This weekend could be summed up with the word "Sports"! We started Friday night at Dalton's baseball game. Joel pitched for part of the game in his khakis and loafers. That is SO Joel!
Saturday morning brought the girls' soccer game. Ava had lost another tooth at school on Friday so I had to get a picture of her with 3 teeth on the top missing.
Then it was game time! We were playing one of the hardest teams in the league so we really wanted to win! The girls played so hard but we ended up losing the game 3-2. Elia scored one goal! Here is a picture of Elia with that determined look on her face.
I was so proud of how Ava played. Some of the girls on the other team were twice her size but that did not stop little Ava. She is small but mighty!
Here are both girls going after the ball:
And here is Elia after she scored her goal:
We decided to do something different Saturday night so we took the girls to a Grizzlies game. We started off on Beale Street.
The girls got to see the Beale Street Flippers.
Then we ate dinner at Miss Polly's.
Miss Polly's is known for their chicken and waffles. (I stuck to just the waffle part of dinner.)
Ava is my little carnivore who does not let the fact that chicken came from a live animal bother her one bit.
Then it was on to the Grizzlies game! The girls were so excited!
They had to get cotton candy and popcorn of course!
They also brought along their allowance to spend in the gift shop. Ava ended up with a stuffed Grizzlies bear, and Elia bought a Grizzlies basketball.
During the fourth quarter of the game, you could find Elia shouting and dancing in her seat.
And here is how you would find Ava at this point in the game:
Ava was fully passed out by the time we made it home! The Grizzlies won! Go Grizz!
We drove to Whiteville on Sunday afternoon to surprise Mindy on her 60th birthday. The reason we were in Whiteville was because Mindy was skydiving for her 60th birthday so we all met there to watch the big jump!
David Stalls was there with Sunny, and David decided to take the plunge as well. You gotta love the hearse they have parked out front!
Here is David coming in:
Here is David and Sunny after he safely landed.
After David's jump we had to wait a while because it started to rain. Once the rain passed through, it was Mindy's turn!
And her happy friends and family with Mindy who made it safely to the ground! Happy 60th Birthday Mindy!
The funniest thing from the whole day was the videographer who videotaped people's jumps. He is not only a sky dive trainer and jumper, but he is also an ER doctor and the town coroner. HA! I couldn't resist taking a picture of what was printed on his sleeve!
Brandy and I have made it our goal to sky dive on our 40th birthday! Look out!
