Our long-distance babysitter

Back in December, as I pondered what to buy Becky for our second wedding anniversary, I had a brainstorm: wouldn’t it be cool to get her (er, us) tickets to the Ron White comedy show on March 8 in downtown Knoxville? Becky’s a huge live comedy fan generally, and a Blue Collar Comedy fan specifically, so I knew she’d love it.

There was only one problem: by March 8 we’d have a two-month old, so we’d need a babysitter. And I figured new mom Becky wouldn’t want to entrust our brand-new little one to just any old babysitter. But I knew Loyette’s SHA-girl “aunties” all wanted to come visit at some point, so I figured maybe I could get one of them to come out that (i.e., this) weekend. I e-mailed Kristy, she enthusiastically agreed to come visit, and long story short, yesterday she flew in from Denver, and tonight she’ll be babysitting Loyette while Becky and I go out on out first real post-baby date.

You know your friends rock when they’ll fly in from 1,500 miles away to babysit. :) Anyway, here’s a shot of Loyette and her Aunt Kristy at the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame this afternoon:


P.S. Here’s a photo Kristy took of me blocking Becky’s shot at the Hall of Fame’s court:

    …and that is a photo of Aunt Kristy teaching Loyette that the Lady Vols are way better than the Huskies :)

    Dude, can’t you let the wifey take a clean shot? You afraid she’s gonna show you up? She’s only bearing your children, for chrissakes!

    Better watch out B-Man! Becky plays to win. She and Jen invented the game of tackle basketball!!!

    How was Ron White? He’s probably my favorite of the Blue Collar group, along with Larry the Cable Guy; I can only take so many redneck and “Here’s your sign” jokes.

    Hey Brendan,

    I know it’s been a while since we hung out but you guys do remember that we only live 20 miles away? If you guys need a night out Jay and I can always oblige :)

  9. Becky says:

    Heh. Thanks, Ashley. You’re definitely on our short list of potential babysitters. :) I just figured we could kill two birds with one stone by securing a) a babysitter for our date and b) a visit from one of Becky’s SHA girls, all in one fell swoop. :)

    Er, that comment was by me, not Becky. :)

    Looks like you guys are having a great time. I’m jealous! Hope you enjoyed Ron White.
