Cardinals baseball

I had one of the best weekends. It was non stop but it was great!

Friday night I had some unexpected girl time with one of my best friends, Beth. Her husband and son were out of town and her daughter was at a youth function.

Hubs and R2 has plans to go and watch some Lamar Cardinals baseball, they had tickets for seats right behind home plate. R1 had a youth function, the same one Beth's daughter was going to.

So that left the two of us. We went out to eat dinner, did a little shopping and then went to the movies. We saw The Lucky One. It was just as good as the book.

Saturday I volunteered to work the concession stand at the ball park at 8:30AM. The good news was they really needed someone to work the admission gate. And since it was beautiful outside, I said I would do it. It was nice with the breeze blowing and I didn't mind since I really didn't want to smell like a french fry the rest of day. R1 had a game at 12 and R2 had a game at 1.

I got to watch R1 play for about thirty minutes and then we walked over to R2's field. When I left his game they were winning.

R2's game started and lets just say the boys showed up to play. They were all smashing the ball, running fast and letting nothing by them. R2 made a play at the plate for an out. It was awesome!
They won 12-1.

When his game was over we walked back to R1's field and finished watching his game. They were losing, 15-12. Apparently his team was just the opposite of R1's. They were having trouble hitting, fielding, making plays, and scoring runs. It just wasn't in the cards for them on Saturday.

Sunday we had tickets to watch more Lamar Cardinals baseball, we even had the same seats right behind home plate. Here's a picture I took while waiting for the game to start from our seats.

It was another great day of baseball. Lamar beat McNeese 6-0 and R1 got picked for a contest at the chance to win two tickets to see the Houston Astros. And he won! All he had to do was chug a bottle of water as fast as he could and beat the two other people competing against him. One of the competitors was R2 . So it looks like we will heading to Houston to watch more baseball.

It was a weekend full of Cardinals baseball, and that's just how I like it.
