B-Ball at the Blatters

John likes to throw together these last minute parties. If you didn't get a call, we tried. Let me know if you're interested and we'll get you next time. He invites families over for a scrimage of some sport or another and then we eat and swim and hang out. Friday night was baseball and we set up on the greenbelt.

The kids lined up and took turns going up to bat. We had the tee there in case anyone wanted to use it but I think every kid preferred John's pitch, even the really little ones!
The mvp was definitely Miss Gia who has quite a swing on her tiny little frame! She whacked that ball!
Her little brother Jace did a great job too!

Jake... who shared his base with Owen

Hannah...who whacked the ball straight into her dad and knocked him over thought it was so funny!

Alex...who posed at every base!

Owen...who ran around collecting balls and hugs from Calan

Gavin and Elise...

Neve and Maren...

The kids were all awesome and after several scores, we turned it around and the adults played while the kids all went in outfield to catch! It ended up guys against girls and we smoked them. We played one inning each and they got a couple of home runs but we got more singles and doubles, got the bases loaded, and then put Mel up to bat and she got us grand slams!! We'd score four points at once as opposed to their measley one! It was all strategy!!
After b-ball we ate and swam and had a great time. It was fun to see the adults let loose and do cannonballs!
Great night! Great friends!
