Time in Texas

Last week, we went to Texas for the main purpose of watching the boys play baseball, but we did much more while we were there.

Our first afternoon there found J at baseball practice and P had his first swim team practice.

On Friday, K fixed chocolate-chip pancakes before the boys went to school. Mike and the SIL went to see the empty fields and file some paperwork. K had things to do at school and do payroll. We met Bob Bob for lunch along with Liz and her Dad.
We drove out to see the windmills that are being erected.

Friday evening, the boys had swim practice before the rains came. It poured at their house, and then the sun came out and gave us this gorgeous rainbow. (Now realize that they have had little or no measurable rain since November; we come and it rains 3 of the 4 days we are there!)

It didn't rain at the baseball field, so J was able to get his game in. Keeping his eye on the ball!

It was a winning game, but time to take the equipment home.

Dad is the assistant coach and they always have duties.

On Saturday, sil had to go to a booster club activity, but the rest of us, including the other grandparents and Liz went to Banquete so that P could play a game. This is a very small community about 30 minutes away and has a convenience store and that's about it!

P, before he put his "game face" on!

P pitched and was 2 for 3 at the plate and his team won.

J was really into the excitement of the game!

After the game, we stopped for wonderful pizza before K and P joined sil at the booster club function, which was a team roping event. Again, it rained, there was another rainbow and then they went to the club sponsered dance. J enjoyed the time with his animals.

On Sunday, we went to church and then to town for a great hamburger.

After driving around in town and seeing the bay, we drove to check on a couple of the fields. There sould be cotton in this field, knee high, but the seed hasn't even come up!

We were able to get a little closer on this drive to the windmills.

Container gardening is the way to go.

All too soon, it was time for us to head back to TN after a good visit.
