{Five on Friday // Opening Day, Laughter, and other things}

Happy finally Friday!!! I'm not here today...because...

{O N E} 

IT'S O P E N I N G D A Y!!!! I love our tradition of going to opening day!! Hello spring, hello baseball and hopefully #hellowincolumn #gorangers

I wrote this last year on opening day...and man is it true! I just love being at the Ballpark!

There's just something unexplainable about tailgating from the parking lot looking at Ranger stadium and the anticipation of going in! And then once you're in there...oh man the atmosphere is unbeatable! The smell of ballpark food, the sound of the baseball hitting off the bat or into a glove, the hustle and bustle of everyone trying to find their seats, the plethora of red and blue shirts, the hootin' and hollerin, the rolling out of the American and Texas Flags, the National Anthem, the fly over, the game, God Bless America during the 7th inning, the fireworks that go off after a homerun, the dot race...I just love it.

Is there anything greater than a child's laughter?  I think not! This picture makes my heart swell and makes me so darn happy! Little boys are good for the soul. God knew what he was doing when he made me a boy mama.

It's no secret around here that Nathan and I are big time fans of the show Fixer Upper and Chip & JoAnna Gaines. I found this video while scrolling through FB the other day and highly recommend it. Makes me love them anymore. Love her testimony. Link here

I have a love/hate relationship with the app TimeHop. I love to see old pictures over the years...but it's also so bittersweet. It reminds me just how much of a baby Mason isn't anymore!! He's growing too fast. At least I have these sweet pictures, right?
