Play ball!

For those of you out-of-towners, Northwest Arkansas recently acquired a minor league baseball team – The Northwest Arkansas Naturals (formerly the Wichita Wranglers) – a AA farm team for the Kansas City Royals. We play in the same league as San Antonio’s team – The San Antonio Missions!

Anyway. They played their first game here in early April – and it has quickly become THE thing to do on the weekends. So of course, we had to go. We watched them beat the Tulsa Drillers Saturday night with friends Nicholas and Angela.

It was a little colder than I anticipated, and Bump is used to going to bed around 9 — so we skipped out during the 8th inning — but it was a lot of fun. I’m sure we’ll be back – especially when it warms up a little.

Instead of going home, we decided to drop by the soiree taking place at Keith’s house.

Got to see a few folks we don’t see that often – and visit “my” dog, Ace!

Jeff even managed to snap a picture of the elusive Toby. This picture makes me laugh – he looks absolutely terrified. Toby is Keith and Don’s pomeranian – who is scared to death of people and spends most of his time and energy running away from people trying to pet him… but he’s cute.

 

 

 

 

Good weekend – cleaned house on Sunday – getting ready for visitors this weekend. Mom and Dad are coming up – should be fun! We are NEARLY under 30 days to go until Baby Day!

    Yay! I was able to check your xanga!!  :)

    Yes- I do basically live under a rock… but I love it!  Actually- I did hear about the earthquake in China, does that earn me points??

    First off, Ace is HUGE!  He’s a grown-up now… *sniff*

    And second- that crap about the plastic bottles is a bunch of crap.  It’s just someone’s idea for us crazy americans to use and waste even more plastic that we don’t need to!  In my opinion, everyone should purchase a nalgene bottle & fill it up daily. (also wash it often)  That bottled crap is just from the tap anyway… 

    Love you!
