20190517 - Up late and L had taken J to school and G is off to school, L at work and D still in bed. I am taking the day off today so we can drive to Pigeon Forge. I finished syncing and updating the phone as I got things ready to head out. I got D up, had a little 'talk' with him about getting his butt out and finding a job as he drove me to pick up the car. I then ran and got G out of school. Home and L was there. We packed up the car and got on the road to Pigeon Forge. We avoided some bad traffic and stopped once for lunch and to gas up. Then the rest of the way, checking in to the hotel adn meeting the team for dinner. Most of the dads by this point had consumed way too much and it was a bit out of control... We finished dinner and headed back to the hotel and settled in for the night. I was exhausted from the drive.


20160516  Up in the am and J opened the few presets we got him. I then dropped him off at school and headed in to the new office for the morning. There was an issue with our DataMiner that was unexpected and took the whole morning... In the afternoon I ran back over to the big office to get some things done before I headed out for a long weekend of driving and baseball. Home and got the rest of the fam motivated and we headed out for J's bday dinner at the Texas Roadhouse. J ordered a 23oz Tbone couldn't eat it all, and had to sit on a saddle and had the whole place sing to him! After dinner we Headed home and relaxed and packed for the rest of the evening. He is so big, hard to remember him little.

20190515 - Crushed Speeder

20190515 - up in the am and dropped J off at school on the way in to work. Still taking the back way to the big office today. In early and it is quiet so getting things lined up and knocked out. Left a bit early to get to Morango for G's baseball game, middle of no place... Gma&paW showed up for the game and it was s stinker... The same kids that beat us last Sunday crushed us 12-2... G did come in to pitch when the rial were already off, but there was no stopping this wreck... After G's game J&I headed to Hebron to pick up a pullover I left at the poker party. J got to drive my car and it is very fast and sensitive, he was not use to that and tended to speed a bit more :-o We got there go the pullover and J wanted me to drive the rest of the way home. We got home about 9:30 and got shut done for the evening. Up late on the PC getting email done.

Finished the day up with a couple meetings and got out in good time. Home and worked on some Booster stuff until dinner with L&J, D&G at their baseball practices. I finished up the Booster stuff and ran to pick G up. I went to the wrong place... got the the correct place just on time and got him and ran back past the house so he could get his Scout book and on to the church. I sat in one one Board of Review and then it was G's turn so I had to leave the room. G went in and went through the steps and got his Tenderfoot rank tonight. He has 1 more to get before heading to Summer Camp. Home and we hung out watching some TV before heading to bed.

20180512 + Mother's Day

20180512 + Up and LG&I to baseball fields as the #1 seed. D&J stayed home and put L's Mother's Day gift together, a new gas grill, and then joined us at the fields. G's game was tight against a good team that caught everything we hit. An interesting statistic = no one our team struck out during this game, there were a few walks and we only had 4 hits, the rest of those were fielded for out by the other team... We battled back but then got in a pickle where we had last inning and runners on base and G went in to pitch. They were able to get a couple hits off of G that went places we couldn't make the plays and we couldn't get caught back up and we lost. That ended baseball for the day... Frustrated we headed home. Home for just a minute and then LJG&I headed to see the new Avengers movie. it was very good and very long. Back home and I burned in the new grill and looked over the backyard. We cooked some brats and dogs and had a good dinner. We stayed up and watched American Idol and I texted the guys about baseball until late.

20190511 - #1 Seed

20190511 - Up late and got a couple things done before heading to the field. G&I went on our own and D drove L&J there later after letting the McClain's dog out. We had 2 really good games today and the boys won both of them! After the game we headed to the McClain's where we met up with some other folks from the team to relax and chat a bit. D&J put up a volleyball net and then worked on a new patio couch they got. I had to help J finish it. After hanging out a bit we headed home and all got to bed in good time ready for more baseball tomorrow.

Playing against New Albany Gold, that have spanked us by run ruled the last 2 times we met them, the boys fought hard in the rain and G got called to the mound when were down 5/4 and held them. The boys battled back and pulled off the win! Home and had leftovers and we slowed down for the night. D over to a friends and home late.
