Ball Parks Near and Far

Guess who played at our hometown park vs. the twins' team?
Another cousin!  Brooke!
 Our girls wore their shorts last week because it has been HOT++.   We haven't had rain in over a month (okay a few drops, but not enough to wet the ground) and temps have flared into the high 90s and low 100s!!

 A few weekends ago, Cy's godfather Uncle Brian and Aunt Mary Kay took Cy and cousin Gabe to see Kaleb's team play in Schaumburg, Illinois.  Cy (back right, in yellow shirt) and Gabe (far back left, in black shirt) were chosen to compete against another pair of boys in a 7th-inning-stretch contest!

 The object was to throw as many water balloons as possible into the helmet on your partner's head.  Cy threw and Gabe was the wet recipient.
 The boys actually won this contest!  The prize was 4 tickets to another Boomers game.  The best part was that the Boomers won, and Kaleb got into pitch that afternoon!

We hear it's a really nice stadium for an independent league team.  To think, my nephew is one step closer to his goal of playing in the major's pretty cool.  Grandpa is watching and smiling from up above ;)
Up this week: a mere 5 games plus one tournament.  I shan't complain, as we just had 6 whole days OFF from baseball and softball!!  I didn't know what to do with myself all those nights home.  Seriously, I had almost forgotten how to prepare a healthy supper where you actually sit down as a family and eat together at the same time.  It's really quite a lovely concept.  Maybe we can try it again sometime before Christmas.
