Well, it's over. I'm talking about the 2007 World Series, and the Boston Red Sox have done it again!! With a strikeout in the bottom of the ninth, Papelbon sealed the deal (a four game sweep of the Colorado Rockies) for the 2007 World Champions!! Congratulations Boys!!!!

Melon?? What Melon??

JP brought in some "Fresh Melon" ice cream bars today, and from what I understand, they're REALLY good. However, my curiosity got the best of me, so I read the ingredients:
  • Corn Syrup
  • White Sugar
  • Processed Whole Milk Powder
  • Processed Butter
  • Condensed Milk

Don't get me wrong, I'm not unappreciative of what JP did, I thought that was very nice of him. I just prefer the yogurt covered pretzels!!!! Thanks JP (notice there's no link to his blog site ... ask him why there isn't)!!

Newest Cornhole Boards

This past weekend I finished up my second set of cornhole boards. This set of boards wasn't for me ... it was for my brother-in-law. I told him he needed the practice since I always seemed to beat him. :) Well, here's a picture of his new set of boards ... delivered to him on the Sunday that the Jets played the Giants. I bet you can't tell which of the two he roots for each Sunday!!

North Georgia State Fair

My family and I made our annual trek to the North Georgia State Fair last Thursday night. We go every year to chow down on funnel cakes, root beer floats (with homemade ice cream), caramel apples, cotton candy, and everything else that's bad for you. This year's free concert was Craig Morgan; a country music artist that we really enjoy listening to. He played two of my current favorite country music songs. Hey, you can't really go wrong for a $5.00 admission charge (actually $2.50 with 2 for 1 tickets from Party City)!!

Abbie cared less for the concert, and more for the goats!!! She really loves those little guys ... actually, she loves to pet and talk to them, but she didn't want anything to do with feeding them. She left that up to Mommy, Daddy, and Aunt Dede!! She also rode a pony for the very first time which was something we never thought she would do.

And, to our amazement, she actually ASKED to go on some rides. Here she is riding "Dragon Tales" all by herself. I think we were more scared than she was as she unknowingly raised herself into the air when the ride started. Daddy took her on the Dumbo ride, but (oh darn) no photos are available. HA!!!!
