I needed a day at a ballpark this week. 

Hotdogs.  Yankees.  Kids cheering.  Phil smiling. 
Not sure if it gets much better than that.

Sometimes a week will just knock the wind out of you.  Today was a much needed break from the computer, emails, doctor appointments, phone calls, and practices.  I've been thinking all week that I just want to turn everything off.  Pack up the fam. Maybe move to Montana.  And live quietly and un-complicatedly.  (yeah, that's probably not a word-- but it did not come up wrong in spell check:).

Instead, we hung out in Baltimore today.  We took the kids to their first baseball game.  And.  Can I just say, my kids have no problem with being loud, cheering with all their might, and-- who knew!- trash talking:).  See photo above with Oriole's hat.

I love my family.
I love that they refresh my spirit and heart.  

And I love the Yankees, too.  
Thanks, guys, for making my sons first game a blow-out win.
You rock.

  4. There´s just nothing like spending a great day together as a family, no matter what you´re doing, if it´s a game or a trip to a musuam, as long as it´s something we all enjoy and can be together on, and I can see, that you guys had a really great time, and that´s what it´s all about and nothing else. So great to see these happy smiling faces, they just make me smile too, that´s for sure, and then the good ring has started, haven´t it? ha ha ha.

    You are all so beautiful hun, I love your smiles and these pics...it looks like you've had a very good time at the game, your photos always get peace and enthusiasm across to me!

  20. Your smile on that top photo is so pretty! It made me smile back all the way from here while on my laptop in California; I'm take a break from my work to stay connected someway with the crafting world; I so much long to be in again. I'm a F/T student going into nursing and a mommy and a wife; so the little time I do have left is ususally cooking and cleaning. Anyway thanks for your awesome little blog it's a great way for me to fill my crafting void. Have a wonderful day ~ Angela
