I can’t believe we are already on our 4th day of vacation. Time flies when you’re having fun and FUN we are having! Real quick- speaking of time flying- we were riding in the golf cart on the way home from the pool yesterday and Mike was telling the boys how he wanted them to be little again. I said, “I know, I can’t even remember Braeden as a baby.” Braeden said, “why because I was so cute?”
Tuesday we went to the pool in the morning and then came back and got ready to head to Tampa to see the PHILLIES play Tampa Bay! Monday night Mike was browsing on the Phillies website to see where they were in the standings when he happened to glance at who they were playing next- TAMAPA! My parents live about 2 hours from Tampa, so Mike and I started searching for tickets. We found some tickets on e-bay for great seats on the visiting team side for a price less than face value. We couldn’t pass up the chance to see our favorite team play the same team they BEAT in the World Series 8 months ago (and it was the first time they would go head to head since). We left Mikey behind with my parents and got to the stadium almost 2 hours before the game. We watched the Phillies practice and saw some of the players really close up. Braeden was able to see his favorite baseball player Chase Utley (2nd baseman for the Phillies) hit a home run. It was SO MUCH FUN! There were a lot of Phillies fans sitting around us and we won 10-1! Worth every penny. Mikey actually did really well with my parents, only crying for a few minutes at bed time.

Chase Utley, look how close he was to us-

So, I think I have decided to finally come to terms with the fact that my life is consumed with BOYS! I have at least another 16 years before both kids are off to college, so I may as well start enjoying the things THEY love. I watched the first Transformers movie the other day and actually LOVED it. Braeden and Mike have been waiting anxiously to see the sequel since seeing the first, 2 summers ago. It came out yesterday and we took Braeden to see it. It was JUST as good as the first.

Not much going on today! Just relaxing. I went to bed with Mikey last night at 7:30
