Washington Nationals vs Colorado Rockies

The Nationals were running their 5 dollar ticket special for games 6/20-6/27 so we bought two tickets to Saturday’s game against the Rockies.  It was a giveaway day as well, we each got baseball totes.  Since they fold up into themselves, I could see it being useful since it packs down to almost nothing and is the nylon material so it would dry out quickly if it got wet.

One of the things I always think is so fun is the Presidents Race that they do during the fourth inning.  They used to have four presidents that raced George, Tom , Abe and Teddy.  This year they added a fifth, Bill.  It used to be a long standing joke that Teddy would never win, but when the Nats made the playoffs last year he finally did!  Recently the presidents have started standing near the entrance to take pictures as people come in so I got my picture with Teddy!

Five for Friday

Who else is excited for the weekend?  One of the girls I work with in Kansas has this picture at her desk and I laugh every time I see it.

Here are some highlights from the week and what I’m looking forward to this weekend:

1. Yesterday was the first game of my summer volleyball league!  I haven’t played since the fall season so I’m excited to be part of a team again.  Our team is called Sh’boom and it has a few people from the team I was on in the fall as well as some new people.  We played Ball Me Maybe yesterday.  All the games were close, but we ended up losing in game three.

2. The Nationals have their 5 dollar tickets going on for the next few days so we are heading to the game tomorrow!  I really need to get my Bryce Harper shirt.

3. I don’t know why, but for some reason orange soda is just tasting really good lately.  I’ve had it three times this week.

4. It is supposed to hit 90 here over the weekend.  Hot weather means lots of reading by the pool!

5. I’m going to get a little pampering too.  A pedicure for sure and maybe a manicure as well.  I’ve been keeping up with one of my goals for June and keeping them looking nice, if anything they need to be cut down a bit so they don’t get too long and break off.

Have you ever had a random craving for a few days?

What are your weekend plans?

Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles

The Boston Red Sox are in Baltimore for a series this weekend so Zac and I decided to head up there today to catch the game.  The drive is usually under an hour and the Baltimore-Washington Parkway leads right into downtown where all the stadiums are.  We arrived at Camden Yards around 1, bought our tickets at the box office and wandered over to Sliders to grab some lunch.

Since it was a last minute decision, we got some cheap seats up in the third deck.  Here is the view from our seats.

Little O's fanThe Sox started down 0-2 in the first inning.  They went up 3-2 in the fourth inning and picked up two more runs later in the game.  The Orioles almost had a comeback in the bottom of the 9th, but the Red Sox pulled off the win 5-4.
