Saturday, Baseball & SUN

Hi all!
I hope you're having a fabulous weekend.
As you know James' baseball season is in full swing.
With games starting in April,
our coach wanted to get in a little extra practice.
He scheduled a couple of scrimmage games for Saturday.
Which was wonderful for me.
It was too gorgeous outside to spend my day cleaning.
Which is exactly what I would have guilted myself into doing. ; >

We started our day by all sleeping a little late.
Andy did yard work,
and might I add did a mighty fine job.
The boys worked in their rooms,
which is a never ending task.
While Mama did a little ADD house spiffing special.

We showered, dressed, packed up some snacks,
picked up a friend and headed off to play ball.
We played out in the county
so the facilities weren't the greatest.
Let me tell you that first team had it going on.
Our tired, sun wilted boys got spanked!
No worries though,
after a snack and pep talk,
they were ready to go again.
They won their second game 16-7.
Hooray for going out with a victory!

I gotta tell ya that after playing Saturday's games
our kids are gonna be ready for anything!

Here's James in all his catching glory.

Remember last year when he called it
being the BEHIND CATCHER?! :)

Now here's the best part.
Since our coach is a good friend
and his family are our vacationing buddies,
we took the opportunity to enjoy a good dinner together.
It was quite a drive but well worth it.
We devoured dinner at Top Of The River.
Fried catfish, shrimp scampi & crab claws.

On a side note:
Sunburn, dehydration, exhaustion
and fried foods DO NOT mix.
This sweet Mama ended up with
a version of dinner in her bed last night.
James response,
"Mama, those fried pickles didn't taste so good that time."
Poor fella's feeling a little better this morning.
We stayed home from church just in case.
No need to share that kinda love!

Thanks for stopping by for the recap
of our Saturday, Baseball & SUN.
Have a beautiful day! :)
