And, to top it all off, we got to meet Andruw Jones! He was there watching his son play Tball, the game before Joshua's. He was just sitting there. I freaked! I'm so glad I recognized him. After his son's game, all the kids went up to him and got his autograph. So I met him and shook his hand and got 2 autographed baseballs. It was a great night!
Zach also had a game that night. He did really well. He's learning to hit and field. His favorite part of the game is talking though. He'll talk to whoever is next to him whether he's in the field or on base. We think he might try soccer in the spring.

Then we headed to the field to watch the Mets warm up. We didn't get any fly balls, but it wasn't for lack of trying. You'd think they would throw some balls to my adorable children. But it appears as though the sexy girls win out.
The game was great! We won and very much enjoyed watching it. Afterward, for Fan Appreciation Weekend, there was a free Travis Tritt concert. Those of you who know me and my family know that I like country music....Steven does NOT. The kids couldn't really care less. They know who Garth Brooks is, but that's about it. But Steven knew that it would mean a lot to me, so we stayed. Travis Tritt was one of my dad's favorite country artists. "Here's a Quarter" was one of his favorite songs. So we stayed long enough to hear Travis sing that and "Anymore", which was one of my mom's favorites. Then we had to go. By then we had been at the stadium for about 8 hours.

Next week we are going to the Braves game. That is what Joshua wanted to do for his birthday. But we also wanted him to be able to spend some time with friends. So, we had a small party for him. He invited 3-4 friends who came over and played games and had cake and ice cream. It was a lot of fun.
It's just hard to believe that he is growing up so fast. He is using words that most 2nd graders don't even know. (Don't worry, not curse words!) He is so intelligent and so versed in baseball. After all these years, he is still immersed in baseball cards and want to be a major leaguer when he grows up. We are trying to help him achieve that dream as much as we can. We love him very much and consider ourselves blessed to be his parents!

Then it was Joshua's turn. He was very ready to get back out on the field. With fewer kids playing in the fall league, he's hoping to pitch, play first base, and even try catching!
