Spa Day

Every year, a group of 6 of us go to the Nationwide Beauty Academy and Spa School to get a day package for ourselves. This year, Ashli, Jessica, Paige, Autumm, my sister Kaitlin and myself went and enjoyed 7 hours of pampering (for less than $100!). Here are some pics from the day...

Columbus Crew Game

So I am totally stealing this from Ashli...

Soccer Camp Registration with 1 Crew Ticket : $80

Two Extra Crew Tickets : $40
Popcorn, Soda, and Beer : $21
The Chance to Lead the Players on to the Field : PRICELESS
Gavin participated in the HOSA Soccer Camp this summer. As part of the camp, they were entitled to a ticket to the Columbus Crew Game where they could be part of the tunnel that the guys run through at the beginning of the game. We purchased extra tickets to be there with him and joined the Welshes for a nice night out. As we were standing in line, this lady came up to us and asked if Gavin and Nathan would be willing to walk some of the players onto the field! We were so excited (much more than I think they were - since they could not comprehend how cool of a thing that was). They were the first 2 onto the field (with the 2 captains for the other team) - but got to walk along side the Crews 2 captains also. Patrick was loosing his noodle over how cool it was! He was so proud that Gavin was hanging out with some of the guys who play on the US Soccer team! He made sure I included pics that showed just how close he was! And to top it off, our seats were perfect and the Crew won in extra minutes with an amazing header to secure first place position and to win the Trillium Cup. They also beat some MLS record for most unbeaten games at home. It was uber awesome! Click here and here to see more pictures.

I'll be back!

I have taken my annual summer hiatus from blogging but promise to be back soon :-)
