Training, Game #1 and the Prado

The next morning the boys went to training again at the Atletico training complex. Christine (the goalie’s Mom —  I have known her for a few years since our boys have played on the same teams for 4 years —- but I loved getting to know her so much more in depth. Love her!) and I headed out to spend the morning at the Prado museum. We took the train in, and had a great time wandering according to my book’s guide. We also walked through the botanical gardens:

We made our way to a little local restaurant for lunch, but without knowing Spanish, ended up with a cheese sandwich and potato omelet sandwich! We headed back to the hotel where the boys were resting up and then we headed out to their first game.

I know there are a lot of soccer pics, but I sat through a lot of soccer – so this is nothing!! They ended up tieing 2-2. It was neat to head out to the suburbs to see their soccer fields.

Love the intensity in Josh’s face in this one^^^ I can’t believe how grabby he is too! Everything happens so quickly in real life that I don’t really notice – but when I saw these shots, I was surprised!

Not very happy that they tied:( He plays to win! ^^^


We had a nice dinner at the hotel and headed to bed, completely exhausted, but a great day!
