Father’s Day and a Break + Surprise
Baseball starts in March, you get one glorious unpaid month of Spring Training. The season starts in April and they play until September or October. There are a couple off days every month, but most of them are travel days, or the day after a seven hour, overnight road trip.
There is one exception though, this thing they call the all-star break. You’re talented, lucky, and have great things going for you if you make it, but it’s also pretty glorious if you don’t make it. See, the all-star game is a three day event, which means if you aren’t on the team, you get three days off. Three days to get out of town, to spend with family, forget about baseball, regroup, and do whatever you want!
So, today we celebrate Father’s day (Father’s Day Blog Post: http://mommyonthemound.blogspot.com/2015/06/dad-father-pop-papa-grandpa-daddy-dada.html) , and we get three days away from baseball. After the game, we are heading to Knoxville, and tomorrow we will make our way to Gatlinburg. We plan to see the Great Smokies National Park, go to Dollywood, a possible dinner show, and relax!
Stay tuned to hear more about our all star break trip!
