Have a great fourth of July… Kat, Jakob and I are off to Pennsylvania. Jakob will get some Grandmom and Grandpop time, and Kat and I are going to brave the crowds and try to see some of Live 8.

I feel a little foolish that I’m headed to Philly right after NECC.. and having read everyone’s reports from there, I am really wishing that I had decided to go down there, but oh well. There’s always next year.

Here’s the latest Jakob photo. This was a "hold the camera in front of you and snap" shot… and as soon as Jakob saw the camera, he gave his big smile. He is the world’s biggest ham. ":-)"
