Fun Saturday in the D

My first week off from work was quite hectic.  On my very last day of school my amazing, caring, selfless adorable grandpa passed away.  I am so very lucky to have had some amazing grandparents on my mom's side.  As I looked through many photos I was reminded that they were at every important moment in my life and the small ones.  I'm so glad I have memories to pass on to my little love who is named for her wonderful great-grandma whom she never got to meet.  I didn't mean to start this post out this way but it needs to be acknowledged and I'm not fully able to discuss how sad and how much I will miss them for the rest of  my life. 

Needless to say my first week off was stressful.  My in laws also had some issues (sprained ankle, fractured bone in hand and a burst appendix) soo yeah, stress.  I had major issues finding someone to watch my kiddo while I went to the visitation and funeral but thank god for friends. 

I also had a second interview and so by the weekend I was spent. 

We took a party bus to the Tiger's game and I'm so glad we did.  I needed it.  It was great to unwind and just have fun.  Probably the best way to end that hellish week!

  Our seats were high.  Way high.  When we got there we went straight for a foot long coney dog cuz we were hungry.  Then we walked up and up and up and sat down.  These weren't even technically our seats because there were open seats when we got up there and we didn't want to crawl across people.  I think we may have watched a half-inning of the game from here.  The sun came out and it was hot and we knew our cousin was at the game too so we started wandering to find him.
 And oh yeah, that tiny spec on the mound? Justin Verlander making his first start of the season!!

We ran into this guy.  The guys decided that they needed to find chocolate bacon on a stick.  (ew why ? ) so we went wandering.  We found some kind of bacon that they tried but not chocolate bacon.  No one seemed to know where it was located.  Though we did end up with some Java Vanilla Ported that was delicious.

My aunt, uncle and cousin were also at the game and we found her wandering out of a bathroom after we stalked her seats and could not find her. Then we walked back to where our cousin was sitting and then the guys decided they needed to find brisket nachos.  So we were watching the game from right beside this stand when a group of people got up to leave and asked us if we wanted their seats.  Uhh yes.  They had awesome big comfy seats!

Our view upgraded considerably! It was a very exciting last two innings which sadly ended with the Tigers losing to the Indians.  Boo.

We still managed to have a good time. ;)  When we got back to town we ended up going to our favorite local bar and then came home.  It was fun to pretend we were 21 again. ;)

We won't mention that I spent all day yesterday on the couch watching McBride movies.  Or whoops I just did.

This week is a bit more relaxed but I have a lot to get ready for our annual camping trip!

Did you have a good weekend? Do you like going to baseball games? Does chocolate bacon sound good to you?
