500 Babies Go to a Softball Tournament

This past Saturday the 500 Babies went to their first sporting event!  Daddy was playing in a softball tournament and the kids were thrilled to get to go watch.  In my mind, it was going to go like this:  We go to the first game at 11:00, sit on a blanket, each a picnic lunch, watch the game, go home and take naps.  I figured the team would have another game or so and Billy would be home by the time the kids woke up. 

What I didn't figure on and what happened instead: the kids slept in the car on the way home from the first game and didn't want to nap at home and Billy's team kept winning and winning.  The winning part turned out to be a good thing, of course.  After a few hours at home I knew I had to get out of the house with the kids.  So we packed up again, grabbed some fast food, and headed back out to the field.
It's probably only the second time in our kids' lives they've had an actual Kid's Meal with a toy and everything.
And they were thrilled to drink milk from a straw.
But food lasts only so long, and the natives began to get restless.  So I suggested they try to push down a tree.
When they got tired of that we traipsed over to the playground for a little while.
After that, I let them mill around an empty field.
Keep in mind there's one more little one you haven't seen much, but he was there, too.
Needless to say, I didn't get to watch very much of the games.  But we all still had a great time.  And the icing on the cake?
The Masters Elementary Team won the Championship! Way to go guys!

How fun! It's challenging to keep the little ones busy sometimes. It looks like they had a great time!

Keep making those Happy meals a real 'treat'. :)
