On the two-hour trip to watch my nephew, Tate play baseball, I sat between an almost two year old squawk box and a five year old that talks until your ear falls off.
Here are some highlights from the trip...
- I told a "scary" story about a brother and sister that thought Frankenstein was in their attic.
- Connor turned my hands into stone hands and ice hands.
- At one point all three of us were reading magazines. Fitness for me, Playmobile for Connor, and Fisher Price for Addie.
- After a drive-thru run at McDonalds, Connor plugged his nose and said, "It SMELLS!!" He was referring to my cheeseburger. I was laughing so hard that I couldn't eat it. He told me to throw it out the window, because it smelled so bad.
- Later Connor asked us what monsters we wanted to be. He was the Headless Horseman, Addie was a witch, I was a vampire, Grandma was a mummy, and Grandpa was a zombie.
- On the way home we played the no talking game. The silence lasted for about ten minutes, then Connor whispered to me, "When is it over?"
The baseball game: Tate did a wonderful job playing ball. It was his last game of the season, so he received a medal too! He looked pretty proud. I watched him play catcher and complete two outs, hit the ball and run the bases, and play defense in the field. Pretty basic baseball stuff ;) I've watched a lot of kids play baseball in my years, and I have to say that Tate is a pretty good ballplayer. He listens to his coaches and really pays attention to the game.
