The Weekend Boys Dream Of

Braden's baseball team had a father/son weekend in Houston this past weekend. Two of our coaches are former big leaguers and have LOTS of connections. One coach used to live with Lance Berkman and is still friends with him. They were able to set it up so the boys (and giddy dads) were able to go down on the field during batting practice Saturday. They were the only ones in the stadium! Alot of the players from the Astros and the Cubs came over to meet the boys and sign autographs. We have SO many pictures and autographs! The boys came home with autographs on their gloves, hats, balls and baseball cards. I don't know who enjoyed it more, the boys or the dads!

Here are some pictures of the special day. Obviously, I wasn't there to take the pictures so it was up to Richard. He did a great job catching the moment, but could have used the flash a little more. Oh well, next time they'll just have to let me tag along to be the "photographer". We already have plans to hit another major league park next year!! I can assure you, the moms will get to go next year!!!

WOW!!!! I love the Cubs (sorry!) What an opportunity for the boys. Hubby did a great job. My man would have probably left the camera in the car....

It looks like a GREAT day! I would have hated to miss it, too. My 18 year old son took me to a Braves game for Mother's Day~ we like baseball, too!

I say next time you get to go, too!
