Family Baseball

It's been almost two years since we all got together at our house. There were two nieces and a sister-in-law missing this time, but there was also a Thumper and a new sister-in-law-if-the-law-was-just. Actually, come to think of it, she was there last time, too, but we only kind of suspected then that she was family. Now we're sure.

Anyway, it was a great time. Thumper loved the early evening game of catch with his uncles, cousins, aunties, grandparents, and parents. He particularly loved that it was in the middle of the street, and he didn't even have to hold my hand! OK, it was in the middle of a barricaded, stubbed-out, dead-end, no traffic street, but still.

Thanks for coming, everybody! Maybe next time we need to make a road trip to Florida so the boy can learn the joys of running free on a beach instead.

Sounds like it was a grand day. As kids growing up on a low traffic street we actually painted our bases on the street and played all summer long. Great days. Thanks for bringing back the memories.

Oh, and the first paragraph was a teaser for your next post, right? Because I suspect there is an interesting story lurking there.
