My Favorite Neighbors And Still Baseball

My favorite neighbors are back again, just like last summer. Rachel, Royal, Jayden and Willow rolled in from Kansas with their truck and trailer on Sunday. We have been counting down the days for the past 75 days. All day Sunday, Brendan and Wyatt about drove me insane with their excitement. They rode their bikes down to the mail boxes to "escort" the crew to our house and then the 3 boys reunited in a jump-yell-hug. Easton and Willow stared at each other and then Easton "died".

Royal is flying back to Kansas today and Rachel and the kids get to be my neighbors for the next few weeks. I could use the extra set of hands right now!

And as for baseball....
We are still playing baseball. The double-elimination tournament is happening right now. They both lost their first games and then they both won their second games. I think it will all come to an end on Saturday after Wyatt's All-Star game. Brendan's level doesn't do "all-stars" per se. You apply and then get chosen to be a part of the Tournament of Champions and it takes place post-season. We decided to be done! ...maybe Fall Ball??

And now for a picture overdose (mostly taken with my phone, so sorry about the quality).

Blackberries (the little ones) almost ripe right outside the trailer door!

Easton LOVES hanging out in the trailer

"hey kids, quit watching TV and look at me"
Rach and I left Royal with all 6 kids while we went to COSTCO. This was happening when we came home!

We ran out of band-aids on the first day.

She likes hanging out in the trailer, too

All we needed was some fishing.
