Rox vs. Braves, Family Time and A Special Delivery

It seems that the older I get, the busier I get.  My days are filling up with all kinds of things that I never imagined.  I like staying busy, but it does keep me from posting as much as I’d like.

Anyway, my cousin Robert came out from North Carolina to visit me a few weeks ago.  We went to the mountains, played in the batting cages and I took him to his first ever Major Leauge Baseball game!  He had been to several minor league games, but no big leauge games.  His team back home is the Durham Bulls.  Here we are hanging out.

7.09.09-5.jpgWe got tickets to see the Rockies take on the Atlanta Braves.  Here’s the view from our seats. 
7.09.09-1.jpgWe got to watch a beautiful sunset on a perfect night at the park. 
7.09.09-2.jpgDad was acting kind of weird during the game.  See he’s got Tommy Hanson and Brain McCann on his fantasy baseball team, so he was cheering for them, but we’re obviously all big Rockies fans…  I kept him in line and made sure he was rooting for the good guys.  I was nice enough to take a picture though for him.  Here’s Tommy Hanson pitching and Brian McCann catching. 
7.09.09-3.jpgIt was a great game, that went all the way to the end.  The Rockies were able to pull out a 1 run victory and I went home happy.  I even managed to get a ball for Robert.
7.09.09-4.jpgIn other news, Mom and Dad brought home a little sister for me.  Everybody meet Stacy!   

In case you couldn’t tell, she’s really cute.  She spends most of her free time eating, sleeping and going to the bathroom, so I’m trying to find her some hobbies that will give her something else to occupy her time.  I’ll let you know how it goes. 

I’ve been making out pretty good so far.  I got to sleep over at Gran C and Pappy’s for a few nights and Grandma Goodrich came to town for a visit.  I was completely spoiled.  It was great. 
8.1.09.jpg I think I’ve talked everyone into taking me to a baseball game tomorrow.  Mom, Dad, Stacy and I are going to head down to catch a Sky Sox game with Gran C and Pappy.  I can’t wait.  Hope to see you soon!

    Oh, she’s beautiful! You’re growing up quite a bit yourself! Congratulations to your whole family. I bet you’ll be a fantastic big bro.
    I’m glad you had so much fun. I’m finally getting to go to my first game at Coors Field on August 21!
