Look at Me Go!


For those of you that haven't heard, the city of Grand Rapids has been flooded with sculptures, paintings, photographs, and every other art medium you can think of with open art competition offering the largest cast prize ever of $250,000. It is a unique event, which lasts through Oct. 10th, where ANYONE can register to vote and determine the winner. My company, Coalesse, has been a major sponsor of the event. Here, you see Henry at Madcap coffee sitting on one of our newest pieces from our outdoor collection, Ivy. I can't believe how amazing this event has been for our little city.....artists from all over the world are here, and the local businesses have been flourishing much for the economic downturn! What a brilliant idea!
Almost anything goes as far as venues.....bars, sides of buildings, really can't turn your head without seeing art somewhere!
Someone put a gigantic table and chairs over the Blue Bridge!

Slacker Blogger

Sorry I've been such a slacker with the blog lately! Henry was able to watch State score their first touchdown of the season....I don't know what has happened since with the team though! Get it together Spartans, or Henry is going to learn some new colorful words from Dad this season!
Henry has discovered the spice cabinet....time to get a child proof lock on this one too! But, he saved the day by finding my cayenne pepper I needed to make the Tikka Masala...thanks buddy!

A friend at work lives on a farm with horses, alpacas, and other smelly barn is Henry face to face with a horse!
Henry and Dad feeding a carrot from the garden to the horse.
And finally, his first ride! He wasn't that impressed....which Mike and I were happy, since horse riding as a hobby isn't cheap~!

Learning how to walk

Henry has been practicing his walking now for weeks...walking along tables, couches, behind his push toys. Lately, he has been letting go and trying it on his own. It is has been fun to watch the little drunken sailor hobbling around our living room. Mike was able to catch his world record of 9 steps on video! Go Henry! We don't know if this qualifies his as "walking" yet, but he is close!
