So Fun

Rachel has been my best friend since high school. We have been through so much together, both good and bad. She has three kids the same ages as mine, but her oldest is a girl. I have posted pictures of all the kids before, but don't have any new ones from yesterday. I can say, that at one point in the day, they were all 6 completely covered in mud: don't ask. I'm just glad I wasn't the one here to deal with it :)

While the sitter was dealing with muddy kids, Rachel and I and the husbands were enjoying the perfect weather and atmosphere at Tiger Stadium. The game didn't end how we would have liked, but that's ok. We had a great day anyway!

How do you like my "grizzly" husband? He was hunting in Kansas all last week, so he wanted to look the part. He shaved it this morning because I couldn't stand it ;)

The stadium was packed until the last minute. Can I tell you that we RAN out of there the second the game was over! We were out of breath when we got all the way to the car, but it was well worth it. We were home 30 minutes after the game ended. I am quite sure there were people who sat in traffic for longer than an hour trying to get out of there.

The band honored our veterans with their half-time show. It was awesome!

Bryce's jr. high had a Veteran's day program Friday. The band plays during the program. They did awesome! I took pictures, but they're awful. Any tips from anyone about taking pictures in a gym?

Cade is in a Veteran's Day program Tuesday. I can't wait!

Those are great pics of you all at the game!!!

You know I can't remember the last time I took pics in a gym but seems whenever it was they didn't come out either so if you hear any tips let me know :)

How fun! Looks like you had a great time! The sitter must have had her hands full. : ) I think it is wonderful that you and your best friend have kids the same ages...I am sure they are all very close to each other!

I would have been running out of there, avoid the traffic jam. : )

I'm amazed at how quickly they can empty those stadiums. That's great that you were back in 30 minutes!

It's so nice to see old friends, isn't it?

Sounds like a fun afternoon....cute pictures!!

You must have flown to get out of there....30 minutes, that has to be a record!! Sitting in that kind of traffic is the worst!

Have a great week!
