Finally after awful traffic in Birmingham, we have made it home. Well actually we made it home last night at about 7:00. Today I have done absolutely nothing. I hate it when you go on "vacation" and then you are so exhausted after you get home, that you need another vacation. Its also really hard to go on "vacation" when you are at a softball tournament. I know, I know, I have heard you all say it, "but your at the beach". Now I love softball, and I love the beach, so you think it would be a match made in heaven. Well, let me tell you its not all its cracked up to be.
Softball games cut into your beach time. Its like torture sometimes. You may be lucky and get your first games done and out of the way and then get a couple of days off, or you might have them spread sporadically through out the week. We were the winner of option number two. So we never did get many days off with out a game. To be exact we had two days off with out games. Sunday before the tournament started and then Friday after we were put out of the tournament. So it is a lot of rushing around trying to fit in the fun into short time frames.
You see I am not complaining. I really had a good time. I loved hanging out with all my friends from the ball team. The girls had a great time hanging out with each other. I just wish I had more beach time. My favorite thing is going to the beach and sitting at the edge of the water in my chair and just sitting. I did not get enough of that. I can not wait to go back when I don't have a tournament. Out of the last 5 beach trips, only one has not involved a softball tournament. So I am already in the process of planning another one. :)
Ok on to other matters. I want you to know I love you all and I thank you all for staying with me in my sporadic vacation post. I did not get a lot of opportunity to read many of your post. I am actually a bit overwhelmed in my reader at the moment. I have about 418 post that I have not read, and I don't think I will be able to get to them. So I am going to hit the mark as read button and start over. Please forgive me if I don't comment on a post, I am trying to get back into the swing of things.
Guess What???? We have new residents at our house! Let me introduce you to some new little friends we brought back.
This is slush....don't ask Little Logan named him
This is Crush and Squirt....
Syd named them
When we got back we had a new baby here. We had been waiting for this one and I said it would get here while we were gone and sure enough here she is......
We don't have a name for her yet. Little Logan is supposed to name her, but has not come up with anything yet. So what do y'all think are some good names for her? We already have, Mylie, Rose (which is her mama), Ellie Mae, and Fatty. Then the donkeys are Reloy, Jenny, Charlie, Lilly, and Star. Then there is flop the duck. So go ahead and throw out some names. I don't know if any of your names will be picked, but I thought it would be neat to hear what you come up with.
