hit the sand a little, but brrrrjing cold and we had to leave. But The Queen liked it and was ready to hit the water, we had to hold her back. And her 3rd first was baseball. She has watched her daddy practicing with her brothers and has been dying to get back there in it too. Being the cautious mom that I am I just couldn't let her back there with a real bat. So on our trip to the grocery store we picked her up a plastic (fat) bat and ball. We got in the backyard with her this afternoon and she is pretty good at it. She had contact with the ball as much as she missed. And when she hit she could pop it to the very back of the yard over the swing set. And you know males genes, they were quite proud of that and so was she. She was grinning from ear to ear.
And lastly is our family wall. When we first arrived back from China, one of the first things The Queen noticed and would point at was our family photo on the wall. There was a big family photo amongst other photos of us on a collage on the wall. We didn't leave her out, what photos we did have we had blown up and framed and placed along with other frames, but she wasn't in the big family photo. So being the great dad that he is he had a us go and get a family photo done along with some shots of the kids. See our new wall and family photo that didn't make the cut.
