Reformatory Ride

Nice weather + lots of motorcycles = a trip to the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield. Some parts were scary, other parts were cool and now I'm pretty much positive that I never want to end up in prison... as if I wasn't sure before our trip!

There were lots of motorcycles and even more people.

The lower three levels of the west cell block.

We climbed these stairs to the guard tower.

Me and my mama on the roof.

It was fun. Maybe I will have to go again some time.

Just a few from the tournaments. Baseball is done until next May. Time to get ready for football.

We live in the city

Yes... that would be a pancake and call me crazy but I don't think pancakes belong on our air conditioning unit. How did that get there?

We live in the city.

Flowers, Frogs, Family

I wandered around in my mama's back yard with my camera for a little while last night. It was pretty fun. Way more interesting than our back yard!

These flowers were my favorite. I love how they change color.

I tried to get as close as I could to this frog. He wasn't too fond of my and my loud mouth talking so he took off and hid under the water.

And because it's my blog... One of me with the Handy Man...

And one of beasty Bevo looking sweet in "his" chair.

Last but not least

Yesterday we went to our last graduation party. It was really fun to see everything come together so well. The cake was our contribution and it was super yummy!

Handy Manny and the girls.

Gabe was so dang cute I wanted to take a million picture of him.

All of the boys liked taking Bevo for a walk and Bevo liked going for a walk.

This boy likes pickles.

I even managed to get a picture of me to post.

Congrats Amber!

Pitchers Duel

Two nights, two games, two pitchers to photograph!

Al's still a beast.

Julie trying to beat out a bunt.

They look cute now but these people were teasing me mercilessly. The worst part was Handy Manny. He was encouraging it!

Jacob got the call for his team too. I'm not sure how many games he has pitched but he looked pretty much at ease on the mound.

The very next inning the sent him behind the plate. Talk about being a utility player!

Congrats Hope!

Graduation parties are in full swing! Last Saturday we went to 2 different ones. I didn't take my camera in to the first one (I know what a surprise!) so I only have pictures from Hope's.

The dessert table looked fantastic! Of course I sampled all of the yummy treats. The little hats were too cute and super tasty. Anything made of Hershey bars and peanut butter cups sounds heavenly to me.

Hope was super excited about the cousins gift. I think at first she didn't realize what it was but once she saw Nikon on the box she figured it out.

Ava decided it was most appropriate to lounge at the table. She stuck her feet right up on the edge like it was a footstool or something.

Kendra stopped for a quick one with Hope.

The inflatables were a bit hit, even with the adults. This thing was way more dangerous than it looks. Especially when you were attached to your partner with a bungee cord. It ended up being quite a workout.

A couple more of some cute kids!

We had a blast. Two parties down, one to go!
