The Big 2-3


Saturday ushered in my 23rd year of life. To celebrate I got to get up at 5:30 am and spent the day in 100 degree weather watching softball–woo hoo! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰ LoL, Bob had spent the past several weeks practicing to be in the Coast Guard’s softball tournament which happened to fall on my birthday. At first I wasn’t too thrilled with the idea (those of you who know me know just how much I love the sport) but ended up really enjoying myself all day. They played four games that day the first starting at 8 am and the last ending around 6:30 pm. They won two and lost two but managed to win their last game by enough points to qualify to play the next day. Yesterday they won one but lost two and with double elimination were out. The tournament was very large, all the teams were made up of members of the Coast Guard and there were teams from Charleston, SC to Headquarters in Washington DC present.

Bob’s highlights of the tournament were an in-field home run the first game and scoring the winning point in the second to last game when they were all tied up ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d say he’d did pretty awesome considering he’d never played the sport before!

As for me I had a really fun birthday. I got several awesome gifts (thanks everyone ๐Ÿ™‚ ) and the Dicksons came to Bob’s 3rd and 4th games so I got to have a nice chat with Lara which is always awesome! It was very nice to get out of the house and fun to watch Bob play. I was the only wife to come to all the games and the only one at all to come watch the team play their first game thus I was dubbed “a trooper” by several of the guys on the team ๐Ÿ™‚
Amber really was a trooper because we got her up so early and she barely got any naps all day but remained a happy baby for the most part ๐Ÿ™‚ She liked to get her little toes in the grass and rub her feet back and forth, lol.

After the games and showers to wash the sticky humidity off we went to Outback for a late b*day dinner which was delicious as always. All in all it was a great way to spend a birthday!

  3. sounded like it turned out to be a great b-day!! ๐Ÿ™‚
    my poor girls love being outside and playing in the grass, but are allergic and get hives ๐Ÿ™ they sure didn’t enjoy the grass when they were little, if they fell over, they’d lay there like a stuck bug and fuss!!! lol ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Little girl “4th’ outfits are so much cuter than little boys. Actually ALL little girl clothes are cuter than little boys. It helps when the little girls wearing the cute clothes are absolutely beautiful!

  5. How can you love football so much, but not be excited about softball…I’m definitely opposite there! I enjoy watching baseball/softball, but football is not my favorite. That’s what makes the world go round, huh?

  6. Hooray for the exciting plays that Bob made! I bet it just made his day…along with you being there rooting for him!
