Holly and I spent last week in Florida visiting my mom. In case you’re wondering why we’d drive to central Florida in August, here’s why!
It’s my mom’s birthday,

|homemade banana-orange ice cream for dessert|
and it’s the Little League World Series.
|knitting and baseball go very well together!|
I never even knew about the LLWS, but my mom says she’s been watching it for years. This is my third time and I have to say I’m a fan. I didn’t keep count of how many games we watched over the week, but I’d guess close to 20! It’s baseball with heart… and now that I have little boy(s … soon there will be two!) in my life I’ve added a trip to Williamsport to my bucket list.

Apparently Katie hasn’t seen the LLWS either!
So there was plenty of good wine, food, baseball and knitting. And also a long list of to-do’s with my mom (Alaska trip planning, sorting through files and more files, and a few other lingering tasks since my dad passed away).
Of course there were also daily walks with lots of blue skies (not so great, really – they need rain desperately),
|from Thursday’s walk|
only one scary alligator sighting,

and Friday night happy hour with Mother’s girlfriends.
|such great sports to pose for a photo (I had to promise it wouldn’t end up on Facebook 😉|
…all too soon it was time to head home.
|late Sunday morning|
I will say traveling on Sunday is about as good as it gets. I’ve got lots to catch up on…good thing it’s only Monday!
Have a great week!
