Jonathan's Little League Season

Jonathan just completed his first season of Little League baseball.  He was in the Instructional Rookie level of our league, which means it was coach-pitch and if the player doesn't hit the ball after so many pitches, he can use the tee.  His team was the Sand Gnats--not the fiercest name, but each team is named after a minor league team.

Ron was the assistant coach for the team and I think it's pretty safe to say they both really enjoyed it the season!


Kaitlyn's First Holy Communion

I am WAY behind on any sort of blogging, but I'm trying to go back and post some of the bigger moments that have happened this year.  Mainly because I love being able to pull up the blog from anywhere and take a quick walk down memory lane.  

So, a major event in our household took place just over a month ago...April 29th, Kaitlyn received her First Holy Communion!  I took the first few pictures a few weeks before the actual day so I could get some nice photos without a full church and being rushed on the actual day.

This was the only photo I got just before the mass started.  The church highly discouraged photos or videos during the service.

They did have professional photographers near the altar and Fr. Guest gifted everyone with a photo of their child during the mass.

It was a beautiful day!  Kaitlyn was quite proud and was even eager to go to mass again the next day so she could receive communion again.


VIPS at the Globetrotters Game

Last weekend our friends Chris and Katie invited us to a Harlem Globetrotters game to celebrate their son's (and Jonathan's best bud's) birthday.  Katie' brother-in-law, Zoli, is one of the producers for the Globetrotters and got us some great seats a few rows up from the court.  Shortly after we got settled in our seats, he came over to us and walked us down to even better seats--on the opposing teams bench! It was nice to get the VIP treatment!

A member of the opposing team was telling the boys they weren't
allowed to cheer for the Globetrotters if they were sitting on his bench!

We were excited that "Flight Time" was part of the team we were at.  We cheered him and
his teammate, "Big Easy", on when they competed in three seasons of The Amazing Race.  

We were even more excited when he came and sat between the girl on the bench!

Best Buds!

We loved watching "Ace", one of the female Globetrotters!

Zoli was able to get each of the kids a program and after the game, we got escorted around the court for a personal meet and greet with the team. 

Redskins offensive tackle, Morgan Moses, was at the game and took part in the game.

Katie and I had to hop in the pic with "Flight Time".

Here's a clip of some of the action:
