School of Rock

Not just a Jack Black movie, folks. A real place where my cousin Walker goes to high school. He's the wicked awesome base player.

I've taken up nature photography as of late. In Edgebrook, wildlife abounds. This was a little strange though. The flamingos seemed a bit of a distance from their natural habitat (Menards) and didn't seem to be flustered when I approached with the camera. We think what we might have here are flamingos in heat (it's a humid 85 degrees).

Tried to make two waffles with enough batter for six. Twern't pretty.

I keep forgetting to use my blog shamelessly plug Godspell. Come and see!
Tix are $12 for adults and $6 for kids (12 and younger). And word to the wise, the church basement (aka community theater) is freezing. Wear something warmish.

Someone once told me that deer are very sophisticated and clever. All I know is that today when I came outside and this one spotted me, it ran to hide behind this tree.

You're Invited: Huls Family Vacation Slideshow

Favorites: Max back seat driving. The House from 'A Christmas Story' just sitting right there in Cleveland. A drive-in movie in one of the quaintest cutest towns I've ever driven though in my life (Wadsworth, OH). The highlights of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum (for me) were Jimi Hendrix's childhood drawings of football players, Jim Morrison's boy scout uniform and a telegram Otis Redding wrote his wife about how much he missed her (not long before his plane crashed) (I know, sad).

Cleveland Today

We decided to take a random road trip to Cleveland to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (which was pretty awesome). I forgot that cord that snags the photos from my camera and sticks them on my computer. But I had to tell you that I just got done eating a grilled cheese with peppers and peanut butter. They really have their sh*t together here.

It was great to have my brother Drew around this week! Even though I was very confused at Miller Park last night. Go Brewers! (I like the Brewers) er...go Cubs! (Because, well, you know...) Or (with almost all of the Cubs fans who abandoned their seats and were watching the tvs at the concession stands) Go Blackhawks! It was a queer sporting event. All I knew for sure was Go Chorizo!!!! (Came in dead last.)

Chocolate Cravings/Age calculator

The following was forwarded to me by my mom. And even though I would probably have picked a number higher than ten for # 1, # 2 remedied things. ;) Kinda fun!

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1760 ..
If you haven't, add 1759..

6... Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number

The first digit of this was your original number
(i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, they are!!!!!)

She & Him showed their pretty faces at Millennium Park tonight. Even though nobody could see their pretty faces, they sounded like heaven.

After reading the high praise and firm recommendation in Time Out Chicago (which we've recently become subscribers to-making us truly official Chicagoans) we drove all the way to Forrest Park to see The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. And what fun! It's a wild Texan 1970s musical dealing in love, singin', disappointment and butt shots. If you're around Chicago in June get yourself a general admission seat. (We ran into this Barbie at the ticket booth).

Old married couple


Eric: Man, what a nice day.
Jessie: It's a little chilly.

The other day~

Jessie: It's awesome outside!
Eric: It's so hot!

That about sums things up with us. But somewhere in there we balance out nicely.

I forgot to introduce you to Wilma. She's a fictional character but a largely autobiographical photo blogger fictional character. I made her with the help of Eric's mom on her Cricut machine. Scrapbooker cardmaker crafty friends, you WANT one of these machines. SO fun!!! The website describes this wonder as a "personal electronic cutter." But really. It's a way of life.
