Baseball and Freedom

What a great weekend it has been here. We spent a very nice Memorial day today with our family. Tradition takes us to the cemetery for the Veteran's service and gun salute. We then head to Great-grandma's house for cinammon rolls - they are delicious!! We finish the day at Grandma's with a wonderful cookout (with way too much food!). It is a great day to remember the very special people who fought for our freedom and spend a day with our family.

Since it was a holiday weekend we decided a trip to Miller Park to cheer on our Brewer's was in order. I always knew that having kids was expensive, diapers for 4 was proof of that. But no one ever tells you about all the small things....finding a hotel room that allows 6 people, let alone has beds for 6 is nearly impossible. I finally did find a hotel room in Milwaukee that would work, they even had a shuttle for the game. So I called early Saturday morning to sign us up - too bad they only had room left for 5! Lucky for now our van still fits the 6 of us - although with the way the kids are growing, I'm not sure that will be true for long. Once we got to the game, we had a wonderful time. Sam got a batting practice home-run ball. Bernie Brewer was back (that made Luke's whole summer). The girls found the ice cream stand with the helmets of ice cream. And that was all before the game even started. An in the park home run hit by the Brewer's in the bottom of the first was so much fun to see. Then it was a tie ball game in the bottom of the 9th inning....Ryan Braun fouled off a ball that was headed for our section and wouldn't you know it, Kraig caught it! What are the chances? We even made it on tv! The Brewers finished off the game with a suicide squeeze bunt and scored. Best game we've been too by far!! It was a great kick-off to summer.

As for scrapping life has been busy and crazy, but I have managed to squeeze just a bit in. This is a page I had done for Sketchy Thursdays....too bad I went to post it a day late for the challenge. Oh well, at least I like how it turned out. The challenge was a sketch and a picture of some old china floral pattern coffee cups - I had just happened to get my kit that day and this paper was all I could think of - worked well:)
