The Grays Visit the Grays

In case that last post was just too personal, here's one a little less nitty gritty on the details. Nope, no underoos in this post.

We had company this past Saturday, and we had a full day of fun!

After the youngest (and oldest and those in between) had their afternoon naps and some lunch, we were ready for our activities.

First up, visiting the rooftop of the (used to be) tallest building in Cincinnati. It's becoming our tradition. If you visit us, we will take you there.

Some people didn't enjoy it so much...

Kristoffer was a nervous wreck! He was found either holding on to the sides or casually strolling the center of the rooftop.

Dana enjoyed the view, and honestly, Kaden probably got better views than his restricted brother.

At least he was being careful, but we may have given him a hard time...down all 47 flights of stairs. Then we dropped it.

Such a cute little family :)

For my birthday, Graeters (the best ice cream eva) sent me an email for a free sundae. Ok. You don't have to offer me free ice cream twice before I take you up on it.

Karterman opted for the cookies. His mama said he doesn't care much for ice cream. That must run in the Tomaw side. Kyler and I eat ice cream every other night.

So this kid might look like a Tomaw, but he eats like a Gray.

Then we just strolled on over to THE REDS GAME!

...where we had incredible seats in the third row of right field.

Seriously fantastic seats.

The new skyscraper hovering over the field.

And by far the cutest companions next to me.

Oh, and to my other side too.

Karter is at such a cute age. He loved everything about the game! The right fielder, star of the show Jay Bruce, was right in front of us. I may have taught Karter to yell "Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce". And we made the countdown to the 7th inning stretch for him to sing his song "Take Me Out to the Ballgame!" He loved it. And then sang it five more times when the guy next to us said he did a good job.

Seriously, this was one of the best baseball games I've ever seen. I can't remember the score. [Yes, I can tell you the combination to my middle school locker but I forget the score to Saturday's game.] There were probably five home runs, if not more, by the 5th inning. AND! One of them went to the couple next to Kristoffer, who then gave the ball to Karter. He was SoOoOo happy!

Both of the boys did extremely well. Karter was by far more into the game than Kado. So Kyler spent the last couple of innings walking Kaden around and apparently letting him climb all over the show cars that Chevy had on hand. Whatever keeps him busy.

At the beginning, there was a slight fear of rain. So Kyler kept checking the radar on his new phone. Apparently that radar isn't the most accurate because according to it, we should've gotten rained on.

But we're so glad it didn't! We enjoyed the game so much, but it was probably the company that made it so sweet!


  1. Thank you so much for hosting us, we all had a great time! Karter enjoyed telling everyone at church that he got a ball from BRUUUUUUUUUCE!

  2. Fun times! You're making me hungry for some chocolate-chunk-loaded Graetner's right now...
