On our way home

Well...the season is over! .280 batting average, 22 home runs, 80 RBI's, and the team won the division for the third time in a row. By far my best season professionally ever. I wish we were still in the playoffs but we got beat by the Sacramento Rivercats( Oakland A's triple-A) in the first round. Oh well... Just means we get to make that Sept. 13th Alabama football game in Tuscaloosa. Lindsay's dad has season tickets so we get to go!!!!!!!!!!! We can't wait.



We packed the house up on Sunday night and left Salt Lake City on Monday morning. The drive is around 30 hours total with construction, traffic, and stops. We stopped just outside of Lincoln, NE the first night and today we continued the drive and made it to Memphis where we are stopping for the night before finishing up the remaining four hours tomorrow. The drive has been better than I thought with Lindsay leading the way and I'd call her every now and then with directions and stops. She was a trooper yesterday, driving a total of 15 1/2 hours!



Once we finally get to Bama we are going to stay with Lindsay's brother for the week. He has a big new house all to himself so there is plenty of room. That means that Lindsay will get to see her nephew, Hunter, every night. We don't have any big plans while we are there except for a big lunch at Lindsay's Grandparents house on Friday and then tailgating and football ALL day Saturday!!



Lindsay dyed her hair before we left SLC. It is amazing. She has never dyed it this dark before, it is almost black ( dark chocolate, to be exact ). She freaked out about it at first but after a day or two she is finally used to it. Everybody in Salt Lake loved it!

I should be back in Florida on Monday night.
