Let's Par-Ta!

Yesterday was Brendan's end of the season baseball party. They had their last regular season game on Friday night, and even though play-offs start on Tuesday, we had the party on Saturday! They had a good season, lost more games than they won, but they had fun none the less and even learned a little! This was the first season for most of the players to be on a kid-pitch team. Brendan played for the Cubs and while on the field was either playing 3rd base or in left field. He knew his strike zone very well and when he wasn't slugging one past the 2nd baseman, he either walked or was pegged with the ball (way too much for my taste, but welcome to the world of kid-pitch!). And he was great at stealing bases too! Next year Colin will join his brother up in the Minors (Colin played coach-pitch on a farm team) and Ryan will be their coach!
This was my contribution to the party. One of the parents opened their home for the party, which was pot luck. The baseball cupcakes were a huge success!

The afternoon started at noon and with lots of jumping...first in the trampoline...

...and then in the pool!

Water gun fights to follow!

And don't forget about the food!

The party continued with Wii, bean bag toss, football, and water baseball! The night ended with, what else, but more jumping!!

Even though baseball consumed most of my spring nights, I wouldn't want it any other way!

Here's to a great season!
