A weekend of Softball and Relaxation

We had a fantastic weekend!  Saturday started off early ~ 6am.  Sassy had a day long softball tournament about an hour away so we woke up some sleepy kiddos, ate some breakfast and headed out.  Her coach, who is also her Dad :)  has the team arrive about an hour early for warm ups.  Anyway, I knew it was going to be a long day out in the sun, so while they were doing their pre-game warm ups before the first game Action, Smiley and I hung out in the car, reading and playing with the iPad.

Then we were onto the games ~ they ended up playing 4 games and going 2-2.  The girls played really well. Sassy mostly played in the catcher positon, but also played 3rd, left field and had a couple of innings as pitcher.  She did really well, striking out a handful of girls.

this is probably my favorite picture of the weekend!)

Yesterday, Mother's day, we went to church, took the boat out, hit a lakeside restaurant for Bloody Mary's and appetizers, came home and relaxed.  It was a beautiful, relaxing day spent together as a family!

How was your weekend?

That sounds like a great weekend Wendy! Glad to hear you had a nice and relaxing Mother's Day! I also love that moment you captured of dad/coach with a pep talk! :)

A kid on our baseball league got hit in the temple with a hit and could have died so they bought that same face mask for our players too...well that lasted about 1 week.

Some coaches stopped making their kids wear them so then their pitching was better and soon all the kids trickled off wearing them. Drives me crazy - safety is not first, winning is. :(
