This weekend Tom and I took the boys to see Michael Jackson live in concert.
No wait...it was the Jackson 5.
No...five Michael Jacksons??? Actually, it was a performer named "Christopher" (no last name). He provided entertainment at the Louisville Bats minor league baseball game Saturday night. And yes, it was as disturbing in person as the photo makes it appear. The live person was in the center attached to the fake Michaels by poles. Whatever movements he'd make were also made by the dummies as he lip synced Jackson songs. It got old fast. But, we didn't let the in-between-innings entertainment spoil our night. (The cotton candy made up for that!)
While at the concession stand, Kevin met mascot Buddy Bat. However, I didn't have my camera with me since I'd be carrying back food. So, later I staged a shot of Kevin with Buddy. See...he's one level below us and on the visitor's dugout. Kevin loves Buddy Bat!
Tom and Blake enjoyed the game most. Our team lost, but they still made the postseason. It was hard to get a shot of Blake with him looking at the camera and not the game!Oh look...here's proof that I was at the game, too! Unfortunately, no one tells Mom when her hair is standing up all crazy. I wonder how long it had been like that?
My favorite shot of the night was taken on our walk to the ballpark from the parking garage. We happened to be walking all side by side and the sun was behind us. AFter years of thinking about getting a shot like this, I finally did. Tom thinks I'm the most creative person in the world. I don't want to disappoint him and point out that I've seen countless scrapbook pages with a similar shot on them.
