Ok did I really ONLY post ONE time last week.. That is so unlike me.. but it is summer and I'm never home anymore.. think we spent every day last week at the pool and at ball parks in the evening.. so just no time for posting.. But I'm going to do the weekend recap and then maybe later in the week if I get some time share with you all some other stuff from the month of June.. but ONLY if I can find the time LOL.
This weekend was another softball tournament weekend.. ONLY this weekend we also camped out and not just in our yard.
Friday June 26, 2009
We had planned on leaving 1st thing in the morning to go camping but it poured Thursday night and DH wasn't feeling well at all on Friday morning so we debated back and forth if we were going to call it off.. Around 1PM DH said I can feel sick here at home or there in a tent and I thought that would me I would rather be in air condition and in my own bed when I feel sick.. but NO to him it meant pack it up we are leaving..
We loaded up the van and took Mr Man over to my parents house where he was staying because he wanted to go fishing on the boat Saturday over camping and softball. and then we were off..
We got the main tent set up and I got the taco meat I had made at home and then froze into the crock pot.. and we blew up the beds and got everything looking nice inside the tent.. and then it was time for Princess to head off to her 1st softball game.. the fields were only 5 minutes away from the campground, which made things really nice.. IT was sooooooooooo hot so I thought I would stay back at the camp and send DH and Princess to her game, while I took Little Man and Sweet Pea to the beach to swim.. We spent about two hours maybe two and a half hours at the beach.. then came back and showered and while we were showering, Princess and DH got back from the game.. At that point we set up the screen tent and I got the rest of the stuff ready for dinner, It was a late dinner but it was a yummy dinner of taco salad. While we were eating the kids heard the ice cream truck so we let them get something, they loved that. Then we build a fire sat by it for a while and called it a night around 11pm.

the younger kids woke me up about 8am so I got up and got them breakfast, while DH and Princess slept till about 9pm when they got up and ate.. We spent the morning laying around and relaxing.. took a little hike on a trail next to our campsite and then loaded it up and was at the ball field by 11am. There was a nice little playground there so I took the kids there to play until Princess's game started.. Her game didn't get underway till 12:30pm at which time we went and watched it.. they won.. she had a little break between games where we all went and sat under the shade and ate lunch.. then we went back and watched the 2nd game which we won also. They only had two games on Saturday and we were done by 4pm.. we took a little drive and waded in a river and then went back to the campground.. Princess had brought one of the other girls from the team to stay with us Saturday night.. It was still hot and sunny so we changed and went back down to the beach for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours.. came back to camp showered and made a firer because dinner that night was going to be pizza pies done over the firer with the camp cooker pie making things.. The kids got ice cream again and had some fun at the playground near our campsite.. then we sat by the firer again, the kids all went to bed around 11pm but DH and I stayed out by the fire till after midnight, then we went to bed.
Here is a slide show of our hike and at the playground.
Here is one of the ball games and our lunch time

WOO HOO I'm so excited... I have been trying all day long(Monday June 22, 09) to load pictures into blogger and it wouldn't let me.. and here it is 11:51PM and I was able to get the last of Sunday night pictures loaded. It only took me *14* hours. grrrrrrrrrrr blogger..
I'm not going to load anymore the rest of the weekend pictures I'll just make into slide shows.
OK it's weekend recap time again.. since I'm tired and really ready to throw the computer out the window due to blogger acting up.. I'll make this short and sweet.

Day one of another softball tournaments for Princess. The fields were about an hour and forty five minutes from out house.. Sweet Pea spent Friday night with my Grandma and Grandpa while the boys went to my parents house (luckily for us it was on the way) so we dropped them off and had to be at the fields by 4:30pm for a 5:30pm game.. Here is a slide show from the game on Friday night
After the game went back to my parents house picked up the boys and took them over to my IL's house(a block or so away from my parents) DH, Princess and I were going to spend the night there because it meant sleeping in an extra half hour in the morning. Princess had a 9:30 in the morning game on Saturday and had to be at the field at 8:30pm so cutting 30 mins off a 1 hour and 45 min trip sounded good to me. when Little Man was getting sleepy we took the boys back to my parents house where they were going to spend the night since they didn't want to go to the games on Saturday. But about 10pm we got a phone call saying there was going to be at least an hour delay on Saturday games because of rain.. and DH told me to pack it up we were going home, he would much rather sleep in his own bed since we wouldn't have to wake up as early so we got home about 11pm and was on the road at 7:45AM come the morning.

Happy belated birthday to my niece(DH's older brothers girl) Big E. who turned 13 on this day.
like I mentioned we were on the road by 7:45am Princess had a 10:30AM game then a 1:30pm game and the last game of the day was at 4:30pm it rained on and off a bit in the morning so all the games were running even farther behind then this.. so it was more like a 10:30 game then a 2pm and a 5pm game. Princess pitched Friday night game, and the last two games of Saturday(all 7 inning games so by Saturday night she had in 21 innings of pitching) Here is the slide show from Saturday game time.
We found a place to stay Saturday night with in walking distant of the fields so we wouldn't have to do the drive again, but mostly because Princess had to be there at 7am on Sunday morning. Our 2nd baseman S. spent the night with Princess and they went swimming in the pool in there sliding shorts and ball shirts LOL, then we got a bit to eat and then the girls went back to the fields and played at the park till it was time to walk back to the hotel and get ready for there early morning game. here are a few pictures of them at the park.
I was so tired that night I think I was asleep before midnight.

Happy fathers day..
DH took the girls over to the park at 7am I didn't bother heading over till 8am game time.. It was a good game even if I was tired. We won and advanced to the next round which game wasn't starting till 11:30am So we went back to the room, I hit the breakfast bar there and then packed our stuff.. and we checked out and had Princess back at the ball park at 10:30am Another great game only we lost and that was the end of the tournament for us.. Princess pitched both of these games also and they went all 7 innings, So she pitched 5 out of the 6 games and pitched all 7 innings of each game. she was throwing good, and not only that her sticks were hot also this weekend.. Good weekend for my girl..
Here are the pictures from Sunday Games.
We loaded up the van said our good byes till next weekend and headed home.. Picked up the younger 3 who were all over at my grandparents house along with my parents for fathers day.. Stayed there for a bit talking and wishing my daddy a happy Father Days.. then came home and gave DH all his fathers day gifts.. the kids came up with the idea to chip money and by there daddy a fire pit.. It's nothing extremely big but it was all there idea and I didn't even have to go out and pick it up, Mr Man picked it out and bought it himself while out shopping with my parents one day and the rest of the kids chipped in there part after he got it.. He is such a Sweetie I tell ya.. So Sunday night we threw up the tent and had a campfire and sleep out in the yard.. we were out sitting around the firer till midnight Little Man and Princess did not make it that long, think they were both out before 10:30pm
