A Weekend of Baseball and Softball

Monday, May 16, 2016
The Astros (the mini version) had their first tournament this weekend, which also meant our first overnight trip for baseball! It wasn't too far from home, just on the other side of town...but in Houston the other side of Houston can be an overnight trip!! And especially b/c we had plans downtown already Saturday night and we had early games the second day of the tourney!

The boys didn't come home with the win, but to be fair it was the first time any of them had played coach pitch, too. I was so proud of the boys, though and excited to see Aaron hit off the coach pitch!

Our second game actually got rained out so we left early to head downtown for the 4th annual JJ Watt Charity Softball Classic...we go every year and it's always a blast!
We had amazing seats again this year - right behind the first base dugout. The kids literally were able to sit on the dugout and talk to the players and get autographs. Most of the players are so nice and generous with the kids.

I was happily surprised to see our former first lady throw out the first pitch, too - I thought that was pretty cool and I wish I'd had a shot of her Watt socks, too! LOL

We got most our autographs on daddy's Texans hat this year!

These ladies were sitting by us and pretty much adopted my children for the evening - LOL! I think they might've taken Aaron home with them if I would have let them! Watch out ladies - he's mine!
