Photo Overload

I have not shared photos in a while and thought I would give you more than you could ever ask for.

Will's ball team had a tournament on Saturday and we spent the day at the ball field for four games. Instead of going home in between games, we hung out and grilled hotdogs and let the ducks chase the kids.

Yes, I typed that correctly. The ducks totally chased the kids. And it was hilarious!

That white duck had it out for Will. Will must have been talking trash or something because that duck was hot. He would waddle after Will, stop and let Will think he was in the clear and then charge him again. He never caught Will but he did get a hold of the pant leg of one of the boys on the team. Both duck and boy were so surprised that neither knew what to do. And I, of course, did not have my camera.

Caroline, trying to talk to the ducks, fell in the pond. Luckily, it was not where it was deep. She is definitely no "Duck Whisperer." She quickly crawled out before, according to her, "those mean ole ducks ate her up!"

Will looks like he is running for his life...the white duck was not chasing him because he is clearly floating in the water right in front of him. He must have made some other kind of wildlife upset!!!

This is one of our many food tents. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and by letting the kids hang out all day long not one of them asked if someone could go home with them or spend the night. It was glorious!

These are the only game pictures I took. We lost this game 11-0 and so the coach banned all cameras (because it was the only thing different from game one to game two). Will draws a line in the sand each time up to bat and this is him, marking his territory!
Ready and paying attention...
Foul tip!
He hit the ball but did not run fast enough to beat the ball to first. This is his, "I wasn't out, because the guy's foot was not on the bag" face. Isn't he precious?

Caroline just told Mark he was "boy pretty". HAHA! Love the way her brain works. Mark was kidding with her and said, "Watch out or I'll slap you into the middle of next week." He was joking...but she didn't realize it so she said, "Oh yeah. Well, I'll just slap you on the middle of the leg...right now!" And she did! :) Will did not want to be outdone so he came zooming down the hall yelling, "You mess with my sister, you mess with me!" (he did not realize Caroline was taking Mark out) Onto the pile he climbed and the wrestling continued.

Will popped up out of the wrestling ring with a very serious look on his face. He told me he was going to start being nicer to Caroline because if Mark and I die, she is all he'd have left. Hmmm. Ok. Not sure how to respond to that one.

They are still pretty cute...even if I have no idea where they come up with the stuff they say!
