This year, spring has not only meant birthday parties but also opportunities to try some new things. Ric is playing on his first baseball team and Dominic ran in his first 5k. Both boys wanted to try these new adventures, but neither knew what they were getting in to. Ric decided he wanted to be a baseball player when he grew up because he loves singing 'Take me out to the ballgame' with my dad. Dominic decided to run a race with my DDIL, Lindsay, after running a few miles on a treadmill watching soccer with Jerry. Since D had no clue how long 3 miles really is, he led the pack for the first mile and then decided it was time to adjust his shoelaces :) . He ended up winning his age group, but not before he 'lost his lunch' so to speak.
My favorite picture of this group is the one with Ric at bb practice. I can't remember how old I was before I ever even saw a cow, so I think it is pretty cool that they are over there swatting flies during his practice!
