This Evening.....

Thursday, April 8, 2010

"This Evening" was one of those evenings that turn out better than you could ever dream. After a day of running errands with my daughter Holly...& grandson Andrew, we returned home tired & feeling a bit cranky. It was almost dinnertime, with cooking being about the last thing I felt like doing. Holly suggested that the family put on their sneakers & take a walk over to the baseball fields in Old Poway, California where we live. It is a short walk....so we thought it the perfect opportunity to take a few baseballs, gloves & bats .....& have a little practice session!....So off we went!....My husband Ter, Holly, Andrew & I......

Now you have to understand that my interest in sports is small, if possibly non-existent!...So for me to commit to "pitching, hitting & catching" is simply unheard of!.....However, since the family is always looking for extra ways to fit in exercise.... & the fact that my grandson is showing signs of loving the game...& the other fact being that my husband is loving HAVING a grandson showing signs of loving the game....I decided that I too must get involved & have a good attitude.

Well, we all ended up having a "ball"!....We each took turns at all the baseball "positions".... ( is that what you call them?).....With my daughter making her dad proud!..... Who knew Holly had some talent when it comes to hitting a baseball?!

We then walked through the Old Poway Park, which happens to be something out of a Frank Capra movie, with a stream & large old trees & pathways connecting it all.....and at the far end is a darling old-fashioned restaurant called the "Hamburger Factory", where we enjoyed a delicious dinner!

And then the stroll home,...all happy, all content & all feeling very connected to the evening & to each other........I love you all.....(& possibly, maybe, could it be....baseball?)

enjoy every time that you have the opportunity to play ball with that little grandson. That was the favorite activity for our first born grandson when he would come to visit us and in just a few short weeks he will be graduating from high school and going eight hours away to college! I feel that we should still be in the front yard throwing the ball to one another!!!
