yummy fingers
I think this is one of the best pictures I have taken of Charlotte.  She is just too cute!  This was the last official Saturday morning spent babysitting.  From here out we can just go down to visit at a reasonable hour on weekends!

offices on campus
I love that Sheridan Road is lined with old houses that now house university departments. Much more character than a bunch of large buildings.

This is the boat that Aubrey will be sailing up Lake Michigan for the next few days.

You can track his progress at and search for Zingara (Division: Multihull, Section: 2). The site is not working at 2pm as I post this but hopefully soon. Aubrey's start is at 2:10pm

no air-conditioning
Photo taken at 5:13pm in the living room of our apartment.  It is approximately 90° with two fans going.  We're a bit warm but approaching storms have taken down the humidity a lot.

Show Canceled!
A tornado warning forced us to take shelter under the stadium for 45 minutes. This was what we re-emerged to see. Shortly after the rest of the competition was canceled, before all the top corps could perform. We were pretty upset and I spent a long time feeling like our vacation was ruined.

DCI Minnesota
On the field at TCF Bank Stadium is Minnesota Brass, and all-age senior corps. Our friend James is on the snare line and did an awesome job! This was after 2 weather delays because of rain and lightening.

along the Mississippi River in Iowa
The Great River Road is a beautiful drive.  We went up the Iowa and Minnesota side on our way to Minneapolis this past weekend.  This photo was taken at a scenic outlook in Iowa, I'll have to see if I can find it again.

Professional attire
 I love this Calvin Klein skirt and the Clarks shoes.  Both are so comfortable yet look really great. Yay for sales at Macy's!

too hot for the playground
Usually this playground on my walk home is full of kids.  It's 90° with a heat index a couple degrees higher at 5pm when I walked past.  At least the humidity is below 50% so its not unbearable.

Hair getting bigger by the second.  The restaurant had lost power so we couldn't pay for carry out with our debit card.  Aubrey had to go across the street to a gas station to get cash. I was bored in the car.

constructing an update
@dailyshoot #ds228 Construction seems to be perpetual: streets, sidewalks, buildings. Make a photo of something under construction today.  (man this html newsletter was a pain to figure out how to send.  Will be hitting the outbox tonight after my tester -Aubrey- gets home!)
