soccer saturday & family fun

soccer, soccer, soccer the next month!
benj couldn't wait to play!  the team they played against seemed to be quite a bit younger (it is ages 4-6)& there was one little boy on the other team that sure didn't know how to control his frustrations, poor guy!  every time we'd score, he'd hit our players & stick out his tongue.  benj said his team just thought it was funny.
you can tell he was working hard out there!  & he scored a goal (or 2 - i don't know, he says 4!)

now.... onto miss g's game.  here's some shots of her practicing before the game to show she knows what's up.

now here she is during the game.
she's the one as far away from the action as can be!

this was her expression most of the time on the field.  she did entertain herself out there by doing sign language & giving me "looks" while she was supposed to be playing.

her favorite time was on the bench.

after a loong morning - afternoon at the soccer fields, we headed to the women's hospital 10th anniversary celebration near our home.  one super cool thing was that we saw the nurse we had when we benj was born.  she rocked.  i remember daddio asking her if our son's nose was swollen from the birthing process or what & she looked at daddio, his nose, smirked & said "no, i think that's just his nose."  he has his daddio's handsome nose.

& benj was tired of momma taking pictures.

the kiddos loved all the inflatables & games.
heading off for some more fun!
i just love it when they are getting along (which is a lot of the time)! 

got to shoot some hoops - kinda 
good form, buddy! 

ben wouldn't give up on anything!
gracie either, despite the fact that the vest weighed about as much as her!
 she looks a bit done for there!  i asked the lady to take her out at that point.

& gracie got to ride a pony!!!
yes, i took a picture of the horse's behind. 

this thing here kinda reminded me of the birthing process...
  see what i mean??
we enjoyed snow-cones, cotton candy & popcorn - can't beat that!

but, at this point, i knew it was time to go home... 
(she was begging for 1 more game, 1 more snow cone, 1 more trip through an inflatable - anything!) it was a long, fun-filled & "tired out" day like the kiddos like to say.
