It's almost time to go home!!

So I am counting down the days until I FINALLY get to go home! I haven't been to Alabama to visit in almost 4 months..so it's been quite some time! I leave on Wednesday around the same time Adam does and I get back on August 15th. It will be interesting to see how big his laundry pile will be when I get back to Salt Lake :) Pretty much all of the girls are going home to visit the same time I am gone. I have heard from a few girls that their husbands or boyfriends are going to spend the majority of the time that all of the girls are gone playing X box, and that includes Adam. I am packing up all of my winter clothes and a few pairs of shoes that I won't be needed anymore now that we don't have to worry about any more cold weather, for a while there I thought that it would never get hot here. We were always complaining about how cold it always was, but now it seems like everyone complains because it is so hot! There never really was an "in between" of the hot and cold, just one day it was like, 40 degrees and then the next day it was 90 degrees! Crazy! Oh well, at least out here there is no humidity....so it's reallllllly nice!

According to Adams blog before this it seemed as if he was hating on my Spanish learning. Personally I think it's just jealousy :) I did learn how to complete a phrase today, it was ," Where is the bathroom?"...HaHa. I guess that is a pretty important one to know. I am making pretty good progress though I guess. I found a lot of free Spanish lessons online, and a lot of sites have games that will help too. Who knows how much I will actually learn but I figure that it's better than nothing! I am sure he will thank me later when we are in the middle of Mexico or Venezuela, or where ever!

Today was my brothers 25th Birthday..whoop whoop!

Well, I don't think I have anything else to talk about. I hope everyone is doin alright!

Big number 20 !!!!

I hit my 20th home run on Saturday night. I didn't actually think that when I started the season I would have put up the home runs that I have so far. The work outs that I did this off season, the tiny changes in my swing, and the consistent playing time have really helped me show what I can do. We still have 35 games left so we will see how I finish off the rest of the season.

I haven't heard anything on winter ball yet, but my agent is keeping me updated. It's funny because I sometimes catch Lindsay on the computer trying to learn Spanish. I ask her what she is doing and she says, " Just in case we go somewhere that speaks Spanish, I will be prepared!" It will probably be a good thing in the end.

Matt Brown, one of our infielders, went to church with us this morning, we wanted to spend some time with him before he leaves. Today was his last day before he heads off to start training with Team USA. They will practice and play a few exhibition games before going over to Beijing for the Olympics. It's pretty exciting for him.

I thought y'all might like this. A little while back Lindsay , Megan Olenberger, and Darcy Budde had the opportunity to be on-field entertainment during one of our home baseball games. In between the 7th and 8th inning they have a pizza, ice cream cone, and hot dog race from right field to home plate. Usually it's 3 random fans from the crowd, but Lindsay begged the on-field promotions director for 3 weeks to get her in the hot dog suit. She got her wish...and won the race.

After the game today Lindsay and I went to see the movie Step Brothers with Will Ferrell. It was packed out and kept everyone laughing. It is nice to have Sunday day games because it leaves our evenings open to do things that we normally don't get to do.

We hope you like the new site, we still might tinker around with it though. We do have a new photo gallery, the link is on the top of the right column along with a link to our old website.

Talk to you later,
