Saturday AM coffee

Morning folks!
Long time no blog eh?
We've been busy, but I suppose that's just  an excuse. If I really felt like blogging I would have. It's like anything else in this world we will make time for the things we really want to do and apparently I needed a little blog vacation. 

Lot's of things going on here, but all I've got on my mind today is baseball.
This is our first weekend with no baseball in forever it seems. 

Last Saturday was the playoffs for the fall league. 
The previous Saturday the boys got their butts whipped both games so they were a seventh seed - I previously thought they were sixth seed, but the Hubby assures me they were seventh out of nine. 

We got to the field just as dawn was breaking and it was freaking cold, wet too since it had rained the night before. 

First game was tight, but they won!
The boys were surprised and thrilled to be moving on.

I'm not kidding, Caden slid to steal every base he gained the whole day.

They had a five hour break between the first and second games which made me think the boys would all come back worn out and ready for the day to be done, but they surprised me and played fantastically!

 I still can't believe they managed to win the second game and they are moving on to the championship game!!
They tried picking Caden off - getting him out, at every base. 
Good thing this kid is super fast!

The third game started out tough.
They were down 4 runs to zero in the bottom of the second inning. 
Caden scored their first run in and I think that was the turning point of the game.
Those boys were not going to let that win slip away.

And check out this gorgeous sunset!
At first I tried to capture it without the baseball lights, but realized having the lights in the picture made for a quintessential baseball picture.

I sure love my camera. Slowly getting it figured out. It does some amazing panoramic shots.

In the end the boys won the championship in OT 8 to 6!

First place folks!
They are the CHAMPIONS!

My boy loved this league.

I am missing baseball already.

That is all for now. 
Have a great Saturday!
