After spending about 5 hours at the water park, we cleaned up, put on dry clothes and drove to our next destination....The Ballpark at Arlington. At 5 pm, Mercy Me was putting on a concert on the lawn outside the ballpark. We found our spot under a shade tree and sang praises to our God with thousands of others. Josh Hamilton, a Texas Ranger's player, is an outspoken Christian and he gave a few minutes of his time to encourage us in our Christian walk. When the concert ended, we ventured up to the third level on the third base side and baked in the sun until it hid behind the stadium. The game began at 7 pm and we made it to the top of the 5th inning before departing for home! Thinking ahead, we had the kids PJ's ready and waiting for the ride back to Louisiana. My sweet husband drove us safely home while we all snoozed and he had to get up and preach his heart out the next morning. Once upon a time, we would have LOVED this kind of adventure, but in our "older" age we began to wonder what we were thinking. Needless to say, our kids bounced right back into a routine and loved every minute of our adventurous (but long) day!
What a Day!
