Ball Game & Movie Review

Peter and Nathan went to Baltimore this weekend for their annual trip to see an Orioles/Yankees game with friends, Wayne and Jonathon {the Yankee fans of the group}. They look forward to this trip, but it looked as though it might be a wash out! Fortunately, after some very stormy weather, the rain let up and the game was on!!! The Orioles {who normally don't do so well} have had an amazing season, and after last night's game, they are tie with the Yankees for first place in the AL East. The O's beat the Yankees 5-4 {the first game Nathan & Peter have been to that they have won!} I talked with Peter after the game and he said he thought he was going to have a heart attack before the game was over!!! Nathan was pumped as well!!! I took a few pictures before they left.....

Nathan took this one at the game......
 Had a great trip with these guys!
 
With the men away for the night, I took full advantage of the quiet time alone. I'd been wanting to see "The Lucky One" on PPV, and this was a great time for a solo movie night! :O) I loved it! I should have known that I would, Nicholas Sparks hasn't disappointed me yet!
If you haven't seen, I recommend you put it on your list.
THE LUCKY ONE starring Zac Efron
"Based on Nicholas Sparks' bestseller The Lucky One, Zac Efron ("17 Again," "Charlie St. Cloud") stars alongside Taylor Schilling (TV's "Mercy") and Blythe Danner ("Meet the Parents" franchise) in this romantic drama directed by Academy Award®-nominated writer/director Scott Hicks ("Shine," "No Reservations").
U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Efron) returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq, with the one thing he credits with keeping him alive—a photograph he found of a woman he doesn't even know. Learning her name is Beth (Schilling) and where she lives, he shows up at her door, and ends up taking a job at her family-run local kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and the complications in her life, a romance develops between them, giving Logan hope that Beth could be much more than his good luck charm." - link here
