It's been a bit since I last posted. We've been running around or not running around. Whatever the reason, this blog has taken a backseat, so here's our week in review:
1. Happy Birthday. Again.
The kids had Friday off due to the end of the first quarter. Because Mike's birthday fell on a Tuesday (a crummy day for a birthday) he took Friday off as well and we had a day to celebrate him. We ran a couple errands and returned and/or purchased new items for his birthday. Then in the afternoon he decided we should play ball.
We headed to the baseball diamond where we each got to hit some balls a few times. Mike informed us we each got five hits before we switched. I asked what the prize was for getting the most hits and he informed me it was just for fun. Bah.
I don't know if you can see her stance, but Maddie stood hands on hips for 90% of her field time. She wasn't overly enthused to run after the hits.
They did a great job and even took my garbage down on Friday morning when I completely forgot!
Good memories for both. Jake heads to a game in early December and I finally get to go in late December. Mike's the lucky guy attending all three, but he definitely deserves them!
