Father's Day Hardware!

We wrapped up another great weekend!
I worked yesterday to wrap up my weekend duty, then headed north
to Smithville to meet my boys who were playing Bomber baseball.
I was able to catch the second game of the day.
DH pitched for Joe's team since it was coach's pitch (normal coach injured).
DH likes being on the field, he enjoyed it.
It was getting late but we headed to take DH out for Father's Day in Bloomington.
He chose Texas Roadhouse.  

I ran into my boss and his sweet family there. 
We also saw 1/2 of Loogootee there including cousin Jaelyn..
who turned the big 13 yesterday!!  She was playing softball
in Greenwood for the weekend.

And we made it home in time for Sam to sneak a neb treatment in (pesky summer cough)
AND work his new Lego set that he saved up summer chore money for

We woke up bright and early this morning to head back to the ball diamonds
for an 8 am game.
It was a perfect day for baseball, those morning games were a bit cooler for sure.
Joe had an great day playing some great baseball today.
He worked hard at catcher, right field, left center and had some top notch hits!

This field had the strangest dugout set up.  But, it played ball the same as ever AND it treated us well.
We won game 1 and set up to play the semi-finals...we we clinched a victory in that game, too.

These dads replaying our 1st win today (or their baseball days, not sure which)

And, this was so cool. Dads warming up their boys for game 2.

Practicing the foul tip for the catcher.

Proud dad and his baseball boy!

Proud mama, too.

And, DH was good for the pitching again for games 2 and 3.

We saw a fair amount of this on the scoreboard...

But, came out with a big win over a great Orleans team (who had beat us on Saturday night)

Great win Bomber 8U, hard fought title!

All the Bomber boys and their dads - and while this isn't always possible ( I know growing up several years without a pop and even working during some of the games myself) but every player has his dad in the picture.  How cool is that?

Sam was so pumped for Joe's win, he was jumping up on down from the stands
and was the first on the field to see Joe!

These Loogootee Lion baseball players, love it!

And, special prize for Joe G this weekend.  He got the batting glove award
for being the most improved player (from his coach). Proud of this boy!
Ended with a cookout with Grandpa and Grandma...
back to work tomorrow so we can rest up (wink).
