Little League World Series Photos

You know it's the end of summer when the Little League World Series comes around.  We got to go back up to Williamsport for the 2nd straight year and watch a couple of days of good baseball.  Today will be pictures from the weekend, and tomorrow we will post the autograph section from the weekend.  The cool thing about going to Williamsport is the different teams you get to meet and know their stories.  There were many great stories this year...Coach Dave Belisle's inspiring speeches, Jackie Robinson West as an all African-American team, and Mo'ne mania! We got to see a little bit of everything and that's what makes Little League great!  So here are a few pictures from the weekend with more pictures and autograph updates coming tomorrow.

Fish and Monkeys in Minor League Baseball

A few weekends ago, we got to catch up with our friend Luis Lopez and the Bridgeport Bluefish.  We always look forward to the Bluefish coming to town and getting to see Luis.  With our busy baseball schedule, this is the first time we got to see him this season.  We also took Kyle tonight so he could see the Cowboy Monkey.  He was so excited!  The Cowboy Monkey is on of the most popular acts in Minor League Baseball right now and is definitely worth seeing.  It was a fun night of friends, baseball, autographs, and monkeys!  You never know what you'll see at the ball park!  The Barnstormers won the game 11-3.
