More Baseball

Jack had another baseball game yesterday in the sweltering heat but we had a surprise for him that we knew he would LOVE. Before the game Ella had to get prepared with her summer outfit and shades!

 The game started as usual...hanging at third base.
 Owen doesn't know what is coming either.
 Getting ready to hit a grand slam!

 Back in the field at short stop...wait a minute, what is that over there?!?!
 Excited because he saw his surprise!
 There is the surprise! Aunt Sarah and Aunt Becky came to the game! All three kids were SO EXCITED!!!

 One happy kiddo!

 Love this!
 Ella had to get back to running up and down the hill. Priorities.
 Finally out of the field to see his Aunts!!!

 Still on the hill.
 Jack and Aidan.

 Still excited!
 Still on the hill.

Aunt Becky gets to hang out with us for a few days before heading back to Madison. We can't wait!!!

Noodle Fun

I got this idea out of a magazine and decided the boys might like it. We used pool noodles and duct tape to make this contraption and then used stakes to stand it up in the grass so they could throw balls through the holes. They were loving it yesterday afternoon once we got it put together!

Jack's First Baseball Game

Two days after Owen's last day of baseball, Jack had his first game of the season. It happened to also be their week for a double header. We knew we were in for a long night! Here is his team huddling before the first game.
 The Whales!
 Ella causing trouble :)
 The first inning Jack was on the bench. Very exciting!
 Waiting to bat.
 Here he goes!

 Running the bases like he stole something!!!

 Made it!
 A little work in the field.

 Ella thought it was funny!

 Waiting to bat. I love all their bobble heads in a row!
 Back in the field.

 Hitting again.

 That is the first base coach telling him to go to second! That's right, my boy hit his first double!!!

 Jack was totally done about half way through the second game but Coach Kevin got him through it!
 Are we done yet?!?! Yes! Time for ice cream!!!
