Waterballoon baseball

R1's baseball team only has a few practices left before we go to the World Series.

And normally on Sunday's they practice is full uniform in the heat of the day. But today the coach made and exception and let them practice in shorts and shirts. I have to say I even like their practice uniforms. Even though we aren't playing a game, they still look like they are.

The coach thought he might turn this into a fun practice for the boys.

They played home run derby and then some game where he had the boys throw from center field and try to make it into a trash can at home plate. R1 was the first one to do so and I was one proud mama.

When that was over, the parents got to play against the kids. The boys had to play backwards. Bat opposite of what they normally bat. I have to say it was hilarious!

I even layed down a good bunt and got on first. But the best part was watching me throw right handed. I'm a completely left handed person and the only extra glove that R1 had was a left handed glove so I had to use it. I threw the ball almost straight up. I never laughed so hard at my self. Guess it's a good thing I can laugh at myself.


When that game was over the boys played water balloon baseball. Hubs filled up about 50 water balloons and then pitched them to the boys.

They had more fun. And R1 decided he was going to drop his bat and catch the balloon instead of hitting it. Once he did so, he threw it back at Hubs.

Needless to say the boys were soaking wet. But they had a blast.

And that was all that mattered.
