I'm kind of a free spirit. I think this is one of the few traits I get from my father. I remember when I was a kid, if I was with him, we were always on the go. I can barely remember ever just sitting watchin TV or anything. While I am not that extreme, I'll freely admit after a few days of being couped up at home, I get restless. I like to see people, see things and have adventures. It's safe to see this was not a good fit in what I will affectionately call "my former life."
But it is a GREAT fit with my current beau!!! One of the traits I love about him is his easy going nature, and the way he roles with the punches. So we were working in the yard this weekend, all four of us and just soaking in the beautiful weather that Iowa has so stubbornly been keeping from us for months! And on a complete whim we decided wouldn't it be lovely to drive to Kansas City to watch the Royals take on the Angels? My man is a baseball man, and me- well, I love sports, sunshine and stadium nachos, so sure, I can be a baseball girl! And his favorite team is the California (or LA, or Anaheim, or whatever they are called now) Angels.
(Remember last summer when we saw them in St. Louis- wow, what a great time we had! Probably one of the best trips I've ever been on!)
So, back to the story. The weather is lovely, Kansas City is less then 3 hours away from where we live, so we got online, bought 4 tickets, and just like that we were heading to a baseball game!
As per normal, my Grace has nothing but pure exuberence for EVERYTHING! But my sweet Millie had a great time too! She's a bit like her mom: she particularly liked the ballpark food!
And this one wants to BE her mom sometimes! (notice the hat and glasses)
And lastly, for nothing but pure laughs, this face abosultely cracks me up!!
I looks like a character from a show I used to love, Reno 911- he always made this exact same face and had big glasses! You probably don't see the resemblance unless you watch the show!
The name of my blog isn't "Living, laughing, loving" for nothing! No matter how you slice it- I'm a LUCKY girl!!!!
