what to appreciate

When the weather is nice, it really is hard not to appreciate the landscape up here...well, that and the baseball games, parks, and days out in the sunshine. The weekend started off with a major treat because one of my dearest, Julie, was up for a visit to see her sister so we did dinner Friday and met up with them too, at the Pirate's game on Saturday.

Mr. "Pudge" Rodriquez joined us for the evening.

I asked him if he rembered me back from his Texas Ranger days. Clearly not.

What's a summer baseball game without peanuts and a very classic Pirate's shirt?

You always are supposed to sneak away with your husband to check out the view, right?!

Now that I've drained you of baseball, I show you our favorite part of the weekend. Sunday we headed north a bit to a most beautiful park called, Hartwood Acres. I have never in all my days seen a park with so many beautiful trees, deer, and strollers with babies.

This makes it hard to not be happy/okay with where we are.

The deer probably didn't love my whistling at them to "just look" at the camera. I already feel sorry for Hudson.

and then, to come up on this guy in the middle of the park. We asked if we could rent out one of the rooms and they said no.

JR did get to enjoy a little football in the front yard.

Look who we brought with us?

The garden behind the property was filled with gardenias, roses, and some flowers I need to school myself on.

and lastly, kisses for momma and baby. Little does Hudson know we may do his 1st birthday out here :)
