Double Header Baseball

Well, the rain has finally stopped in Huntsville, Alabama so we are heading out for baseball tonight.

Last night’s game got rained out, which means we get a double header tonight starting at 5:05PM. Why 5:05 instead of 5:00PM? I don’t know, but the Huntsville Stars have always started games at 5 minute past the hour. It could be due to the games being aired on the radio.

Tonight and tomorrow night are the last in town games for this season. We have enjoyed the season with our little Katie Beth, but good things must come to an end. And, our baby needs to stop going to bed around 10:00PM.

We hope to win season tickets during tomorrow’s game. They will be drawing from all the tickets turned in throughout the season for a life time pass. And, they will be drawing for four season tickets based on people who donated to a charity.

Great Beer on my 42nd Birthday

Paulaner SalvatorWe decided to make a beer run on Saturday before my birthday. (Actually, I decided to make a beer run and let Karen have time to herself, but she didn’t want to miss anything so she joined Katie Beth and me.) We headed to Tennessee, because you can’t buy good beer in Alabama due to the dumb beer laws. (see

I picked up a number of beers including Paulaner Salvator, which we have had on draft at the Redstone Arsenal Oktoberfest. We loved it. I was looking forward to trying it, again.

It was great like I remembered. It was a nice birthday gift to myself.

42nd Birthday Around the Corner

Well, my 42nd birthday is just around the corner and I have learned that they mean less each year. I'm not sure why they mean less but they do.

I guess the focus is changing now that I have a baby girl. Or, it is something else.

We will be kicking back on the deck with my parents while enjoying a great dinner.

Point Mallard Water Park

Fun at Point Mallard Water ParkWe went to Point Mallard today and we had a great time in the wave pool and water works for children. The water in the wave pool was cold, but you got use to it after awhile. As you can see in the picture, Katie Beth was having fun.

She enjoyed the river, too. The idea of water, sand, and sticks were like heaven to her. We had to pick her up just to get her to go for lunch.

The water works area was enjoyable, but the equipment needs to worked on to improve it.

Double Header Tonight with Huntsville Stars

Karen, Katie Beth, and I are heading to the double header game between the Huntsville Stars and Chattanooga Lookouts. This game is the first of the series and the first match since the brawl that emptied the benches in Chattanooga during the teams last match up.
