#baseballwifelife 2015 is underway!

What an amazing weekend for the Brown's! Now that the first four games of the 2015 season are complete, I can officially say the baseball itch is gone! I took Friday off of work so I could fully enjoy the long weekend in Woodbridge, VA with friends and family watching D.J. play baseball. 
Thursday after work I got on the road around 4:30 and it took me about three and a half hours to get there.  Luckily I wasn't missing much (besides our friend Dylan pitch) because the weather was GROSS! Misty, cold and windy the whole night.  Good thing I brought my blanket and warm shoes. I didn't snap any photos that night simply because my fingers were numb. 

Friday we met up with D.J.'s sisters at IKEA and spent the day pretending we were remodeling our homes and wishing for everything in the store.  We grabbed lunch at Potomac Mills and walked through the mall.    
Jayden had a blast playing in the play area and it worked out well because we all got back to the hotel room and crashed until around 5:30 p.m.  D.J. had to leave for the field around 3:30 p.m. and we all got up and started getting ready to go....then D.J. called and said the game was cancelled because the lights at the stadium wouldn't turn on??

So we ended up having an unexpected date night with the in-laws and our bestie, Dylan Baker. 

Saturday morning I hit the gym while D.J. got his beauty sleep because the coaches called when we were at dinner Friday and informed him that he would be starting the second game of the double header on Saturday.  

It was a big day because Jayson Werth, outfielder for the Washington Nationals, was rehabbing with the P-Nats, which means D.J. would be pitching against him!!!! I am normally a very calm fan - I cheer and do the occasional "here we go Hillcats!" but this was a different situation. I was SO nervous for him and wanted nothing more than for D to strike him out. 

AND HE DID! This was probably the biggest day in D's career so far.  I know it may seem small to some players who have seen big league players in games before, but this was his first time playing against someone like this, so it was a big moment! 

On a side note - it has taken some getting used to seeing the guys in green and gold compared to the Mudcats black and red.  We were a hodge podge of Mudcats/Indians/JMU gear this weekend, but the one thing we all had in common was 22.  So glad to see that number come back to D.J. 

We had to do whatever it took to keep the littles occupied during the games! Thank goodness for toys and bottles!

Attempt #1 at taking a cute photo...

 #2 is much better!

So glad Kendall and Brad were able to drive down and grab dinner with us after the games on Saturday.  Going to miss them when they move to NY in May!

My attempt at making D.J. closer to my height.  It's a lost cause y'all.  I'm short - he's tall. I gotta embrace it!

We had lots of friends visit for the game on Saturday, including this little boy, Cameron, whose parents are friends with my brother and sister in law! I'm obsessed with this picture!

My love. 

Isn't he going to make the best dad one day?

Sweet Myla.

What a great weekend with friends and family! It was so good to see D.J. do what we loves for a living.  I love being able to stand by his side and we are so fortunate to have him so close.  I cannot wait till June when I can be a full time employed wife by day and full time baseball wife by night!
