It was a baseball game of four generations, our ages spanned 86 years, and our abilities were just as varied.
The youngest spent a lot of time exuberantly running the wrong direction and shrieking excitedly.
The oldest spent a lot of time laughing from the pitchers mound.
We lost outfielders, changed positions at random, stole bases and laughed until it was time to come in for dinner.
It was the most fun I’ve had playing baseball since Great Gramps last big birthday party!
Happy Birthday Great Gramps!
I’m linking up with Northwest Frame of Mind tonight and her 1 Day 1 World project. The game took place between 5:00-6:00 this week, click over to see what else was happening around the world in the five o’clock hour!
This looks like so much fun, what a treat to have 4 generations together! Thanks for sharing your hour with us. 🙂
I just found the 1 day 1 world project this week, it’s such a neat idea and it’s been fun to see all the different posts – I’ll be back! 🙂
So fun to have such cherished family memories.
Happy Birthday, Big Fink!
Fun times! I love the outfits 🙂
Yup, they are a hit! 🙂
Happy Birthday indeed! I can only imagine how wonderful this moment was for “Great Gramps” and the girls 🙂 Such a precious memory. Really great photos too!
It was a fun time, I wish I had gotten a picture of Jane, she was hilarious but I was too busy playing to take pictures!
I would have loved to have seen a picture of her. I was looking for her, but I can pretty well imagine what she was doing. I’m sure she had a blast.
What beautiful writing! In just your few sentences and photos I was there in spirit and laughter. What a wonderful post. Thank you for sharing your hour!
Thanks for stopping by!
