Ashton’s first Angels game…and DISNEY!

What an action packed weekend.

Saturday morning we woke up at 7am and got everyone ready for Ashton’s first baseball game.  AT needed to be at the field by 9:30am and the game was to start at 10am.  It started on time, but the end time dragged on and on and on.  Wow.  Was it a LONG game.  The kids kept tying the other team.  First at 17-17 then at 21-21, finally we lost at 23-26.  The game ended up being 2 1/2 hours long!  But Ashton went strong the entire time, not complaining once.  The best part?  Ashton’s favorite people were there, minus a few others 😉  Popi, Grandma R. and Papa R. were all there to cheer him on.  Not to mention, his whole family.  His brothers loved watching him…ok, so I lie.  Ethan ran around like a crazy boy the entire time while Eli sweated his booty off in the sling I wore him in.  But hey, we were all there.  And we were so proud of our biggest brother!

Here is few action shots of the big day…

“Hit that ball into a TOUCHDOWN!!!”

(YES, people, I do know enough about baseball that there are NO touchdowns.  But if you know Ashton, and if you remember his LOVE for Chicken Little, he used to quote CL saying this all the time.  Over and over.  Now, I can’t say that I’ve ever watched the whole movie to know if CL was playing baseball when he said this or not, but I can tell you that, Ashton LOVES to say it while hitting balls with Daddy.  So during the game, it took EVERYTHING in my being, to not yell out, “Hey PEANUT….hit that ball into a touchdown!”  hehehe)

Then after the LONG game, we came home and hurried up and showered, and Ashton and I hit the road to head to EPCOT.  He didn’t know.  But he did know that he was going on a date with just his Mommy.  That’s what we like to call our alone time.  It’s pretty valuable these days, and even more so, few and far between.  But that’s what makes it special.  Ashton held my hand and gave me tons of kisses.  He even asked for ice cream at the end of the day and said that I didn’t need to buy my own because, “I will share with you.  That’s what you do on dates!”  Yes, Ashton, you are right, and I hope you’ll always share with Mommy 😉

Here we are going on TEST TRACK in Epcot.

And after a LONG day on Saturday, Mommy was still crazy enough to take our date for one more adventure on Sunday and head to the Magic Kingdom.  Only this time, we brought our friends Heather and Wyatt. 

Look out Disney goers, Wyatt has a DRIVERS LICENSE, that Mommy lost and I’m pretty certain Wyatt reminded us for 20minutes that it was on ‘purpose-accident!’  By now, I’m sure his ultra cool Mommy made him a new one  🙂

Our little boys wanted their faces painted.  Wyatt is a dragon and Ashton is a Pirate.

And just as we are about to leave, we get our first group shot….hey, at least we got one.

The kids were great.  The girls got to chat.  Ok, I probably talked Heather’s ears off, but she knows me well enough by now, that’s just what I do 🙂

    Wow, that’s some serious 5 year-old baseball! Our tee ball games are only 3 innings and last about an hour, and we don’t keep score or count outs or anything. The whole lineup bats each inning, and they take turns at various positions. Alex understands the game from watching James and Bryan, but most kids are just learning the basics so they keep it really simple.

    Go AT! He looks so cute in his uniform :o)
