Blogger journal: Chronicling the experience

I have not done a 'blogger journal' since early in New York Giants training camp. Well, Monday afternoon I took my 13-year-old son to camp and let him shoot pictures with my digital camera.

He was shooting from the bleachers with a small digital camera, but he got some good shots. And, more importantly, he enjoyed himself. Despite the fact that he is a Patriots' fan (yeah, I know, but I love him anyway).

So, indulge me this morning while I share with you some of the photos from the more than 200 that he shot.

Just to prove I actually have been at camp, that is me to the right overseeing the pre-practice stretching routine.

My son has great admiration for the members of our Armed Forces, as do the Giants.
