It's out of the park!

Chris' reffing schedule usually keeps him pretty busy from August until March. So he likes to take a break from participating in sports in the summer. (Notice that I said "participating." You know that he never really takes a break from sports altogether!) But this year he decided to join his dad on his church softball team. Chris was so excited to play that he bought a new shirt, to display the team's color, as well as some sexy black knee-high socks. He was quite stylin'. He was appointed to be the pitcher and may serve in this role for the whole season.

Mike is playing in the outfield. Once he recovers from his recent eye surgery, he'll proudly take his place back at first base. (He's that tiny person back there. I wasn't about to venture any closer to get a better picture. Those amateur softball players don't always keep the ball in the field of play, so I didn't want to risk getting bopped in the head with a runaway ball!) Mike at bat. As a birthday present to himself, Chris hit a home run! I actually caught the moment on camera. Here he is running the bases. I love the continuous shooting mode on my camera! Besides taking pictures, Mommaw, Avery and I just relaxed and stayed in the shade to cheer on the boys.
