Sunday Afternoon - by Brad

Lindsey went shopping this afternoon so the boys and I took advantage of the 50 degree sunny weather and played in the back yard for a while. Spencer enjoyed sitting in the grass and playing with sticks. It was a good thing that he didn't like to crawl in the grass because there is quite a bit of deer poop (recurring theme) scattered around our yard. He was safely placed in a clean spot.





Lindsey signed Elliott up for tee ball this spring, so we went out and bought a bat and a few balls. Then we went to a baseball field and played around for a while...





I hesitated posting this picture because there were several short lobs that Wesley actually did hit. However, I thought it was cute, so here it is...



Since I couldn't pitch the ball and take pictures at the same time, I gave Elliott the camera and told him to try to catch a picture of mom hitting the ball. Lindsey successfully made contact (using a 24" bat) and Elliott captured what I think was the best photo of the day...


We topped off the afternoon with dinner at Red Robin. Lindsey had the Cajun Clucks and Fries (as usual), I had the 5-Alarm Burger, and the boys split some chicken strips. It was a good day.

Great pictures and report on your day!! I made that picture of Elliott and Spencer into our screen background for awhile - such a happy image to grace our desktop.

I can't wait to go watch Elliott play t-ball. And Lindz...you look like a pro.

What a fun little family! It looks like Lindsey hit the ball straight toward Elliott behind the camera?! and she looks like she meant to!

I would never intentionally hit my kid with a baseball! That said, I did ACCIDENTALLY hit Wes in the leg a few pitches later. Good thing he is really tough!

I wondered the same thing about Lindsey's line drive heading for the camera! Nice hit, girl! Wow, I just totally did NOT sound like myself with that last sentence. Anyway, great pictures and stories.
