A Not-So-Sick Day

Trent came home from school early yesterday with a fever and sore throat.  He slept the whole day away on the couch, and by the time we put him to bed last night, his lips were a shade of red Lancome couldn’t have done better.  So we agreed I would take him to the doctor this morning, so we didn’t even wake him up for school.  Well, by 10am, he was back to himself…no fever, no nothing.  So we decided to make the most of the beautiful day, and headed to Main Street Ellicott City for a photo shoot.  Here are some of Trent: 





































































We had spotted this dog across the street from where we were (and we spotted him from over a car, to give you an idea of just how tall he was…) and then we turned around and he was right behind us.  He was larger than life!  His name is Gunter (be sure to say the ‘u’ like ‘oo’) and he was about the biggest bundle of sweetness (and drool) that I’ve ever seen.  His owner was kind enough to let us take some photos with him: 
























Here they are paw to paw:




















Mr. Gunter alone…(note the drool 😉 )




















Then, on the other side of the dog spectrum, we ran into this little guy down the block:





















Then we stopped into “All Time Toys” and Trent went into sensory overload.  He has been watching old Star Treks on TVLand in the morning before school, so naturally he went right for Mr. Spock:



















He did get a talking Archer to take home and a few goodies for Graham, too…




















I wanted to get a nice shot by this bridge, but someone was a little grossed out by all the spiderwebs…



















He took complete credit for G’s gifts…























Then we decided to head to the library, and I got some good shots of Graham.  The black & white is my fave:








































And then he pulled my favorite childhood book, but once he heard that, he put it right back…












One of the seminars I went to in Chicago said it was important to take photos constantly…at least 10,000 images a week.  Not quite that many, but thanks for looking…  🙂

    Love the pic’s of Trent with the dog…
    I think the pictures add to your blog…much more interesting to see what your talking about instead of just reading about it.
