Bathing Suits & Baseball

So, last weekend, the Montgomery family (the whole Montgomery family - pugs included) hit the road for some Ranger baseball games in Arlington.

We took the pugs along and never regretted that decision -- dogs need weekends too!

(I know, Lily looks a little scary here, but even dogs have problems when looking directly into the flash!)

Our first game (both against the Manny Ramirez-less Dodgers) was on Friday night, and even though it was quite warm, we had a great time. There was a time in there that we thought we might have to duck and cover due to the nasty looking weather heading our way. But, things turned out ok, no weather and the Rangers won! 

On Saturday, we spent the afternoon at the pool (we did that on Friday too...and it was considerably less crowded). Laying by the pool, reading a book, soaking in some sun...soooo great! Our second game on Saturday night was pretty fun. I had THE.BEST.NACHOS.EVER. But, about 5 innings in, somehow a circuit breaker blew and a whole deal of lights (what's the technical term here??) went out, causing a delay of 1 hour, 40 mins. Needless to say, we walked around the stadium in the sweltering heat, but were getting a bit bored by the time the game resumed. So, we called it good on baseball for the trip and headed back to the hotel.

All in all, we had a great trip. We managed to squeeze in meals at 2 of the 3 Pappas restaurants (Pappadeaux -- John D. LOOOOOOOOVES seafood, and Pappasitos)

Anyway, it was a lot of fun and long overdue!
