A Day at the Ball Park...

Let's GO NATS! If you know us, you know we love the Washington Nationals... like Big Time. We follow them religiously, and going to a game in the all you can eat, all you can drink Diamond Club seats has been on our bucket list. Imagine how excited we were when some of our neighbors offered us tickets for next to nothing... and a parking pass!!! We jumped- and convinced Nona and Papa to buy some off of Stub Hub to join us since they'd have a dd and a ride to the game. We had sooooo much fun, and the Nats won for us. WE let the kids eat to their hearts desire, they danced, and despite the 95 degree weather, we all had so much fun- Ellie was a doll and was so good the entire day. Brendan and my parents kept the drinks flowing, and let's just say it was nice to at least act like we have money- even if it was just for a day.

After the game, Third Day performed in concert and Adam LaRoche headed the Nats up with sharing their testimony. LaRoche, Span, Desmond, and Stammen all spoke about their relationship with God- and it was great for all of us to hear- And it was such a good message for our kids to hear from major leaguers. I am a huge Third Day fan- even having their c.d... so this was just icing on the cake.

I would say it was a perfect day... but the next morning when we went to wake the kids up for swim team, Addie had puked twice during the night- It was all over her bed, on Chris's arm, on herself, and even the floor. The kids were so zonked out neither of them had woken up during this... Let's just say you could see popcorn in the mess- and we're sure she had overeaten... Now, maybe the kids will understand more why we limit what they eat!:)
