My First Baseball Game

I went to my very first baseball game on Sunday, June 29th and the first time I've ever been in the Metrodome. We got there around noon and had to pick up our tickets. Here are some pictures from the game.

Neat website

I found this website listed on another blog and thought it was pretty cool. You can check out some books before you buy them. It only has children's books. It has a lot of books listed. It's pretty neat. It's called Lookybook and the link for it: http://www.lookybook.com/index.php I can't figure out how to post the link that you can just click on the name I type and it will send you to the link. I tried but I guess I'm not too compute saavy.

Pictures of the kids

The kids had proffesional pictures done at the beginning of June. Here is the picture we got. Olivia is looking so grown up and so is Xavier. It's weird, her hair looks so light now that she is finally getting some hair.


Also here's another picture of the kids together.

Books

I read Twilight by Stephenie Meyer a while ago. I think it was over a month ago. It was a really good book. Anyways I then reserved the second and third book in the series and I've been on a waiting list at the library forever! I just checked on the status and New Moon is in transit. Which means I'll have it in a day or two. I'm still waiting on Eclipse. I'm in line, 73 of 226. So that means there are 226 people that have reserved that book. They're making a movie out of Twilight and I think that's made the books popular. They're teen fiction books about vampires. I love reading vampire books. I also like vampire movies and stuff. I really liked that show Moonlight but Dan thought it was the stupidest show ever. I don't like the evil vampires but the vampires that have personality. It stinks though that Moonlight was cancelled. They kind of gave the show an ending. Mick (the vampire) ended up with Beth (the mortal). Why they cancel shows I like, I don't know. A while back they cancelled the show Invasion. Yet another show I started watching and ended after one season. At least I still have Lost, two seasons left. Also Heroes, looking forward to the fall. But for the summer I've got a ton of books I can read. So I am excited for finally be reading my new vampire book.

Xavier's blog

I made a new blog for Xavier. He takes so many goofy pictures that I thought it would be fun to post them for people to see. I made the blog by invitation only so I'll have to invite some people. Needless to say it is a work in progress. T-ball starts tomorrow so I'll have to bring my camera.
