Throwback Thursday 08/21/2014

Today’s #tbt is Ayden’s very first RAYS game.  Well first, if you don’t count the Spring Training game we attended when I was pregnant (before I found out I was pregnant) and the regular season game after I found out. It was an afternoon game (the only kind that made sense to go to with a 9month old baby. We were able to take Grandpa with us (Berk’s dad, his mom had to work). It was a very interesting trip for me as I had to pump in the back seat so that I didn’t have to take Ayden anywhere […]

Who do you think you are???

Well, who do I think I am? I’m so excited that the 2nd season of Who Do You Think You Are? is on TLC. If you haven’t heard about it, each episode is about a celebrity finding out their genealogy. I am fascinated by family history and would love to be able to trace mine past my grandparents. One of my great-uncles on my mother’s mother’s side has kept track of her family and has published a book for the family called The Branches and Twigs. I also know that an aunt on my father’s side has kept track of […]
