Karen had a great time celebrating her ½ birthday today at the Huntsville Stars’ baseball game. She didn’t know that myself and others had put together a list of wonderful surprises. Matthew arranged for Karen to be the fan of the day so Karen and Katie Beth could ride into the game with Homer, the team mascot.
Many of Karen’s friend were hiding out in a skybox. Karen only had to look up to see them all pressed against the glass watching.
After riding into the game with Homer, we keep Karen on the field and then she learned that she was throwing out the first pitch of the game.
We then went up to the skybox to take Allison Tofflemire’s drink up to Steve Tofflemire. Allison told Karen that Steve and her parents were up there because it was so hot. It was over 90° degrees.

When we arrived at the skybox, everyone was already there waiting. Karen was surprised at seeing so many faces greet her. Janice Houston and Steve Tanner with their daughter Clair, Ann And Jay Kissell, Jeff Thornburg, my parents, Allison and Steve Tofflemire, Larry and Margaret Bennett, Larry Veeder, Meg Leach, Elizabeth and Bob Riggle were there. More dropped in throughout the evening.
We all had a great time and the food from Scott Tolmach of Sodexo was just wonderful.
