Enjoying Fun Times With My Family.....

I just love this time of year....

The weather is finally starting to get really nice and I've been able to enjoy a few evenings a week outside at the local ball parks watching my almost "8" year old niece McKenzie play softball. She's doing AWESOME this year with both her batting and with playing in the outfield.

It's amazing how much she has improved over the past 3 years. The first year she started in T-Ball, the next year it was advanced T-Ball and this year it's softball with the coaches doing the pitching. She and the other girls on her team are getting really good at slugging that ball.

While McKenzie is playing softball, her younger brother and sister (the twins Hunter & Kylee) enjoy hanging out with the rest of us watching her play. The "twinkies" as I call them played T-Ball last year, but I don't think they really enjoyed it and they were not interested in playing again this year. Maybe by next year they will change their minds and want to play again. Guess we'll have to wait and see.


I have to say that these three youngsters are my most favorite people in the world and it's such a joy to be able to spend as much time with them as I get to and to be able to watch them grow up. I just wish it wouldn't happen so fast... LOL.

Enjoy the rest of your week and I'll be back again soon.

That is so fun. I remember going to Steve's Little League games. Loved those times. Kids are great!

So cute, enjoy every moment. Seems I just turned around and my nieces and nephews were teenagers and young adults! But they are fun at any age!

Cute little people! My favorite little person is coming today to spend the night! WHOO WHOO! This grandma will be tired after it I know, but so worth it! Still too little for baking cookies and gardening but we're getting there.

Cannot believe she'll be one year old in just a couple of weeks!

Your little ones are so cute--and enjoy them while you can, they grow up way too fast! My grandsons are playing baseball and loving it, they are 11 and 7, so I've been to some of their games and it is so much fun! Have a great weekend!
