On the road again!

IMG_1251On the road again!!!…reminds me of Shrek song!  Hmm..the cold mornings and smell of dirt on the field!!! After a long break, softball is bursting back into our lives.  We had our first tournament of 2015 at Salinas Sports Complex over the past weekend.  Oh, how I missed getting up at 4:30 am to go to watch a cold game 😉  Nah..I am being sarcastic here.  It was freezing in Salinas in the morning.

The organization my kids play for has doubled in size with merging of another organization with ours, so we now have two-10U, two -12U almost two -14U and I am not sure about the 16’s and 18’s.

It was a showcase tournament for another team but the funny thing was that in the finals it was our 10’s against our 10’s and our 12’s against our 12’s.  That has not happened in a long time.  It was very enjoyable watching our kids in action after a long time.  Also since the kids were playing against their friends it was a no pressure situation and all the kids enjoyed it.

Well our backyard batting cage project is still waiting for concrete pad and the batting cage.  It is going a little slower than we expected.

This is how my back yard used to look like…My husband and I actually designed the play structure ourselves.  I sized the beams so 3 adults could swing!


This is how it looks now, minus the tree branches…Sad 🙁

I have to call the concrete guy again…and now keeping my fingers crossed that my kids don’t quit softball for at least a year! 😉

Then I can get my pool 😉  The number of subscribers has surpassed 1030 now.  I hope time will permit me to add more content soon.

Happy New Year!!!
