ITEM: Lefty pulled it off.
As for the weekend, it was indeed a busy one. Tailgating and attending the Brewer game Saturday was a BLAST, despite the loss. At least a Lyle Overbay bobblehead was acquired. Good times were had with _guy_incognito, dewgirl, dr_r0ck, xfervor and wife and wife's twin sister, Shooter & Big D of no LJs, and various other hooligans. Barring was accomplished afterward with Mr. r0ck and Mr. & Mrs. Incognito. Cats were avoided much later, and with much success.
Saturday was Maxine's 1st birthday party, and it was absolutely perfect. Great food, all sorts of family (including all grandparents and step-grandparents, both uncles, etc etc etc). The only two LJers there were dylan41 (who was wearing a stupid Texas hat) and back2me (who was wearing no hat at all). Maxine was a little overwhelmed by the sheer size of her party, and did not partake of her first chocolate cake. She did, however, show certain people that she is getting really good at walking and going up stairs!
UPDATE: It seems that I haven't been good at releasing the information that from 8/17- 8/23, I'll be in upstate NY for my cousin's wedding and grandfather's 90th birthday. If all goes well, I'll also be hitting Cooperstown with the BIL but that remains to be seen.
