america's game.

"That's beautiful: the hurrah game! well — it's our game: that's the chief fact in connection with it: America's game: has the snap, go fling, of the American atmosphere — belongs as much to our institutions, fits into them as significantly, as our constitutions, laws: is just as important in the sum total of our historic life."
Walt Whitman

I couldn't agree more, Mr. Whitman.

7/25: Colorado Rockies vs. San Franciso Giants

Good Food

Good Company

Great Game

i was definitely thankful for our covered seats.
but i like how umbrellas make things a little more colorful.


we even had a great view of the mountains.
i like this city.
we will do whatever it takes to avoid a double chin.
these little guys were adorable.
they would get up and yell, take off their caps, basically copy everything the men in front of them did:)

seventh-inning stretch sing-along!

***things took a little turn for the worse during the nineth inning.

calley's cracked tooth+pain worse than childbirth+pouring rain+a trip to the ER+some prescription meds+meeting the dentist this am+more pain meds+getting the tooth pulled tomorrow=an interesting 24 hours.

fortunately we found this little gem while getting a prescription filled this afternoon.

tomorrow is my first day of new teacher training.

here's to hoping i make some teacher friends and won't have to sit alone at lunch:)


  1. poor Calley! that story's making my tooth hurt.

    I don't think I'll be sleeping tonight after hearing that bear sing and seeing its FOOTY PAJAMAS. I don't know which was worse...

  2. 1) Who won the game???

    2) I like how serious you were when you were singing the Take Me Out to the Ballgame song. :)

    3) wow, sucky about Calley's tooth. thankfully that frightening bear with like a creapy singing voice and moving mouth can make her laugh!
