Day #8 - Starting 'Em Young

Tonight, I went to the New England Auto Show with Nick & my family. Most of us have been going for years, but it was Nick & Thing 1's first trip. The show is a great opportunity to check out cars that I will never be able to afford. ;)

Thing 1 absolutely loved it, too. This is a picture of him & my brother-in-law sitting in a Ford Focus. He also tried out the Pontiac Solstice with his grammy & the Chevy HHR with his auntie. The child loves shifting! He's not even 9 months old yet & he was sitting on my mum's lap, making the shift knob move back & forth and giggling like crazy. It was great.

That's all I've got for tonight. Have a lovely evening, kids!

Oh man I'm playing at that tomorrow! That would have been awesome to run into you there.

That would have been the best. "Family, this is Hooker . . um, Matt . . . um, Hooker." Actually, though, I was sitting on a Vespa scooter at the show & I looked up at Nick & my mum and said, "Ya know, Hooker has a motorcycle. I'd rather try that on for size." Then, I started to explain to my mum who you were and she was like, "I know - Hooker from the blog!" It was surreal. ;)
