We are finally finished with this baseball season. Dillon's team was presented with a trophy for placing 2nd in their league for the season. Those were some happy boys and girls. This is the last year to play "coach pitch" for some of the players. The 8 year old kids will move up to "kid pitch." I have really enjoyed Dillon being able to be on this team this year. What a great group of kids we had this year!

The picture below is where we always were seated for the games. Shane called it the bull pen and I called it the play pen. This is a fenced in section for the pitchers to warm up in. At this age, we don't have the kids pitching, so we were able to sit right next to the dug out. It was good because Mallory had an area to play, but she couldn't get out of my sight during the game. It ended up being a popular place for the kids. One night we had over 10 little ones playing in the dirt building castles. That is the reason I called it a play pen.

They had an end of the year baseball party which included fishing, a big inflatable water slide, and swimming. The Ryal's hosted the party at their home and cooked hamburgers and hot dogs. Mallory and I had a "girls night" while the guys went to the party. I kind of wished we would've went, but I think Mallory deserved a night devoted to all things girly because she attended every one of her brother's games; whether she wanted to or not.....
The team was presented with an autographed baseball at the night of the party. Coach Patrick was able to get each player from the USM Golden Eagles baseball team to sign a baseball for each of the kids. I thought that was really nice of him!

Summer has officially begun! Who knows what exciting things we may get into this summer.....
