We had fun attending two baseball games last weekend – we saw the Tigers vs. Rangers at Comerica Park and then the Cubs vs. Cardinals at Wrigley Field. I really enjoyed the fireworks on Friday night at Comerica and singing Take Me Out to the Ball Game in the 7th inning stretch and watching the manual scoreboard change at Wrigley.
That’s mostly what we ate on our trip to Chicago, pizza and hot dogs; I know, it’s not original, but we enjoyed every bit of it! We enjoyed a short trip to Chicago with family this week and the highlights of the trip for me were the Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity show at the Art Institute and visiting the Skydeck at sunset (the view was amazing, of course, and what better time of day to enjoy it). The jellfish at the Shedd Aquarium made for some interesting photos…
We had the pleasure of traveling back home to Texas in June to visit family and for Abby’s Bat Mitvah. It was really wonderful to visit with family and enjoy all the festivities. And Tina did an amazing job with the desserts and display for the reception! Thank you to Abby, Debbie, and Steve for letting us be a part of Abby’s Bat Mitvah; we love you all and are thrilled to see Abby growing into the beautiful, young woman that she has become.
We were able to get back home to Texas to visit family last week, which was wonderful! We stopped at some delicious restaurants and fun attractions along our way (Chuy’s, Rudy’s BBQ, Dr. Pepper Museum, etc.) and we had some fun with taking these photos…
We had a weekend getaway in Lake Ann, MI last weekend & the scenery was breathtaking! Much of the fall color is on its way out there, but the woods were beautifully golden. The misty morning on Saturday, crunch of leaves under our feet, bright green moss and evergreen needles, & glimpses of beautiful blue lake water couldn’t have been more perfect.

Sunrise from the air
We flew to El Paso, TX last week; above is a shot from the airplane on the way home early in the morning – what a beautiful sunrise it was! While we were there, we had the pleasure of visiting Carlsbad Caverns as well, which is also quite the sight to see.
