  • Baseball trip is fun for all of us, not so sure about others

    Last weekend was the annual Aldridge baseball trip made by my daughter, Amanda, sister, Sarah Jane, brother, John, nephew, Jeremy and me.  This was the third annual trip and probably the most uneventful. 

    We left Friday, drove to Pittsburgh, went to Cleveland on Saturday and back home Sunday. It was quite a quick trip but fun and interesting. 

    The first year we traveled to New York City and Philadelphia. Last year we went to Mecca (St. Louis) and this year to the two cities already mentioned.
