Kimball Softball Tournament


Sunday the 12th the Annandale Red took to the fields for their first tournament.
The girls where pumped, fans where excited and we didn't know what to expect.



The weather started off chilly and windy...
Pretty sure we where covered in dirt by the end of the tournament.




The girls won their first game 1-0...
Too close for comfort...

  


The second game they won 3-2...
Still to close for comfort but a few more hits to make it more fun.


Third game was another 1-0 win...
This win put them in the championship game...



These girls really came together as a team in these 4 games...
They worked together and cheered each other on.

Im pretty sure the fans where more excited then the girls when they won their 4th game 5-0...
It took a little bit for it to sink in for the girls that they won and got 1st place...
Yes they took this tournament home and won every single game!!




These girls got 1st place in their first tournament ...
I was so impressed with how well they played, their attitudes throughout the hot day,
and their encouragement for each other.


So proud of these girls...
Congrats on your 1st place ladies, you deserved it!
Medals are pretty cool looking too, added bonus.

Memorial Day

We spent memorial day at the cabin, with all kids...
The weather was gloomy and pretty cold...
but that didn't stop the fun.


The rain was pretty intense and it was a muddy mess in places...
The kids had their rain boots and sweatshirts on most of Saturday.


Even with the rain and cold temps that didn't stop them from swimming...
It was misting and chilly but these girls are crazy!



The boys got a lot of fishing in...
while the girls got a lot of playing in...
and I got a lot of reading in...


Sun Fish, Crappies, Rock Bass and more...
This boy wanted to fish fish fish...

Just need to get him to take the fish off on his own,
drive the boat and he can head out and fish all he wants!

We even caught a few wall mounters...
Bob, Sawyer, Myself and Alex caught our mounters for our family string of sunnies.


I finished 2 amazing books over the long weekend...
Both in which I couldn't put down and would highly recommend.


The sun decided to show up on Monday...
Of course the day we leave...



The kids made some new friends over the weekend..
Maybe life long cabin friends in the making.

They always have each other but its fun for the to add some 
new faces into the mix every once in awhile.


Thankful for the sun the last day...
a pontoon ride and the kids jumping in.
A perfect way to end the long weekend.
