Play Ball!

Finally: a break in the heat.
90 degrees starts to feel downright balmy.
Gives us a chance to get outside.
And play ball!
Oh, the smiles to be had.
The laughs we were blessed with.
Every good ballplayer knows...you've got to have somebody to catch what you throw.
A teammate to dust you off when you fall down.
To remind you that you're not playing soccer.
Or even football.
An infielder to cover you when the ball goes high.
Real high.
An outfielder to run it back in.
And then, of course, you've gotta have a partner for celebration.
Because that's the best part, after all.

That's a winning team you've got there! I'm betting on them, just based on the smiles alone!

Cute!!!! Did the outfit inspire the game of choice or the game inspire the outfit choice? We are all thinking of you in this last week of your pregnancy and can't wait to meet the newest member of the Snodgrass baseball team! One last belly shot would be great. Love to you all
