Toledo Pictures

Last weekend we took a trip up to Toledo, Ohio (technically Sylvania) for the Jamie Farr LPGA Tournament. Stacy has played in the Jamie Farr for 4 years now. The first & second year Tony and I traveled up to Ohio with my family to watch her play and visit all my Dad's family who still live there. We missed last year because my friend Kristina was getting married the same weekend, but we were back again this year. This tournament has turned into a Lewis family reunion every year. All my aunts, uncles, and cousins come out to the tournament each day to cheer for Stacy and hang out with everyone. A few years ago, the cousins decided we wanted to make matching shirts to wear for the final round because there are so many of us, we thought Stacy would get a kick out of it (or be embarrassed, either way we didn't care). So we made the first Lew Crew shirts using iron on letters from the craft store. Well, the Lew Crew shirts have evolved quite a bit since then, and now we have some professionally done shirts complete with Stacy's website on the back! We had 2 colors this year which we all coordinated to wear blue the first day and green the second day. Sadly, Stacy didn't play as well as she wanted, and she barely missed the cut and didn't play on the weekend. So we didn't get to wear the shirts again. That's the story behind the Lew Crew shirts in the picture below.

Another part of our visit is to have family dinners. Friday night we ate at Gary & Gigi's...tons of great food, including a cookie cake for Stacy, and my grandparents came too. Since it was the night before the 4th we watched the Sylvania fireworks, played volleyball, corn hole, and did a few of our own fireworks. Stacy's friend from college, Lucy, came up and was there too, as well as Stacy's caddy, Travis, and his girlfriend, Jenny. Saturday night, the 4th, we had dinner at my other aunt & uncle, Kathy and Jim's, house. We had more corn hole games, a tournament in fact, more awesome food, cookie cake, and malt cake. We had a malt cake for my grandma's 80th bday coming up this year and a cookie cake for Tony and my 1 year anniversary.

We had such a great time catching up with everyone and hanging out with my family last weekend! Here are some pictures from the weekend.
