WARNING: This is going to be a long one.
So in the past few years, our family vacations have become centered around baseball. If I'm being honest, we just can't afford to do 2 vacations every summer. But, my kids never complain and don't seem to mind. They still love traveling, staying in hotels, and spending our vacation with our baseball family. Because that is what they've become. In fact, some of these boys have been playing together since they were 7 (5 years!). And their siblings...well, let's just say Bella has basically grown up on the baseball field alongside all of them.
Even when we spend every day trudging back & forth to baseball games in the heat (or sometimes the cold) with wagons loaded with chairs, coolers, snacks, and seeds, they still see it as a vacation. Time spent with friends and away from home.
This vacation, however, felt different. We definitely spent more down time at the hotel pool and beach, and got to do so much more. Myrtle Beach was such a blast.
I never get pictures of his home runs. I never take video when he's up to bat. It makes me too nervous. He hit another home run this past weekend at the Turf Wars in Maryland. This time, I remembered to start snapping when he crossed home plate. So glad I did. These are the images I live for. To see that smile on his face. So much pride. By the way, I love his teammates.
Cam spent his first week of Summer Vacation putting in work. The last day of baseball camp, they celebrated with a slip & slide party. They put down a large baseball tarp and hosed it down and just let the boys get wild. This little girl had to get in on the action, of course. But, she was a little nervous at first. Cam had to brag her with candy to get her to do it. After that, she kept going back for more.
Our Memorial Day weekend went a little something like this.....
We spent Saturday by the pool, Sunday at the beach with friends. It was a perfect, relaxing weekend with beautiful weather.
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, middle school, wine, video games, and schedules. I started this blog because I love taking pictures, and I needed a place to document our life. I wanted a place to write it all down, to remember little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
