Hope that everyone had a safe and happy New Year. Just thought that I should make a few general comments about 2009 while it is still fresh in my head.

The Superbowl came to Detroit and we took James downtown during Super Bowl week to participate in some of the festivities. James got to see radio row and rode on the people mover to Greek town and then off to Ford Field and a stop at Comerica park (which would be the first time James saw the two new Detroit stadiums). We bought James an official Super Bowl XL outfit, then drove by the Spirit of Detroit to see how the statue was dressed for the event.
The Steelers won the Superbowl later in the week which we watched together on TV. One of the other sites I do is called “The Curse of Bobby Layne” and it was interesting that the one time a Superbowl was played in Detroit it would be won by the team Bobby was traded to nearly 50 years ago.

The Detroit Zoo was a popular date for Mary and myself so we figured James would have to like it. He did, but had a little trouble seeing some of the animals because he was so small, so we lifted him up when we could. What James liked best was the Amphibian exhibit, not because of the animals but because of the fountains outside where amphibian frogs would squirt water into the air on and off. James laughed each time this happened and enjoyed it alot. A close second would have to be his playtime at the park, since he got out of his stroller and got a chance to play and burn up a little energy.
All in all a fantastic day at the zoo, and it was nice to take James somewhere that I used to visit and enjoy as a kid.

Mary used to live in Ferndale and you could see almost see the water tower from her house, yet we did not start going to the zoo for at least a year after we met. The dinosaur display was the big attraction this year, sort of a 21st century Jurassic park so we took a lot of pictures of that exhibit and Mary had fun posing with the dinosaurs as well.

After 42 years the Detroit Red Wings broke the curse and won a Stanley Cup, here we are celebrating downtown the day of the parade. It was an extremely hot summer day and we waited downtown for hours, so we were quite parched when the parade finally ended at Hart Plaza. We did not stay for the speeches, only the parade.
Great time was had by all and congrats to the Detroit Red Wings. Now if we can just do something about those Lions…
