Birthdays and baseball

marci and tom 2

Happy Birthday, Tom and Marci!

Tom and I have birthdays that are just one day apart, so tonight we celebrated both of ours with a night out in Ann Arbor.  We enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Real Seafood restaurant – Tom had a seafood “blue plate special”, and I (not a seafood fan!) had a steak.  You can never be sure if steaks are going to be good at a seafood restaurant, but this one was wonderful – very tender.  We shared a chocolate mousse, and then walked around downtown, enjoying the warm evening.

We were definitely not alone tonight, with all the restaurants packed, and people walking everywhere.  On the way back to the car, we got frozen coffees at Bigbee’s, and picked up a treat for the boys at the new Cherry Republic store that just opened in Ann Arbor this week.  Cherry Republic is one of our favorite Michigan companies, and we love to visit their headquarters in Glen Arbor.  We’re really excited to have a shop close to home, now!

Bryce’s baseball season got started last week, and his team is off to a really great start!

Last Saturday was their 1st game, and it was a lovely day for baseball.  I “borrowed” my brother’s camera a couple of weeks ago, so I’m getting some really good pictures for a change!

it's a hit

Bryce clearly has his eye on the ball!

He got three great hits in that game, and made it on base everytime!  All of the boys were having a great day, and were all getting hits, so there was lots of action!

And there he is – sliding into second base!

They’re 2-0 right now, and looking really good.  I think it’s going to be a fun season!
