Owen's Phirst Phillies Game....

...was the last Phillies game of 2007. They got swept by the Rockies in the NLDS. We were sad to see the Phillies season end, but it was exciting to see the Rockies fans celebrate. That place went nuts!

We ordered our tickets before we even knew the Rockies would be in the playoffs. During their one game playoff with the Padres, I ordered the best available seats at that time. When we went to the game, we found the upper deck, and started walking back to our seats... last row! Here is the view from those seats:


The upperdeck was too windy and didn't give a very good view of the game. There are some seats just beyond centerfield called the Rockpile - we migrated to some "standing seats" near there that gave us a better view of the action. Here's a photo from behind the Rockpile:

How we felt after the game:


...and finally, Coors Field hires a few photographers to wander through the stands and take pictures of fans. Here's our picture at the Rockies website:

Owen Video



My snazzy new camera (given to me by the Wife for successfully defending my PhD thesis) does video. Here's our first good video of Owenito laughing while I mess with his hands. Enjoy!

14 lbs and 4 months!



Owen weighed 14 lbs, 1 oz on his 4 month birthday, which means he more than doubled his birthweight of 6 lbs, 6 oz. We believe that puts him in the "growing like a weed" category...

Owen Jackson



Owen Jackson was born at 8:50 pm on Friday May 18. He was 6 lbs, 6 oz and 19 inches long. His first week was a little rough, but he's doing fine. Monkus, Watson and Cleo are very happy he's home. I will be posting lots of photos of him at the flickr website - see link on the right.

Watson After a Long Week



Watson hasn't been getting his usual amount of attention the past two weeks....

Catch of the Day: Skink

Last summer, Monkus cornered a snake in our backyard. Today I came home from walking Watson to find Monkus with a dead skink dangling from his mouth. This behaviour is not out of bounds for a run-of-the-mill domestic cat, but Monkus is blind! Here's a picture of the hunter with his kill:
