Night With the Cats

A few nights ago we took my parents to a Fort Worth Cats baseball game.  We had a church tailgate party in the parking lot, then I had an opportunity to sing the National Anthem with my church choir.  It went really well despite the fact that I almost jumped out of my skin when they set off huge fireworks during the “bombs bursting in air” part. 

If you’ve never been to a minor league baseball game, I highly recommend it!  Parking is easy, every seat is good, and it just feels more like small-town America.  We happened to go on a night where they had a fabulous fireworks show after the game, too!  Here’s Grace at the beginning of the game.  She had just sighed and told me that “baseball is SOOOO BEAUTIFUL, Mama!”  I can’t imagine where she gets her dramatic flair.

Thankfully we had a “cool front” come through so it was only in the 80’s/90’s for the game!  Not too bad at all for August in Texas.


Much to Grace’s delight, Larry twirled her around after the game on a makeshift dance floor.

It was a great night. We feel like honorary members of your wonderful family. Dancing with Grace was lots of fun.
