D-Backs Update

Me and Lesli at Chase Field

I just got back from another week in Phoenix. It was great to see the D-Backs sweep the Mets. We also had tickets for the Giants series. Unfortunately, the Giants won that series, but we did get to witness Kelly Johnson Hit for the Cycle. My heart is breaking a little for two reasons. One, because the D-backs traded my favorite pitcher, Dan Haren, to the Angels yesterday and two, because I'm not going back for any games in August. I will rebound, though. I do have two trips booked for September to see games against the Astros, Giants, Rockies, and Dodgers. Yay for baseball!!

Sorry, the sound's not that great and you can hear Lesli and me talking in the background.

Mitch and Me at Mulligan's


Yesterday I took Mitch to Mulligans to go miniature golfing. The kid loves to golf. He's pretty good too. He was cracking me up (and everyone around us too). Every time he hit the ball into the hole, he stated, "That was a sweet ride." Apparently, that's his new phrase for everything. We played almost two courses of mini-golfing. We hadn't quite finished the first course when Mitch lost his ball into the water. We went and got another ball and played the entire course again. Mitch is pretty hard-core. He didn't want to leave and cried a little about going even after all that golfing. On our way out to the car, I noticed he had a blister on his finger. I'm telling you, that kid is hard core.
