Birthday & Baseball

Last weekend was a busy one. Kate turned nine on June 4th. Where has the time gone? Seriously....I feel old. She ended up spending the day with Delormes because she didn't want to sit at Ryan's baseball games. Then we went shopping that night. You'd think a little mother/daughter shopping (okay Grandpa Wayne came too) would be fun. Not with Kate. She is only into scoping out junk. She likes to look at stuff, shows me things she likes, but wants nothing. And trying on clothes? Torture. She'd rather just look at herself in the mirror and make faces. Not my style at all.
On Saturday and Sunday, Ryan had a baseball tournament in West Fargo. The weather was perfect. Oh my god do I love watching baseball. When it's sunny, a light breeze, how does it get better? It also hit me that I can actually see the faces of the players. During hockey and football, you can't see a dang thing. Ahhh I love it. Ryan pitched the entire first game. He did very well, but the other team's pitcher was a beast. I don't even know if we scored at all. I can't remember. But the boys won the next two games, and took the consolation championship. Very cool.

This little guy sits intently during the games....for awhile. Then he grabs his ball and finds a stick for a bat, and mimics the big boys. So.stinkin.cute.

Sunday night after another game, Kate had her birthday party at Space Aliens. For the first time, I pared the number of guests way down. That, coupled with a few girls at the lakes made for a nice small party! Well how small do you get when you own family consists of six people? Ryan asked to bring two boys. At first I said no, it was Kate's day. Then he reminded me that he never had a party....okay I said. Plus these two boys are sweet. And they treat Brady like he's their little brother.

It was a good weekend. Crazy busy, but good.
The rest of the week I spent in a seminar. And guess what? in a few hours, I am flying to Memphis for two nights, Vicksburg, MS, for one night, and New Orleans for three nights. Hello!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
