Behind the Glass

Last Saturday we watched wee gymnasts tumble behind the glass when I signed the boys up for a summer class here.

Then we went to watch the doughnuts being made.  Wildman’s favorite part was the “Waterfall of Glaze!!!”

Little Leaguers receive a free doughnut when they come in in uniform.

So much for healthy snacks…


Little League Opening Day

Today was Opening Day for Beachside Little League.  Wildman plays for the Satellite Beach Phillies this season.  We lucked out and T-bone is on the same team.  They’ve grown so much since last year.

The kids arrived at 9:30 AM for individual photos…

and team photos.

Then the children got to play in and on the bounce houses that were set up.  The first order of business for my boys was the gigantic slide.  The Big Kahuna to be exact.

Big Red’s first order of business was to wander around on his cell phone with a huge 7-11 coffee and a bag of BBQ chips.  This is pretty much how you will see Big Red at any given moment of any given day…  He is super important, you know.

At 10:30 AM all of the teams marched over to the fire station to begin their parade.  The parade was lead by the fire engine.

J, Cutie Pie and I staked our claim along the side of the road to wait for Wildman.

The t-ball teams followed the fire engine.

After Wildman arrived at the ball field, all of the teams lined up for the Opening Ceremonies.

They looked so cute all lined up around the baseball diamond.

After the first pitch was thrown the kids were free to enjoy some lunch and the bouncy houses again.  My mom and Mimi showed up just in time.

More bouncy fun!

Just before we packed up to leave, the tug-o-war games began.  Wildman rushed over to give it a try.

It was a beautiful sunny Saturday morning.  Perfect for Opening Day!

Phillies Spring Training

Wildman is in T-ball again.  The Phillies (Wildman and T-bone’s team this year) practice every Wednesday and Saturday in February.  Games begin in March.  J took him to practice both days this week and was impressed by how far Wildman has come since t-ball last year.

He’s able to hit the ball off of the tee instead of hitting the tee and watching the ball fall off.

And he is fielding instead of picking grass!

Go Wildman!

Now if we can just get him to enjoy soccer as much as he loves t-ball…
