Our Final Volleyball Match for the Season

The girls and I last night headed to watch our last volleyball game for the 2013/2014 season to cheer our “adopted” kid Rachael Adams & the another American Kim Hill who we have become friends with over this past season play against each other in the Polish Women’s Volleyball Championship for the bronze medal.  The first 2 games are in Sopot/Gdansk and the other 3 are down in Dabrowa.  These games are only a 2 hour drive away and Dabrowa is about 6 hours away so we went to the much closer one!

Let's get this game started!

We had to swing by Rachael’s hotel to pick something up which was right on the beach so we did a 5 minute break to burn off some energy after the 2 hour drive there.

Oh, did mention we had to do some IKEA shopping to since we were in the area? I still can't get over the fact that we are so close to the Russian border.

If only it was just 5 minutes to play at the beach it was so worth it!

I LOVE the beach but my shoes stayed on no matter how much sand go in them as it was to cold for bare feet.

Love the fact that these 2 can have a Polish conversation with anyone! Time for some bowling in the kids fun zone.

I think they spent at least 30 minutes bowling.  The poor guy was having one heck of time coming up with different ways for them to bowl.

Yet another way to do it!

Since the game was midweek and a early game, we were I am pretty sure the only Dabrowa fans there.

Poor "A" she wasn't sure which team to cheer for as she didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings.

Definatly not like a baseball  game where you get to keep the balls if you catch them.  We would have hit the jackpot last night and brought home at least 2 of them if we could have.

We are going to miss these 2 when they had back to the US to play the summer!

Another great day with my girls here in Poland.

If you could meet 1 Olympic athlete who would it be?
