Summer Adventures

Us and summer are* intertwined now. We're really in the mix of it. It's hot out, there's lots of thunderstorms, everywhere you looks it's SO green, it's humid, the fireflies are everywhere, the mosquitoes are HUGE, and the sun isn't setting until 9:30pm. We're in the dog days of summer, and I'm loving it. (Except the mosquitoes and humidity.) Here are some pictures from some summer adventures I've had in the last week:

I went to a Tigers game with a good friend who was in town for work (and his coworker, peeking in on the other side of me). I LOVE going to baseball games! 

This past weekend was the Celtic Festival. One of my sisters is in charge of the kids section so I always "get" to volunteer there (hehe). My nieces and nephew loved having Princess Merida there (can't you tell from my nephew's face!?)

I also went to see Mary Poppins with my good friend, Sara, over the weekend. We went to the Redford Theater in Detroit, which I've blogged about before. It's an old renovated theater and it's awesome! If you live in the area, and haven't gone before, you should check it out. Here's a link to their schedule.

That guy to the right of Sara is really freaking me out right now

I was going to say something about "those summer nights" to end this post, but remember in Greece when John Travolta sings that part all high and it's soooo awkward!? Definitely the worst part of the movie. I wish it had never happened. Who told him to go falsetto on it!? Big mistake. I mean, I still like the movie, but that part makes me cringe every time.

In conclusion, summer is fun, and John Travolta should never sing in falsetto.

*there was a typo here before. I hope you will stick with me through these hard times.

I hope Merida put on her best Celtic accent.

Looks like lots of fun, but the best part of this post is the Grease reflection. I remember even as a little kid thinking,"What is he doing" You put that into words perfectly!
