We also got to go to a Cardinals baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Neither one of us are huge baseball fans but we love the atmosphere. The chants, the food, and just sitting in the stadium doing the wave are things that we like at baseball games. We had great seats, right by the Cardinals' pitcher warm-up area. The previous night the Cardinals lost to the Brewers 12-0 so in the 8th inning we decided to leave and head for home because the Cardinals were losing. The next morning we heard on the news that the game was great in the last two innings and the Cardinals ended up winning 5-3. Even though we missed the best part, we still got to see a homerun and eat some nachos. We had a great time with our friends and it was nice to act like we were from Missouri again.
We had a great two weeks with friends and family...and the best thing was I got to spend two weeks with Jason--and no school stress! We flew back to the island August 31st to start our 4th semester on the island. Time really does fly when you are having fun--we miss our friends and family terribly, but we'll be home soon!
