The Big Bash Was a Big Success!
The picture on the left shows our relatives gathering for the Watermelon Day parade in Stanhope on Saturday morning. It's not quite everybody, but it shows Claire (sitting on the curb) and my Uncle Charlie (sitting in the chair behind the green chair at left), because they didn't get to the Cubs game on Friday evening. (Samantha seems to be missing from this picture, too.)
The other picture IS the PERFECT Iowa Cubs game we all attended Friday evening. (The tall Titlest=hat in the front doesn't belong to us.) That's Joe Markey with his dad, Bob, in Cubs' jerseys in the front row of our group (far left in the picture). We had four rows with 8 seats in them, but didn't fill every one.
The weather had been 'threatening' for most of the day, but we headed out anyway, and it turned into a fabulous evening, the the Iowa Cubs victorious (over Nashville) and the fireworks afterward were fantastic!
