What is it that makes you smile? When I look through my pictures I am struck by how very blessed I am. This picture is one of those that makes me smile! My boys love baseball and they love the Oakland A’s. (Although, I think my middle son, Kurt may like the San Francisco Giants better).
My oldest son, Kent Jr. has been an A’s fan ever since I can remember. I have pictures of him when he was little wearing Oakland A’s t-shirts and hats. Would you like to know a stat about baseball, ask him and he probably knows the answer. My youngest son, Kevin bought some season tickets to the A’s game this year and has been having a blast taking his brothers and friends.
One of my most memorable mother’s days was when my boys (and my daughter! also a fan!) took me to the Oakland A’s baseball game. First of all, I have to admit, I am not a baseball fan, but sitting in the stands listening to them yell and scream and hollar was quite the experience!
Last summer as a special surprise I got A’s tickets when I came to town. We all had a great time, although I have to admit it was cold and after I had my share of peanuts and beer and I was ready to go and take a nap. Baseball is not my thing, but spending time with family is such a treat.
Today in your writing do you have some special memories with either baseball or brothers or sons? This can be a great topic to explore in your writing today!
