Sorry it’s been a few days since I last posted. We had a busy weekend with the First Annual Hope Rides Alone Family Reunion on Saturday, which was a smashing success! We raised $500 with 50 people in attendance and the generosity of those locally and around the country. May God bless you for your kindness. Pictures and video from the banquet are forthcoming so stay tuned!

Okay, we made it to Baltimore with the threat of rain that actually turned into a reality about two hours before game time. So when we got to Orioles Park at Camden Yards we had a strong feeling, from looking at the radar, that the game would get postponed. So we waited around for an hour and a half until it was officially postponed. We could have got tickets to Saturday’s doubleheader, however we were heading towards Atlanta making our way back home. Anyway, we still had fun and here are some of the pictures.

The scoreboard to prove we were there:

The game was actually supposed to start at 7:05 pm…

A lot of folks opted to hang out inside the concourse:

I told Karen after attending over 20 Major League Baseball games, this was my first rainout:

No Baseball Tonight

At least I got to watch videos on the jumbotron of the greatest baseball player of all time:

Bugs has the best pick off move in the history of the game:

The night off for the Minnesota Twins did them some good; they won Saturday’s doubleheader 12 – 6 and 12 – 2!

Once the game was officially postponed, we headed back to our room on the 22nd floor at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront. It was definitely a rainy night:

Nevertheless the skyline was still beautiful:

And it was stunning in the morning:

It was really neat watching the boats put on a show in the inner harbor:

The hotel is in a great location to go to sporting events. Here is Orioles Park from our window:

And the Ravens football stadium just around the corner!

We definitely want to return to both cities; Baltimore to enjoy the Inner Harbor with all its fantastic shopping and eateries and next time we go to D.C., we plan on flying. It was a long trip, but worthwhile and we thank the Lord for providing for us to go.

Okay, tomorrow it is back to reality. A lot has been going on in the political world as you know and I have been on vacation long enough. Time to sharpen my pencil!
