Baseball Hangover...

This is where the baseballs meet the bows! Our weekend consisted of Braden and Cade both playing in a tournament in New Orleans. Between the two of them, we had 7 games this weekend. Bryce stayed behind, but Wesleigh was along for the ride. I have to say...she was amazing!

Today has been a hangover day, for sure. Between sleeping in a hotel and daylight savings, I came home extremely sleep deprived. I also got to take one of my injured players to the ortho today!

Here is my Cade. He was amazing. This was his team's first tournament and they went 2 for 2. We were so unbelievably proud of all of them. Cade pitched Sunday morning and was so good! He's alot of fun to watch and he's grown so much. He doesn't get rattled on the mound like he used to...solid! Cade's the one who got to visit the doctor today. His knee has been bothering him since football but I never paid much attention to it. He hit a triple and made it to third but after he slid, he couldn't get up. He got carried off the field as he cried. We took him in today and the doc said he has "jumpers knee". There is something with the tendon in his knee that has to do with growing and stretching. It was the best news possible! It will still bother him but he's not doing any damage to his knee.

Here's my Braden. His team struggled a little bit but we are so proud of him too. They went 1 for 3. I love watching him behind the plate....so cute!

And here's my bowhead. She was such a trooper. No nap Saturday because we were at the ballpark the entire day. To bed late and up SUPER early for an 8:00 game Sunday (with daylight savings), and we didn't leave the park until 4:30. She did not have one meltdown or fit. In fact, she never even cried. I could not have asked any more of her!!

Of course, ringpops never hurt ;) Actually, she didn't eat much of this one and never asked for it again. (thank goodness...they're SO messy)

I brought a bag full of "entertainment" but this was the best. Worth its weight in gold!

Sweet baby...we had a break in the games Sunday and I strolled her around until she fell asleep. It was a nice break for her...and for me!
