Chase and Jack

Usually when I write those two names together i am refering to Chase and one of his buddies. Not this time. This time I am talking about our day yesterday. It was a big one and I'm tired. I do feel the need to write this though. I started this blog a little over a year ago because we were taking a cross country trip. I though it would be a good way to keep my friends and family up to date with what we were doing and then I wouldn't have to retell the same stories over and over again. Then it seemed like a good idea to keep it going. I figured my kids could possibly use it one day as proof to their future shrinks as the explanation for it all. They would sit in the chair, hand over the bound blog, shrink would read it and say, "Yes, it all makes sense. Your parents were slightly crazy."
So, keeping with our tradition I will share how we ran them ragged yesterday. It all started off with a trip to the water park with their camp. Then I raced them home. We got changed and went down to the Phillies game. Which, was fun, I will admit. I got to sit right next to the guy who has the laser and shoots the pitcher and says how fast the ball was going. "Fast ball 85." I was on the inside scoop. I don't follow baseball at all, but apparently Chase Utley is a good one, (and I love his name, his mom was obviously cool) so I took his picture while he was getting ready to bat.

Then we watched the game, which they lost, bummer. Then the kids did the base running thing. Only a little blood from Chase's knee.

We rushed them out of there and made our way to the Jack Johnson concert. We wanted to get there early because we had lawn seats and wanted to be close. It was gorgeous out. We put our stuff down and right away ran into our friends.

They played hackysack
Bryna and Eric came

Keith and Lisa
and of course Jack was awesome.......
I'm kinda tired today.

Geez. That's all I did ALL summer.... running this camp is seriously cutting into my social life.

Well, its over on Friday and I have 5 moths off. I;ll try to get out more. You've inspired me.

What a great day. Your kids aren't going to need shrinks, but it's going to be interesting to see what kind of parents they turn out to be, and what kind of grandparent you are going to be. I know that probably kills you, to hear grandparent and your name in the same sentence, but it's a long way off. Just thinking about it makes me smile. You're going to be the most fun grandparent that ever lived.
