We spent a few minutes walking around the Welcome Center and had a little bit of fun =)
and had a little bit of fun =)
We even now know where to go when we hit the lottery, ha!
Then back on the road in the rain - The game at 3 ended up getting moved to Saturday morning which meant we would play two games then. Chase had a little mishap at the hotel -
which meant he needed a new phone. Aren't cell phones the same as oxygen these days?! An absolute must. He took it upon himself to go to the Verizon store and work out a deal. I do have to say they were awesome! Ronnie and I stopped there first to thank them and upgrade my phone since I was due and it was causing some problems. We left there with two upgrades and an iPad, paying $45 and a monthly bill that is still about $40 less. Like I said......everyone at this corporate store was awesome!
According to the employees at Verizon, Fat Paddy's is the place to get a good burger. And to be even better, it is in the hotel parking lot. The buffalo chicken dip, onion rings and burgers were perfect.
Then off to bed since we had to be up early for the games since we were playing some top teams in the State. Hurricane is number 1 and the defending 2014 State Champs. Wheeling Park I think is #5. Whew.
We arrived at the park with the sun shining and the field of turf gorgeous.
And the Hurricane family?! We were greeted with coffee and donuts then fried chicken, pork bbq, desserts, salads.....a full meal was provided for ALL. Definitely a first class event.
Our team played tough and pulled off a win - 5-0 against Wheeling Park. The second game was a little harder but again, Jefferson won 4-3. Wow - against Hurricane. That was a great win. Two great wins. It's always nice to head into an 8 hour drive with wins. That puts Jefferson with a 7-0 season so far. Pretty Cool.
And also pretty cool was to hear Chase's name called as they listed the starting players for game two.
He has had to work hard to play. While it's difficult to watch as a parent, having to work for something you want really bad makes it mean so much more. We are very proud of him to say the least.
And then south bound we went. Somewhat of a caravan - Garmin says we will arrive at 11:03 p.m.
