Get Your Autographs Now!

The boys baseball season has been over for a few weeks, but I had to post these pictures of Cade pitching in his last playoff game that his assistant coach sent me because they are so darn cute!

The stare down...

The wind up...

The release...
Most kids are still playing "just for fun" at this age, but not him, this is serious stuff. I know all parents think this about their kids, but I'm telling you all, get your autographs now, this kid is a REAL ball player!

Happy 4th of July

We had a great fourth of July here at home in Tualatin. The holiday wouldn't be complete without the annual ward breakfast at the church building to start off the day. Then the kids enjoyed riding in the neighborhood parade - a good one I might add, complete with firetrucks, police cars, tractors, golf carts, 100 + kids, candy throwing, the works! I'd put it up against any neighborhood parade in the West. Then we passed the afternoon and evening with our immediate neighbors in quite the BBQ/Block party. The kids ran themselves ragged running around, riding bikes, jumping on the trampoline, fighting with water guns...then the dark set in and of course the fireworks came out...with all the family's stashes combined, we weren't sure we'd ever get through them all.

Bo looked like this most of the night, he liked the bright colors, but wasn't fond of the noise.
Tyler kept his distance, but watched with facination.
And then there was Cade, carefully planning out the order of fireworks for "the show" and always ready with the next one in hand to light off.
