Nutshells

Seems as though it’s been a long time since I’ve posted, but it’s only been a few days.  The 4th of July weekend was a pretty great time in my life.  I have the best wife and daughter a guy could ask for, even if he was selfish and greedy.

The festivities started with Breanna embarking on her first supper cooking adventure.  I’m proud to say that her first experience of cooking was a brilliant success.  I’m not sure pig’s in a blanket have ever tasted so gourmet.  I’m telling you now, the kid has mad skills in the kitchen.  She made these using sliced hotdogs and the crescent rolls that come in a can.  I ate half of them myself.

I guess that since she was such a great success as a chef, she decided to try her hand as a clothing designer.  She sewed this lovely garment by hand from some scraps of fabric.  I placed it on my planner with my ink pen to give you an idea of the scale.  Who knows, if she doesn’t decide to become the next food network star, perhaps she can give project runway a try.  I suppose after she wins, I’ll have to meet Heidi Klum, but I suppose there are worse fates.

On Saturday, we went to one of my favorite places in Nashville to grab a bite to eat – Hot Digity Dogs.  If you’re in Nashville and are looking for a good hotdog, it’s a very cool little place, and the people who work there are some of the friendliest around.  I’m not an expert on the different hotdogs from around our great nation, but I can’t imagine they could be better than these.  It’s on Ewing Avenue if you’re looking for it.  Here’s a link to their site if you want more info.  Hot Diggity Dogs

Here’s a delicious Chicago Dog about to meet it’s demise followed soon after by that awesome Nashville dog in the background … followed by some pretty darn good fries in the brown bag too.

The reason we were in Nashville in the first place was to take some family pictures.  You’d think that since I am a photographer that my family would have tons of pictures all over the place.  Unfortunately, it’s not true.  First of all, it’s pretty difficult to set up a tripod and run into the picture and somehow look natural in the process.  Plus, when you can do something any time you’d like, it’s easy to just say that you are too busy and just plan it in the near future – which somehow ends up being the distant future.  We wear out our camera phones on each other though.  Thank God for iPhones and their awesome camera phones.   On this day though, I was determined to spend a family day and get a few family pictures.  Here’s a couple of my favorites. Find me on facebook if you want to see more.

****I don’t know why the gallery included the pics from the iPhone in this blog entry in the gallery, but they’re obviously not the professional pics I took of our family downtown, so you can just ignore them.  please ******
