It was a great day!!

Wow, two posts in one day! I can't help it though...so many things happened today I just have to share with you!

After I posted this morning...and after my physical therapy appointment, I ran home and grabbed some lunch. By then DH had arrived home from work so we hopped in the car and picked up DS from school...a little early...we used the excuse of having a "personal reason" as we were all decked out in our Orioles gear. LOL We drove into the city, parked, and hiked about 30 minutes to the game...quite a challenge for me these days, but I made it! The game was exciting...so much fun...and I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story!!



But that wasn't the end of my great day!! I got home to find a few surprises in my mail box...but the best one was a little package from Great Britain!! Thank you, Gillie, for the beautiful pincushion!! I ADORE the colors, and it's so cute...wrapped up in a lovely handkerchief. I've been waiting since March 14th with baited breath...I knew it had been mailed but it seemed to take ages to arrive. It's safely here, and has pride of place in my curio cabinet. Thank you so much!!


Ok, off to bed...I only had two hours of sleep last night and a busy day, so I'm off to dreamland...maybe dream of my favorite baseball player...Brian Roberts, whose 3 run home run won the ballgame today.

B. Rob...you make my heart throb!!

So glad you had a great time. We haven't been to an O's game in a while, probably because we're more Nationals fans! But I do like going to Balmer... hon!
