Baseball and Family Time

Caleb started his first year of baseball. We played two years of t-ball and we couldn't wait to start real baseball. My brother grew up on the ball fields and we have so many good memories from our summers there. My little boy is playing on the same fields my brother grew up on.

Caleb is fortunate to have his coach from last year. Caleb learned so much last year and we can't wait to see how much he learns and grows this season. He was able to hit in the batting cages for the first time last week and he loved it.

On Friday night, we bought his new baseball bat. He's really big for his age and he quickly outgrew the last bat. I think my poor husband just about had a heart attack after seeing some of the prices on some of the bats!

Caleb begged for "dinner with fire".... so we found ourselves eating Japanese after our shopping trip. He loved it!

On Saturday, my husband and brother went kayaking. Tara and I jumped at the chance to get the kids together. Levi was sweet and snuggly around his nap time. I so enjoyed holding him while Caleb and Zoey played. I haven't held him while he slept since right after his birth and he was still in the hospital. He's just precious and I am so thankful to be his aunt.

He looks identical to my little brother at this age. Sometimes it feels like I'm looking at my baby brother at times and it's really a strange feeling.

My brother and my husband have quite a friendship. I've watched it slowly grow over the years and I am so happy. Growing up, my brother just could not stand anyone I was in a relationship with. Secretly I wanted my brother to like whoever I was with and it made me sad when that just wasn't going to happen. I've sat back and watched my husband and brother become friends and it has just made my heart so happy. At first, I was a little sad. My husband had a better friendship with my brother than I did. But then I realized how awesome it was. I have prayed for a good man to be a friend to my brother and I have prayed for a good man to be a friend to my husband. I just didn't know it would end up like this!

It actually works out really well.... I get to hang out with my sister-in-law more often....both of them love kayaking so I know they're safer going together.... and we can all do stuff with the kids more often.
