BIg Night for the Nuts!

Last night I fulfilled one of my dreams and showed my family the Nuts. We had a ball! It was a pretty exciting first three innings as the Nuts came out swinging and rose to a 14-2 lead, then they just hung around the rest of the night not doing anything - in fact neither team did anything as 14 - 2 was the final score. Talk about lop-sided! Things are looking pretty hairy this season for the home team, the Inland Empire 66ers. Jordan supported the Nuts for about an inning and a half, then he lost interest and would go exploring. At the top of the seventh inning we were ready to leave because he was getting a little testy, then I heroically ran down a foul ball for him and, with his ball in his hands, he got his second wind.

Here are some Nut pictures:

I was proud of these two pictures I took. On this one the ball is visible about 6 feet ahead of the batter. It ended up being a strike.

And in this one the ball is just below the Nut's knees. (Click to enlarge)

My favorite pair.

The kid still gets his balls mixed up - he kept acting like it was a basketball.

Did you try the funnel cakes? Probably overpriced and not as good as the organic made-from-goat hair kind. Nonsense.

I'm trying to get down to 180 by thanksgiving, so there won't be any funnel cakes for me for a while.
Maybe I'll ask for one for Christmas.

Look how beautiful your family is! Our little Maisie is looking at the pics saying she wants to see "baby and the ball"- looks like a crush to me...
