I'm using my year in photos post to hype up a few things I like about my city. As an added benefit for friends and family (28% of which would be interested in seeing pictures of my family), you get some pictures of my awesome family. Besides, the only way to make family photos interesting to strangers is to frame them up against some of my favorite aspects of our great city.
Downtown Carriage RideFor Margot's birthday, we took a horse drawn carriage ride around the downtown area. The ride was a first for us. For as much time as I've spent near the circle, that was a nice angle to experience the area.
Victory FieldWhat a great minor league park we've got. The outfield experience is ideal for our group of friends and family.
This is a two for one photo. I get to promote this east side restaurant as well as give you a glimpse into my awesome dad time.
Great selection and great staff. Note my use of My Little Pony comics as a gateway drug.
Holliday ParkWe own a bunch of city parks on the north side. And Holliday park could have topped the list this year. We love it for its nature center, playground, its "ruins", and the river front.
My StreetWe've lived in the south east corner of Meridian-Kessler for over ten years now.
St. Joan of Arc's French Market
Year after year, this is our favorite festival on the summer circuit.
100 Acre Wood (and all the outdoor IMA grounds)
What a great way to spend a random weekend afternoon.
