Sunday AM coffee

Middle of June already.
We've sure been putting the miles on the van since school got out.

Last Saturday we went to Green Bay for a day at Lambeau Field.
It's a program offered to kids 14 and under to have the opportunity to go to the stadium get a tour, see the hall of fame and practice with a few Packer players.
We took one of Caden's buddies with us and met up with another of his classmates there.
Three and a half hour drive one way, four hours touring/walking/standing around then three and a half hours home made for a long day. 

The boys in the stadium.

In the practice area.

This picture was taken from alllll the way across the practice field - a solid 100 yards.
The zoom on my new camera works pretty well lol
He sure looks happy doesn't he.
A great day had by all.

The little flower gardens are all in bloom with their lovely colors. 
My flower pots on the porch are struggling because that rotten Dozer eats/destroys/lays in the pots! My current plan is to put mouse traps in the pots that will snap the crap out of him when he tries to thrash the flowers. I'll let you know how that goes.

At least two ball games a week. 
The most notable from last week was playing another team that has two boys on it from the Wheeler team.
Unfortunately Colfax lost 7 to 4. Sure was a good game.

This week we took Chyann on a few college tours.
She has the college she want to go to picked out and it's only 2.5 hours from here.
So she'll be close, but not too close.
We had fun taking campus tours and exploring the cities.

We stayed the night in St Cloud and while she hung out with her friends the Hubby and I hit the local thrift sales. I found some great deals on pictures and picture frames, but we hit the mother load with cool baseball stuff!
 From big barrel bats to batting nets and a bucket of balls. 
Caden was thrilled with our treasures!

Last week both the big kids started their jobs.
They had a few tired days at first since they weren't used to getting up at the ass crack of dawn.

Chyann even got herself up and out the door for work by 615a today.
I heard the door slam because yes I was sleeping in.

We've had a lot of rain this last week which once again makes keeping up with the mowing nearly impossible since it seems we are never home when it's not raining.
Mowing is my plan for the day.

Have a good one :)

Amazing zoom on your camera!

My parents are coming for a short visit tomorrow evening. Long enough to come in, say hi, and take us out for dinner.

Which means I have to clean the damn house.

Nice to hear from you!!!
(carefully not making a juvenile joke about a bucket of balls)

Your new camera rocks!
What a cool trip for the kids!

All though it's kinda mean, looking forward to a Dozer/Mouse trap story! LOL!!

Hehe so did you really get to sleep in with the slamming door? That's a good distance away from home for a college... being you stayed in Minnesota I assume it's across the state line?
