Been super busy over here beyond the craziness of the book stuff. We're off to Cali tomorrow to get my Dad's stuff. I'm super excited about it - can't you tell? Me, the hubby and my bro are flying up (SIL is watching the kids - that's Junie-beeee!!!) thursday. We're packing up Friday and Saturday then the boys are hitting the road. I'm flying back Sunday. Pray that we find my Mom's jewelry. Dad stashed it somewhere and no one knows where. I'm fearful it's lost.
Okay enough of that sad crap. On to what we've been up to.
Peter rounded us all a couple weekends ago for a little overnight trip. We took the scenic route to Globe...took us 7 hours to get 70 miles out of town. We went past the 3 lakes, Canyon, Apache and Roosevelt, drove 22 miles on unpaved roads, and stayed the night in a little motel. It was pretty cool. I shot a ton of pictures, these are a few of my favorites. I'm finally starting to get a couple good shots of all 3 kids together. Love that.
Noah's Little League baseball season is over. We had a fantastic year. Had a sucky record (under 500) but they learned a TON and I think they all had a very good time. Noah has always been good but this year he came alive. He's just down right fun to watch. Well fun for those who actually like baseball, Like me and Peter. haha
We had great kids and super cool parents. We befriended another couple and have been hanging out with them outside of baseball. Always cool to have someone else to chill with.
Here are a couple shots Peter took of Noah pitching. He's a natural shortstop but holds his own on the mound too. Might be obvious (or maybe not) that these pictures are not of the same windup...but you get the picture.
We are waiting to hear if Noah made the All Star team. Won't lie, I really would love it if he did. But being so young (youngest of all the nominated players, I'm told) and having to cut the list in half (28 were nominated for 14 spots) I won't be surprised if they don't select him this year. That would be fine too. I'm really just missing baseball already. Like I said, it was a fun season.
Here's a couple more pics from the 10 mile an hour trip. Everyone likes a blooming cactus, right? Oh sure you do. And those kids. Of cute are them little shits!?!?!
Okay, I'll admit, you can barely see them but trust me. They are stinkin' KEY-YUTE!
