Cooperstown was so crazy today that we ended up going to the Farmer's Museum instead of the Baseball Hall of Fame.  Don't laugh too hard, it was very Cool!  In fact, it was extra exciting because part of the museum was closed for a private party......for Tony Gwynn!!!!!  I was only able to get a couple super blurry pictures of him through the antique glass in the door, but here are a couple other photos from our day.  By the way, we do have numerous parking options scoped out for tomorrow, so we won't be missing out on the important festivities. 8^)

I thought you might enjoy this:

"Thank you, Cal Ripken, Jr. and Tony Gwynn.

As Major League Baseball contorts itself through this last grim spasm of the Steroid Era and replaces Hank Aaron with Barry Bonds in the record book, for one glorious day our nation can turn its jaundiced eyes to Cooperstown. There, two of the classiest men in the history of sports will remind us that incredible individual achievements needn't be accompanied by boorish individualism.
It is poetic that Ripken and Gwynn, exemplars of a bygone era, are entering the Baseball Hall of Fame together."

I also emailed you and "Ode to 2007" from Fox Sports. It was Great. It sounds like you are having a great time at Cooperstown, and we are so happy you could be there. Take lots of great pictures and we will look forward to sharing them later.


The pictures are awesome. I was wondering how the card was working. I know it is a little slow but better than nothing. Maybe no cell service is OK for a bit. Kisses and hugs to all and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Hi Blaine. I found the link to your blog on Christy's blog. Wow! You guys look great. Grace is adorable. Justin is a cutie too. Daniel and Tyler are so big and Kayla is a beautiful little lady. You are pretty brave traveling across the country with 5 kids, but how cool. We have talked about doing that one day with our 3 kids. There are pictures of our family here:
Please give Will and the kids hugs from the Kanes. So good to read about your fabulous family and see pictures. Lots of love to you!
