David’s parents, brother, and I made the trip down to the ballpark for opening weekend. It was one of the best weekends I have had in a while (not that I have had bad weekends, this one was just REALLY fun). It was a new start to a new season and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us this year.
*Warning! I just had my wisdom teeth out so I have chubby cheeks in most of these pictures.
David’s brother and me in in the stands! Trying to figure out what to wear to a baseball game is harder than it seems. Rule #1-don’t wear his gear or he’ll get fined in Kangaroo Court (basically where the players fine each other $$ when they do something stupid, embarrassing, etc. Maybe I’ll post on that later- it’s quite entertaining). Rule #2- Don’t dress up too much where it looks like you are trying to hard. Rule #3- Still dress up some-what because you have to make your man proud so he can show you off to his teammates and they can later argue about who has the hotter girlfriend in the locker room. See? It’s like rocket science.

After the game he was signing autographs for little kids (tried to get a picture because it was so dang cute, but couldn’t pull my camera out fast enough. Gah! Next time.
Warming up before the game.
We helped David move in to his new apartment. 5 guys living in a 2 bed room apartment. Sounds cramped (and it is…), but it’s pretty typical to find this in minor league baseball. Low rent and they rarely spend time there because they are on the road so much, so it is what it is.
It was so hard saying bye to him because I know that it will be a month or two until I see him again. But this season will be different than last. I'm going to keep my head up, take what I can get, and enjoy every minute of the time God allows us to spend together.
