We spent Easter weekend living it up in St. George. Of course there was sleeping nice and cramped in our hotel. (It actually was a really nice room with three queen beds. I am just used to having a king)
And then there was the hotel pool that the kids were so excited to swim in (too cold for me).
And playing games in our room.
But the real purpose for our trip was to play baseball with this awesome team of 9 year olds from Taylorsville...
and to watch this handsome, amazing all star!
There was lots of playing in the outfield, occasionally 3rd base, even a little pitching...
and lots of batting in the four games they played over the two days.
We were loyal fans roasting in the St. George sun while cheering on our Taylorsville Warriors!
Well some of us were cheering while the rest of us ate sunflower seeds and every other snack Mom brought or...
reading books and completely ignoring the game.
(Mitchel read 5 novels on this trip!)
But it was all worth it when our boys made it to the championship game on Saturday night and pulled out a victory!!! These kids are amazing players for as young as they are. Max has been playing with most of them for 2 years now and it has been so fun to watch them grow and learn.
They have great coaches who really know what they are doing and are teaching the boys all the right things, while having lots of fun at the same time.
They totally earned those trophies by playing hard and smart. I was so proud of them. Max was thrilled to go home with a trophy! It was a great way to start the season.
We had a great time as a family and are looking forward to a spring filled with baseball. Max will be playing on his regular Giants team during the week, and the Taylorsville team on Saturdays and for tournaments. Mason is also starting coach pitch baseball with one game during the week and one on Saturdays. We might end up just camping out at the baseball diamond! Love it!
