T Ball Tournament Weekend!

After our busy week we had a T Ball Tournament that started on Friday the 10th. It was our last hoorah for baseball this summer! Friday night we had one game, it was a double elimination tournament so you had to play ALOT of games. Friday night we won our first game!! After, we headed to our usual Posado's for some yummy dinner. It was a late night and we had a big Saturday ahead of us!!

Cute boys!!

Jack and Logan (unofficial team mates) HA!!

We were up bright and early Saturday for a LONG day of baseball!! My wonderful husband volunteered his time and our tents, and helped the league set up and get ready for the tournament. I love Ryan, he so knows me and what I love. He had a tent set up for our team at each field we played at, we even had a big fan to keep us cool!! He is SO GREAT!!!

Jack ready to chalk the field, silly boy!!
Great game Longhorns!

We won our second game on Saturday and then we had a bit of a break so we cooked lunch for the team and the families right there at the park. Like I said my husband know how to go first class!!

Big B and Jackers
Hotdogs and Fun times!!

Barrett & Cullen!

We won our third straight game! Go Longhorns!! We were the only undefeated team!

The boys finally got a little break, and we were able to go home and rest!! The heat was brutal, these poor boys had been playing scorching temperatures ALL DAY!! We came back and played another game, which we lost. We then had ONE last game, the Championship game!!

This game started late and both teams were just worn out!!! ALL the boys played their little hearts out!! We played forever and we remained tied!! It was getting so late, and the teams were so evenly matched that we were just scoring the same amount of runs over and over. Finally... Leslie, Kim and I decided that we were DONE!! These boys needed to get to bed at whatever the cost, HA!! All of our wonderful Coaches and Board members came up with the solution that we would be CO CHAMPS!!! It was the perfect ending to a long, HOT day!!!


My sweet boy! He had a great day!! 4 HOME RUNS!! We were SO proud of him!!

It was such a great way to end our tball season!! Yea LONGHORNS!! I would like to thank our Wonderful Coaches Rick, Ryan (my love) & Mark!! A special thanks too, to all the great Moms & parents!! I love being a baseball mom!!!

First week of June

Okay so this is a WEEK of postings, I can't even remember exactly what we did, HA!! I don't know if it is harder to blog during the school year or summer, but from the looks of things here it's summer! Just BUSY, BUSY..... I love it though!! So this will be like the week of June 6th for those that care and my scatter brain!!

Both boys had swimming lessons this week, here are my little fishes ready to learn!! My friend Katherine taught the lessons and the boys just loved her!

Jack's lesson was early and then we would break for lunch & then went back for Barrett's. Lots of running and no nap time for Jack made things less than ideal, but Jack did really well. I did have to get in the water with him, which I was less than thrilled about, HA!! On the first day Jack about gave me a heart attack. He loves to get on the side of the pool and jump in, so after the first class she let them have free time. Jack said he wanted to JUMP, so I put him out on the side and he jumped a few times. I set him on the side again and he proceeded to run to the deep end and climb on the diving board!! So I am swimming to the deep end, yelling at him to STOP, he is laughing and ignoring me!! I finally get him to come to the side and he jumps right in, so I am treading water, holding him, MAD & tired! HA!!! OH ME, that boy keeps me on my toes!!

Jack and I waiting for Barrett to finish his lesson.

Ashley & her boys had lessons with us, so one day she took Barrett and the boys to lunch at McDonald's while I had Jack's lesson. Such sweet boys!!
One day, (they are all running together) we took the boys to Splash Kingdom after lessons and they had a ball!!!!

I love this little daredevil, he wanted to do EVERYTHING the big boys did!!!

Jack and Asher!!

BIG NEWS!!! Barrett spent his first night away from home!!! After Splash Kingdom, Abram asked B to stay the night. Barrett told me he wanted to, and would stay the whole night! I agreed to let him try, thinking I would be getting a call to pick him up about midnight. WELL, no call!! He did it, I was so proud of him!! They had such fun eating junk food, playing on the water side and staying up late!!
Barrett, Abram & Asher!

Another night Ryan had to run to Sam's, so we all went to Tyler and then to Outback for a yummy dinner. We hadn't been to Outback in ages, it was really good, and I loved spending time with all my boys!!

Friday was our last day of swimming lessons and Barrett's "show off day". Jack and I loved watching Barrett do all his strokes and trying to dive off the diving board. They learned so much, I am proud of both of the boys!!

It was a BUSY, fun week!!! Love summer time!

Sleepover, Splash Kingdom & Last game!

On Thursday June 2nd Kamden came over to spend the night with us! The boys had a blast playing and getting dirt EVERYWHERE!! Let me just say, having friends over is great for Barrett, I'm pretty sure he went the whole afternoon without the usual nagging & complaining, HA!!

After a few changes of clothes and one dirty bathtub, Kamo and Barrett finally settled down and went to bed, we had a big day ahead! On Friday the boys wanted to go to Splash Kingdom. We were there bright and early waiting in line when they opened!

The boys had a blast sliding and floating the river! After the waterpark I tried unsuccessfully to get Barrett and Kamden to rest for their game, yeah that wasn't happening!! I would have loved some rest also, unfortunately I burned myself so bad that laying down was impossible, UGH!!

Friday evening we had our last T Ball game of the season!! It didn't seem like the season should be over yet. We had such a blast this year; great parents, great kids, & fabulous coaches!! The boys played great! Barrett had some great stops, he actually took one in the gut and caught the ball to make an OUT!!

It's no paci, but it seemed to do the trick!

Another great game!! Way to to play Longhorns!! We won our last game, a wonderful end to the season!

How cute is this! I love Kam's hand on Jack's head helment.
We ended our season with only one loss. The boys have come a long way and learned a ton! We had such a fun season!
We ended the night with yummy mexican food at Posado's!

It was a busy but FUN few days!!
