It all begins and ends with baseball.
This was such a fun and memorable summer weekend for our baseball boys.
It didn't hurt that we won the tournament this weekend. The weather was great, hot but that's baseball weather so we can handle it (as long as there's no rain). Cam did very well hitting this tourney, going 7 for 11 at the plate.
We played in Currituck, NC. Day 1, we went 2-2. The second game had us on the edge of our seats. We were down 7-3 going into the bottom of the 4th inning. We finished the game 10-7.
Heading home, we got a group text from Coach inviting us all back to his house for an evening of pizza, drinks, and fun on the water.
We also got a group text that one of the Dads had broken down. Half of the team showed up to the rescue.
The rest of the night went a little smoother. The boys (and siblings) took turns tubing on the water. Afterwards, they played Taps, kickball, and jumped on the trampoline.
The little ones were a little nervous at first. They weren't sure about the water....
Eventually, they got comfortable but decided they weren't going tubing.
But, then....They did, and they loved it. And they even went back for seconds.
Day 2, we started as the second seed. We finished the first game with a W, 13-1.
To kill time in between games, we headed to the nearby Morris Farm Market for lunch and some free samples. It was such a cool little place. There was music and shade and ice cream.
They loved the apple cider.
Back to the field for game 2. We had made it to the championship and faced a tougher team. We were down 3-6, but history repeated itself and we came back. In the end, we won the game 8-6. Our boys played well.
Next stop, Myrtle Beach.
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.
There's a lot of build up to the yearly recital. Lots of work for these girls and their dance instructors. It's more sacrifice than meets the eye. Classes every week. Repetition. Hair. Makeup. Costumes. It's exhausting.
Bella's recital this year. She was in 2 shows and had 3 performances. And SHE ROCKED IT. All 3. I could not have been more proud. And now it's over. And I'm sad. It's kinda like Christmas.
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.
