So, needless to say, it was a little tough getting into Evan Jr.'s baseball games when he started a few years ago. I didn't know baseball. At all. I didn't know an activity where you can sit around and take breaks to eat sliced oranges and sunflower seeds even was a sport!!! But it is, and 5-year-olds are damn cute playing it.
A few years later, I find myself having fun watching these games! It's insane how much children develop in 2 years. I used to wander around the park during the games, stopping at the baseball field every 20 minutes to see if Evan Jr. was up to bat yet so I could cheer him on then get back to my regular business. Five-year olds are cute playing t-ball but, I'll be honest... those were looooong games.
Now his games are so intense and fun, and he is getting to be SUCH a great little ball player. I can't walk around because there is always something going on, and I usually actually understand it. This season started a few weeks ago, and he's on a team called the Angels. So far they're undefeated. Here are some pictures of opening day. Is that what it's called? Whatever...
The baseball bag is bigger than he is! He carries it like a pro though.
Little Angels... At least, that's what the uniforms say.

Evan Jr. and Nana!
This was seriously such a beautiful day. Maybe I can get into sports after all. At least when Evan Jr. plays them. Which is good practice in case we have another boy. Oh brother...
