Boys of Summer

This month's update is way late. Summer has been a whirlwind. Between Cedar Point, Indians games, trips to the beach and get togethers with friends, Lois and I are wondering how summer flew by so fast. Max starts Kindergarten next week which is hard to believe. Ben will be lost without his big brother. Nobody will be picking on him and stealing his toys.

One of the highlights of the summer was my dad and I took Max to his first Indians game. I was all sentimental since my dad took me to my first Indians game 30+ years ago. When I planned this trip, I was getting that warm, fuzzy feeling like in "Field of Dreams" when Kevin Costner plays catch with his dad. The reality of it is my dad wouldn't sit in our seats because it was way too hot. Max complained the whole time he was hot and wanted popcorn, lemonade, and cotton candy. We never found the popcorn, drank about half of a frozen lemonade, and that $4 cotton candy Max wanted - he took one bite and said he didn't like it. Oh yeah, did I mention that it was hot? But at least Max got to get on the field and run around the bases after game.
