Pool bums

This summer Alex and I spent A LOT of time at our local YMCA pool. It was a pretty hot summer, and I prefer to be able to get in the water to cool off. The lakes aren't always ideal for a dip in the water, unless you are on a boat. There are weird things that grow and can get people sick. So we opted to sit poolside this summer.

Double Birthday Rainbow . . . What does it mean?

On my birthday this year, I joined the rest of society and got my first iPhone. 

My first picture . . . a double rainbow as we walked out of the store. I have never seen a rainbow like this let alone a double rainbow. (You can faintly see the second rainbow to right of the photo.)

Swing Batter, Swing!

This past Spring and Summer Alex and I checked out a few of the other Minnesota Sports Teams. The first was attending the Minnesota Swarm Lacrosse game. We had the fortune of being able to sit in box seats at the Xcel Center with the Notre Dame Alumni Club. The owner of the Swarm is a Notre Dame graduate and arranged for the seats. The seats were great and the game was very exciting. It reminded me of cheering on my brother when he played Lacrosse.

We were also lucky to get tickets to the Cleveland Indians/Minnesota Twins game. They were great seats as well. I was decked out in my Indian gear and got quite a few glares. The Indians won the game which of course is always exciting.

We also went to a St. Paul Saints game. It is a great opportunity to people watch because everyone comes to these games. I mean everyone. There is also great entertainment at the change of innings.

Dusting off the cobwebs

Wow! I can't believe that my last post was in April. It has been so long that I couldn't even remember what my login information was to even post this on my blog. Yikes!

Hopefully, over the next couple of weeks I can catch up on our summer. They may be abbreviated posts because there is just way too much to share.

Looking forward to sharing with everyone!
