigorating it would be to come home after a hard day of work and splatter paint everywhere.

And the cigarette hanging out of his mouth?  Awesome.  If I could have gotten Jude's face, I'm sure a paci would have been hanging out.


And at the end, Jude's picture was quite similar.  Less intensional, but full of vivacity and the embracing of life's emotions nonetheless.
