peanuts & cracker jacks.

Ahhhh.
Summer to me equals three things...
pools.
watermelon.
baseball games.


My brother Ryan was lucky enough to sing
the National Anthem at a AAA baseball game.

The hubs and I brought Parkie along because Ryan
just happens to be his favorite person in the world!

Their connection is UNBELIEVABLY, INDESCRIBABLE.
Before Parkie could "hear" he would sit and watch
Ryan sing to him, in awe.
And of course at home he demands to
watch his YouTube videos.








HaHa! Fourteen year olds think its amusing you can spell poop with your hands.
ok. sodoi. :)

As for Ryan, he is single right? Well, he is about my age, does he have a blog/myspace/msn etc? Ask him if he wants a friend? ;)

Ryan was so cute in that video!
PS I've known a few girls who've liked him, even though he "looks 2 and sounds like a girl" I love the bit with both of you about the priesthood too, he's right, some of us know!
