Take Me Out to the Ballgame..

Friday night we headed home to drop off Barkley B and spend sometime with our families. Jared decided that he needed to hit the driving range with Colin and Ross. After that we enjoyed dinner at the Greaser's and then headed out to the Marriott's. It was a great evening just chatting with our parents and family.

Saturday we headed to KC to watch the Royals play the Boston Red Socks.. Going to the ball park would not be complete without some new Royals shirts and some wonderful tailgating food! We decided that it would be best for us to just spend the night and the hotel was within walking distance of the stadium.. We meet up with some friends and enjoyed an afternoon full great food and were so excited to head into the stadium.  The Royals did not win but it was a great time and we can not wait to head back to the ball park for another game.. Sunday we decided to do some shopping and then head home to our Barkley...We sure did miss that little fur ball!

Two Great Weekends in a Row...

On March 26th we had our friend Catherine over for dinner! Since it was Friday I made Alfredo, Fresh Garden Salad and Strawberry shortcake. We received so many great wedding gifts for entertaining so whenever we have guests I find a way to use all of them! Here is a picture of the salad and strawberries..Catherine it was great to see you and Congrats on the Internship!!

 On Saturday we ventured out to Aggieville to cheer on the cats with Jessica and Neil. It was a great game but the Cats just couldn't pull it off! Still Very Proud of them! EMAW!!

Then Sunday we headed to Topeka to do some shopping and watch Sydnie's volleyball team play. They did great and I was amazed by how good they are since they are still young! Way to Go Sydnie!! After watching volleyball we hit the mall and Wal Mart.. Shopping would not be complete without getting Barkley B a gift. He got a new toy that makes so much noise that it had to be left at the grandparents  and he got a summer outift! Please excuse his long hair but the groomer has been crazy busy and so have we!
On Friday, April 2nd we head back to Troy for some family time! We were able to watch Colin play baseball on Saturday at Highland Community College! We are so proud of him! Then Sunday we Easter and we had the chance to see all of your family and it was wonderful! Here is a picture of all the candy we came home with.. Its crazy how candy we have in this house now! I Made it 40 days without chocolate and Jared made it about 25 without soda.. At least he tried..:)
Saturday we are heading to Kansas City to cheer on the Royals! We got a hotel room within walking distance and we are so excited for our weekend get a way! Go Royals!
