Photo Contest and a Workshop

I’m very excited!  I am doing two things to work towards my goal of getting more experience in this photography thing.  Today I took Rowan to the Botanic Gardens, it turned out to be a gorgeous day.  They are having a spring photo contest so I took a bunch of photos, in addition to some for my sister who is requesting some wall art.  I can’t decide.  Here are a few (I have a thing for black and white):

Regarding the photo workshop, my sister sent me a Groupon for a 3 hour workshop at the Chicago Photography Academy.  I’m very excited, hopefully, it won’t be too basic and I will learn something!

Neighborhood Find

We’ve been looking for the perfect baseball cap for Rowan.  The Detroit hat Brandon ordered through Amazon was too small despite being one size fits all (he has a large noggin).  I bought two generic caps from Wal-Mart for $6.00 total.  I was super excited to find this one at Marshalls for $3.99.  Perfect because his first baseball game will be Cubs vs. Detroit.  We’re still planning on getting him a Detroit shirt to wear as well.  His Grandpa is a White Sox fan, he will not be pleased.
