The Model

This blog is supposed to be about the "interesting" things going on for Tressie Davis Photography, or personal stories in my life to give you all the "inside scoop" so to speak. Unfortunately, other than the photo contests that I am obsessed with, there isn't a whole lot that I can blog about (without getting in trouble LOL). At the risk of becoming repetitive, I would like to share another recent Photo of the Day win - My image "The Model" was the People Photo of the Day on Digital Image Cafe yesterday (8/27/09) Yay! Some of you may recognize Judi M's son - thanks again for hanging out with us this summer Judi, and be sure to let S know that he's famous! :-) Here is the winning image, "The Model":

The Henry Ford

This past Wednesday, my three youngest and I went exploring...first stop was the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn. My kiddos just LOVED the interactive exhibits, and running ahead to see what was next. Riley used a computer that they had set up to "build a hotrod". All of the kids had to try the crank on the front of the car - can you believe that's how people used to have to start them? Robby couldn't do it, so I had to help him. :-) They cracked up when they pulled aside a big door and the "shipping guy" behind it started talking to them. Toward the end of the tour, they picked up their "$5" for a days work - a bill with the story of how Henry Ford instituted the $5 a day pay as opposed to the industry standard $2 in 1914. When we finished there, we moved over to the Henry Ford Museum. Robby could hardly contain himself he was so excited - he kept running ahead screaming "Drive!", "Wheel!" and "Bike!" while he pointed to things all around him. Too funny. The girls liked the train engine that they could climb into, to see how it worked and what it looked like inside. And I think the highlight for all three of them was the Miley Cyrus smart car that they could get inside. They took turns "driving" it - when Riley was the passenger, she stuck her head out of the roof. :-)

We finished the day with a trip to the IMAX to see Under the Sea 3D. This was Robby's first time in a theater of any kind, and he was a little nervous to go into the dark. I had to pick him up and carry him in because he stood in the doorway and said "no". Once inside and 15 minutes into the movie I finally convinced him to put his 3D glasses on - he was a hoot, screaming when things moved toward him, and reaching his hands out to touch them. He fell asleep about half way through the movie though - all of us were tired by then...definitely time to go home after the movie, but what a great trip!!
