Baseball Clinic, Naturals Game, and My Star

Summer time is here! The boys and I finally got out of school on June 7th! We are not finished with our summer fun "to do" list; however, that hasn't stopped us from having fun! Sunday, after church, we headed to the Naturals (a minor league) clinic. I noticed the clinic on facebook, and knew the boys would enjoy being taught by some pros. After being split up into different age groups, we hit the fields. Parents were welcomed onto the field also, which I thought was really cool.

What the boys learned:

Tips for throwing and catching the ball...



...A fun technique they use to practice catching the fly balls.




...learning to steal bases!

learning pitching tips...



Finding out you can get hurt....



and that baseball can be hot and tiring!




But not too tired to get the baseballs and free t-shirts autographed...






After the clinic we went to Colten's for dinner. We all were recharged for the game!

Can you tell?


Caden was having fun after being on the big screen dancing. He has become quite the STAR this week! He was also on the front page of our local newspaper getting his diploma!





Spending time at the Naturals ballpark is fun.


Spending time with family....Priceless!

Wow I bet it was fun for them to get training from the pros. I love the shot of him hot and tired. What a memory. We will be spending all weekend at the ball park for a tournament.
