Okay, so I had to make my five year old cry……

I picked him up at school, and went to get some lunch. I decided to call my brother one last time before heading to the airport and get a weather status. The weather website looked like they had copy and pasted…..53 degrees, 90% chance of thunderstorms….all over the next three days at least in the BayArea. So I called….and was informed it had not stopped raining since he got into his office three hours before. Not a good sign. Should I take the chance and fly up there? I decided against it. Even IF they don’t call the game for rain, it would not be a pleasant experience. Soggy, cold, wet, uncomfortable.

So I had to tell Ryley…..no airplane flight today, no big baseball game today. And those huge crocodile tears just started rolling down his little face as it crumpled in devastation. I wanted to cry too. I had been looking forward to today for months! And now we have to put it off for another day. Thankfully, I got full credit back on our flights, and can use that anytime up until next March, so I think we’ll be good. It’s just so sad. My day that normally seems like a holiday is crushed by rain. So sad……….
