What A Weekend....

On Friday, we celebrated Bennett's 8th birthday with a weekend baseball tournament in Kansas City. Sounds like crazy fun for an 8 year old and it was...even though mother nature totally screwed us. Everyone knew rain was coming, but didn't anticipate an endless downpour. We made it through four innings of our first game before it was called for rain delay...however, we were winning 7-3 and had played long enough for them to declare us victorious!! This was a pretty big deal considering our team lost to that KC team by 14 runs last year. Bennett went 3 for 3 with 2 RBI's and played great at first base. Our second game was rain delayed four hours, so we went to lunch and then back to the hotel. At 5pm it was still raining and the tournament was completely canceled. Of course, our hotel's late check-out was at 4pm, so we either had to stay another night or be charged 50% room rate to check out after 4:00. Ugh. We decided to stay another night. The kids swam and ran around the hotel with their friends and they considered the weekend a complete success!!! Enjoying a birthday sundae at Cracker Barrel Friday night. He had four grandparents, one great-grandma, Uncle Josh and Michelle, and Aunt Kathy join him in KC for the tournament...that's one lucky boy!

Leading his team in warm-up exercises. Unfortunately, this is one of only three game pictures I took. It started raining right before the game started and Cate and I had to watch from the car. Thankfully, Scott was able to find a parking spot right next to the field so I could watch the entire game. Watching Dora during the game. She's got the life.
We made it home around 2:00 Sunday afternoon. We're all exhausted and super crabby. I can't wait to sleep in my own bed tonight, but I have about four more loads of laundry before I'm finished. This week we have 3 baseball practices, 1 soccer practice, 1 soccer game, 4 baseball games and one fieldtrip...not too bad :)
