Baseball and memories

We spent all day at the ball park on Saturday and to be totally honest, I had a blast.  I've mentioned my previous boredom with the game of baseball, but now to watch my child and his teammates playing... it is so much fun!  And, of course, I can't help but cheer for them all!

(yes, that is my child putting up the peace signs, acting silly)

Now, when I say all day, I really mean all day... we left our house at 6:30 am to meet up with the team and grab some breakfast.  We arrived at the park a little before 8 am and were playing ball by 9 am. Fast forward all day through some perfect spring time weather and we left the park at 9:30 pm. The team made it to the semi-finals losing by only 3 runs. The kids played better and better as the day went on.

There were lots of breaks in between games... which made the day seem to last longer... at times.  These kids are all the same age, 7, and their energy is limitless.  All the parents would try to get the kids to rest between games which ended up usually only lasting long enough for them to eat.  Then they were up and running again right up until time to take the field again.  I was exhausted and I was just sitting and watching all day.

It was a fun, exhausting and perfect day!
