Sunday, March 6th

Jamie had two games today. The bus, Uncle Mike driving the van, left the villa at 9am this morning.  Jamie had two games today at 11am and 3:30pm.  We won both games, YAY!!. Jamie had a triple in the second game.  We were losing by 2 in the 7th inning but luckily one of our girls hit a walk off home run. YAY!! Hopefully the rest of the week follows today's lead.

Monday, March 7th Happy Birthday Jamie!!!

Today was a rough day for ESU softball. We lost both games, but Jamie had a good day hitting. We picked up Shannon from the airport during Jamie's first day, but were back in time to catch the end of the game. In the first game ESU came back to tie it up, but still ended up not pulling it out. It was chilly in the morning, so we decided that Shannon brought the cold with her. By like 1pm it started to break and the sun came out. So at least we had nice weather for the end of the second game. Since it was Jamie's birthday we had a little party for her during dinner. Jamie and two other girls from the team came by to help celebrate (Brittany and Brittany) along with the one Britney's parents and her b/f. So we had a nice spaghetti dinner, cake and ice cream.

Tuesday, March 8th

Today we split our games. We started out with a good lead in the first game, but ended up losing. The girls bounced back though and came through strong in the second game for a win. Shannon was in charge of the scoreboard so that added some fun to the game and kept us focused. It was a gorgeous day today so we also got some nice color.

Wednesday, March 9th

Today was a day off for the girls. We decided to go to Universal Studios the Island of Adventures park. There were 11 of us total hanging out all day. Aunt Sue, Uncle Mike, Jared, Shannon, me, Jamie, Brittany, Brittany, Brittany's parents and her b/f Kenny. We had a great time on all of the rides. I was really excited to check out Harry Potter. It was really crowded in the Harry Potter area so we didn't wait to get in to some of the shops. We did the new ride that takes you soaring through Hogwarts as if you are flying on a broom. It was an intense ride and with my hangover I was a little nauseous after the ride. Everyone in our group said it was a little rough on the stomach or head, but it was still a good ride and pretty cool to go on. I think if I didn't have a headache to begin with I would have been fine. So don't drink the night before going to Harry Potter. HAHA  As always the Spiderman ride was awesome and we did it twice. We also had a great time on Popeye & Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges. Everyone of us got soaked and we laughed the entire time. We were all exhausted by the time the park closed at 7pm, but it was a great day. Jared and I are looking forward to going back and doing the Universal Studios side next week.

Thursday, March 10th
We woke up to rain today, which ruined our plans of laying out by the pool all morning. The girls are supposed to play at 3:30pm and 7:30pm today, so we will see if that happens or not. As for us we are going to watch some movies and hang out at the house for now.

We got the call from Jamie with the updated schedule. They are both of their games for today are canceled, but they are playing a different team at 8pm.

It was freezing at the game tonight. We were all bundled up and felt like we were back up north. Luckily the girls won or it would have really stunk being there. We got home pretty late so we all went right to bed since the girls play again tomorrow morning at 9am and 11am.

Friday, March 11th

We got up super early to get ready to head out for the last games of the week. It was still chilly this morning so I was wearing like 3 sweatshirts, but by the second game it warmed up some and I was able to drop it down to just a long sleeve shirt. We won the first game today, but lost the second one.  They ended up 5 and 4 for the week with our girl Jamie holding the leading batting average for the team. YAY Jamie!!!

It ended up being pretty nice by the time we got home from the games so we grilled out, drank some beers and hung out by the pool.

Saturday, March 12th

With no games today we had all day to hang out and relax. Jared and I packed up some since we are heading out early tomorrow to head to Universal Studios. Then we hung out by the pool, watched the Johns Hopkins lacrosse game. Aunt Sue and Uncle Mike's neighbor across the street Kyle plays for Johns Hopkins. They won it was a blow out and Kyle scored two goals. After the game was over we decided to head to Downtown Disney to walk around and check it out. We hung out there for a while and then stopped at Chili's on our way home for some drinks and food.
