The What!

I have been lucky enough to have a couple of great weekends in a row. Last week we spent time with Jena's family, and our crazy nephew William.

We did a harbor cruise in Annapolis (William even got to drive the boat!), had a delicious dinner, woke up, went down to Annapolis for brunch, then spent the rest of the day golfing and chasing after William. While I didn't play too well, the weather was great, and it's always good to hit the links with my awesome in-laws, and Jena's parents' neighbor Bill.

Monday we went and watched Angels and Demons, which I thought was pretty good, and certainly better than the adaptation of the Da Vinci Code, which was a good book and terrible movie in my opinion. We then went over to Archie's house to see everyone, and Jena got to hang out with young Alexander again for the first time in a while.

Then we had a short week of work, and this weekend, watched the Tigers Friday, then woke up early and got a bunch of stuff done around the house before heading out for a great bike ride. Saturday was a beautiful day, and we found a sweet trail from my mom's house down to the trail along the GW Parkway. After we got done riding, we then did a bit of shopping before heading home and making a delicious dinner, including oven-baked onion rings, which were delicious! Then we watched the Tigers bounce back from tough losses Thursday and Friday, as Clete Thomas went yard twice. Yes!

Sunday, we hit the Tigers game at Camden Yards. It was another great day, 80 and sunny. We got some great seats, then took a little stroll around the Inner Harbor. It was nice and breezy, but really didn't smell all that hot. In fact, there were a ton of dead fish floating on the surface and that might have been the stinky source. Makes me fear for the Bay.

We went back to the field and watched Edwin Jackson throw a gem, as the Tigers evened the series with a 3-0 win. It's a great park, and it's always great to check out a Tigers game. They used to come twice a year, and now it's down to once, what with the ridiculous unbalanced scheduling that they do now. Grrrr. Did I mention the fact that Edwin Jackson is awesome? Well he is.

Good times. Great weekend.
