Day 190

What a great day today was!! My husband took us to a White Sox game. Those are always so much fun. Bought some box tickets behind the dugout, so we were out of the sun since it was 86-90 degrees today! He gave the kids some money to spend, and their eyes were darting back and forth from the cotton candy man to the Italian ice scoopers. 

Little one (middle tan glove to the very right of the player closest to the dugout) tried desperately to be thrown a ball from the players as they came back to the dugout, but never quite got in that perfect place. It's okay, someday she'll catch one, or be a lucky recipient! 

Our White Sox played the Twins, they were at a 8 or 9 game loss with them, and today... OH YEAH! We won! It didn't come easily as catcher Ramon Castro fractured his hand as pitcher Mark Buehrle (pronounced burly) threw a fastball and it hit his unprotected hand.

This photo shows the excitement of "what if" as players (left to right) Beckham, Konerko, and Buehrle come running in. Konerko was the one that threw the ball each time to the crowd. He and Buehrle are a big deal in our family as my hubby caught one of his home run balls a couple years ago and got it signed, and Buehrle caught the ball on the day hubby actually got to throw out the first pitch at the game! Yeah, we have a story for everything it seems..
