For most of my married life, it's an event that our family has looked forward too every summer.
The annual Church of Christ Softball tournament in Fairbault, MN
Our kids were toddlers then, now the boys are playing along side their dad
and my daughter has her own little ones to tend to :)
It's a team that has evolved and changed over the years, this year 3 of the early year originals were there. My husband (orange shirt), Russ (gray-green shirt) and Steve (green Jesus shirt).
This was Steve's 35th year of playing.
Over half of the team this year was related in one way or another.
"I got it, no I got it"......
Ben & Joe, (brothers) my husbands second cousins once removed
(are you confused yet)
Below Steve, (my husbands 2nd cousin) is snuggling my grandson
all the while missing his granddaughter's who are in TN
2nd cousins....twice removed
My two boys (right & Left), my son-in-love in the middle
Uncle Gavin taking a break between innings to play with Audrey
Uncle Brice got a smile out of Carson, aint nothing sweeter!
My guy.... He's still got it!!!
Cheering on our team...year after year
My daughter being the good mommy that she is
I love that my adult children still play together
Good times...you shoulda heard the giggles :)
Audrey has the full attention of Christa and Moose.
Who could resist that sweet little voice when it says,"will you play with me"?
See, I dont always have a camera in my hands :)
