A little bit of baseball and bloggyness

I'm back. I just wanted to let the three readers I have know I have returned to the bloggy world.

We were in Dallas last week for R1's World Series.

And are you ready for this...drum roll please.....

WE CAME IN SECOND PLACE!!! Not to bad. The boys played great too.

We really had a chance to win the entire tournament but the directors finally had to cancel it due to all of the rain we had. On Friday night the Dallas area received 6.5 inches of rain in a very short amount of time.

When we went to the fields to check the bases were under water. The hosting park worked on the fields, all eleven of them, to get them ready but they just couldn't do it.

And I have to say after a week in a hotel I was ready to come home.

The kids did have some great times. They went to a Texas Rangers game, swam, went to Incredible Pizza, rode go-carts, and ate at a place called Steak N Shake, which by the was fabulous!

At closing ceremonies, the coaches told the boys how proud they were of them and how much they had all improved over the last nine months.

And while I am excited about the break, I'm a little sad. The end of baseball always makes me feel sad. You get close to the people you are playing with. You are with them 3-4 times a week and all weekend. Then nothing. It makes me feel empty.

But a great thing I got to do in Dallas was meet up with Antique Mommy and her son.

I had emailed her a few months back and we decided to make some plans as the time drew closer.

She is so real and honest. She was so interesting and funny. She has some fantastic ideas too. She is just like she in her blog. I'm so glad I had the chance to meet her. And her son, just as sweet as he can be. He and R2 had fun playing in the play ground at Chick-fil-a.

Oh and she had on the cutest shirt and pink sandals! Thanks AM for meeting me. I had a great time.

And what kind of post would this be if I didn't put up some pictures of the World Series?

Here you go...Oh and GO STORM!!
