Sunday Scratches is where I share the little stuff that has happened throughout the week. In hockey, “scratches” are people who are on the roster but do not play in the game. On the blog, “scratches” are the things that have happened to me throughout the week that aren’t necessarily big enough to be an entire post.

Hello and welcome to the next edition of Sunday Scratches!
It’s been a busy (but fun) week, so let’s get started!
On Monday, Stanley continued his agility classes at Whiskers University. He really liked it, but he got yelled at a few times by the instructor… whoops!
Tuesday evening, Sean and I went to see Avengers in IMAX: 3D. We went all out with concessions, too, because we never go to movies any more (my college self cringes at this). It was a ton of fun!
On Wednesday, the first summer season with Grand Rapids Sport and Social started! We’re playing Wednesday night kickball, and our team is On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink. Our shirts are pink. Obviously. And we won! It was a tied game until Sean brought in the final run to bring us up 5-4. Oh, and my batting (kicking?) average is currently 1000 because I got on base all three times!
Thursday was super exciting. Through GRSSC, we were invited to the VIP Launch Party of the Kentwood location of Dave & Buster’s. It’s the first one on the west side of Michigan, and only the third in the state, so I’d never been before! We got free drinks, free food, and free games! We didn’t expect to stay the whole three hours, but we did! We’ll most likely be going back once it opens to the public on Monday.
We finally had a night off on Friday, so we spent it doing boring adult stuff, like cleaning, grocery shopping, and meal planning for next week.
Sean’s mom came into town for the Heritage Hill Tour yesterday morning, so it was a busy day! She arrived at about 10:30 a.m., and then we picked up my dad and got to the first house by 11:45. We got lunch at Founders (delicious) and saw almost all of the buildings in one day. We might go back for the last two today; it just depends on how rainy it gets.
Once we were done with the tour by 5, we went back and hung out at my parents’ house. We decided to drive to Lake Michigan (about 45 minutes) to have a picnic dinner at the beach. On the way out there, though, we saw a billboard for Lemon Creek Winery, looked it up on my phone, and saw the wine tasting room was open and on the way! So naturally we stopped.
We walked around the beach for a while after dinner, and then stopped at Old Boys’ Brewhouse in Spring Lake, just outside of Grand Haven.
