Baseball, Girlfriends and a Family Tradition

Good Times......A baseball game for Ellen, time spend with girlfriends and a yummy breakfast with the fam!

Every year we look forward to Chicken BBQ and a Country Breakfast held at Manheim Christian Day School where I attended elementary school. I went to pick up our chicken meals last evening....YUM!....then got Ellen ready for her final Aaron's Acres activity. They were attending the Lancaster Barnstormers baseball opening game. She was excited! After taking her, I went to my friend Brenda's house for a fun girls game night. At one time we all went to the same church. There were 9 of us last night. We ate yummy food, chatted, had some good belly laughs and played a game so we could call it game night! I left after 11....most stayed till the wee hours of the morning!

I couldn't stay that long because I had a breakfast to attend this morning. It's a family tradition to go to MCDS to eat breakfast on their auction day. I always get a made to order omelet and a piece of Moravian Sugar cake. So good! And I drink lots of coffee too. After breakfast we look at some things being sold, buy some whoopie pies at the bake stand then head home. Now I'm full and feel like I need a nap =)

Ellen told us this morning while eating breakfast....she will only share things when she feels like it and is in a casual setting. Asking her how something was will only bring an OK, nothing more. I love it when she shares more detail about an experience.............

Last evening during the game they played the song, Move it Move it, to get the crowd going. Well, Ellen LOVES to dance so of course she stood up and moved it! A camera caught her moving it, moving it... and  projected her on the big screens!!! She was so thrilled! Is that awesome or what!

Ellen has her first Challenger baseball game tomorrow. Last Sunday's game was rained out. I think the weather will be fine tomorrow.  After that, we have a cook-out with some friends from church. Will be a full day again!

Have a great week-end! Take time to enjoy family and the great outdoors. And please remember to Thank the Lord for the blessing of each new day!

How neat for Ellen to be on the big screen! Sounds like you have had fun Doris, and the food all sounds wonderful too. I especially love McD's coffee and tea. Wishing you a great afternoon and a blessed Sunday.

So happy you were able to go and have fun with the girls. I bet Ellen look like she was having a great time on the big screen and made everyone smile. We actually got on tv last night at the phillies game too. We were sitting by the camera in left field. We got a phone call from scott's parents and paityn saying they saw us. They recorded it so we could see it. See you tomorrow!
