This weekend was fun and funny. Lawyer had his first T-Ball game on Friday night and it was COLD! It had been around 70 on Friday around 3:00 and within a few hours, it had dropped to about 45, cloudy and VERY windy...which put the windchill probably somewhere in the low 30's.
The picture above pretty much summed up how we all felt throughout the game. We all wanted to cry and Lawyer did a good job of that the ENTIRE game! He literally cried going up to bat, running the bases, fielding the ball and sitting in the dug-out. Lawyer is obviously not a cold-weather sort of guy...he likes water, sand, sun and the beach. And he comes by that honestly with both Jason and I as his parents.
Anyhow, the "officials" (aka parents) finally called the game because it was getting colder and colder.
Lawyer hit the ball pretty well but his method of running the bases were hysterical.
We can not understand for the life of us, why he wanted to keep running to third base first when he played pre-tball all last year and knows to run to first, well, first. When he would get to 3rd base and the coaches would tell him to run to home plate, he would run to the pitcher's mound and then first and then he would run to home. Good times.
You can see the coach looking at Lawyer while pointing to home plate. I like how Lawyer and his teammate both end up getting to home plate at the same time.
The Opening Day Parade and all games on Saturday ended up getting cancelled due to the cold and wind...fine by me! I'm a fair-weather girl.
Sunday ended up being beautiful. Jason got our outdoor speakers installed (thanks Dad!) and we all literally spent all day (and a lot of the night) outside. We ate our lunch outside, we read and ate popsicles on the new chaise lounge, the yard got mowed and vegetables/plants got watered.
And the best part of all was that it was Movie Night in our backyard. Jason pulled out the ol' trusty TV and all three of us piled onto the chair to watch Madagascar 2 and Peter Pan.
These are such wonderful things that we do as a family that I just know that I will hold them dear to my heart. I pray that Lawyer holds onto these memories as well when he gets older and possibly has movie night with his own family, because that's what he did when he was a kid.
