121/365 Four months of blogging!

There are very few people who come into your life who you know are truly your friends. Not just casual friends but the kind of friends who you know you can always count on. The kind of friends who you can completely be yourself around and not have to worry about being judged. The kind of friends who love your children and who your children love. Up until just a few short years ago I hadn't found that in a girlfriend. I have always had a hard time trusting girls as friends because they can be so shallow and will turn on you at the drop of a hat. I just didn't want to deal with that. That was until I met Bonnie and Gale. They are different. They are special. They are the kind of friends who I know I likely won't find again. I will make other friends but I don't think they will ever be friends like these. I wouldn't expect to be that lucky again.
Last night was so much fun. We laughed, we ate, we drank, we played was just what I needed. We stayed at a local bed and breakfast in their bunkhouse and had the best time. It was around 1:30 or 2 when we went to bed. It kind of felt like summer camp. It was wonderful!
(Ready to catch the ball on first base.)
(Caught it!)
Today we went to Jackson's final 2 baseball games. I am always a little happy but sad to see the season end. Jackson had a bad first game but the second game is was great. I was really proud of him. He had a pretty good season. It is fun to watch how they improve from season to season.
Ty eating at the game.  A pear and one of Gale's carrots.  He had 6 yesterday and around 4-5 today.  He loves her carrots.
After baseball we went out to eat and then Bonnie, Gale and I went shopping in downtown Albany. It was fun. We explored all of the little shops and pretty much spent the entire afternoon out shopping. I never would have guessed that you could spend that much time out shopping in our little town. It was fun and I met some really nice people.
Look what I did...a caterpillar.
(Fun with Gale.)
Sadly they had to head home tonight. Gale's daughter has a rodeo tomorrow so she had to get back for that. I am sad that they are gone but it was great while it lasted! I am blessed!
So long baseball season 2010!

Oh...and today marks 4 straight months of blogging!  Can't believe I made it this long!


  1. I really love the picture of him catching the baseball! Great shot!

  2. I can't believe how big he looks in the pictures. Good thing he caught that ball with his eyes closed :)
