baseball & fireworks

Monday, July 6, 2009

I think we had a pretty good 4th of July. At least as good as it could be. I had to work Friday, Saturday and Sunday. And of course, Mike had all three of those days off. I just want a day just the two of use. I think I'm turning into the "weekend" girl at work. This weekend will be my 3rd straight weekend working the WHOLE weekend. I'm pretty tired of it. I understand I can't have every weekend off, but one Saturday off every other week would be nice. Enough ranting.....

We started this holiday off by going to a baseball game. We have a local prospect team, the Hannibal Cavemen. They are college players just trying to get seen. They come from all over the country, but we have like 4 or 5 guys from Valparaiso. It was an alright game, not very intense though. We went with Mike's aunt and uncle and had a good time.

The Cavemen up to bat!

I so wanted to get a picture of Mike and I in front of the field, and thought it was rude to do during the game, so I waited. Well, right after the game, they shut all the lights off for fireworks and then never turned them back on! So we will have to get that photo next time.

Fireworks after the baseball game!

Like the rest of the Midwest, it rained here on the 4th. I didn't really care because I was at work during the day. It stopped once I was out of work and the temperature went down and it was a nice night outside. We went to a beer garden and listened to a band. They were really good; they did some original stuff, but mostly 90s rock covers. Since it rained all day, we had very low clouds and/or fog during the fireworks. I can't really remember ever seeing fireworks like that, so it was kind of neat.

It is a poor choice in a name. Maybe it's for the Mark Twain Cave that's here, but still!
