Global Wildlife Field Trip

Greetings from Global Wildlife!  
Cille's first grade class had a wild time on their last field trip of the year...
This sweet girl was all smiles even though the morning was a little chilly...

Those of you who know me well know that I am decidedly NOT an animal person.  I voluntarily gave my two feed cups to Cille, but as it turns out, she kind of takes after me and was a little shy about feeding the animals.  Her sweet teacher noticed and came to help her out...
She ended up with a hand full of slobber.  Talk about no good deed goes unpunished!

Check out the reach on that tongue!
Cille finally found an animal that she enjoyed feeding, and promptly poured her two remaining cups of feed into his mouth...
He was very patient...
And that's no bull! (sorry, I couldn't resist.)

I was not sure about taking my eyes off this guy, but we needed a selfie together... #socialmediagoals



Back at the pavilion, Cille enjoyed a picnic lunch with her friends, and then chose a surprise from the gift shop for all of her siblings.  We had a great day at Global Wildlife!

Watts' First Baseball Game

My favorite little boy of summer had his first baseball game...
They're so short their legs swing when they sit on the bench!
Their last names are on their shirts.  How cute is that?
First at bat...
Check out that stance!
Squashing the bug...
Damon says we might need to work on this part...


If it looks like he is running fast, the photos are deceptive.  He was pretty nonchalant about his trot around the bases.  It reminded me of Stella when she didn't realize that she was supposed to be racing at swim meets...




Home run!

Please enlarge this photo to see the happiest little baseball player ever!  He was so proud of himself...
His sisters were proud of him, too.  They were "cheerleading" nearby with a friend whose twin brothers are also on the team...
I did not realize until the Orioles took the field that we created a "Who's on first?" situation when we named our son.  Oops...
Getting some extra tips from Coach Daddy...


Ready for action!
Watts worked up a quite a sweat out there!




He had lots of fans in the stands...





This is turning into a regular home run derby...











The cheerleaders were still at it...



Good game!
Team meeting post-game...

He even got an award! (Okay, they all did, but still.)
Prayer...

Go Orioles!

Watts is having a great time playing tee ball with his friends.  It has been a great experience for Watts and Daddy to have something special to do together.  I am sure we'll enjoy many more years of cheering for our Wattsy!
