We had awesome coaches who understood that these kids were just four. They let them learn and have fun without trying to make mini all stars out of them.
His last game was cancelled because of thunderstorms, but the team got together for a little party. Cole was so excited about his trophy. The team mom even put together little baseball theme treat baskets and a tiny scrapbook for each player. Super cute. What a fun time of life we are starting to transition into.
P.S. Cole came home and told us that the reason they gave him so many things tonight was because they thought he was an awesome baseball player.
Next, here comes soccer!

Here is a short "er" report of our fourth with Andy and Melissa. After our picnic we went back to their house, which is just about the cutest thing! We had dinner, which was awesome. Melissa had this recipe from a restaurant in Utah and it was just about the most awesome thing...you should ask Andy about the "sauce". That night we decided to forgo the big show and went to one of their friends house for a little firework show of our own. Cole was still a little leery, as you can see from the picture, but by the end he would hold a sparkler. We were so proud of him for being so brave! Jack was only slightly impressed. He would stand and watched but soon grew bored and opted for playing in the car...I know not safe! We were glad that we didn't go to the big show because we got home, had the kids in bed, and then right when the show would have been going on, it started down pouring.
Cole, not a fan of the noise
Patriotic Jack, a little bored
Brave Cole and Mom
Step back Uncle Andy!
The whole trip was so much fun. We were sad to leave. Thanks Andy and Melissa!
