Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix

Jordan was given tickets to the car races a couple of weeks ago, so we took the fam to Detroit's Belle Isle to check it out.

The one thing we didn't think about was how LOUD it would be. We sat there watching, and covering our ears and luckily some veteran fans saw us and gave us all ear plugs to help drown out the noise. 

There were tons of thing to do for the kids. Here is Thaisy getting a butterfly.

Skyler HAD to get Spider man!
                                   Here is Gracie waiting patiently for her turn!

                                            Here is the end result.

                                                Jordan in front of his Dream Car!

                                                      Thaisy in front of hers :)
 I am the happiest when we have days like this where I get undivided time with my little family.We have been having so much fun here in Michigan. There is so much to see and do and best of all Jordan is done for the day by 5pm but the difference out here is he is REALLY done. No study groups, no homework, no meetings; we get to have him for the whole night! Of course, with the NBA finals going on LeBron is getting a little bit of his time too :) Hooray for summer!

Our First Summer Trip

Oh Canada!

We took a trip to Toronto our first weekend in Michigan to watch the Mets play the Toronto Blue Jays. One of Jordan's best friends, Scott Hairston, plays for the Mets so we got to go see him play.
Here we are in front of the Blue Jays Stadium.

Oh man, I love this family of mine!

Pic of Scottie from the stands.

After the game we got to go by the locker rooms and meet up with Scott. Here we are with his wife Jill and their darlin' boys.

This is a bad picture, but the Toronto  vendors had one of THE BEST hot dogs I have ever had. Our hotel was down town, so Jordy and I put the kids to bed and had dinner with a view of the lights :) 
The next pictures are just a series of pics I took of Thais and Grace while waiting for Jordan and Sky to check out of our Hotel.

Pat-a-cake, pa- a-cake.......

How big is my nose in this pic!?!

We had breakfast in the cutest little cafe. 

Here we are waiting for our food,

Toronto was one of the most beautiful and clean cities I have ever been to. I absolutely loved our visit. I love how on vacations you have time to stop and smell the flowers!
