Men’s Volleyball World Championship

Last night for the us was AMAZING again for my girls and I!

Why?  We got tickets to this!

Woo Hoo!!

Woo Hoo!!

For those of you not in Poland or not a volleyball fan, this was a ticket for the Poland vs. Brazil men’s volleyball game.  World Championships this year for the men is being held here in Poland in a couple of weeks, so many of the games are already being played before the final games here in Poland.

I had done something for someone over this past couple of months that I did not think was that big of a deal but to them I guess it was, so they got tickets for all of us as a surprise to say “Thanks”!  Yes, the last 2 years we have turned in a volleyball family, thanks to our “adopted” family member Rachael.  This was one of the best thank-you gifts that I think I have gotten.

The over priced face painters were there for this game.  This has got to be one heck of a business at 10 zloty for a flag that takes 10 seconds to do.

This guy is the hometown favorite.  He is from right here in Bydgoszcz.  By the looks of it the referee did not fall his innocent looks.

Unfortunately Brazil won last night by quite a bit but it still was one heck of the game.

Since we had to wait for a few hundred other cars to leave the parking lot, why not waste some time rolling down the hill?  You know you did the same as a kid!

All I can say about last night…WOW! I am now even more looking forward to watching the World Championships here in a few weeks. They are going to be awesome!

I know the World Cup for football(aka soccer) is going on in Brazil as well right now too, so who are you cheering for?  Or course I am cheering for the US but deep down I am saying…”HUP, HOLLAND, HUP”!

love kelley
