Two trips

Two trips in one month! This a new thing for us.First,a trip to Lke Powell for a few days on a 70ft houseboat,then Clovis New Mexico for a softball tournement.
The young ladies play in a eight and under bracket.They won the nationals! Playing the girls that won the title last year,we beat them three times.Twice in one day.
The other team usally wins by 15 runs or more.The Haltom Fireballs beat them 18 to2.
Maybe the 7 hour drive was worth it.
This is the first time year,Hailey, has ever been asked to play at this level.The first few weeks were ify,but the girls came together.They played great and kicked some ass,in the process.
For winning the Nationals,the young ladies were awarded Championship rings,with a chain,so the can wear them around their necks.They may not be Super Bowl rings,but I know 11 young ladies that
 will differ with you.This a big deal for a eight year old!( and a Poohpa)

Vacation 2012--Lake Powell Az.

 Lake Powell marina from the boat.
We shared a houseboat with my brother and his wife,my sister and her man friend and Troy and his wife. We were here for four days of rest,including four days of intense bullshit and lies.It was great!
This my kind of vacation---food,food and more food,and good company.

Like is good.The water was deep,clear, and cool.Movies in the hot part of the day.Hot tub in the later afternoon.It was hot but the humdity was very low.Even when it 100f,it was nice in the shade.

The boat was four bedrooms,two baths,and room for 6 to eat at the table.A hot tub on the upper deck with a wet bar near,stereo and satillite TV in every room.
Ritas in the tub late in the after noon.
Steaks at night.
Eggs and pancakes in the morning.
