The Waterfront

So a full box of Kleenex, several doses of Tylenol and a finally broken fever! I was feeling somewhat better and my husband had cabin fever, we decided to venture outside. It is the first sunny weekend day here (that is somewhat warm too) in a while. First in the year in fact. So we decided to enjoy it and so we headed down to the waterfront.

We weren't there very long before bagpipes started to play; and while some find this to be beautiful music... I do not. Sorry I just don't get the unique sound and it translate in my mind as noise. That being said, we want to expose Ace to many cultures and newities and so we walked closer, although certainly not necessary we could hear the pipes loud and clear from where we were. However, smokers decided to light up right next to us with OUR BABY! Seriously? People like that piss me off. I wanted to walk up to them and sneeze all over them, because while what I have won't kill them it certainly won't make them feel good - just as their smoke isn't healthy for us to ingest and I find it equally as rude as blatantly sneezing on someone!

Anyway - I took a video (on my phone so please excuse the picture quality) and if you are NOT a fan of bagpipes then I'd leave your speakers on mute, as all the audio is the bagpipes. Ace's general thought was confusion... but in general he had a bit of a scowl to him once he woke up. He's just so expressive and sometimes it's really funny the faces he makes. Part of it was that bright light in the sky... it's called the sun Ace. Yes, I know you haven't seen that much before. It went away very shortly after you were born, son. I promise though it does come out semi-regularly in the months to come... so perhaps some baby shades will be in order.
