Pitt Jam

Nicole and Sam are in Pittsburgh playing basketball, I'm in Minneapolis at a business event and Dylan and Linda are taking a cooking class in old town. Sam's team went 2-2 but didn't move on to games on Sunday so they are heading home so Nicole can run a 10 mile race in the morning.

More Basketball

The boys played a lot of basketball this week. Sam had five games with his AAU team last weekend, two varsity game spring games this week (he started both) a Team Pro Look (AAU) practice on Thursday and four more AAU games this weekend. Dylan had a JV game on Wednesday, practice with coach Ed today and a training session with coach Scott on Sunday. Basketball truly never stops.

Not Snow Flakes

Took a long walk while Sam was at practice and Dylan was watching Jenna's lacrosse game. The days are getting longer but we may get some snow on Saturday.

Night Wandering

Had a great dinner at Bucks Bar. The only place in town with chicken and waffles. They made some great fried chicken.

Glasgow Cathedral

We slept in a Sunday after a great Celtic game and a concert. Everyone was pretty tired so we just wandered Glasgow, ate and shopped. The picture is from the necropolis. The highest point on the city. Great vacation here in Scotland.

We got a ride from the hotel, a history lesson on Celtic FC, a trip to the pitch with the club director, access to the directors suite and seats in the directors section at mid field. Can't get much netter than that. The guy right past Dylan is Dave, a concert promoter in the UK and the guy that made this all work. Great fun and our hats off to uncle Adam for making a few calls to hook us up.

Heart of Midlothian

Dylan and I took a trip outside the center city a bit to visit Tynecastle, the home of the Midlothian football club and buy a jersey. Dylan knows a lot about this Scottish premier league club, we talked about on the walk to Murrayfield stadium, home of the wanderers and Scottish rugby. Fun afternoon. We all started the day at the Edinburgh dungeon. Cheesy as hell but fun for a slightly dreary day.
