Pinball at the 'Zoo

Pinball at the 'Zoo 2014.  Keaton met us to spend the afternoon playing pinball on Thursday.  Matt's going back on Friday and Saturday.  One day was enough for me.  Don't get me wrong...pinball is fun.  I just can't play for hours and hours and hours.  Plus, I have a hard time not pulling up the pants of some guys...or talking to them about ditching the sweats for some jeans.  They'll never meet a girl to play pinball with if they don't at least try to get dressed.

Keaton and I really liked Pirates of the Caribbean.

Like father, like son.

The Wizard of Oz is still our favorite.

Austin Powers was pretty groovy, baby.


Keaton was a groomsman in his childhood friend's wedding over the weekend.  Holy cow...these kids can't be getting married yet.  We're not old enough.  The silver lining was Keaton had his hands in his pocket for the garter toss.  There was NO way he was catching that...and we're grateful (for a few years at least!).  ;-)

Easter Cooking

Cooking Easter breakfast + cooking Easter dinner = a well-deserved cocktail for me.

Monkey bread, scrambled eggs, bacon, & fruit cups.  Yum!

Ham with maple & brown sugar glaze, scalloped potatoes, green bean casserole with homemade onion strings (none of that canned fried onion crap), buttered cabbage, glazed carrots, asparagus,  and cheddar biscuits.  Oh, and there was a cherry cheesecake for dessert.  Yum!!

I'm relaxing and saving the dishes for Matt.

Keaton used to love to copy whatever Matt was doing and/or wearing.  Here's a throwback photo of him "helping" Matt do our taxes back when he was 3 years old.  We weren't audited, so he must have done a good job!

He borrowed Matt's glasses and calculator so he could do HIS taxes.

It's Official

Yay...Keaton has officially been offered and officially accepted a position at the company he interned at over the summer and has been working at part-time this school year.  He'll be 'Applications Developer' at the local branch of the company after he graduates in June.  The company he'll be working for is awesome!  It's young and hip and he's really enjoyed working there so far.  They have a very relaxed work atmosphere complete with a game room with video games and a game console, snack rooms stocked with products from their clients...and an ice cream bar.  He's so excited...and so are we!  It's great to watch him begin the next chapter of his life and see what exciting things are coming next!!

Six different flavors of Plainwell ice cream available...yum!
Every. Single. Day.

They actually have an old soda fountain counter...complete with hot fudge continuously heating.
