I’m leaving Texas and heading back to the Nati. I spent the weekend there with my friends from college having a great time. We played a lot of golf, basketball, derby and tennis. We also went to the Rangers game on Saturday, which was awesome. Our goal was to get 5 balls in batting practice, and we came away with 9 on the night! One of those was from my favorite player, Josh Hamilton. He actually threw me a ball during the game. I flashed him my Reds jersey, and he threw it up after a catch and the third out of the inning. It was awesome!!!
The other big news of the weekend was that my friend Ryan and his wife are pregnant with twins. This is so great because they have been trying for months, and she was getting really discouraged. I’m so happy for them. It seems that we are all heading into that idea of having kids, which I’m all about. We stayed at Wes’ house and he has two cute boys already. I stayed in their room with the Thomas the Train Bedding, Wiggles Toys, and other fun boy toys.
My wife and I are hoping for a little bit more job security, but we’d like to start trying as soon as possible. I cannot wait to have a baby. It will completely change our lives, but I think it will be absolutely amazing. I pray now that I would be developing into the man I need to be to be a good father.
