Beautiful sunsets & sunrises, a growing puppy and more baseball.

Last Monday the twins played in La Quinta and we were treated to a beautiful sunset and a fun game. 

Zeus at 3 months and about 17 lbs.

Last Saturday the twins travel team had a fund raising car wash, it was a good success and the boys had a blast, the boys all get along so well and it's fun to see them together.  

Luke and Mason had another flag football game.  2 left and they enjoy every minute and take is very serious.

My dishwasher helper.  Or licker.

Zeus and his buddy Leroy roughing each other up, Leroy is one week older and lost a baby tooth chewing on Zeus's leg.

Someone was all tuckered our after his play date.  

NYE 2002 with Ty, Zach and Dean.  Ty is 2 weeks, Dean 4 and Zach 5 months.  

NYE 2003.

Spring 2009

And last week.  I love that they have always stayed in the same order when taking pics, buddies since the beginning.  

A beautiful sunrise.  We don't get clouds very often, but when we do, amazing.

Played in Indio this past Wednesday.  3rd and 4th inning Mason pitched and Luke caught.  Melts my heart.

Zeus made another friend, our neighbor Shirley's dog Angel.  Shirley left to go back to SD today and he keeps running to her front door looking for her.  Hopefully they will come back soon.

This happened as I was literally running out the door to drive 65 miles to Luke and Mason's tournament yesterday. Ty and Eric were at tryouts for Ty for a travel team, I have the keys in hand and go to call Zeus in from outside and he tears in, heads to the bathroom for a mouth full of toilet paper and skids around as much tile as he can then plops down.  Dirty boy.  Flower beds are the most fun to play in right after the sprinklers have gone off.

Tournament this weekend, brain cancer fund raiser during breast cancer month, we represented both colors.  

Moms got to coach the first game and I was a little nervous but it turned out to be so much fun, we had 8 moms and even though we were really not calling the shots we really got into it.  The boys loved that we were out there too.


Adrian and Andres

After a long Saturday, we got to enjoy a lovely dinner out with Kerri and Niko.  It's fun to be able to pop out for dinner and the boys enjoy the responsibility of staying home alone....and being able to build a fort in the living room without parental supervision.  

Luke today.  He had a single and a double, Mace a single and walked,  they played great and I was so proud.  We went an extra inning and ended up losing 6-7.

Coach Ruben, Malakai and mine, silly boys.

Playing some ball

 The boys have some friends who play football so we went to see a game a few weeks ago.  Super cute in their full pads but it was so hot!

Zeus checking out the chicks.

Ty has a reminder on his door to do his workout.....

When he fit in a glove.

Last Saturday the boys had their first football game at Palm Springs High School.  They played each other but no one was quite sure who won.  Which I suppose for bragging rights is a good thing!

I mustache you a question...

On Saturday Jake and Kari were visiting for the last night of their anniversary weekend.  We went to Bar and then to Trio for a fantastic dinner.

I lucked out in the in-law department!!

The first game of the Angels-Royals series and the boys were banned to the casita to watch....Eric was watching the Vikings inside.  They actually loved it, ate dinner in there, showered and Ty made plans to move in there when he turns 15.  

Someone found out that labs love to dig.

Luke and Mason had a tournament this weekend in Palm Springs.  The big cool kids hung out and represented our Elite.

Luke up and trying his skills at bunting.

After 2 back to back games we had all the players and families for a bbq at the park.  Burgers, bacon wrapped dogs, tacos, salsa, potato salad...we don't do this half way!!!

And then what do you do after playing baseball for 4 hours in 105 degrees and then chowing down?  Run around, chase and tackle each other of course!!

Our newest addition!!

The boys have been really pushing for a puppy the past few weeks and once I was ok with it we started looking.  We picked Zeus up on Sept 13th and he has quickly settled into the family.  

He is such a baby, he's go go go for about an hour then he just passes out where ever he is.  Eric and I have done a little work with him and he is one smart boy.  He is already sitting and mostly going to the bathroom outside.  He does like to chew EVERYTHING in site when his mind is to it, even if it's your foot, hand, arm.....

On Monday my littles turned 9 during practice. It is now their turn with the trophy, they are proudly displaying it and hoping for another soon!

His fave toy is the blue skunk.

He went to his first baseball game last night, Ty had a scrimmage, they ended up winning 26-6 and Ty went 3 for 3 with a single, double and triple.

His nap yesterday had him looking like he was checking under the dishwasher.  His belly is the cutest and I love the puppy smell!  His nickname is Chuy, short for Jesus which is what it sounds like when we call 'Hey Zeus'......
