And I can't think of many feelings that compare to rounding third knowing that all your teammates are waiting for you at home plate because you
just won the ball game..
I've never in all my life experienced that feeling, but I've seen it happen several times....
So..... Thank you Brandon for inviting me and most of all for reminding me that a good baseball game is just DARN good no matter if your son is playing or not.
How incredibly wonderful would it be to play Varsity ball with your brother who just won the game... Now that's what I call a good night at the ballpark..
May we all have a moment in our lives where we get to experience the THRILL of Victory...

They are always willing to put their arms, legs, and bodies in some of the most uncomfortable positions for the sake of "the shot". Everyone wants a day when they look unbelievably awesome... And Senior PICTURES should be one of those days....
I still have such wonderful friends, and people I will always cherish in good ole' WEST TEXAS..

As they drove away.... I must say I did have a little lump in my throat.
I still can not believe my little girl is old enough to grow up.
Her brother informed me that there was nothing I could do about it so I should just smile and get over it... I must say that's pretty good advice coming from a 19 year old.

He looks at everything "as an adventure to be conquered." And let me tell you.... he does try and conquer it all. haha Including.... the adventure of the EASTER EGG. My mom and step dad came down for Easter on Sunday afternoon. None of us were really too sure if Brady would understand about finding the eggs or even if he'd care enough to want to. He often has an agenda all his own and doesn't like to be bothered...
The Egg HUNT was all it was supposed to be.. He had the best, amazingly adventuresome time. We all laughed as we watched him run from place to place throwing (literally) his eggs in the basket on his way to the next one. He didn't even care that nothing was in his eggs.. It was the thrill of the chase.. Now if that's not a simple pleasure then I can't think of much any cheaper.
AND....Even when the game is over... There is always a way to find some joy...
May we all have someone to love, fill our lives with adventure, and hopefully bring M&M's.

May we all have a day where we just
and have someone there to get a picture to prove it.

The center-piece was pretty cute.
But......... my cake was I must say another story. haha
A cake decorator I am not....
It was kind of supposed to be a cowboy hat..
But sort of turned out to be a chocolate blob.. hee hee
It tasted good though and really....... no one cared..
(or realized what it was really supposed to be)
Brady thought they were all singing to him..
He looked at Papa as if to say
(thanks for coming to MY party).....
Now that just makes most anyone smile....
We should all throw more parties, have more family and friends over, and enjoy chocolate blobs. ha

Now tomorrow I've got a list of a zillion, jillion little other things I've got to get done. But both girls will be here tomorrow afternoon (Brenae and Brook) so they can play with Brady and I can get so much more done. He is so helpful I must say... That sewing machine pedal was just too much fun to resist.... and the paint... well even I can't resist that. ha May we all get something finished that we've been putting off for a while, and have a fun time doing it too...
