Fall Ball is in Full Swing

We've move deep into Fall Ball and I couldn't be more excited about this team!! Our boys are playing so well and it's so great to see them all grow and develop in this sport!

I was a super proud mommy this past weekend. Aaron has been playing mostly 3rd base and he is really doing so well. He got player of the game Saturday after getting what he calls "laser throws to first" to get numerous outs! I think I got pics of at least four of them from Saturday, too!!

They ended up in a tie on Saturday, which is actually great as we played the only other undefeated team and both teams brought their game! The defense for both was on point and it was truly one of those most exciting games we've been to...they all played great and we'll take the tie!

Good game boys!

Camping at Rayburn Park

I think this has to be one of my favorite spots to camp! It's just beautiful at this park and we always have a blast! This time we had SEVEN RVs all lined up together full of family to camp! What fun memories for our family. The kids will always remember these times!


We fished, skied, swam, cooked out, played games, had a backgammon tournament, rode bikes, watched movies outside on the side of one of the RVs, had birthday celebrations, and even had some puppies born while we were camping...and just enjoyed our family time together!


Here are a few pics from the trip - honestly, I didn't really take many pics this trip! I guess I was just more focused on being with these people!!

Camping Memorial Weekend

I took off Friday this past weekend to give us a long four-day weekend to enjoy some family time. We set off for the Colorado River with my niece and her family and my parents (who went up ahead of us on Tuesday). It turned out to be great weather - there was a storm coming in that kept it over cast and a little cooler. We managed to avoid the rain till the last night after we went to bed - blessed it worked out so well!

We spent a lot of time in the water, exploring trails, swinging from vines like Tarzan, grilling (we even had a sausage cook-off), and of course a lot of fishing! I think my son likes to fish more than his daddy does!!! LOL

This little beauty had so much fun! This was her 2nd camping trip with her Aunt Hanna - she loves me!

We found a bird next on one of the trails...all the babies were gone, though.

Deer were everywhere! And the park left all the grasses tall so the babies could hide.
