Take me out to the ballgame ... sort of

While my family was here, Nathaniel and Nicholas took the opportunity to pull Dad out to the backyard to show off their baseball skills. They don't play on a team, and they've had no practice, but they sure do love it.

Nathaniel wanted to practice catching with a mitt on.

There's just nothing like playing catch in no pants, y'all.

Nick wanted to practice batting. Batting in Little Einsteins PJs at 2 p.m. runs a close second to the thrill of playing catch in your undies.

Next, Nick took a turn pitching to Nathaniel.

And I use the term "pitching" loosely. (See the video below. We're lucky Nathaniel still has all his teeth.)

Soon afterward, it was Nick's turn at bat.

And finally, Dad ("Pop") pitched to Nathaniel. And Nathaniel got to run the "bases."

It was a glorious summer day, unusually dry and "cool" (in the mid-80s). Great day for running around willy-nilly in your skivvies. Just ask my boys.

My three favorite males! Love these videos. Shows how much energy they have (ALL THE TIME).

I know! I can't wait til the cooler fall weather gets here and we can be more comfortable running off all that energy outside.

Love it! I know Pop had to be loving that as well! Do the boys know what a good player he used to be, or may still be, for all I know! BTW, it may have been lucky that the boys still have their teeth, but from the video, it looks as though Pop is lucky to still have his nuts!

I'm not sure the boys are aware of Dad's BGK (Before Grandkids) baseball status. I'll have to inform them. ;)
