Take me out to the ballgame...

Emmah is HUGE Pudge Rodriguez fan and has been since he played for the Tigers, we have had to follow him from team to team which has been a little depressing for Emmah, but she has managed well. Well we decided one night that we should surprise the kids and take them to a Tigers game and why not make it twice as nice and make it a game against Pudge's current team! So we talked to some family and got plans all set.

Yesterday was the big day and we surprised them twice and were even surprised ourselves! Once we got into the city of Detroit Emmah figured it out that we were going to a game, but then when we parked they were surprised to see their Aunt Mary, Uncle Scott and cousin Shelby! (She was our surprise...we were expecting her brother!)

As we started walking to the field we explained to Emmah and Jake that they were playing Pudges' team, that's when the cheering and jumping began! All in all it was a beautiful day and we enjoyed a great Tigers win! They loved it and have already said they want to go back again soon!

This past weekend there was a lot of time set aside to just PLAY! Both time for mommy to go and "play" with her girlfriend up north on a crazy canoeing trip and the kids to try their hands at fishing and spending time at the park!

It is great to have weekends like this, I look forward to them. They are simple times and nothing fancy is usually required. It makes good memories for the kids that they will remember for a lifetime and well that is what life is all about....making memories!

I had fun on my trip and it is already scheduled for next year...boy there are some stories, but alas what happens in Baldwin stays in Baldwin! I was so excited to hear that Tob took the kids to the fishing derby and remembered to bring the camera! I hope that everyone took some time to play this weekend!

Movin on Up

Well we have now passed another sweet little Emmah is now a 2nd grader. I'm not sure who told her she could continue to grow, but I guess this is something I will just have to adjust to!

She had her Celebration on Learning at school on Tuesday night and it was GREAT! She sang some songs, recited some poems, and got to show off her hardwork on her animal report and habitat. (Her animal was a Komodo Dragon)

It was fun to see her performing and showing off! I love all the excitement she has for these types of events, I guess we may have a little performer on our hands!

I have decided to give this a try and since I have a new camera this should be easy right???? WRONG!!! This weeks I had to chose 1 photo, really 1, only 1! Well this one is my favorite, and it was really hard to pick, let me tell you.

This is a picture of my daughter and her great grandma, who she is named after! It will for sure be a keepsake photo!!
