The Little League community gathered at the 4S Sports Park to celebrate the end our season. Connor got awarded his trophy for being on the Majors division championship team for the regular season.
Connor really enjoyed walking though a Roman villa and looking at all the ancient artifacts inside. Gavin enjoyed the tour we took about the architecture of the Getty Center.
Connor and I took a walk down to the park with our cameras. Here are some shots I got along the way.
Connor’s team won their last game of the season, becoming the regular season champions! They are the #1 seed going into the postseason tournament.
After the game, we grabbed our cameras and took some pictures of the animals at the Safari Park.
Gavin’s freshman team beat the Vista Panthers. Even though his main position is starting pitcher, he got some innings at 2nd base this game, as well as an RBI during his at bat.
This birthday was pretty busy for Connor. He watched his brother pitch for the high school team and then he had a baseball practice. After he got home, he finally got to open his presents and eat a giant birthday cookie. Happy Birthday Dokie!
We celebrated the boys’ birthdays by watching our first Angels game of the season. It was quite an action packed game, but the Angels lost to the Rangers, 16 to 8.
We went bowling to celebrate Gavin’s birthday, then had some birthday pizza at Pizza Port. Gavin wrapped up his night with some birthday brownies, which are his favorite. Happy birthday Bub!
After the boys opened their Easter buckets, we all had a fun day celebrating Easter at Kristel’s house. There was a giant Easter egg hunt for the kids, and a cake to celebrate Gavin’s birthday next week.
During the construction of the giant Diamond Valley reservoir in Hemet, archaeologists excavated the area before it was covered by water. We spent he day at the Western Science Center, which was created to display resulting ice age fossils and native artifacts.
We decided to give Gavin his birthday present nearly 3 weeks early, so he could use it in his upcoming games.
In the morning, Gavin has a game in Encinitas, in which he threw 3 scoreless innings. His team, the Del Norte Nighthawks, won with a score of 8 to 2.
In the afternoon, it was Connor’s turn to take the field. He did well playing 3rd base and left field, and the Padres won 7 to 2.
Both Connor and Gavin had their first games of the season today. Unfortunately, they overlapped, so we had to split who watched which game. Connor is on the Padres this year in Little League and Gavin is on the Del Norte Nighthawks freshman team.
This winter has been a wild one! We found snow to play in at the Santa Ysabel Open Space, about 30 miles up into the mountains east of our neighborhood. The boys had fun building a snowman.
