Back in the mitten state for the weekend and thoroughly enjoying it. Warm weather and sunshine, plenty of green everywhere – a nice change of pace. I spent the morning watching my dad coach the Hastings varsity softball team  at a tournament in Allendale. Not their best games, but still looking good! Makes me miss playing. The slow pitch beer leagues I’m on now just don’t quite have the same pace. So nice to spend a sunny afternoon outside with the family.  Shortly after, however, we snuck in a little mall time which was sorely needed. My credit card is still weeping. It’s ok little guy, we have lots of nice (and much needed, I tell myself) things now!
