Baseball and Easter

Dallas is playing in the Pinto league at St. Wendel Athletic Club this spring.  We are learning all the ins and outs of the league as we go, including fundraising.  The first fundraiser we did was Smoked Ribs and Pork Butts.  The league smoked the meat today during the scrimmage games.  Let me tell you, it smelled absolutely amazing!

In the Pinto league, there is no pitcher, but a pitching machine.  The boys get 4 strikes or 6 pitches off the machine before they are out.  An inning is over when they defense gets 3 outs, or the batting team scores 5 runs.  We play 6 innings or for an hour and a half.

Reba had Tball practice this morning at the same time as Dallas' game, so Doug took pictures for me.  Dallas was able to get 2 hits off the machine, but he was thrown out at first base each time.
There are two Pinto teams at St. Wendel, and unfortunately, the other team won today.
After the game, we came back to the house.  Pa, Gram and Aunt Josie brought some Easter goodies for the kiddos, and they were excited to see what was in their baskets!

You might remember, Julianne latched onto the Daniel Tiger Reba received for her birthday.  Gram thought Julianne would enjoy Katerina, but Reba has now taken a liking to it!

Aunt Josie and Gram then hid Easter eggs in the back yard.

The best part of hunting eggs? Checking out all the goodies that were hidden inside!

Until next time...
