Summer Through My Lens

Week 5

Monday was the Fourth of July. This has to be one of my favorite holidays. Fireworks, family, good food, parades, beach day and of course we celebrate my fathers birthday!

Tuesday morning i was woke up by the sound of thunder. It was a pretty intense summer storm and of course it arrived early in the morning. We took our time packing up and heading home. On the way we stopped at Cabelas to see if we could get a life jacket for me to use on our friends boat. We DID NOT buy this ridiculous coat guard life jacket but we thought it was funny how huge it was on me!

After dropping the older kids off at camp, the younger one and i walked around the trails. We just love this metal sculpture of a bee and a flower!

The president was in Cleveland on Wednesday. The next day my nanny boy and i saw this awesome plane coming in for a landing at the local airport. It was so big and flew right over the playground. He was amazed! We think it was a Boeing C17 Globe Master III (large military transport aircraft)

Swingin in Solon

Our niece Cally had another softball 🥎 tournament this weekend. She played Friday night, twice on Saturday and again on Sunday. We were able to make both her games on Saturday. She played right field, left field, 2nd base and pitched. She has grown so much as a player in just a short amount of time. She is quick to backup others during a play. She is swinging her bat and not letting good pitches go past her. She is fielding the ball and aware of where they play is happening. And she is one hell of a base stealer!!!! We truly enjoy watching her play. She is on a new team and there aren’t many other 9U teams so she usually ends up playing a 10U team. They won their first game on Saturday and to be there to witness the excitement the girls felt, was indescribable. i was so happy for this new (young) team of girls! Their coach was also so proud of them and treated them all to ice cream after their game on Sunday. Seeing them all grow as a team is better than winning any game!!!

Play Ball 🥎

It’s tournament weekend for Cally. Over Memorial Day weekend, Cally has many games lined up. She is on a young team and they’ve never all played together, but you can tell they are learning and getting a little better each game. I love watching Cally play a sport that i enjoyed so much!

Secret talent?
Clearing a huge age difference
Stealing bases

It was a fun family day! Cally has the best squad 😉

Play Ball

Summer travel softball is just around the corner. Last week my niece and her teammates were introduced at the local high school softball game. They got to debut their new uniforms and be on the “big field.” They loved hearing their names over the field speakers! I can’t wait to see her team play!
