[Weekender] The One With... Baseball, Baseball & More Baseball, Birthday Parties and Cars Land Too!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately... it's taken me almost the entire week to recover from the weekend.  Yes, I am a wimp.

On Saturday, we left the house at 8 AM and didn't return until 10:30 PM.  It was a day devoted to baseball-- closing ceremonies for Smarty Pant's league, his All Star game, and then his team's end of season party.  And if that wasn't enough, we capped off the day with a late dinner for Papa Vee's birthday.  By the end, we had kids sleeping at a restaurant.  Pure exhaustion.  I don't know how parents do it with multiple busy kids... I'm barely keeping up with just one in sports.

Smarty Pant's All Star game... and me playing with Photoshop :)

Hanging out at the game with my ever present Toms.  These crochets are the most comfortable yet.  The only downside is the lace "tan" action that's happening on my feet.  Not pretty!

On Sunday morning we went to a birthday party, then headed out to Anaheim. One of our friends works for Disney and asked if we'd like to preview the new Cars Land at Disney's California Adventure.  Of course we said YES!  We are very, very, very lucky!  Lucky that he actually got tickets and lucky that he thought of us.  Did I mention lucky? We had an amazing time.  The boys were awed by everything. Wish I could say more but...

So we weren't allowed to take photos, but I was able to dig up a few night time shots via the Disney website-

The photos don't even do it justice. The backdrops are pretty stunning, it's like stepping into the movie.  The boys were amazed. Smarty Pants even asked how they made the sky look so real... he he!  In true Disney fashion, the level of detail blows you away. It's a must to see the neons turn on in the evening. And the Radiator Springs Racers ride.... awesome! I think that's about all I can say without getting in trouble.  :)

So I'm getting back into the swing of things.  I'm working on a fun project and will share it next week!
