Scenes From Our Weekend {Sunday Funday Edition}

Here we are Monday morning..again! I cannot believe that this is the last week of June!

 We had a pretty low key weekend. Pizza friday night. A date night Saturday. Sunday was when the fun happened. I have mentioned before that we live in a small town. I grew up in Charlotte...which is a huge city. I never imagined that I would end up in Eastern North Carolina. If you aren't from around here then you really don't understand what I mean. Eastern North Carolina is like a whole different ball game when it comes to things. It's small towns. It's everyone knowing everyone. It's a slower pace of life.

For example. We rode the rec train yesterday. I know I talked about this earlier when Jack's class rode it at the end of the year. Every Sunday from May to October you can go ride the train at the rec. It's a cute little train that costs $1 to ride. Which is up from the $0.25 that it cost when Patrick was Jack's age. It's really cute and kids love it. We didn't have anything like this in Charlotte growing up. As we were riding around and around the track yesterday I couldn't help but think how excited I am that my boys get to grow up in a town that has something so unique and fun. Patrick still remembers going to the train and riding it as a little boy with his parents. I foresee lots of Sunday afternoons spent here this summer and for many summers to come!

After we rode the train we headed over to watch the summer baseball league, The Wilson Tobs, play a game. Now, I had really never heard of such a thing before moving to Wilson. Sure, I knew there were baseball teams, but I assumed all were the major and minor leagues. This is different. Think the movie "Summer Catch" {please tell me you've seen it? Freddy Prince Jr....anyone?} It's a league where college boys from all other come to play. It's a fun activity for everyone. You can look around and see young kids running around trying to catch foul balls to grandparents sitting in the stands watching. As I sat there and watched the game, looking around, I couldn't help but to think, again, that I feel lucky that my boys get to grow up going to these games each summer. Local families even host these players for the summer. Letting them live in their house. I foresee my boys begging to have a Tobs player live with us each summer.

When we woke up yesterday morning we didn't have a plan for the day. I assumed it would be like every other Sunday. Errands, chores, naps, maybe the pool. As I went to bed last night I couldn't help but think what a fun day we had and that I can't wait until we get to do it all over again!
