Nats Game & Airshow

A few weeks ago, Cody came home with Nationals Tickets. We were so excited to take Cason to his first MLB game and to support our 3rd favorite team! (Of course the Rangers are #1 and the Stros are #2.) The tickets were in the nosebleed section, BUT the tickets were free thanks to the CGOC. Thanks guys! The view and weather were great, and we had an absolute blast. It went into the 12th inning (if I remember correctly)- and sadly the Nats lost by a run. We left at the top of the 12th- it was late and our munchkin was asleep. Baseball games are probably our most favorite thing to do. Cason loves the games and just laughs while we try to explain it to him. 
We found out that we have a local team, The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, that plays right down the road from our house. They have fireworks after their weekend games- and since Case had such a good time with the firewords at his first minor league game in Jersey, we figured we would start going to the local games pretty regularly. (I'm hoping all the exposure will make Cason want to play baseball! Cross your fingers!)
The morning after the Nats game, we went onto Andrews AFB to see the Airshow. The base hosts the airshow annually and it's the biggest airshow in the Nation. It was awesome! Cason LOVED the noise and seeing the planes in the air. We walked around looking at all the air-crafts and taking plenty of pictures. I was very grateful for my husband's connections that day. Since he works with the COMM group on Andrews, we were able to get shuttled into the Airshow and have front row seats to the action under a large tent. (Yay shade!)
 Cason and I were able to meet a lot of the men and women that Daddy is about to start working with, and they are all really great people. Cody is getting transferred this week- and actually starts working with his new group tomorrow! He's going from running ~30 people to being in charge of over 100. He has been doing a phenomenal job, and I'm so excited to watch him grow and succeed in his new position. I'm one extremely proud wife! My husband rocks!
