Cincinnati, Flooding and Family Additions. (no I'm not pregnant.)

Well, we're off to Cincinnati as of tomorrow morning and I can't wait! I have to admit that things have been a bit dreary around here lately and I am really looking forward to some "fun" time with Chris' folks. It will be so nice to have Anders entertained and maybe get a date night with my hubby. Oh, and I can't forget to mention the thrill of Skyline chili! We'll also be getting to go to a Cincinnati Reds game on Saturday night after seeing a butterfly exhibit. When I get home I'll post pictures.
 
Today is filled with laundry and packing which goes pretty slowly with a child wrapped around my legs. To make this day even better I went out onto our patio this morning and there were ants all over the stroller and water leaking out from under the laundry door. It turns out that our upstairs neighbors have a hole in their automatic watering system hose which has flooded their balcony and is seeping through our porch ceiling. Of course they are on vacation. It looks like our whole porch roof may need to be torn out and redone soon. Luckily we'll be gone this weekend while they deal with the damage. =0)

On another note I am so excited for my Cousin Peter and his wife Amanda who had a little baby girl named Kana yesterday! She is so cute and has the sweetest dimple on her chin! It's always exciting to have a new baby added to the family.

Have a safe trip and fun visiting in Cincy! A Reds game! Awesome. If you have time and if you guys are true Reds fans, you HAVE to go to the Hall of Fame. It is amazing. Fun stuff for Anders too!

Can't wait to see pictures!

Gretchen, I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but when you go to a Red's game in Cincinnati, there will be a couple crazy photographers taking photos of you and trying to sell them to you. After the game, if you remember where you sat, then you can go to this website to see the photos they took: http://www.reds.com/fanfoto

I hope you all have a fun & safe trip... Godspeed....

Enjoyed the call on Mother's Day with a report on the game. I wonder if Anders is going to give up golf in favor of baseball? So glad you're having a good time! See you Saturday, for dad's haircut, eh?
