Again I'm not going to do a normal post today. I need the time to prepare Cole Gibsen's guest post for tomorrow. Speaking of which don't forget to come back to read it! It's going to be a fun, amusing and incredibly informative post with the ACTUAL query and correspondence that landed her an agent.
Absolute submission science gold here folks so DO NOT miss it!
Anyway on to my post:
We took my daughter Madison and nephew Bryce to their fist Braves baseball game last night. The Bravos beat the cubs 3-2 but it wasn't looking good until Chipper hit a dinger right into our section in the eighth. Jason Heyward also got an RBI double early in the game.
Here's Madison in the car:
I believe she is reading Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Olympians, book two. She had been begging for a perm so that she could rock the Taylor Swift look, but mom got her some curlers instead. I think she looked really cute.
Here's Madison, Bryce and me, watching the cubs batting practice warm-up:
Finally here's Madison and by good friend Shaun's son James with a "Ball-Headed Guy":
Personally I find Baseball a little slow and boring, even at the game, though I do like to follow the standings in the paper. I'm more of a football, basketball and World Cup kind of guy, not to mention books and reading. Even so it was really fun to watch the kids having such a blast enjoying the Great American Pastime. There is a certain romance to it all.
I was especially pleased around the seventh inning, when suddenly Bryce looked up at the sky and said: "Look Uncle Matt, it's dark out." He apparently hadn't realized it was night time (and past his bed time) because of all the bright lights and excitement. It really made me appreciate his innocence.
So, anyway I hope you all enjoyed the pics but the important thing here is that you come back tomorrow, read Cole's guest post, learn from it, emulate it in your own endeavors and then comment and follow both blogs if you're not already. Mine is obviously right here but you can find Cole's blog at: Hair Dye & Samurai.
