this morning i made my son a fried egg - then i took the dog out. i realized that the egg i had just fried looked just like the daisies in my yard.....

i should also mention i haven't been sleeping well at night!

the first week of summer vacation wasn't so great. In exactly one week 6 out of the 8 of us caught the nasty stomach flu bug! Hopefully - that is it for "sickness" in this house for awhile.

I now look forward to the start of summer vacation...........

Take me out to the ballgame

saturday night we decided to go down to the ball park to catch a detroit tiger's game.

it was a beautiful night.
comerica park was packed.
we got standing room only tickets. we thought we could find a seat somewhere - it wasn't until the 9th inning when we grabbed some seats from people leaving.

i only drink beer at the ballpark - somehow it tastes better.

i love baseball games in the evening.

i don't think there was an empty seat in the entire stadium.

i think someone told cabrera to look our way

and then there was this after the game.........

and then there was this after the wedding......

and all this for just 17 bucks!

About Me

I have been very happily married to my "kindergarten sweetheart" for 20 years............well we actually didn't start dating until we were in our 20's...... Together we have 6 wonderful children. They are 17, 16, 15, 14, 10 and 8. Although, we have moved around often, I am hopeful that we are now settled back home in Michigan.
