The excitement of the weekend kicked off for us on Saturday with Garrison's last regular season game... and it was a big one! Our team was undefeated and this game determined if we would be named champions or if we'd have to play in a play-off game to determine the champions. I was crazy nervous for a T-ball game!!
My #5 is the lead-off hitter and I was able to capture this shot of him walking up to bat with a little brother watching closely right behind the fence. So sweet!
It totally took me back to this moment back in 2013... My #4 up to bat (coach-pitched in wee-ball... craziness!) with little 19 month old Austin watching his big brother. They were both so little!!
After a really close start to the game, we were able to hold the other team and win 1st place!!! It was sooo exciting!! And nerve wracking! Gracious. Garrison had a GREAT game! He made 3 different plays/outs at 2nd base and had a good game at the plate and drove in some runs. Even though I was waaay too nervous for a T-ball game, it was a really fun game to watch!
We're super thankful for the amazing season the Red Trojans had...and for coach daddy... who was pretty awesome this season too. =) Now it's on to All-Stars for my biggest. Not sure why All-Stars are necessary for T-ball but we're excited nonetheless. Ha. Because Terrell was assistant coach for the "T-ball champions", he will also be coaching the All-Star team. So baseball continues for the Selph household for a bit longer. =)
They went to a local place called "Sneak a Peek" and the whole family went in to see Baby O together! It was such a neat place! And such a special experience!! We all found out together............................................. IT'S A GIRL!!!!!
It was sort of shocking for us to hear those 3 words!! Ha! Even though we really had no idea or feeling boy or girl, with us, it's always a boy.... so I think deep down I must've thought Baby O was boy! Hahaha! We are thrilled for the proud parents and so excited to meet our niece, Piper Caroline, in November!
And I must elaborate on the name. =) Piper is my mom's maiden name and my middle name, and Carol is my mom's middle name, hence Caroline. Such a sweet, special, southern, family name. We can't wait to meet her!!
After the appointment we all went out to eat together at our fave Mexican restaurant and Terrell and I made a quick run by the store to pick up a pink balloon and a congratulations cookie cake. We had the best time celebrating the news of Piper Caroline. Even though a boy would've been awesome because hello boy cousins and fitting right in, we are ECSTATIC over adding a girl to the mix. Finally! =)
Time for some family pics!
Sunday was another great day! We snapped a picture of our patriotic babies before going to church where we enjoyed such a special service. Then we came home for naps for the whole fam (glorious!) before heading over to my parents' house for a Memorial Day grill out and get-together.
We had so much fun! Granna and Papa prepared a delicious feast for us and the boys had a blast playing with water guns and running through a beach ball sprinkler!
And some tractor riding was involved too. =)
On Monday we all slept late and tried to clean the house before going over to Terrell's parents' house for another Memorial Day get-together. We were treated to another oh so yummy meal and the boys had lots of fun playing outside at Nana's and Pops'. There was a little swinging going on and a LOT of batting practice going on. =) We had a great time and made it home in time for naps. Yay for extra rest!
After a solo trip to the grocery store, extra play time for the boys with daddy, leftovers for supper, throwing everybody in the bath, reading books, and getting 3 little men put to bed, we wrapped up our long weekend relaxing on the couch and watching one of our shows. =)
Our official kick off to Summer 2015 was one of the best!
