Scenes From Our Week - Week 44

After a week of being gone, it seems like it takes another week to catch up at home.  So, yes, this post is a week behind.  We had a great vacation starting off with a Cubs vs Pirates game in Chicago and then moving on to total relaxation at our cousin's cabin on Lake Vermillion in Minnesota.  As soon as we leave there, I am counting the days until we can go back again.  It is one of my favorite weeks in the whole year!  Thanks for being wonderful hosts Melanie and Mike!


We made a quick stop by the United Center for this photo opp.


We stopped at Clarke's before the game for some appetizers.  
It was right next to our PARK WHIZ parking spot.  
If you have to go to an event, that is the way to park.  It was smooth, cheap and close to Wrigley!


Time for the Cub vs Pirates game!




After attending a Pirates game in Pittsburgh a couple summers ago, I have a mild obsession with Pirate 1st baseman Garrett Jones.   



We had awesome seats.


Even though the Cubs lost, it was exciting to see this player, called up from AAA just that day, get his first hit during the 8th inning on the Pirates pitcher who had so far had a no-hitter.  Pretty exciting day for him!

Mike and Pat headed out for an early morning fishing excursion.


Pat caught the one and only walleye.


Reagan tried fishing for crawfish off the dock.


TUBING!






Water Skiing!




Daddy/Daughter Boat Ride


Such an amazing view with a full moon over the lake!


Pat learned how to play Cribbage


Me, Jena and Melanie - My niece, Jena got to come along this year!


Cousins!

Our final boat ride that ended up getting us all a little wet!


The seas were a bit angry, my friend.  We had to turn around and come back.


But, we got this great view after we got back.
