So... I lost the bet

 Nolan has been a fan for a long time... he got to "hear" the games while still in my tummy. He is wearing the jersey that I wore to one of the many games that we went to while I was pregnant with him.
 Cheering for our Texas Rangers... we kind of missed Texas a lot during all the games.

Our barn sporting the new Logo... the boys did a nice job (they didn't want to "copy" the logo exactly but wanted to show their support).

Two and a half years ago when we moved into this house, Brad and the boys tried to convince me that we needed to repaint the barn. They wanted to paint it with the Texas Rangers logo. I kept resisting and putting them off of that topic. As baseball season began, the "boys" once again brought up the subject of painting the barn. So, I said, "If... the Rangers ever make it to the World Series you can paint the barn." I never expected it would happen. I have been watching the Rangers since I was a teenager, and never once had they even made it close. ... As you all know by now, I lost that bet (maybe I should have said "when they win?!").

I love it! Umm, not that you lost the bet, but that you followed through and let them paint it AND that they did such a great job!
