Over the summer, we had our friend Liza take pictures of the three grandkids for my parents. We spent an afternoon in the park and after much bribing with food, crying and a few smiles, we got a few pictures we could work with.

One of my best friends turned thirty this past weekend. For months, her sister and my other friend Traci and I have been planning a "spy day" as Jess would eventually name it. Basically a scavenger hunt. We gathered a lot of her friends & family to participate and after many emails, some flow charts & and iPhone app, we made it happen.
We surprised her at 9:30am with her favorite custard rolls, then we kidnapped her for the day. The day went something like this... rollerskating with Ginny (college friend) & family, lunch @ Ginny's. Shopping for a new outfit (present from Mom), then pedicure & manicure (present from me). New shoes (from other college friend), pie with candles, then off to Greektown, Detroit for the evening. Dinner at Fishbones, drinks at the Casino, along with some gambling and lounge singers, then up to our corner room on the 29th floor (courtesy of Aunt Laurie & Uncle Jeff) with an amazing view, to eat cheese pizza & drink champagne at 3:30am. Phew... it was a jam packed day full of fun.
We of course made her wear flashing gear that advertise her age & make her look fabulous!
Here are some pictures from the day. Not sure why they are a little blurry, I stole them from Traci's camera so you can check them out on her blog here as well.

It's definitely that time of year. We had our traditional Halloween festival with Nona (Phil's mom) again this year. She was such a good sport hosting us, cooking and playing broken wrist and all. We had a great time as always eating, picking out pumpkins, carving (although Phil and I ended up doing all of the carving this year... who was this party for again?) and spending time with Nona.
Here are just a few pictures, I'll post more later.
