Day 73: Mom Joins the Trip and Surprises Mik

A few hours ago we picked Mom up in Houston to join us seeing old family friends in Texas this weekend and then drive home with us. Mik did not know about Mom joining us until she opened the door when we picked her up at the airport. It was really hard to stall the three hours her flight was delayed, but turns out he is so oblivious when he is playing his games or iPod in the back seat that he did not even notice we drove in a sort of circle around Houston or even when we had to take the second circle around the airport pick up. He still would rather be home with all his stuff in his room, but he is happy to see Mom after almost 2 months. The two of them are yelling/singing to Billy Currington's "People Are Crazy" song in the back seat now.

Day 73: Fluffy Learning to Play Animal Crossing

Mik has been snugging his lion (he named it Fluffy) a lot. I even just spotted him snugging it while playing Animal Crossing on his DS today.

Kj’s Baseball Collection: Tropicana Field

At the Rays game I found a ballpark ball for my baseball collection. On one strip the ball has a view of the infield with a Tropicana Field logo on top of the image in the middle. The view of the infield is actually interesting because it was taken during the 2008 World Series, so it has the painted 2008 World Series logos in the foul territory on both base sides. The image is also with the Rays and Phillies players lined up on the base lines. The other strip has a diamond Rays logo and a TB logo.

Mik’s Mini Bat Collection: Natural Rays

At the Rays game Mik decided on a natural colored Rays mini bat. The mini bat as the diamond shaped Rays logo on it.
