England – April 2008 – London – Westminster Abbey

(From May 2, 2017)

Thought I’d post a couple more photos from our England trip back in 2008. This London’s Westminster Abbey on a rainy, overcast day (i.e. a typical London day). No pictures were allowed in the Abbey though. 😦

Abbey entrance below. Look at all of the people for an early Saturday morning.

Game Night with Lizzy – May 23, 2011

Tonight, Lizzy and I played Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries tonight. (Sara wasn’t feeling well, so it was just the two of us.)


The Board

Lizzy played really, really well. She out scored me in destination tickets by over 50 points. I thought for sure she had me beaten. It came down to counting train points (which we do at the end of the game instead of as you go because it’s easier). I wound up barely winning 151-149 because I had the 27 point, 9-train-long route from Murmank to Lieska. We both had a blast!!!

Cardinal Game Day – April 14, 2010

April 14, 2010 – my 1st Cardinal game of 2010.

Joining me on this epic right of spring were my friends Kent Dunford, Dan Moisson, and Josh Wick (along with his son Drew).

Upon arriving at the stadium an hour before the gates opened, we walked around and viewed the statues to the former Cardinal greats. Below are several of my favorites:
Stan Musial
Stan “The Man” Musial – THE GREATEST Cardinal player of all-time. PERIOD. (Although, in another 10 years, that may change, but for now, Stan is still THE MAN.)

England – April 2008 – Oxford

Work is done… off to London for the weekend before heading home. However, what would a trip to England be without a stop in Oxford – home of the oldest university in the English-speaking world.

We stopped in for lunch at the Eagle and Child – a pub that was the frequent hangout of literary giants Lewis Carroll, J.R.R. Tolkien, and C.S. Lewis. The food was outstanding. The atmosphere was awesome.
