An evening walk on the lake

We took a walk after an early dinner this evening along Lake Michigan.

Minutes after we arrived, it began to look a bit ominous...

I wondered how I would keep my camera from getting wet...people dry, electronics don't! But the storm seemed to focus it's energy over the lake.

The kids didn't seem to mind at all. In fact, they didn't even seem to notice the clouds.

We had a hard time getting them back to the car--nothing that a little game of follow the leader won't solve!

Happy 9th Birthday Joey!

We headed to a Kane Couty Cougars game for Joey's 9th Birthday. What a hoot! We had seats right above 1st base.

Joey and his friends had lots of fun trying to catch the foul balls, souvenier balls and other items thrown up into the crowd, but in the end, only the birthday boy was lucky enough to snatch one.

The night was perfect...great seats, lovely weather, good/fun kids and fireworks to boot. Who could ask for more?
