Archery and a Baseball Game.

Good morning, it is Monday.

This is blog post number two for the day.  If you didn't see my first one, scroll down and check it out!

Saturday was another 90 degree day around here.  Lillie was dropped off at a friends house as she is at Silverwood theme park in Idaho for the weekend!  Preston went out with friends on the lake and then golfing afterwards.  Hansen and I went to an archery tournament.  And in the evening it was off to a baseball game!

This archery tournament (The Subway Games) was a warm up for next weekend's state tournament.  This (and next weekend's tournament) is one of the few tournaments we do that does not include walking all over a mountain side shooting all kind of strange shots.  Rather this one we do 30 shots at 60 yards, 50 yards, and 40 yards respectively.  Each shot is worth a max 10 points with rings going out from the middle with lower values.  It's called a 900 round.  What is really was, was a very long day in the heat shooting a ton of shots and scoring tons of arrows.  Next weekend we will do this each day for the state championships...with an even bigger crowd.  So, if you're interested in spectating, this may be a good weekend to come watch.
 After the day's events, it was off to Tacoma for an evening baseball game.  How about a Maren and Julian selfie?  It was a Breast Cancer awareness game, here Maren is sporting her pink hat they gave her at the gate.
Perfect night for a Tacoma Rainiers game.  Maybe too hot for some?  Folks were just wandering the stadium and sitting wherever.  The seats in the sun were mostly empty while those in the shade were full.
Yes, that is the Super Moon in the distance.  My camera doesn't pick up all the nuances that a nicer camera would, but trust me, the moon was huge!  And you could clearly see all the outlines and landmasses or whatever is on the surface off the moon.  In hindsight, we probably should have been looking out for werewolves on the drive home...

See you tomorrow.
