I feel like the title to this post is what my life has been like the last couple of weeks. A lot of ups and downs. I will elaborate on that more in another post.
But this post is a happy one. Crazy Days is actually in downtown Buffalo. It's in mid-July and totally different than Buffalo Days that happens at the end of June. It's kind of like a sidewalk sale. One of the streets downtown is closed off and all the shops bring their stuff out on the road or sidewalk. If they aren't out on the road or sidewalk, they usually still have some sort of sale. It's fun perusing because everyone has great sales, along with bake sales and junk food.
This year, Kally and Drew, were visiting us for the weekend. They live in Florida with their Mom, Kari, who is Wayne's 2nd cousin (His mom's 1st cousin). They have been up here a couple of months visiting during summer vacation and so we had them spend the weekend with us.

I picked them up Friday evening after work. We had KFC for dinner, went to Walmart and Target to look at new TV's for our bedroom and then I made a large cookie with ice cream that Kally I tackled! I was pretty tired and so we went to bed around 11pm.

I had to work at the gym that morning from 9-12. Kally came with me. It was super slow, so we ended up only being there from 9-11. We then went home and Drew was still sleeping. He didn't go to work with Wayne. Wayne said he couldn't wake him up. That's a teenage boy for ya.
Shortly after we got home, we decided to head downtown to Crazy days. Green Grandma came with. We walked around and looked at clothes, jewelry and other knick knacks. We had lunch at BJ's Deli. I had a turkey sandwich that was AWESOME! Kally and I shared this Heath Bar cake for desert:
After a few hours downtown and visiting Barbara in the nursing home, we went home. There were a couple different storms that hit our area that evening/night which caused us all to head downstairs (2 different times). It was crazy with all of us downstairs (Green Grandma, Sandy, Wayne, Me, Drew & Kally) with the (10) dogs watching the storm pass us by.
We ended up watching Hot Tub Time Machine (which I thought was just OK) and then we headed to bed as once again I was super tired. I know I am lame and go to bed super early.

After a yummy brunch of swedish pancakes and sausage, we went for a boat ride, played video games, watched tv movies, ordered pizza and just hung out until it was time for them to leave. That's always a sad time now that they live in Florida, we don't see them very often. I'm hoping to see them at least one more time before they go back to Florida on August 5th.

She had just woken up from a nap. LOL. I love you Kally and Drew!!
