A whirlwind of travels

I made it back from Michigan only to turn around the next weekend and drive to Ohio. We spent Labor Day weekend in Ohio at the Ohio Cup, a vintage base ball festival. We had a great time and the weather was wonderful!

This weekend Mark had another base ball festival but this time at home. The Jeremiah Fruin festival was a great success although the Perfectos did not do as well as hoped. After the tournament we had dinner with a friend from TCU and his wife. We hadn't seen them since their wedding in Iowa a few years ago and were pleasantly surprised when we found out their first assignment after seminary is in Columbia, IL, about 25 minutes from us. We had a great dinner (with amazing desserts!! Oreo bonbons...yum) and then played Skip-bo until way too late. The teams of girls v. guys each won one game. Sunday was church, a very sad and pathetic St Louis Rams v. Denver Broncos game (we were cheering on the Broncos), and then dinner with some more friends in IL! Another great dinner and more great dessert (hot fudge cake...delicious!) it any wonder I've gained 5 pounds?!? Not the ideal way to start a cruise. And yes, we leave tomorrow for an Alaskan cruise.

Oooooh, a cruise. You'll eat VERY well. I felt full during the entire week Landon and I were in the Caribbean.

I Hope you guys are having a blast!
