classic JOKE monday

In honor of Halloween.

How do you say goodbye to a vampire???

So long sucker!

BAHH hahha

and this is not a joke.  News story.  On the way to the Tigers there was a bit of a traffic jam and we hit it.  We found out about three hours before we drove down this highway a guy got shot in the bum...results closed the highway in search of the man.
really a scary situation!  As far as I know he has not been found....

Yesterday the family went to Game Three of the world series! [and the bultemas/vryhofs]
and they lost and didn't even play that good.

BUT there is still a chance tonight
a very small chance but there is a always a chance 

We had a great time at the game regardless of the results
got there early and watched batting practice
had a little ballpark food aka a ballpark
and then bundled up for the game

honey to the moon

such a great time away with the Hubby.
We travel well together :) 
We had three busy days being VERY touristy.  We went every where in Rome and then headed to Santorini in the Greek Islands to relax [but also did some day trips] then back to Rome, where we took the train to Florence for the day.  Then it was back to reality, but a good reality!

LOTS and LOTS of pictures, J only gave me a little grief for the amount I took!

We arrived at 8am, got to the hotel and went walking around

 Day two: Started at the Spanish steps

 A stop for gelato
 Great view of Rome
 Day Three: Audio TOUR time for J!
A beautiful park in the middle of the city
 Day Four: Athens
Nothing like starting the day with a Mcflurry and coke zero :) 
 It was VERY hot

 But we still hiked to the top to see this

 Day Five: AHHH finally made it to Santorini [check off the bucket list]
Very very happy wife, so happy life 
 It was a good morning

pool time
 In to the town of Fira for dinner and sunset and shopping

 Day six: We rented a car and toured the whole island. so much fun!

 Stopped at the other side for another beautiful sunset dinner
Day seven: Another day trip, this time to volcano and hot springs, but first through the donkey so so gross!

 One more bit of relaxing!
 and watching the sunset at the hotel
 Day Eight we travel
Day Nine: We took the train to Florence

 Dodo Store just for Grandma!
 One last bit of Pizza and Pasta 
 Day Ten: We are off! 5am flight
other than almost missing our plane in Paris we made it home safely!
