"Hey Finn, no hitting baseballs in the house", I lecture.
"I know", Finn says, "I'm not hitting the ball...", as he disappears into his room with Calvin.
What were those boys up to? It was the wee hours of the morning.
Do you ever wonder what your kids are doing?
A few moments later, I walk into their bedroom.
There was a drumstick.
There were lots of Little People. And washcloths. Washcloths everywhere.
There were stuffed animals. With Little People and washcloths.
Oh and there were baseballs. Lots and lots of baseballs(and a truck or 2 thrown in for good measure).
Can you guess what they were doing????
Here's one more hint.
You guessed it!
A very fierce game of baseball under my very own roof: Little People/trucks vs. Stuffed Animals
Here we have little stuffed zebra up to bat with a truck in the background as the catcher.
Stuffed Zebra is the newest member of our household. Finn picked zebra from the treasure chest at school on friday. I don't know why he picked a zebra of all things, but I think it's sweet.
Zebra is getting nervous as the truck pitches a fast ball.
And Zebra makes a hit and gallops rapidly to first base...where killer whale really need to get with the program and run(um swim???) to 2nd base.
An aerial view from our blimp. Can you see tiny Cubby bear up to bat?
This is serious business. Cubby hit the ball, but unfortunately, the ball went straight to Eddie and it was an out!
In fact, that was the 3rd out. It's time for the Little People/trucks to join the dug out.(Notice there are 9 players, folks. This is a very accurate)
The stuffed animals are now fielding.
Orange Kitty is our amazing pitcher with fast balls up to 100 miles/hour.
I don't know how tiny cubby bear made it to Major League baseball. He must have some amazing skills.
And dude, here's zebra again, this time a catcher.
Sarah Lynn is up to bat.
Can you guess who won?
If you guessed the stuffed animals, you are correct!
And now, for the awards ceremony.
And seriously, WHAT IS UP with zebra getting the big trophy?
Zebra managed to nudge out Killer Whale and Orange Kitty, who just got ribbons. I have no idea what is going on in our house these days.
Each member of the winning team gets an award.
With their proud coaches in identical Millenium Falcom tees with too-small soccer shorts.Well, that wore me out. I think my days as a professional sports photographer are numbered. That is a trixy business trying to get good action shots.
