HIllsboro Hops, part II

As part of our Hillsboro Hops package we "won" at the St. Matthew Auction, we had a 2nd game available to us.  We had 10 seats total, PLUS a great tailgater before the game.  We decided to take the family, plus a pair of friends to fill in for grammae and papa, who had other commitments that night.

First we met at a school parent's house in town.  It was a beautiful setting!  The house was brand-new and the highlight was a fantastic outdoor patio kitchen and backyard:

I was totally drooling, and it wasn't because of the food.
~I want this outdoor kitchen!!!!~
The food and the company were both great.
We didn't know child care would be included!
(My friends Gus and Kerry were helping with the tailgater,
and they couldn't keep their hands off of Celeste.)
On our way to the game.  I was the designated driver.  :o)
great seats on first base

We got on "TV" a lot!
It was a beautiful night.
(Is it bad that I don't remember who won?)
James had wanted his ball (from the other night) signed by more players.  I am a bad mom and I didn't want to do it.  ;o)  But Nicole is always game for something crazy--she is so nice!!  So Marcus gave her the ball and she went right up to the dugout to wait for players:

He is a cutie!!!
(on an unrelated note, I REALLY want to host a player
at our house next year….)  ;o)
It was a great night--a lot of fun!
