Summer's Almost Over!

Sucks, doesn't it?

But I'm here to blog about the end-of-summer rite that is the 4th annual Brew At the Zoo.

I'm rallying early to get people signed up to join us this year on Saturday August 25th from 4-9pm. Tickets are $38 this year, a slight increase, but still well worth it IMO. In addition to the usual suspects (i.e. micro brews, great food, live music and animals) they are adding a "casino" to the festivities. I'm not sure what the details are since the website only says,
"Parrot Dice Casino and Raffles Baskets:
Do you feel lucky? Cold beer and hot dice are new for this year’s Brew. Gamble with your friends for the benefit of the Zoo. In addition, The Friends of the Zoo will be selling chances to win one of several fantasy raffle packages offered."

You can read about it here. Leave a comment and let us know if you're IN. You are, as always, welcome to stay at our house that evening. Ben will even make biscuits and gravy in the morning!

June Wrap

Despite the lack of blogs, June was a fairly busy month at the Schy house.
In addition to my previously mentioned "5 States in 1 Day Tour", we did do other things.

The weekend of the 16th was spent in Richmond with a 5K Saturday morning, hanging and cooking out by the pool all day and some competitive mini golf later that night. Sunday we took my dad out the breakfast for Father's Day and then went canoeing on the Whitewater River with some friends. Good times! (pics forthcoming)

Sunday the 24th was marked by our purchase of a 50" something, something, something TV (you'll have to ask Bean for the deets--I'm just a girl). (pics forthcoming)

The next weekend was our not-too-exciting trip to Fort Wayne. What was supposed to be a fun filled Friday and Saturday night excursion, actually only lasted until 3pm Saturday when we had explored everything the city had to offer. Thanks to all of you who allowed us to go knowing the city sucked ass.
