JAFAX is back this year and this time it's at DeVos Place. We arrived very early, around 9:30. There were long lines on Friday and we knew that early in the morning meant a short line and plenty of time for Quinn to run around.

And boy did he have an amazing time running everywhere, yelling "hi" at everyone then scampering off all shy when they replied.
 At 11am the vendor hall opened, so we entered to see our friends Comfort and Adam.
We also stopped by Corrine's table and picked up a few small prints for Quinn's room (I really like dragons!).
We didn't end up staying too much past 11:30, since Quinn really need to take a break and a nap. But I did get a badge (for awhile they were passing out wrist bands) and Quinn had a fantastic time. Chris and I had a good time too, although a little limited in what we could do since a 16 month old won't sit still for an hour long panel.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the con grows over the next few years. Hopefully it does gangbusters like the Grand Rapids Comic Con has done.

We headed out this morning to Helder Park instead of JAFAX. At 9:30 in the morning the park was pretty empty.
Quinn had a lot of fun and he was able to push his stroller around. He took that very seriously and didn't want anyone interfering.
Its a decent size park and we walked the trail around the whole area. As he gets older we'll definitely have to come back.

On my lunch I walked over to DeVos to check out JAFAX. Like all anime cons seem to be, it was just a massive registration line. Sigh.

He loves to flip the chair over and climb it. This kid won't climb a play structure but stairs and furniture he won't stop trying to climb.

Since my time is limited in the evening until after Q goes to bed, I've been slowly chipping away at the Raspberry Pi Zero setup. This evening all I really did was set it with a static IP. Eventually I'll get it into a new case and have it working as a nature cam, but for now it's just hanging out.

He's pushing everything around in the house.

With new cables in hand I was able to hook up the camera module to the Raspberry Pi Zero. Now to configure everything!

 My parents and brother came out for the day to celebrate Father's Day.
It was warm out, but we spent most of the day out on the deck. Chris put up two barricades so Quinn couldn't go down the stairs and we were able to sit down and enjoy the weather.
Everyone had a really good time and it was a beautiful day to be outdoors.
