We had a fun time playing outside on the porch while we watched the rain gently fall. When it was time for a snack, I let Livy pick out what she wanted. There was one part of the snack that she liked a little more than the other, and I'll let this picture give you a clue...
Livy is always a joy to babysit because she's such a happy and well-behaved kid. I'm so glad I'm around to watch her grow up. On Saturday, I drove down to Midlothian to cheer on my nephew, Mikey, in his baseball game. He's a very talented pitcher with a bright future. I hate that his games are so far away though, because this was the first and only that I was able to watch this season.
Mikey pitched well and his team won! Afterwards, I went out to lunch with my sister, Jill, her husband, John, and 3 of their kids - Megan, Michael, and Joseph. We had a nice time and I was glad I was able to spend some time with them in their neck of the woods.
On Saturday night, a huge group of us went out to eat at Stratos and then played some Whirlyball. There were a couple of whirlyball virgins in the group, so that made it even more fun. You are pretty much guaranteed to have a hilariously good time whenever you play, and that night was no exception. My friend, Rebecca, managed to slam into the wall and do some damage, and my brother-in-law, John, somehow broke off a piece of the court. There were plenty of "oooooohhhh" inducing collisions and lots of scoop-stealing (reach over and yank someone's scoop out of their hand and throw it down the court!) It was a great time with family and friends.
