A Weekend of Many Firsts

It was a weekend of many firsts for FW. First time in a pool, first family softball game, first time seeing (and petting and sitting on!) a horse, and probably a few more that I’m missing.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. Here are some highlights from our weekend.

Friday night included some homemade pizza and an episode of Sneaky Pete before B went to work on the house. We haven’t had homemade pizza in FOREVER and it was so delicious. And it’s nice to have a homemade meal when I don’t have to cook (B’s the pizza chef).

Saturday was JAM PACKED. I started off the morning with my fastest run since my piriformis issue and got in 3.54 miles! With some stretching and foam rolling of course.

After that, we were on our way to B’s family’s bi-annual softball game. Every other year, the families get together for the Carney Games and play one another in softball.

I’m not the most athletic person, but I’m not awful at softball – I’m one of the worst players on the team, but I did make 2 hits and got a run in the 3 1/2 innings I played (I was only at bat twice).

Our team won! The score was something ridiculous like 20-7 …

After the game, we headed to B’s uncle’s house. He has a lot of land and a farm with cows, horses, and a pool.

FW loved being in the pool! It was his first time, and B and I got to hold him and glide him around in the water.

We enjoyed some good food and beverages, and then FW got to see some of the animals. He was less-than-thrilled with his first horse experience. He’s a city boy and uncomfortable around wildlife like his momma 🙂

FW also got to hang out with his cousin. They are only a few months apart, which is great!

I didn’t get a picture of the amazing food (they make their own sausage!), but I did get a pic of my drink of choice. Rose and cider? Count me in!

Sunday came and went waay too fast! The day started with some pancakes and a 4 mile run.

Followed by reading with this guy one of my brother’s old books.

And then, some time in the splash park downtown. He loves running around in the fountains and was soaked!

We ended the day with takeout sushi. Sunday night typically means dinner with B’s family, but B ended up working on the house until after 7, so we didn’t get a chance to make dinner. Takeout sushi is okay with me, though!

Some questions for you:

  • Do you play softball?
  • Do you have any family competitions?

I’m linking up with the weekly wraps!

  1. Congrats on your fastest run since your “bum” issue! I hope you continue to get better. I love the idea of a family competition (reminds me of a movie). I’m glad your team won. I played baseball with the boys in elementary school but not later on.

  2. What a fun weekend for you all and don’t downgrade yourself for not being the best softball player, You are on a team and that team can’t accomplish anything without each of its players. Your way better than I am, I’m afraid I wouldn’t even try it! 🙂
    I loved seeing FW on the horse, hey ya gotta get out of the city every once in awhile!
