Tee Ball and a Dinner Party
Last Thursday, Thomas completed his first season of Tee Ball with the Logan City Leaugue. He was on the "Rockies" team and had a great time. The games were held every Tuesday and Thursday in June, so the season really flew by quickly. Since I've decided that we can only handle one sport per month at our house, the timing couldn't have been better!
Thomas loved hitting the ball, trying to catch, but mostly, he enjoyed messing around with his little friends on the team. There were several instances where the kids were having more fun filling their hats with grass and throwing them in the air than they were in actually playing the game. But, I think that's kind of the way tee ball goes!
Meanwhile, Gordon did all he could to entertain himself during the hour-long games. On Thursday, we made a couple of funny videos that he enjoyed watching over and over again. I decided to post them for the benefit of Gordon's little cousins, who will probably also enjoy watching the wild antics of a bored two-year-old. He's a crazy kid!
On Saturday, we had some friends over for dinner and bocce ball. Chris made his amazingly tasty teriyaki salmon, rice, and stuffed mushrooms. I made a salad and an inside-out strawberry ice cream cake. We also had some refreshing limeade and bread from Crumb Brothers Bakery with olive oil and balsamic vinegar to dip. Doesn't that just sound summery?
I had to take a picture of our table because it looked so pretty. And of course, my handsome cook!
