12U A Western Nationals in Fort Collins, Colorado.
...It was a LOOOOOONG 2 day trip to Fort Collins from Seattle. Kinz and I were off for 10 days of SOFTBALL FUN! We met our AWESOME caravanning buddies in the morning... grabbed some coffee, and we were off! :)
I TOTALLY enjoyed our talks along the way with Kinz and sharing this time with the Hands, Peterson's, Ensrud's and the Riggs. We stopped in Idaho the first night and had a FUN dinner and let the girls swim. It was HOT!
I think driving the second day was much harder... 'ARE WE THERE YET?'
When we got there - we had a LOT of down time and we were able to get out and explore a little... Here we are in Estes Park! It was BEAUTIFUL!
Made me want to siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing, ♫ ♪ THE HILLLLLLLLS ARE ALIIIIIIIIIIIVE, WITH THE SOUND OF MUUUUUUUUUUUSIC! ♫ ♪ Laaaaaaa laaaaaaa laaa laaa :)
I even got to hook up with one of my dear friends all the way back from Kindergarten (maybe even preschool - I can't quite remember) KIM, it was SOOOOOOOOO GOOD to see you!!!! (grabbed a pic off her facebook cuz the pic the waitress took of us didn't turn out super FAB! hehehehe! :)
LOVE that she's wearing her ORDINARY HERO t-shirt in this pic - with her beautiful daughter!!! It was SO fun to sneak away from softball for a bit and catch up with KIM!!! LOVE YOU KIM!!!
...Was TOTALLY hoping to catch up with another one of my friends named Kimberly (from AGCI) but we couldn't get it to work out. DARN.
The girls had a great time. They placed in the top 9 out of 38 teams! NOT BAD! :)
The Momma's had a good time toooooo! :)
10 days is a long time to be away though and we were EXCITED to get back home! So, as soon as they were out of the tournament we jumped in the car and headed HOME! YAY! :)
WAY TO GO KINZ - You played great! I LOVE WATCHING YOU!
