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.
Comfort and Adam.
Corrine's table and picked up a few small prints for Quinn's room (I really like dragons!).
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.
Helder Park instead of JAFAX. At 9:30 in the morning the park was pretty empty.
Salad Works so I met up with her there. Not bad.
adafruit gemma I've had for a few years. It's been awhile since I've played with an arduino but now that I'm getting more and more free time back in the evening, it's time to start on some projects.
Douglas Walker Park this morning. It's not too far from us and we thought we'd try something different.
When your kid gets up at the crack of dawn, you arrive at places before everyone else, and this park was no exception .There were almost no people there and they didn't start to arrive until we were leaving.
Frog Hollow Park was nearby so we took Quinn this morning. It's a nice set up for younger kinds, complete with a fence that circles the park (it's also nearby a road). There are several structures for younger and older children. Quinn had a blast wandering everywhere. He really enjoyed watching some of the older kids and even tried to follow them occasionally.
Still, it was nice to wander around and see how things had changed over the past year. One of the tunnels under the road and along the river is painted now, which is interesting. Not sure if it was for Artprize last year or just for the sake of painting it. Every way, it's a fun change to see.
A Song of Fire and Ice series (and the Game of Thrones TV show)
Micro Center. I wanted a Raspberry Pi Zero and for $5 it's hard to come by so I was pretty excited they had it in stock.
I have a few project ideas but nothing firm yet. For now it's just fun to play with a computer the size of a stick of gum.
My week of vacation is coming to a close! We decided to spend the second to last in metro Detroit and visit Grandma Karath! Quinn had fun running around grabbing everything. She also has this nice white cat sculpture that he really enjoys playing with.
It's also the day before Jeff's 32nd birthday! So we spent the afternoon at my parents house celebrating.
Adam, Comfort and Dan came over to play a boardgame (Tomb).
Corinne in Grand Haven and took Quinn to the beach. It was his visit trip to the beach and once he got going he enjoyed splashing in the water and playing with the sand.
