Well, the weekend is over and it was devoted almost totally to Tyler and Cameron. They had a busy weekend and we did what we could to help them and watch them. Saturday morning, we went over to pick up Tyler to take him to the high school for a couple of band concerts at the "Duck Derby". Kim and Jeremy had taken Cameron to Katy for a baseball tournament.
We went to the Duck Derby, but the weather certainly didn't cooperate! It wasn't all that cold, at about 55 degrees, but the wind just went right through us. There were lots of younger kids there, having their faces painted and playing games and everyone seemed to be having a good time. We saw concerts by the mariachi band and the jazz band that were good. Tyler plays the guitarone in the mariachi band and the baritone sax in the jazz band. He plays very well and is now thinking about college and a music degree. We are all proud of Tyler for his musical abilities and wish him well in his future.
Sunday was Cameron's day. We left here early on Sunday morning to make it for his 9:00 start for his first game. Unfortunately, we didn't make it for most of the game, but they won 8-4 and continued on with the tournament. He is much happier on this team than he was with the local teams in Texas City. The coaches seem to be training the boys better than the locals did.
We met our friends Bill and Alena for lunch at the Red Robin that is near the sports complex. When Tyler heard the words Red Robin, he was all over that! He loves that place, so we took him with us. Kim and Jeremy took Cam to Subway, the athlete's restaurant, so he wouldn't have too much to eat since he had to play more games in the afternoon. We had a nice meal with our friends and it was good to catch up with them.
We went back to the ball field for the next game, which they won. Since it was getting late in the day, we had to go home to take care of our puppies, and Tyler wanted to go home to take care of their dog, so we took him with us when we left.
We later learned that Cam lost the game after we left and were out of the tournament, but they came in 3rd overall. Cam made some good plays and we are all proud of him. I just wish he'd been able to play a little closer to home.
