Redemption/next generation

Kickball went well tonight. We beat the team we lost the championship to last season, 7 - 1. We played great, redemption is ours. We also had a fun cast (see pics below) of the next generation of Go-go's. Josephine, Cashel, and Felix were all on site (two with Tokiyo onesies on). It felt good to win, we felt like a family. Darren was the MVP.

Ask and you shall receive...

Here are some before and after shots of the front yard for the anonymous comment writer who requested them and for the not so anonymous folks who have been asking for them. We are psyched! I am still hoping that some show on HGTV is going to arrive to transform the back yard because it is a disaster. Weeds grow like crazy when it is both raining and sunny every day. Don't worry- new windows and a front door without decorative glass panels are coming soon- hence, the cool looking zoning sign in the window.

what happened to my life??

here are some of the highlights of my saturday...

took the car to get an oil change
tag-sale'ing in the neighborhood with the dog
meeting and chatting it up with the neighbors and the mail-lady
lots of yard work
farmers market
hot dogs at the christmas tree shop
four seasons garden center
dinner at a mediocre pizza place in a strip mall
asleep by nine on the couch

meanwhile, a bunch of my friends were raging it up at a concert in new york and most likely spent saturday sleeping in and recovering. i'm not sure when this happened to my life. the good news is... the front yard looks fantastic. the bad news is...i actually enjoyed my dorky saturday!

Making/Selling Snowboards

Friday I spent the afternoon at Burton's factory in South Burlington. We were shooting an ad with Kevin making his own board. I had not been to the factory in about seven years. What really stuck with me, was how labor intensive it is to make a board. With all the high tech manufacturing equipment there, it still takes a ton of hand work by a single person. These boards truly are "handmade". I'll have a new appreciation when I make my first turn next year.

Welcome Felix Delehanty Roesch!!!

Felix was born last night at around 7:05 pm. The nurses and doctors said Shannon made giving birth look easy, although she might tell a different story. My mom and I got to meet him like one minute after he was born. What an amazing experience- I was so happy to share in that moment. He is beautiful...with a full head of strawberry blond hair and weighs 8lbs 2 ozs. Today he got to meet his Grandpa Doug and Grandma Elizabeth. Felix and his proud parents are all doing well... happy and healthy. They will be heading home tomorrow. Jay and I could not be more thrilled to be an aunt and uncle!!

Close one.

We were up three runs going into the 7th. But we could not hold on. The Enhancement Performers had a five run 7th and won by two. I think I could have been smarter with the line up and we need to step up the defense. We'll be back next week, ready to play, and have a beverage or two. More photos here.

HOT! at the beach

Yesterday was the hottest day of Isabel's life. After a night in Boston, we spent the weekend at the beach. We were living the high life, actually we were drinking High Life. Something about the clear bottle, they go down real smooth on the beach. Maegen and Greg actually went into the arctic waters, Isabel and I just got our feet wet.

Robert Plant and Allison Krauss

Thursday night we made our way to Boston to see a Robert Plant and Allison Krauss show. We had great seats on the fourth row and great company in Greg and Beth (who are recently engaged, congrats!). The show was pretty rockin'. Robert Plant truly is a legend and the harmonies with Allison Krauss were amazing. They played a lot of tunes from their new album and a few classic Zep songs like "Black Dog" and "The Battle of Evermore" and the Union Station song "Down to the River".
