Ballgames, Beer and Nachos

Maddy had her first softball game tonight. She was originally scheduled to play last Wednesday, but it was rained out. She was very disappointed that she didn't get to play.


This is her first year to play softball. She has played soccer with the girls on her ball team for years, but never played organized ball. She's not too bad, considering her lack of experience. Or maybe I'm just one of those parents who think their child is a prodigy. *snort*


She was up to bat four times, and got a hit three times. She also got beaned in the ankle by the ball for a walk. The bases were loaded so the walk scored a run. She also was the first run to score in the game. Her fielding wasn't too bad, either.





To celebrate her stellar start of her softball career, we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant for tacos, nachos, and chips and queso.


She and Sugar decided to have a contest as to who could make the strangest faces. Because we're in public, you know, so let's act like goofballs.

Feel free to cast your vote in the comments. No prize, except bragging rights for the winner.

I vote for the second picture of Sugar, he looks like Mr. Potato Head. No offense, Mr. Potato Head can be very sexy!

You probably don't want to encourage that eye roll too much.....from either of them! Ha. They are pretty darn good at it!

I vote for photo number 2.

I just found your blog. I live in St Louis and remember so well the accident story. I have bookmarked your blog and will read faithfully.

Those are GREAT!!! I am sure dinner was entertaining.
I vote for the very last last photo, she has her hand on her chin and seems very comfortable :).

I have to vote for the second pic of sugar too, that is just too creepy and funny at the same time :)

Nancy R said...

Ouch. Can't vote. Looking makes my own eyes hurt.

Way to go, Softball Maddie!

I vote for the last picture...mainly because she's managed to capture silliness and with the hand on her chin, her serious competitive streak at the same time. I see a long, successful softball/post softball party career in her future.;P

I, too, think the second one of Sugar is the best. Love a man with a strong sense of self and humor.

Congrats to Maddy on her first softball game and batting .750! And an on base percentage of 1.000? She's headed to the olympics in NO time!
(Tell her to bend her knees a little bit. It'll help her be more comfortable and she'll have a quicker swing! ;) )
