baseball

I guess I unintentionally took a few weeks off from blogging. I’ve just been busy working on some projects and hanging out with some friends. In fact, one of my dear friends, Kristy, is in the States visiting for a bit, so I got to spend some time with her. I was so excited that she wanted to go to a Bees game. I’ve been meaning to go all summer and yet the season almost ended without me attending a game. We met up last week for a perfect night of summer baseball. To be honest, I don’t think we watched more than 5 minutes of the game. Although, there was a heated argument at one point between a player and an umpire, but otherwise it was the perfect setting in which to catch up. (I haven’t seen Kris since I visited her in England over three years ago! Well, other than watching her on House Hunters International, I mean.) While we chatted, we also got to enjoy this beautiful view.

I just love how green the field is and the pattern of the grass.

Here’s an action shot – can you see the runner coming home? It was a close call, but he was safe.

It was still bright and hot when the game started. Halfway through the game, it was dusk, and by the time we were ready to leave, it was dark. There are very few times in my life where I really get to see the day turn into night.

    Great pics, Katie! If that runner was safe, then that catcher is terrible. πŸ™‚ I love the mountains in the distance. Here in Reno, the background is mostly just casinos.

    BTW, thumbs up on House #1, and a bigger thumbs up on the Williams gig. Tom and I will have to tell you our F1 stories if you haven’t heard them next time we catch up.

      He could have been out. I really wasn’t paying attention. πŸ™‚ I know there was definitely one time, though, when the runner was safe because I cheered.

      I totally want to catch up! I need to make a trip to Reno sometime soon.

    I watched their episode. Your friends are so cute. What a darling place to live.

    Ha! Yep. Totally watched their episode. Dick and I have been insanely jealous of them ever since we saw it. What I would give to live in Oxford. Or England in general.

    I was getting excited for fall and winter (or trying to convince myself about winter, anyway)… And now, after looking at these pictures of a Bees game, I’m left feeling sad that summer is gone and over with. I fell in love with going to Bees games this summer. So awesome. Your pictures capture exactly what I love.
