Last game of the year… 🙁

The boys went down in the tournament with a tough, tough loss.

 In this league, you can only score 5 runs in the first 4 innings, and
unlimited in the last two innings.

We got a huge lead, but they stormed back in the last two innings
to win the extra inning.

We are so proud of Little Man.
batting:
-Hit by pitch (he is alright)
-walk
-HIT !!!!
-Grounded out in extra inning to advance runner who
eventually scored and temporarily gave us the lead

He was also a solid fielder.

He had his best game in their biggest game of the year.

Someone dumped this poor little kitten off at work.

My co-worker took this feller home and adopted him.

His name: Wrigley

Pool Party!

I played tennis with our friend’s neighbor.  I did pretty
well considering I was wearing sandals.

Our beloved tulip tree died over the winter.  I got most
of it cut down.  My friend came over with his truck to
pull out the stump.

 Actually, it was a big let down.  He put the truck into
neutral and the tree came out.

My friend went fishing in our pond after the big “event”.

He brought his telescoping pole and caught over 10 fish!
(not counting this baby)

june-11b.jpg

This poor tulip tree had no downward tap root.  (which could have
been part of the problem)

We really miss this tree…. 🙁
