YOU WON'T BELIEVE IT!!! THE PINCKNEY PIRATES WON THEIR FIRST GAME IN A YEAR (since going 0-11 last year) AGANST SALEM last FRIDAY... 40-13!!!
Norm Lampi said, "I think those kids knew that they were a couple plays away from winning some games last year...and they BELIEVE."
I don't want to speak too soon, but Brighton is the next test this weekend. They are coming off a waxing from Rockford (40-7ish) I think...and well...angry they will be...but again...saddened by a Pirate Swashbuckling beating!

Bec and I returned from Maui last Saturday. We had an amazing time, checking out the various sites, relaxing and getting ready for the school year to begin. This is a beautiful part of the world that we recommend going to visit!! We have more pics to show when you come visit!

All I have to say is T-H-O-M-A-S was larger than life! We hit up Flint's finest Huckleberry Railroad and met the Blue Monster my son adores and we have stock in. Y'all should have seen Caleb's eyes!!! 40 minute ride with Thomas, getting freaked-out by thethe railroad boss mascot "Sir Thopham Hatt" (see pic), coloring and playing with hundreds of train hungry toddlers = $60.....having our son solo for the day and seeing his reaction upon his first glimpse at the Brit Pop Star, Thomas...pricless!!!

What a fun night in Detroit City!
We went to Fishbone's for dinner, we strolled the revived streets of Detroit, and we were privvy to see the league leading Tigers defeat the Texas Rangers, 4-2.
Best of all, I won the 'Tiger Care' award for being the designated driver on the way home.

Bec and I arrived on Maui last friday night after 3 flights, 8hours in the air and long lines due to security. We stayed the first two nights near the airport and drove the road to Hana and also visited Lahaina in our convertable..pretty wild. On Sunday, we came to Wailea, on the western shore of Maui, were we have been staying. It is amazing, so beautiful and peaceful. We are having a good time resting and enjoying each other's company. I will post some more pictures when we get home. Aloha!

As most of you all know, Becky and I have set out on a most excellent adventure, covering more that 10,000 miles to Brighton, Seattle and Maui. We had an great time in Michigan with Nana and Papa, they are great hosts. We were glad to get to see Jeff and Steph, Caleb and Eden on Thursday, Steve and Shae on Saturday in the Myuth and Wes and Sarah in beautiful, historic Marshall, Michigan. We enjoyed relaxing, cooking, eating and Meijers. As of Yesterday, we boarded a 4 hour 8min. flight to Seattle, were we will visit with Becky's family. We made history in that as of 7am we were passing the beautiful Mt.Brighton, and in the same day, had a beautiful view of Mt. Rainer. While we are in the great Northwest, we will take in the breathtaking views and get prepared for our next venture. Check back for the next update...SEATTLE.

Here's a photo of us reeling around the fountain in Marshall, MI. Good to see those jet-setters (B&B) for a little while before they're off to the next destination. What you can't see in this pic is that half of Dad's shirt is soaking in the fountain behind him. Made for a good time. Ah, memories.
Thanks for all the shout outs on my B-day, 28 feels good! Sarah hit one out of the park by getting me tickets to see Bob Dylan. He's coming to the Fort in a few weeks, less than a mile from our house. I'm pumped. Thats's all, looking forward to Cali part deux this weekend. till then...peace
