annual baseball weekend
Every year in the month of July we make our annual pilgrimage down to Lismore NSW. We brave the cold and watch our son play baseball for the Gold Coast in the Timberjacks Tournament.
It's a weekend we have loved since our boy was old enough to enter the tournament. A time to chill and relax as a family plus enjoy time with great friends.
Three days of very early games. 6.30am starts for the boys in the batting cages.
Sun, rain, wind, fog and freezing conditions. But what a FUN weekend!
I was lazy and didn't bring out the big gun camera, stuck to the iPhone, nice and simple.
DAY ONE = two games & two wins
DAY TWO = two games & two wins; putting them at the top of their pool plus dinner with friends at the local!
DAY THREE = two games, one win one loss; first game playing for finals spot, they lost this game, second game playing for third which they won.
Oh and gum boots are essential footwear down on the fields!
Alec had an exceptional tournament, great hits and fabulous outs on second base. Not just a proud Mumma saying this but the coaching team as well.
Way to go young man, you always make me smile.
