A few photos from various events, including a trip to get the pumpkins at Wiards, carving the pumpkins (yes, Michael’s choice required a saw to slice open), a pre-10/31 celebration in Saline featuring Abby and Michael in their Astronaut* outfits, and a couple of random shots including Abby’s “Daisy” (pre-Girl Scouts) induction, and an 8-point buck in our backyard this week:

Last week I took Abby and Mike to see their big cousin Jack play tackle football for his squad.  Jack was all over the field like a crazed dog: kicking, punting, running, tackling..and getting it done:

Thanks for everyone who made it out to the new spot.  A great day – weather held up for the most part and Michigan State takes a step closer to evening the all-time Dooley Brothers series with a crazy overtime win.

Ron and Dad watched the game on the field and a great time was had by all.

A fine effort by the Okemos team this year didn’t translate, finishing another very mediocre 6 strokes under par in the 2009 Beebe Open in Haslett. It was the 20th anniversary of the massive scramble held at Meridian Sun golf course the last Saturday in June.

This year the core team of Kelley, Ron and Greg was joined by the skills of Robert ‘Beebe Bobby’ Pelon who contributed nicely by sinking two 30+ putts, one good for an eagle on #8, another for a birdie on the tricky par 3 11th.

Afterwards the scene was once again the Mayfair Bar and endless stacks of boxes provided by many folks but especially Woody and Earl, who shared some of their team’s second place and skin prize money. Enjoy a few photos from the big day:
