Oh Those Summer Nights

On Sunday night, we were blessed by my sweet friend, Scooter, with FABULOUS tickets to the Ranger game. The weather was so amazing. We could not comment enough on how wonderful it felt outside! The seats were on the second row just down from the Ranger dugout. Chris started out the evening by warning me to not get too focused on talking because we were in the prime line-drive range. I waved him off and continued to gab with Em. Thankfully I was facing the plate when a laser shot came right in my direction. My eyes literally crossed as I saw it coming right for me! I was in the process of ducking when the guy in front of me knocked it down with his glove. We all sat up and looked at eat other, knowing I'd dodged a serious bullet! All we could do was laugh! It was a great chance to relax and just enjoy the game as it should be!
I tried to take one of those "hold-the-camera-out-in-front-of-you" pictures of Emily and me. I forgot that my camera was totally zoomed in and I obviously was not aiming at the right angle either. This is what I got...Brad's shirt.
Still not quite right...
We finally got it! We look pretty goofy, but the process was memorable!
Then last night, we went to the game with the Gentrys again, but this time we added the Durhams- double the fun! We spent a lot of time laughing and just enjoying another beautiful, mild Texas summer night (what's that?).
There was a really cute family in front of us that had just adopted a 5 year old girl from China 12 days before. I was so blessed by their story! What a better way to introduce her to our country!
The boys were thrilled to take a picture
