Fun Crazy Busy Weekends ~ Last Baseball Weekend of the Summer!

Well, this is it - our last weekend of baseball travel for the summer.  This trip was to Maryland, so it wasn't too bad since it was closer than the last two trips.  We left Friday afternoon and got to our hotel, The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Washington DC-Silver Spring, around 6.  We went up to our room and it was a king bed - that was a problem!  So I called the front desk and had to go back downstairs to be assigned to a new room. When we were finally settled in our room, baby girl changed to her bathing suit and we went to the pool for a bit.  We headed out for dinner at a Hibachi place with friends.  The area was great - so many people were out and there were so many places to eat!  So we ate, celebrated the birthday of one of the player's little sister, who also happens to be my baby girl's friend!  We went back to the hotel to have some birthday cake and then bed!

The next morning we checked out, yes we only stayed 1 night.  The chance of the boys advancing was very slim so we checked out and went to the first game of the day.

Game was a loss, and now we had several hours to kill.  We looked up the closest places to visit and Inner Harbor seemed like the best place to go.  Another 2 baseball families came along and it was so much fun.  This place was so nice and there were so many stores and places to eat!

We had a great time walking around, but the day was coming to an end and it was time to head out.  We stopped to play mini golf and then off to Harford Community College for the final game of the weekend.  My son pitched this game and he was so off this night.  Not sure what happened but he just couldn't focus so he didn't last long on the mound.

Well, the weekend didn't end with the Win we would've preferred but it was a nice weekend.  We packed it up and headed home.  I think it was about 1 am when we got home and we were all happy to be back home to sleep in our own beds!!

This is probably our last getaway for the summer and we did enjoy it.  I definitely would've liked to have done some sight seeing in DC but it didn't quite work out.  I would love to go back some other time to stop and check out the sights, but I knew going in that this was strictly baseball and that's what it was!

How have your summer weekends been?
