About Me

My photo
I am a Christian. I am a loving wife to my Army-National-Guard-Recruiter-Husband of 15 years. I am a stay-at-home-mother to our four handsome sons. I am a photographer. My blog is about as erratic, eclectic and random as I am, painted with rainbows of photos and words that are hills and valleys you travel; so lovely sometimes that they hurt you. These are the stories of how far we've come in the last 15 years as Christians, as a family and as individuals.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

In the previous post I mentioned that we bought tickets to the local Maverick's baseball game to support Discovery's K-Kid's cause.  Well, here are some photos of the fun we all had while there with half the town!!
Wooly Bully was signing autographs...
So the boys lined up!
Tristen & Garrett got their hands signed.
Seth got his shoe signed!
Hayden got his shirt signed!
(good thing it wasn't one of his "better" ones-they did not have permission for that!)
The boys spent the majority of the game standing in line at the consession booths or rolling down "the great hill" (sorry, no picture of that) with their school friends.

After the game they got to run the bases!
Just as they rounded third, Garrett shot out like a bullet! 
And ended up beat both Seth AND Hayden to home plate!
Tristen had injured his ankle rolling/running down "the great hill" so he wasn't going to run the bases, until he saw how much fun it was for his brothers!  He decided that he'd give it a try!
He took his time, limping a bit but he made it all the way around.
All the kids who ran the bases got an "Elementary Achievement Certificate" to Jack in the Box for a FREE kid's meal! ("Save your money for college" was written on them)
All-in-all it was a great night!  Thanks, Discovery, for getting all six of us out of the house as a family for under $50!!!  And what a (tripple) nice treat... the proceeds went to amazing causes and we even got dinner for the boys out of it (we'll spend those gift certs wisely and have another family outing some other time)!

What fun! That just sounds so cool! (Yes, with a family of 6 it's hard to do anything that doesn't cost a fortune. - I totally understand!)
