Before we left for Savannah I asked little man what he wanted us to bring back.
“Do they have a baseball team?”
“They actually do.”
“What are they called?”
“The Savannah Sand Gnats.”
“I want a Sand Gnat hat.”
I figured this would be an easy enough request to fulfill. Surely oodles of places would sell Sand Gnat gear. I was so wrong. Becky and I spent an hour in a local mall looking for a hat before we located a fitted black one that was ten sizes too big for Mason and costs $40.00. Of course we bought it because we were not going back to Monticello empty-handed.
On our way out of town we stopped by River Street to pick up some candy and t-shirts. The first shop we walked into had a green Sand Gnat hat (adjustable) and a matching shirt. Long story short, we picked up both, returned the overpriced fitted hat, and had a very happy little boy when we arrived home. Later that afternoon we played baseball in the backyard. Mason wore his Sand Gnats gear and beamed from ear to ear.
