Soccer, Sleepovers and Celebrations

We had a fun weekend (and not just because the girls stayed at my parents overnight ... but that did help) and stayed busy.  Saturday evening Chatty had a scrimmage with her new soccer team.  It was their first "game" and they played a team that is a year older than them.  Our team lost - but played tough!  We scored one goal and Chatty had the assist.

Then on Sunday Chatty and her friend A were asked to play up on an older team.  I wasn't sure how she would do but she held her own .. and had a lot of fun!  I guess it's official I am a soccer mom!

After the game we took the girls to Nana and Poppa's house for their sleepover.  Mr. ESPN and I ran some errands, watched a movie and went to a nice dinner.  What did we enjoy most?  The quiet ... no non-stop chatter from Bia and Chatty interrupting our conversation - it was lovely!  Thanks Nana and Poppa!

I remember spending many Saturday's at the soccer field when I was little. I would love to be a soccor Mom one day.

BTW...Vince's retaurant in Daytona is right off of 95. It is really big. They have a sports bar, piano lounge and a fine dining area. It is a lot nicer than any other place in that area. It was really good though. The white chocolate bread pudding is to die for!
