There was the ugly, large girl with the full VA Tech sweatsuit on (in 90 degee weather, mind you) with one of those loud voices that carries and pierces the eardrum talking about cute boys and parties to her bikini clad high school friends. And the lonely middle-aged woman tanning, listening to music, and reading a book. She seemed quite harmless until her favorite song came on her iPod. Then it was a blur of snaps, claps, and singing. I was ready to pull out the video function on my cell phone. That is until I got distracted by hairy chested dad. I'll be honest it was the most red hair I had ever seen on a person. His legs, his chest, and his back were a forest of vibrant red hair.
Today I learned that preggo girls want to be tan too. Blonde-pregnant-pretty girl stripped down to her favorite tube-top swimsuit and instantly fell asleep in the sun. Grampy and Grammy still want to catch some rays too. Grandpa stayed busy with a crossword and Grandma spent the day people-watching. Which is quite understandable considering our surroundings. So, next time I want to read a book I will definitely have to find a different spot. Read more...

Day One - Busy Bus Tour - Our trip started with a painful wake up at 6 am Friday morning. There wasn't much traffic and we made it there by eleven o'clock. We drove right into some mad traffic but were so excited to be there that it didn't matter. New York is awesome, there is so much going on, so many people, and so many gi-normous buildings. We jumped on a double decker tour bus and got to see the whole city.
Our Lady Liberty Times Square We stood in line for two hours to freeze to death on top of the Empire State Building. Day Two - Gum on the sidewalk, harrassment, & baseball - We had another eventful day that started off with Tanner and I arguing about what these black spots are all over the sidewalk. Come to find out that it really is old gum, am I the only one that didn't know this was gum?Just a great photoCanal Street (we got all of these good buys for less than $100) My first ride on a subway (I also saw a newborn baby taking her first ride from the hospital to home, talk about building up her immune system.) Tanner was very surprised when I told him to grab some papers off the printer and in the stack were a couple of Yankees tickets for the 4th of July.Getting drawn in Times Square
Day Three - Killer Grates - We were very sad to leave the wonderful city of New York. We had breakfast at a cute little diner and walked up and down Lexington Avenue checking out the street vendors. A common theme of our trip was my fear of road grates and the joy that Tanner had of freaking me out by walking on them everywhere we went.

I could watch this video every day, it was an amazing day that flew by as fast as the past two years.

Everyone was just so happy to be out at the game on such a great night. There was a group of couples sitting behind us that you could tell were definitely enjoying themselves. We were eavesdropping (not by choice) on their funny conversations and realized that they seemed kind of like us slash nothing like us. The nerd, the preppy, the party animal, the drunk, the voice of reason, the lawyer, the future doctor, and the accountant had a great time. We ended up hanging out at the bar getting to know each other til it closed and then headed over to the Shadow Room. It was pretty interesting from the bouncer thinking my ID was fake to one of our new friends getting thrown out.
The next morning was a late wake up that was followed by preparation for Tanner's first radio show The Sports Hub on WJFK 106.7. He was really nervous and excited all day. All the preparation was well worth it because Tanner and Nick, his sidekick, had a freaking awesome first show. They talked about sports and had many awesome guests Steve Wyche (from NFL network, Jamie Mottram (Yahoo! blog editor) and Chris even called in from Wyoming. After the show we met up at Buffalo Wing University for some out-of-this-world amazing wings, played bags for the first time, and then went to an ACDC cover band concert where we were totally out of place but had boatloads of fun.
