Week in Review

A weekend that felt like five days and they were all amazing is hard to come by, but that was this weekend for us. It was just an incredible weekend, one that doesn't happen often. I mentioned in my last post that the boys games were rained out on Wednesday night. N's was reschedule for Friday night. So off the school bus and on to the field it was. Two families that we're good friends with came to cheer on the team which was unbelievably sweet and made T and KC super happy to have people to play with during the evening. The team won and moved on to play Saturday morning (it's a double elimination tournament in which we lost our first game so we've worked our way through the loser's bracket). T's game was also schedule for Saturday morning. So after leaving the field around 8:30pm Friday night, the boys were back at it at 8am Saturday morning. N played first and he had an amazing game. He'd been in such a hitting slump but had two awesome hits and caught a line drive at second (in addition to his normal play at first). Kids can only play a certain position four innings (except pitchers are limited to 2) so N plays 1st base for 4 innings and then second base. The team is in the championship game tonight but will have to win twice to win it all (and playing the team that sent us to the loser's bracket).

Midway through N's game Chris and T had to leave for T's game. Chris is also the assistant coach. I stayed to watch the rest of N's and cheer him on, but could hear cheering from T's side of the field. When I made it over, T's team was up 3-0. But it was tied up in the 6th (which is normally the end), so we played on. T plays first base and had a major stretch and scoop to get an out right before the other team would have scored to end it. To end it all, one of our players hit a homerun and the game was over! T's team won their division championship and they were so excited. It was such a sweet sweet team.

 KC wasn't as thrilled spending this day at the field... 

T's end of season party was scheduled for 1pm, but with the extra innings no one made it over there until closer to 1:30pm.  After a long day on the field, the kids got any extra energy they had out at a trampoline park. Then we spent the rest of the day ordering the kids to watch tv and rest (with some neighborhood playing in there too). 

We ended our day with our final picture with 2 year old KC, chocolate faced and being goofy. 

And we woke up to 3 year old KC! So hard to believe that this girl is THREE!
 I ran to grab wrapping paper after she went to bed and my go to place (home goods) had one roll left of this adorable popsicle print, perfect for this girlie who only wanted "candy" for her birthday).

All the grandparents arrived and even our special neighbor who comes to "play" and help with KC brought her a present and spent the day with her. KC was overall pretty tired (we had terrible thunderstorms during the night that kept her up for at least an hour) and very opposed to having her picture taken, but she had a great day.

We took our picture at 4:14pm to celebrate the time we first met 3 years ago! A tradition in our family. KC was all about making faces for the camera.

We ended the day at The Pancake House for KC's requested strawberry pancakes. They brought them out with sprinkles and a candle. Today we will be taking it easy and playing with friends, and maybe, if it doesn't rain, heading back to the baseball field.
