If you build it we will come

This weekend Valdo and I decided to head to my moms for the weekend. It was gorgeous! 70's all weekend! Loved it! We had the offical fun party for my Aunt and Uncle's 40th this weekend. This one everyone was there. It was awesome. My aunt and Uncle hosted it at their house so we could see the finished baseball field. I was here last year and they were still working on it and cutting down tree's for it! Finished, it is amazing!

Bleachers for fans and stadium for announcers. It's all so perfect! Now he's working on a few other things for the field so by the time he host's my 30th B-day here in June it will even more amazing.

Second time I made it to base!

It was such a good day! A really good day! I can't remember playing ball with my whole extended family since i was a tot at my Grandma's house. It was so special to me to have this day! To be able to sit and chat all evening with family. I had two of my uncle's laughing so hard I thought they'd fall over. I learned that my uncle Jon likes Donkey's as much as I do. I heard stories of the old days from my Grandma about how the first place her and my grandpa lived was a Chicken Coop all cleaned up with the two oldest kids. Then they built the house she's in now and my grandma has been there ever since. I heard funny stories my uncles like to tell about each other after a few beers. On a side not I learned I could move 200 pounds 5 inches. (only girl of the night to do it). It was a really good day. I am super stoked to have my 30th there playing baseball all night, talking and having a good time with my family.
