Baseball and Beer in Las Vegas

Doesn't that sound like a lot more fun than other things?

Husband and I had a MARVELOUS time visiting Dad and Stepmonster over the weekend.  Scientist Genius Brother flew in from Berkeley to join us at my insistence.  His ghostly pallor from working in his laboratory in the bowels of the chemistry building was making him look a little too much like a sparkly vampire.  Kid needs a TAN!

Saturday we went to see the Seattle Mariners play the Colorado Rockies for their last pre-season game at Cashman Field.  I *think* we lost 6-5 but due to the one or two margaritas I drank during the game that score may not be entirely accurate.

Tailgating in the parking lot before the game - Scientist Genius Brother, Stepmonster, Dad, Harley Davidson, the Perpetual Party Animal and me.

Scientist Genius Brother, Husband and the Perpetual Party Animal

Stepmonster and I.  With our margaritas.  Yummy!

Dad and Scientist Genius Brother at the post-game party at - where else - the Perpetual Party Animal's house!  He works with Dad and I am pretty sure that there is a party at his place every weekend.  At least there is every weekend that I've been in Vegas!

Before it got dark, Dad's estimating protoge and adopted son, Harley Davidson, gave me a ride on his Harley and HOLY SHIT it was AWESOME!  I'm pretty sure it is the closest thing to flying that I will ever get to do!  I am going to buy a motorcycle for Husband as soon as we get rid of, er...I mean, as soon as the kids move out.

It was a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to see everyone again!  Thanks y'all!

Three of my favorite things all in one place!! It doesn't get any better than baseball (unless, of course, it's the Cubs!) margaritas and Harleys!!! I LOVE me a ride on a Harley! I actually spent a summer as a "biker bitch" and it was one of the best summers of my life. It started a very serious addiction to motorcycle rides. ;-)

Looks like FUN! FUN! FUN! Sorry I missed it! After reading Shelly's blog about Laila's visit, I'm totally going to lobby for her to attend college on the east coast so you guys will have to make frequent visits! I miss you ALL. :(

OMG--William Sonoma--berry margarita mix--to DIE for! Let's get some & have a party! When's the next "blogging conference" for a select few of us???

Laughing that we used pretty much the same title in our blog heading without knowing it! Yo, the magaritas were small but we had a LOT of them! And I love Chuck's new name. I think that's what we should call him now. I will be posting pics on my blog after his Easter egg and beer hunt Sunday!
