Opening Day

Opening Day festivities were postponed a week due to the nasty weather, and it certainly was the right call.  We all came home filthy and exhausted, with sunkissed cheeks.

Here are some snapshots of our day:

Color coordinated brothers.
{and maybe a little shout out to Carson-Newman!} ;-)

Colsie had to get in on the action, too.  

Opening Day ceremonies - Coach Chip herding our friends out onto the field.
{I have a video of the big boys being announced but couldn't get any pictures as they ran out too quickly and were in the 2nd row on the field.

 Harper sharing her sucker and my favorite baseball moms.

Then we were home for a quick bathroom break and off to the first game.  

 {He's already got the strut to home place as well as the "yank on my shirt before I swing" downpat for when he goes pro.}

 After a couple strikes, H had a big hit that got him to first.  2 batters later he came on home!!

 And of course, even when the ball is still in the outfield, if the opportunity arises, one must always slide home.

This was the only pic I got of G since I had to go into the opponent's dugout to see his face. :) He did get on base later in the game.  :)
Emmy loves her some Colsie!  And sweet tball friends snacking together after their big brothers' game.

 We picked up lunch, came home and ate, some of us {coughRichcough} caught a power nap, and then we were off to Eastie's game.


Having your Daddy as a first base coach has it's perks.  
 I think he played the whole game with his mouth open.  Ha!

And sometimes, when you're waiting for a ball to come your way, you spend the down time filling your glove with dirt and dumping it out.  HA!
