Doing some more mini-golf with the kids, and Brian and I each got a whole-in-one which was pretty cool. It was a beautiful day and we just rode our bikes there from the apartment. I hope we get another chance to go this summer, either here or downstate.
More pics of the kids playing. The summer went by so fast, especially when the kids and I are having so much fun. Brian and Lily play at two different fields, but Trevor pretty much stays on the same one. This week both the boys played at the same time, so I had to miss a little of Trevor's game, but caught the second half. One of the pics is from his big hit, and showing his bat off!!!
As part of Little League Baseball, we were able to be in the local Independence Day Parade. It was a little different than the last time we did it, and the float was a lot smaller. Trevor walked most of the way and was a little tired. Lily road in the truck while Brian and I rode in the trailer. Very uncomfortable, too...
It's not enough to see the Whitecaps at home in Grand Rapids, we thought we'd take a trip to Midland and see the 'Caps on the road against the Great Lakes Loons. This is the first time the kids have been to Dow Diamond, but Papa and I were here in 2007 as part of our baseball trip. They really liked the ballpark, especially the play ground which is a little bigger than the one at Fifth Third in GR. It was also the 'bark in the park' promotion, so fans had some of their dogs with them. The kids got to meet the mascots and had fun watching the game. Unfortunately the 'Caps lost, but we still had a fun time, and they want to visit here next season for at least one game.
This was a good week of ball for the kids. The boys played great, and Lily got her jersey and got her first game in 6-6 in game number one! Wow, she's just awesome. Trevor was swinging the bat well, too, and was starting to play third base on a regular basis at this point. He made some great plays. Brian kept on being Brian, and did a great job. Hard for him to want to practice, though, as he just wanted to get on with the games. You can see the weather turning extremely hot, too, as even the boys were wearing shorts to there games. It was a brutal summer, but not a lot of rain.
Another set of pics from the kids playing baseball and softball. Lily started her season a little later, so some of her pics are before she got her jersey. They are all playing so well and having so much fun!
