End of the Season Party

To say that I am a little behind on blogging would be a huge understatement. I am not sure what happened this Spring, but somehow there just was not any time left over to blog. Now that the kids are out of school, the end of the year celebrations are over, and baseball season has come to an end, I am going to give it my best shot to catch up on some of the events that I didn't get a chance to post about during all of the mayhem.

First up is going to be CJ's end of the baseball season team party.

The AAA Dodgers had a great season. The Dodgers were third in the standing all season. They pulled out a fantastic 2nd place finish in the WGLL tournament. But more important than any of that they had a close knit team that played really well together, had a great time, and made some lasting friendships.
The end of the season party took place in a local restaurant that one of the assistant coaches manages. It was a fun afternoon with good food and lots of laughs.

The boys had a great time sitting at the team table and ordering anything that they wanted off the menu. Thanks to coach Dewayne, it was all on the house!

The little sisters had their own table. They had a good time socializing and acting like big girls having a lunch date.

After lunch coach Mickey gave certificates to each of the boys. Each certificate was printed with the nickname that coach Mickey had given to each player during the season. It was funny to hear coach Mickey explain how or why he gave the nicknames to the boys. CJ's nickname was "Chuckles." Why...because he made coach Mickey laugh so many times during the season with his crazy antics.

At the end of the party the boys went outside to take a ride on coach Chris's pedicab. It is a good thing coach Chris is in good shape, he had the whole team on his pedicab at one time.

It was a great season. It was sad to see it end. The team played great and had a good time. The parents got along good and had fun watching the team. I miss spending time with our Dodgers family already. This was by far the best Little League season that we have had. I am looking forward to fall baseball and hope that we are lucky enough to be on another team like this one!
