Softball Mothers Day
Monday, May 14, 2012
Another weekend gone by and actually it was a pretty enjoyable one. Those of you who read my last blog may recall that I got 3 new books that I was waiting for.....I read them all! I can't help myself! Once I start a really good book I can't put it down!
Besides reading til my eyes crossed, I had a very nice Sunday with my mom. We went to my niece's softball games. Mom never misses a game if she doesn't have to - so to the park I went! I have 4 nieces and 3 are relatively the same age and play on the same team, plus my two brothers coach the team. This is a pic from a previous tournament but you will see my brothers Jay on the left and Buzz in the back. Buzz's daughter Brianna is standing right in front of him in the sunglasses.
The first game I took my springer Eliot. We sat chatting with Mom while our girls whooped up on the other team 25-7. Then since Eliot was kind of a stinker (fidgeting the whole time!) and I had 3 hours til the next game, I went and had lunch and switched dogs. Luke, my red merle aussie went to the next game. He was very happy to see grandma since he doesn't see her that often. Unfortunately my niece's team was the whoop-ee's instead of the whoop-ers this time. We lost 26-1. (ouch!) All in all, a nice afternoon with my canine kids and my mom sitting in the sun and just enjoying life.
Here we have the team with this weekends 3rd place trophy! Jay's daughter Rylee is the brunette holding the trophy and Brianna is in the back row 2nd from left.
Here are Rylee, Brianna and their friend Melina in the middle.
The weigh in this week is not pretty. And also not unexpected. I'm trying to get myself together....it's just kind of a back and forth thing right now that I can't really wrap my head around. I'll get it eventually I know.
Week 3: 263.6
this week: 267.4
I love this sunshine and hope it is here to stay for a while!
