Phillies Win Championship

Brice's baseball team played a great season, winning 14 games straight!  They ended their season this past Tuesday night by beating the Reds to Win the Championship!!!  It was very exciting to watch the boys' own excitement.  Although, the coach promised them a trip to Dairy Queen if they did win, so I'm pretty sure they might have been more excited about eating ice cream at 8:00 at night.  Justin was able to live vicariously through Brice that night as he had never won a championship game growing up.  Kind of hard to believe with all of the sports he played!  So, needless to say I had two pumped up boys on Tuesday night.  Pictures from our evening...

 Warming up for the big game.

 At bat.
 A little attitude from a little sister.  She was a trooper at all of his games and didn't lack for playground buddies with all the grandparents there.  Aunt Kelly and Aunt Tamie also shared some play time with Anna.  So thankful for all of their help throughout the season!
 This is how Kyle spent every game except one.  All the fresh air would knock him out most of the time.
 Although it's hard to tell, the Phillies won 8-6.  There are a couple bulbs out on the scoreboard.
 The champs!
 Kyle's first and I'm sure not last time on the field.
 Holding his trophy!
Now, hopefully, the St.Louis Cardinals can do the same tonight in Game 7 of the World Series!!!

These are so cute! I was scrolling through and thinking "oh, that's a cute one of Brice, that's a cute one of Brice, there's Justin on Mom's shoulder...wait a minute." Ha! And I'm proud of Anna. I know what it feels like to go to every baseball game. The plus side is, you usually get candy at the concession stand for being a good sister so it's a decent trade off. :-)
