    Worth A Thousand Words

    After Jessica and I were both cooped up in the house with low-grade temperatures, it seemed like some sunshine and some fresh air would be just what the doctor ordered. I had to run a couple of errands this morning, so we did them in Baby Blue, including a stop at a park, which turned into an impromptu photo session. Even though Jessica is basically non-verbal, I don't think there is a person out there who can't see by this picture how she feels about "her" Baby Blue.

    Yep. I'd say that picture pretty much captures it. Pretty cool!

    Wow
