Opening Day

Take me out to the ball game, take me out to crowd.

Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks.....

It's baseball season! America's favorite past time.

Saturday was opening day.

R4 played his first game ever. I have to say he w
as stinkin' cute! At his age they don't really keep score.

Each child gets to hit and run the bases and cross home plate.

And when in the field, it looks more like what my dad calls tackle t-ball. R4 ran after ever ball hit no matter what position he played. And even better it looked like a dog pile when some one finally got the ball and all of the kids fell to the ground on top of one another.

R8's games are a little more competitive that than. It's down right serious.

And while I am all for some competitiveness I keep in mind that these are just 7 and 8 year olds. Kids, little boys.

It's not the major leagues and it's not the world series.

Who am I kidding, knock it out of the park R8!!! Look alive behind the plate!!!

We ended up spending all day Saturday at the ball park. R4 had a game at 10:30 and then R8's first game was at 2pm. I think we came home for about 2 hours only to go right back. We didn't get home until almost 8pm.

The weather was perfect and everyone had a great time.

Oh yes I had my stash of pickle flavor sunflower seeds. I was so classy sitting in my chair with a mouth full of seeds. Which are all gone and need to be replaced soon.

Here are a few pictures from opening day...Now PLAY BALL!

Tee ball is the cutest thing ever! My son just moved up to modified ball...he gets three pitches from a coach and if he can't hit that then one chance from the tee.

His first game is next week...I'm pretty darn excited!
