Baseball 2009

Well its the end of October which also means we are nearing the end of the baseball season. It was a pretty good season for me, the Cardinals won the National League Central Division, but then went and got swept in the first round by the dodgers, disappointing? Yes, but it could be worse, I could be fan of the Nationals.

What really made this season great was that I went to four games in three different cities and got to see St. Louis play twice. I didn't take Lucy to any of these games, I don't know that she's ready to go to a baseball game yet, mostly because I think she would get bored fast and I would end up entertaining her most the game instead of watching it. I did however get her shirts from the games. So here she is showing off her MLB pride.

The Kansas City Royals

The San Diego Padres

The Colorado Rockies

The Saint Louis Cardinals

I am also picking the Philadelphia Phillies to win the World Series in six games. I like to root for the National League, unless it's the cubs, but that shouldn't be a problem they haven't won a World Series title in over 100 years.

Lucy and I went up to Wyoming last weekend for my cousin Sadie's mission farewell. She's going to the same mission I did, Columbia, SC. What are the odds two people from the same family would go to the same mission, of course I was there about 10 years ago but how much could have changed in that time.

I think Lucy enjoyed this trip more than any other we've been on in the last 2 months. There was dirt, sticks, dogs, rivers everything a two year old could ask for. My cousin Abby was even nice enough to take Lucy on a long horse ride around the coral, not sure exactly how many laps they made. She even went out and lent a hand putting fence posts in.

We had a great time up there and it was really good to see my cousins, aunts and uncles again.
