River Cats Game mixed with Random Memories and Thoughts


Scott and I leave for Florida Saturday morning. We have been trying to fit all the last minute hang out's, game times, "never been before's," before we head back.
So, with that said, we were able to "catch" 2 birds with one stone (I know the real word is kill, but this is my blog post and I don't like that word). We went to a RiverCats baseball game (I have been once years ago) with my sis and her fam, and one of my best friends along with her family. We had such a good time and the weather could not have been more perfect. I love the atmosphere of triple A baseball games. There is always fresh cut green lawn to sit on, the music is catchy and dance worthy, and you find the most interesting people to stare at (like the couple in front of us who were practically on top of each other and finally left. I think they heard us saying how we would never do that in public).

So, you need a little back ground information about Jenny "Hill" Peterson. We were freshman roommies at Ricks College. We were probably the most annoying girls to our poor roommates. We were always dancing around the apartment (with or without muscic), singing the wrong words to all of the songs (Jenny was the worst with that), and making the most grotesque faces in the mirrors while asking, "Would you be my friend if I looked like this?" Jenny was the most spastic person I ever knew, probably more so than myself (and Jenny, you know that is true). :) She would probably argue that I was. My favorite to date story of Jenny actually happened at the game. All of us girls were waiting outside of the gate while the husbands bought tickets. This random guy (we think he was a worker), who was a little strange, stopped by all of the little girls and pulled out bags and bags of mini jelly belly's from his pocket (I know, kind of scary, huh?). The girls are squeeling with delight and Jenny practically reaches in front of him and grabs her girls hands while saying, "Now girls, you know to always ask me FIRST before taking candy from ANYONE." Then she smiles a cute smile at the guy and he walks away. I was laughing so hard at the same time feeling very proud of my friend for protecting the girls that way. Anyway, we have stayed really close througout the years and I love being able to spend time with her. She and her family just moved back from Sacramento. Too bad I was not able to spend more time with her.
Don't ask me what the heck I am doing in this picture.

Juls joined us at Ricks our second year. She was greatly accepted into our two man click. We really did have some great adventures those many, many years ago.

What a good-looking guy he is. I am so proud of all that Scott has done. He just finished interning at the Attorney Generals office and really enjoyed it. Our ultimate goal is to get back to Sacramento when he graduate. Keeping our fingers crossed.

The little girls and...the RiverCat? I am not sure of it's name. To be honest, I always called the RiverCats, River"Rats" just because I thought it was a lame baseball name. But that was before I knew how awesome they were. SO I really don't know if they are awesome or not, I have never seen thier stats.

Juls and Brian. We had a blast sharing my parents house for the past 4 weeks. We have had many late nights playing games (which I never won, not once!), visiting, and raising all sorts of ruckus. Brian starts work in November and just finished taking the California Bar so life is pretty much chill for him before taking on his new adventure at the law firm. Ada LOVES Brian and even cries when I take her from him. I am not sure where the bond happened, but it happened and it came on strong.
The summer has been great and although we are sad to leave our families and friends again, we are excited to get back to Florida to finish off Scott's last year. Thanks to Mom and Dad Lovell for opening up your home to us and giving us free rent and food all summer (mixed in with movies and little vaca's). And Thanks to Mom and Dad Foley for letting us crash at your house random weekends and hanging out with us, and also helping us out with our move!
Peace out Sacramento...until Christmas.

We're so glad you had a stop-over in CA long enough for us to visit you. Good luck in your next chapter, and hope to see you again soon!

I'm cracking up! I thought I'd calmed down, but I guess I just am spastic in other ways now!! You should have seen me yesterday at the district office fighting to get my daughter into school. Another great moment!

What a fun summer! I bet it's been so nice to be able to spend so much time with family. It'll be nice to get to your own little home and get back in to a routine though huh?!

I want to know how exactly the stone is used in catching birds. :P I also want to know where Ada is . . . I don't see her in any pictures. Or am I missing something? No baseball game for Ada?

Lindsay said...

Haha...Stacy, the stone just stuns the bird, but does not kill it :). Ada goes to bed at 7:00PM and the game started at 7ish. We sometimes will keep her up but she was starting to get sick (and still is a bit). So that is why. She would have loved it, though!!!

Boquinha said...

Heheheh. Don't get me wrong. Of COURSE we like to see you and Scott, but you know we all want to see Ada. ;)

Lindsay said...

That's how it goes once you have kids! :)No one cares to see pictures of the people that actually brought her to this life...
