Safety City; Cincinnati Reds

Well Abby attended Safety City last week with her best friend in our hometown of Dublin Ohio. She had a blast learning about safety in all places from fire and policemen and Officer McGruff. She got to ride on a school bus, sit on a police motorcylce, ride big wheels thru a mock city as well as learn important things like when to call 911 and what to do about strangers. At the graduation on Friday all the kids sang songs that they had learned throughout the week and each had a safety theme. I was amazed at the memory these kids had, they sang alot of songs for just a few hours a day they attended last week. Mike was able to come and that was an added bonus for him and me as well as he could entertain Will as I tried to capture all the special moments.

After the graduation we all piled in the car and headed to Cincinnati for the Reds game. Will has been wearing his Griffey Jr tee shirt like crazy lately and so we thought we should get him to a game. The weather was perfect and so were the seats, we had a great view of Ken Griffey Jr and we think he waved at Will once. Kirk Herbstriet was also there as the honary captain and being that I adore him, this was a great surprise. The new stadium is definitely family friendly and we found lots of ways to entertain the kids. I included a video of the kids running the length of home plate to first place, one of the neat things to do on the outdoor level of the stadium. The Reds lost but we still had a great time. Thanks for the opportunity Lord to attend the game and return home safely. Thankyou for my family and the many great moments you have given us to share.
