Blake got to stand in for his dad today as he threw out the first pitch at the Gallia Academy vs. Symmes Valley High School baseball game.  He thought it was pretty cool, especially since he got a new hat out of it and got to keep the ball!

87/365 Happy 13th Birthday Grant!

Today is the big day... Our first born is now a TEENAGER!  He even got the day off from school :). He started the day out with a birthday cinnamon roll then this evening he chose Hana Japanese Steakhouse for his birthday dinner in Chillicothe.  From there we headed to Columbus to stay the night and to check out the new Condo that Ryan will be renting while he's up there through the week.  We had cupcakes and Grant opened a few presents before we called it a night.  Next weekend we are having a family birthday lunch and taking Grant and his friends out for pizza and a movie so the celebration will continue.  Happy 13th Birthday Grant!!!

77/365 More Adventures of Flat Stanley

Flat Stanley went on a couple more adventures this afternoon... Kennedy took him to her Variety Show practice and swimming (although he is laminated, we decided it probably wasn't a good idea to let him in the pool:).  Grant's best friend Isaac, who moved to St. Louis 2 years ago, is in town and staying at the Hampton Inn and invited friends to come visit and swim with him... It was great spending time with them!
