Weekend Update....with lots of good pictures!
Well, I've got a combination of pink eye and a really nasty case of sinusitis that is giving me all sorts of grief...so I'm having a hard time getting this update and pictures up like I'd planned to.
But, I couldn't wait for too long, so here I am (squinting at the computer screen), because I must get these fun pictures out for everyone to see!
On Friday night, we had the championship game for Sydney's softball league (the other team won the first half of the season; our team won the second half; and we had to play a championship game to see who'd be Champs for the entire season), and it was a very EXciting game. But we came up short...and lost by just two points!!
We were very disappointed, but we had a great time anyway!
Here are some pictures from that game (with Sydney playing second base), and then (the really fun part!) Gary getting soaked with water balloons and going for ice cream afterwards...
On Saturday, we had softball again. This time, though, it was for "Fun Day" with a game that didn't count toward our schedule and closing ceremonies...
We were just so sad to see the season come to a close! Even though the season is long and there are a lot of practices and it takes a lot of commitment...it is so worth it, when you get a group of kids and parents like we got this year.
Gary was amazing with the girls and taught them so much, and it showed in the way they played all year long. (We ended up with a season record of 16-3!)I know he is especially sad for it be over. (Although, in actuality, we still have a team party at the river next weekend so we'll be together one more time at least.)
(Because I didn't take my camera with me--insert really cute picture here of Gary and I out on our Saturday night date with our friends Tina and Nathan. We went to see "Star Trek," which was SO good!!!!, so you could insert with your imagination a picture of me all dressed up pretty for the night and doing the "Live Long and Propser" salute from Spock. And then maybe also add a picture, using your imagination, of us enjoying all sorts of good food and drink after the movies. Good times!)
Sunday was Mother's Day and we had a wonderful time spending it with my Mom and Gary's mom and grandmother. Here are a few pictures of the celebrations throughout the day, starting with me and Sydney after church (with the homemade frame she made for me!), and then with Gary's family and (on the last picture) my family (Mom and me and the girls after supper)...
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well!
Even though I think my eye (and my sinuses) are determined to keep me offline, I am going to do my very best to come visit all of your blogs. Hope to see you soon!
