Last Post

Ok, so I have no idea why my last post isn't showing up at least when I open up my blog, so if you want to see my last post, click on the post down along the righthand side that says "Old Friends Connecting with New Friends".

Another Busy Weekend!

So it's amazing how the summer has barely started but yet every weekend is packed until late August. This weekend was no exception. Friday night Denise and I had dinner at Kobe and then met up with friends at Maggie Mileys. Saturday was my ten year high school reunion. It was so good to see everyone and catch up. With a class of 17 kids you have a tendency to see most of them around town still but to actually spend time with everyone and see what they've been up to was a lot of fun. Today, we headed to the pool. It was the first time this summer I've been to the pool and I was really glad to get some sun. The weather was awesome and we had a great time watching Chase and Ty swim in the pool.
Ty Man chillin in the grass!
I look pregnant in this picture. I'd like to blame it on the wind, but I think it's the extra ten pounds I need to lose!

Ash and Evangeline. This is Eve saying "Chuck E Cheese" and giving the eyes!

Ash, Ash, and Abby
Andy and Brian. Brian was sporting the athlete/cowboy look with his underarmor shirt and cowboy hat.
Classmates, old friends, new friends, re-connected friends.
So out of the 17 we graduated with, about ten of us were there, but I didn't remember to get a picture when there were more of us.
After the reunion ended we decided we still wanted to hang out, and Denise caught up with us as well.
Andy and I. He was our honorary classmate. He didn't graduate with us but was always a part of our class.
Ash and Andy
Ash and the boys. Some things from high school never change. Ash was always just one of the guys! I was so jealous of that! :-)
Denise and Mike. We keep running into him. He keeps us company and shields us from weird boys.
We probably have a thousand of these pictures, but it's like a prerequisite for us when we hang out together.
I was so sticky from being outside all day. I still look shiny in this picture!
These two go way back. Andy was there the first time Ash took a jump off a ramp with her bike, ran into the mailbox and split her chin! They could practically be brother and sister!
At Fairview for my first day at the pool this summer.

I cropped out our legs. I still have some working out to do before I want those shown in pictures!
I have some catching up to do in the tanning department. I'm a little white compared to Ash and EVERYONE else!
Ty loved the water! He was moving his little arms and legs like he was swimming on his own. He was too cute!

A Little Wii Action!

So I decided to be irresponsible and do what the government wanted me to do and stimulate the economy! I bought a Nintendo Wii. We've been having a lot of fun playing and trying to get better at the games. What's funny is you wake up the next day with a sore arm from how hard you're swinging your imaginary tennis racket. Tami came over last night and played with us.

Whirlwind Weekend!

This weekend was such a whirlwind with a lot going on. Thursday was Denise's birthday and we went to Peoria to celebrate. Friday we went out with just the girls to celebrate Denise's bday again. Friday night my dad flew into town for the weekend and Saturday we went out to Indiana to go to one of his old teacher's retirement parties. Sunday was Julie Neukomm's wedding, and then I stopped over to see Marissa and the baby.
Denise and her friend Jessica, at Granite City in Peoria for dinner.
Josh and I at the Peoria Chiefs game. I can't seem to figure out why my arm looks flourescent yellow in this picture.

Josh was trying out the zoom on my camera phone. It works!

Denise and I during the game. The usher didn't want to let us sit in these seats for fear that we might be in a season ticket holders spot. As you can see from the empty seats behind us, there wasn't much to worry about!
Denise's friend Lindsey and Denise

Greg and Denise. The first picture I took of them they looked stoned which was funnier but they would both kill me if I posted it, so for fear of keeping my life, it will not be posted online!

Lindsey and Pete Vonachen. She had to give him a kiss to get this baseball. He wouldn't accept a kiss on the cheek! He told her that he can't help that he's a sex symbol!

Mike and Joe(A band out of Indy) played after the game.

Lindsey grabbed this random guy to take a picture because she thought he looked like Prince William. Apparently his real name is Garrett Blunier and he's from Roanoke. Ahh.......the advantages of Facebook! :-)

It wasn't windy but based on my hair in my eyes you'd think there was a huge breeze as the camera was going off.

An empty ballpark and us.

Hanging out at Kellehers after the game.

Denise and her fellow teachers

Denise and her sister Lindsey at Biaggis for round two of her birthday.

Ash and I at dinner. Can you see that I have a smidge of color? :-)

Denise got a wine glass that had a D painted on it. It matched her shirt!

Heidi and Will at Julie's wedding. He's such a little stud! He even has his collar popped! :-)

Aedan was a smidge tired. I thought he looked so cute with his pacey in.
Marissa and Nichole, and Nichole's baby Kate.
Nichole and I. She came out for Julie's wedding so we got to catch up while waiting in line at the reception.
