One more week until our nest is officially empty. We picked up Computer Dude and drove to Toronto to see a Blue Jays game as our last family outing for awhile. Engineering Dad as usual was in denial about the time it takes to actually get into the city (he assumes he can drive the speed limit all the way to the stadium). Also the Blue Jays were playing the Red Sox so there were more fans than usual. By the time we found a parking space and got to the stadium 2 1/2 innings had already gone by. It was all good in the end though because it was a scorching hot day and even the baseball fans among us (that would be everyone but me) had enough by the end of the day. Computer Dude rarely sees the light of day on purpose so he wore jeans and was even hotter than the rest of us. The Jays won and a good time was had by all. On Friday Computer Dude comes home for the weekend as he's between houses and babysits the dogs while we drive Engineering Guy the five hours to his college and drop him off.
