Today was the end of the season picnic for Little League. There was food, games & most importantly, trophies!
It was held at Cranbury Park in Norwalk. There is the most amazing old tree there, that DH calls the "Monkey Tree"...where he spent many a day as a teenager.
We haven't taken them there in ages. But, after playing on the tree today, realized that I need to bring them more often. Both of the Bozo's participated in a potato sack race. For some reason I found the sight of them hopping around in the sacks the funniest thing I had ever seen & practically wet my pants.
Max came in 2nd.
Miles, who is not as sporty as his brother, was very hesitant about trying his hand at it. It took a lot of convincing.
But, he made it to the finish line, coming in last...but, getting a 3rd place ribbon anyway.
Then, it was a balloon pop race. The kids had to run to a middle point, sit on their balloon to pop it and then run the rest of the way to the finish line. At the last minute, he blast past the leader & won!
Seeing the joy on his face after winning was priceless.
Then, it was trophy time.
For Miles this was the whole purpose of playing a sport to begin with.
And, after proclaiming that he will "never play baseball again" at the end of the season, I think he may come back for more next year.
