We are back from our Caribbean vacation! It was tons of fun, and we had lots of great food and drank more than our share of Red Stripe. I started putting up some pictures at Flickr, so check them out! More to come!

The other night, I was shopping at the HEB supermarket to buy things for Bay’s Birthday party. It was about 10pm, and I thought it was strange that there were lots of kids there with their parents. It was a Friday night, but still, isn’t that a little late for keeping the kids out? I figured that it on the borderline, shrugged to myself, and didn’t think further about it.
Then after buying most of the food, I went across the freeway to the Super Walmart to finish up my shopping. It was now about 11pm. And there I was amazed at the number of kids, of all ages, that were there with their parents! I can understand going to the market with a sleeping baby in the carseat, but there were toddlers, young kids, pre-teens and teens running around the store, trying on clothes, playing with toys, etc. It was wild. I don’t know, maybe I am a little conservative about this, but 11pm is just too late to be out and about with the kids. I left the store a half hour later, and I could still see more families arriving in the parking lot.

Minute Maid park is a great place to see a game. There is tons of food, at reasonable prices. We each got super-astro dogs, which were huge, and I later got a bbq beef sandwich, while Mikey got a big bowl of nachos. We also had plenty of beer, peanuts and cracker jack. I was surprised by the large number of Dodger fans there. It was pretty cool. But it was kind of lame because the Astros fans had a lot to cheer about since they won the game… But, it was an awesome day at the ballpark, nonetheless!
